Meet Luisa Ray

It’s a cliche to say, but it’s true: yoga saved Luisa’s life. It came at the just the right time and she’s stuck with it ever since. She started practising yoga when it was much harder to find than it is now – it wasn’t all over the internet, and there weren’t studios in every neighbourhood. Now it’s everywhere and she hopes its popularity will only continue to increase. She will always keep on trying to spread the message of yoga, and try to make it as inclusive as possible.
