A native of San Francisco, Louise Sanseau grew up skiing five to fifteen days a year. But between high school and college, she took a wilderness trip that changed her course forever. She fell in love with Wyoming and now runs a yoga studio in Jackson Hole, where she's able to balance her yoga practice and incorporate it into her backcountry skiing. “A good correlation between yoga and backcountry skiing is being mindful and present of every move and decision you're making.” Find more episodes from the Westward series here and here.
