Louise Solomon

Louise has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and Pilates for 18 years. Louise completed her Pilates teacher training in 1992 and taught Pilates exclusively in the early nineties (well before the Pilates mat class existed). In 1994, Louise attained certification in yoga teaching from Yoga Arts, Byron Bay. Being concerned with the high incidence of injuries Louise saw in yoga classes, she developed and began to teach her own method of yoga and Pilates fusion; Yogalates™ at the Suffolk Park Community Hall.

    "What a journey the Yogalates training has been! I have transformed in every way - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I am proud to have completed my studies with you as it was incredibly informative, comprehensive and the teachers are compassionate and full of wisdom. Thank you for all the energy and knowledge you have given me. I have had no anxiety or panic attacks since coming home! Lung toning has been great."

    "Coming from a physiotherapy background I appreciated the high standard of training provided. The level of knowledge in anatomy, physiology and application to exercise, with the focus on special needs and injury prevention is meticulous. The trainers are experienced, knowledgeable and inspirational teachers. They are also exceptionally open and wonderful personalities in themselves. They all have a strong ability to apply functional anatomy to optimize functional movement and stability for safe exercise and to adapt the exercise to suit all body types, shapes, and dysfunctions/limitations. The Yoga philosophy component is enlightening and incorporated well into the course with the involvement of a wonderful household yogi!"

    "Yogalates - what a ground breaking idea! I have thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the practice and I have every intention if returning next year – unless it is fully booked which it probably will be, once the ‘secret’ gets out. Il Bel Canto- Thank you for an absolute fantastic stay, great food, a warm welcome and magnificent view and rooms!"

    "What an amazing journey it was so relaxing at the retreat, Crystal and Tracey were two of the most wonderful people Ive had the pleasure of meeting. They made you very welcome and any concerns about you had where there may have been discomfort, they showed me other ways to complete a position or another way to do them. I have learnt more about breathing and my sit bone! There werent too many positions I couldnt achieve, I think I even surprised myself! The weather was kind for the most part I expected it to be warm (similar to Adelaides summers, hot and dry) and it was great doing the classes first thing of a morning, what a way to start your day!Breakfast was a great part of the day too not just for eating, but to catch up with everyone for a chat over some absolutely amazing food, my hat goes off to Alessandria!I was able to go to Siena for a day trip, I didnt have a car so Alessandria organised for me to get to another village to get the bus. Worth the trip lots to see and do there and easy walking around too.Thank you Bec for helping me with my queries and I hope to someday get up to Byron Bay to meet yourself, Louise and Lisa."

  • Review by Helen Baudet from France

    "I had been practicing Yogalates on my own for the past two years, with the series of Yogalates DVD, enjoying a regular practice under Louise's virtual guidance and appreciating the core strength I had started building. Having the opportunity this year to attend the Tuscany retreat and to meet in person with Louise and her students has been a wonderful experience. Louise is incredibly and impressively generous of her time, experience, wisdom and passion. Her care and attention in providing guidance and in recommending subtle, but powerful posture adjustments, transformed my practice and increased the benefits I already gathered from it. I have found in a short time a renewed, increased vitality; so grateful for everything I received and experienced during the retreat, in addition to the fun, the beautiful setting, food and weather. I will keep this with me for a long time, and hope to renew the experience next year!Thank you again for your beautiful presence this whole week. I feel re-energized and so much more grounded. Would love to have the opportunity to attend your classes more often! I am back to my DVD routine now, so much enhanced by your guidance and readjustments."

  • Review by Audrey McClay from United Kingdom

    "My name is Audrey McClay and Im 63 years of age. My daughter Alison was trained in Yogalates by Louise and became a teacher herself last year. Ali now takes her own classes locally where she lives in Limavady, Northern Ireland. Through Alis experience I became very interested in Yogalates. I bought a few of Louises DVDs and usually do an hour of Yogalates 5 mornings a week.In November last year I fell down a full flight of concrete stairs. I had various injuries, BUT [surprisingly] no broken bones. I am convinced that Yogalates has strengthened my core muscles and bones and this [with help from above] saved my body from more serious injuries."

    "Ali and I are just back from Louises Tuscan Retreat 2012. We had the most amazing time. Louise was assisted by Lisa this year. I was a bit in awe of actually being there [bearing in mind I was the oldest by far] and being taught in a class [face to face] by Louise. Louise normally just talks to me through my TV!!!I wasnt ever made feel too old to be there. I felt very much included and a part of the whole Tuscan Retreat experience. This experience confirms that, in my opinion, Yogalates is suited to all age groups and abilities."

    "Many thanks Louise and Lisa. I will treasure the memories. "
