Sri Louise is an independent performer and Yoga teacher currently based in the high desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Increasingly critical of the culture surrounding Yoga, particularly in America, Sri Louise created a blog titled PostYoga, where she writes on the Intersection of Yoga, whiteness, anti-racism, anti-patriarchy, anti-capitalism, cultural-appropriation, colonialism, post-colonialism and decolonisation. Her workshops are intended to affirm Yoga as a Moksa sadhana, a path of liberation that does not psychologically bypass the limiting social borders constructed by race, class and gender, but actually participates in deconstructing the cognitive dissonance that many Euro-Americans maintain in their quest for personal freedom and spiritual well being. She is a long time disciple of Swami Dayananda Sarasvati, who is a traditional teacher of Advaita Vedanta with a remarkable ability to bring the ontological self into unmistakable view.
