Yoga teacher, 60
Melbourne mum of two Lou does yoga all day long – but not in a studio. A firm believer that fitness should be infused in daily life, she takes every opportunity to practice. On Instagram you’ll see her at the beach, in the park, on any structure that can support a pose. “I call it landscape yoga. I could spend an hour or more in a door frame and not get to the other side!” she says, laughing. It wasn’t until after the birth of her first child at age 30 that Lou began Iyengar yoga. “At that time of my life I was in a mess and [my first yoga teacher] said it would give me confidence. I couldn’t see how a physical practice could do that but it’s more than that. It really did give me strength and strength of character to make the changes that I needed to make in my life.” Thirty years later, Lou’s yoga is now propelling her rekindled modeling career, as clients adore the grace, calm and beautiful postures she can bring to photoshoots.
