I discover Ashtanga Yoga in 2007 in Paris and in Mysore, India.
The practice soon brings along a newfound and precious connection to my body and my breath.
I start a two-year Anusara Yoga Teacher Training in London (TriYoga) in 2013,
with Bridget Woods Kramer.
Since then, I keep in line with the teachers who have guided me through the years, such as Liz Lark, Elena Brower and Graham Burns.
I broaden my practice and my classes with gentler styles such as Restorative Yoga, and Yin Yoga, which I discovered with Sarah Powers.
I’ve been meditating since 2010.
The flow of the yoga poses had always felt like a moving meditation, and my first session is a revelation: despite its rigour, it strikes me as a powerful and essential tool for stillness, as simple as it is accessible.
I complete my Meditation Teacher Training in London (YogaCampus) with Michael Stone, a psychotherapist and teacher of Zen philosophy.
My classes are deeply rooted in Yoga and Zen philosophy, and I seek to create bridges through movement and breath awareness to bring these precious and ancient tools into our Western and modern lives.
