Get to Know Lou Meggiato
I’m Lou and I am so glad you are here to be part of my journey to make the world a sweeter place. Where community, love, empowerment and happiness are the purposes of life.
So who is Lou? I’m a mama, a partner, a daughter and a sister. I am a friend to many and many would say I inspire them by living my authentic life with honesty, joy and love. It’s taken me a few decades to get here but I’m still growing and learning.
My loves are family including my 3 cats, yoga, nature, trail running, hiking, being outdoors, my home on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia Canada, plant based cooking, crafting, aromatherapy, design and generally anything sparkly.
I am inspired by the world around me in all that I do. Creativity has been ingrained into my whole life starting as a child who expressed herself through art, to a global career in fashion and performance sportswear design. It was during these years, however, as a clothing designer that I discovered yoga and found a wonderful way to step back from the busy-ness of the world. It really allowed me the space to be, to think and to not do. Human being not human doing.
I loved designing but I found the industry was a hard place to be in emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. It was time to shift and so I emigrated to Canada from the United Kingdom in 2007 with a new plan. I took my first yoga teacher training so that I could find a new holistic path for my life. I admit that although it brought me a lot of joy, it also meant I spent so much time filling everyone else’s cup that I didn’t have time to fill my own. I felt like I had lost my way and eventually found myself burnt out.
I needed a change again but this time I knew I was going in the right direction. I needed to find a balance and find self care. That change came when my daughter, at the age of 5, became immune compromised. I had lost all hope as a parent of supporting her through the challenges she was facing. A friend introduced me, at this time, to these wonderful little bottles of love called essential oils. I finally had a natural tool that could help support both my daughter and myself, emotionally and physically. This was not something I could keep to myself, it was something I had to share with all those who, like me, had lost hope. All those who needed a way to move forward from being stuck.
I am so grateful that I can now support hundreds of families, women and men. Balance for everyone is different but having some healthy habits in place can lead us on the right path. Whether your needs are help and guidance with essential oils or perhaps slowing down and letting go with yoga love. Maybe it’s even the chance to see yourself in all your glorious light, beauty and truth, that the rest of the world already sees in you but you haven’t seen yet – let me help you get to where you deserve to be!
