ABOUT LOIS NESBITT

With more than 25 years of practice, teaching, and training teachers, Lois is uniquely prepared to guide you toward practices that will best serve you and your students. Lois Yoga culls the best of the vinyasa (“flow”) yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, and Anusara Yoga traditions into a joyful, intelligent, and inspiring yoga that can adapt to students of all levels and abilities.

Lois began her practice as a teenager in France, and resumed as an adult when she moved to New York City. She studied first at Jivamukti Yoga, then moved on to practice 10 years of Mysore-style Ashtanga Yoga under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Eddie Stern. She met John Friend just as he was founding Anusara Yoga, and soon became a leader in the Anusara community, serving on the prestigious Curriculum Committee (which shaped the future of Anusara Yoga Teacher Trainings) and the committee that reviewed teaching videos for teachers seeking certification. Lois holds teaching certificates from Integral Yoga Institute, Yoga Zone, and Anusara Yoga, as well as the highest level of teaching (Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher) with the Yoga Alliance, the yoga world’s credentialing organization. She also studied two years of rigorous yoga anatomy under master Leslie Kaminoff and thousands of hours of yoga history and philosophy with world-renown scholar Prof. Douglas Brooks.

In addition to her yoga training, Lois holds a B.A. from Harvard and a Ph.D. from Princeton. She credits her fine teachers at these universities for showing her how to make the most complex ideas clear and exciting to students. Her lighthearted approach to life infuses her teaching with playfulness and humor. Indeed, she is unique among yoga teachers in the ease with which she can guide you into tricky poses, map out muscles and bones and what they do, and untangle the threads of India’s vast and varied yoga history.

Lois’ passion is to share all that she knows with the next generation of yoga teachers–that’s why she’s flying 22 hours from home to bring Lois Yoga to you, on her first-ever visit to Australia! Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to train with the best !

Lois’ yoga derives from the great teachers and grand traditions that have shaped her own practice and teaching. Primary among these are:

Vinyasa flow (Jivamukti Yoga)

Ashtanga Yoga (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Eddie Stern)

Anusara Yoga (John Friend)

Breath-centered yoga (Desikachar, Viniyoga, Leslie Kaminoff)

Lois’ philosophy draws on the full sweep of yoga history, including early non-dual Vedanta and the Classical Yoga of Patanjali. However, late Tantra provides the ground of her philosophy. Her primary philosophy teacher is Professor Douglas Brooks.
