About Louisa From Humming Tree Yoga

Yoga Teacher Edinburgh, Corstorphine

I’m Louisa Hughes and I live in Edinburgh with my husband, Craig and two young boys, Adam and Angus. Keeping fit and healthy has always been a priority for me. Yoga is a great way to build strength and focus the mind. I started practising yoga around age 14 but really started to feel the mental health benefits when working full time in a stressful job as it allowed me that time to switch off. During my pregnancies, yoga really became a huge part of my life to maintain strength and prepare my body for birth through breathing, movement and relaxation.

Postnatally, I became fascinated with women’s health, pelvic health and recovery from pregnancy and childbirth. Yoga was the perfect postnatal class that I could practice safely with my baby, whilst meeting other local mums.

I grew so passionate about the benefits of yoga at the different life stages. I have a strong desire to help others like me calm the mind and build up strength and flexibility – whilst having fun. The yoga classes I offer are suitable for beginners with more advanced options if you choose them. I love finding new poses and sequences for my clients, whilst keeping it accessible.

Why Humming Tree?

Humming Tree Yoga

I’ve always loved being out in nature, especially out in the woods. I find it so peaceful and calming. I knew I wanted my business to reflect this feeling. I was born and spent a few years of my childhood in the US and Hummingbirds always remind me of being there and how relaxing it is watching them. (In yoga we also sometimes practice Brahmari, a humming bee breath which I find so calming, and can also be really lovely pre and postnatal.)

The tree symbolises family trees and I am here to support you, whether you are growing your family or want to join my family community, connecting local people through yoga practice.
