About LouElla

Welcome to Awesome Asanas On-line Resource & Support

I am LouElla Gauthier,  Personal Trainer, Yoga Siromani , Fitness & Lifestyle Consultant


Exercise , whether gymnastics, running , skiing, bodybuilding –  has been a part of my life in one form or another for over 40 years! Being healthy  &  fit   has brought me to a place of profound gratitude! I am so grateful to be blessed with a  strong, fluidly moving body & sound   mind – especially as I’ve  come into my Golden Years! Postural yoga (asanas) in particular, has been instrumental in helping me preserve & maintain a healthy, flexible spine through out all my years of being BUSY!

I consider it to be both a blessing & a privilege to have worked with & taught all kinds of people; professional athletes, an Olympic competitor, lung cancer survivors, & people just like you. Many of my clients came to  me with specific physical needs & expectations.

Burdened with stress and trauma both physical and emotionally –  bound to bodies that didn’t work for them – limited, cumbersome, lacking in vitality,  the integration of stretching, isometrics,  asana practice, & breath work into their lives transformed their bodies (prisons) into confident, strong vessels of vitality!

My heart felt desire is to guide, support, educate, & inspire,  through my own first hand experiences  &  in a  tone & perspective that is simple, conversational,  & shared.    I look forward to being part of   your personal transformation & arrival at a place of confidence, strength & vitality, physically & mentally.

Looking forward to sharing future blogs and videos with you!

God bless, and Thank-you for joining me!
