• My Story

    Hello. I am Lou Hart.

    After over a decade working as a marketing executive in Hollywood, Yoga gradually became more and more important until eventually it became my way of life.


    in late 2014 I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to take over the management of our family home The Tallow Factory, a converted Tudor candle factory in the heart of the idyllic village of Dedham. My whole being wanted to leave LA and come back to my roots.



    My exploration of yoga has taken me through practising many different styles but when I discovered YogaWorks I knew I had found the perfect balance of alignment-focussed Hatha yoga and energising Vinyasa Flow.


    In January 2015 I completed a 200-hour teacher training with Yogaworks and received the RYT-200 certificate with the internationally recognised Yoga Alliance. By the Autumn of 2015, I opened my yoga and meditation studio in a beautiful room at The Tallow Factory in Dedham. I deepened my philosophical knowledge of the practice by completing the 500-hour diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2017.


    In 2018 I added Thai Yoga Massage to my training and later that year I also discovered the ELDOA™ Method of myofasical stretching invented by osteopath Guy Voyer, D.O. In 2019 and 2023 I completed ELDOA™ Levels 1, 2 and 3 with Somatraining, UK. Over the past few years, my daily meditation and yoga practice has connected me with more miraculous teachers, supporting my soul growth with Craniosacral Therapy, Crystal Reiki Healing, kinesiology, kundalini and astrology. I have organically integrated all of their teachings while also strengthening the voice of my own inner teacher to develop a unique practice that helps to reduce tension in the body and facilitate the flow of life force within and without.


    My intention is always to honour and embrace each of my clients' search for holistic well-being by providing the highest quality yoga and meditation classes to people of all ages and from all walks of life.


    As the mantra of my Alma Mater states, Yoga works for every body. Literally. So if you think that you're "not good at yoga" or "not flexible enough to do yoga" then come to one of my classes and I will show you how to make a start on the journey. It's by no means a quick fix solution, but with regular practice and dedication you will see improvements to your physical, mental and spiritual health.


    I am filled with gratitude for all of my Angels, Spirit Guides and Teachers, and their Teachers, who have inspired me to reach where I am today,


    Stephanie Phelan, Dearbhla Kelly, Amy Lafond, Janice Chiou, Jasmine Lieb, Elaine Fletcher, Wendy Shubin, Peter Bodi, Kate Pryor, Paula Rose, Cheryl Fenner-Brown, and Maggie Dewis.


    Let your inner light shine.


    Love and Light,
