Yoga, Mindful Movement & Anatomy teacher
I'm a 1000-hrs registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Independent Network.
I have a spine issue called scoliosis and since I was 15 years old I was told that I had to go every week to the physiotherapist to prevent my scoliosis from getting worse and becoming handicaped.
I lived many years abroad in different parts of the world as a humanitarian worker. I started to practice yoga in 2009 and it changed my life. Back then, I was living in India and to address my back pain I had private lessons for 2 years with an Indian yoga master, who shared with me his life-time experience. Suddenly, I did not need a physio anymore, I had my own practice to keep me healthy.
I graduated in March 2012 in the Sivananda Ashram in Orléans -France- as a yoga teacher. When I started teaching, people with different conditions came to my classes, and I was in fear of doing the "wrong" thing and offering them movement that could worsen their conditions. So I started my anatomy journey with Blandine Calais Germain -France- in 2013. I graduated in 2017 after 300hrs of anatomy applied to Yoga and writing a dissertation about the spine (of course!) and breath.
My other teachers are Leslie Kaminoff -New York- and Thomas Myers -Maine- with whom I undertook online Anatomy Courses from 2014 to 2017.
Today I offer regular anatomy workshops for yoga teachers and serious yoga practitioners as CPDs (Continuing Professional Development).
