Yoga is a somatic inquiry into the present moment – by cultivating sensitivity to what is actually happening in the body now through simple, accessible movements and shapes, the intelligence softens  and opens into a deeper consciousness. In doing so, we naturally become more intimate with life, more open to the present moment in all its diversity, more capable of intimacy with ourselves and others, and perhaps experience an easier acceptance of life’s constant changes.

The Dynamic Yoga Training Method taught by Louisa Raszyk encourages the awareness and expression of innate interconnectedness that is the intelligence of the human body.

Traditionally in India, « yoga » was more often associated with seated meditation , but Western influence in India from the late 1800’s, and the propagation of yoga in the West from the mid 20th century have placed a much stronger emphasis on the physical aspect of the practice, fed by the performance and competitive-based conditioning of the Western mind. The Dynamic Yoga Training Method  proposes something quite different –  yoga as an inquiry into what is actually happening via a systematic sensitization of the body, going beyond superficial notions of strength-training and flexibility-training.


I am a Senior Dynamic Yoga, practicing yoga since 1989 and teaching since 1998.

I first encountered yoga in India in 1989. I was largely self taught, with a passionate daily practice until meeting Godfrey Devereux ( in 1996. In a career dedicated exclusively to body-mind therapy, I established the Red Earth Centre in Paris 2004 as a “centre for global body investigation” revolving around a core of Dynamic Yoga, dance and shiatsu. I am also the mother of two small children.

I teach yoga classes and retreats internationally, mostly in Paris at my dear little Red Earth Centre, Esperance (Western Australia) and Bali, Indonesia. I am also a shiatsu practitioner and enjoy writing.


“I have been doing a bit of yoga on and off for more than 10 years now.  More often not practicing than practicing.  Since I have started with Louisa at the Red Earth Centre, two years ago, I love her style of teaching and find myself practicing regularly.  Louisa is not only technically well trained in how to rejuvenate and relax the body and mind, but she is also intuitive in her practice which brings a warm ambiance to her class.  I am always amazed by how I feel with even the slightest adjustments in my poses corrected by her. It opens up a whole other level of understanding my own body which I wouldn’t have discovered or felt.  I always walk out of her class feeling great!”  – Mitzi, Paris
