Trained in the tradition of Krishnamacharya, we have created Yoga-Ways to offer a niche, very personalised and caring approach to Yoga. For us, the relationship with our students is at the heart of everything we do as we believe it is the key to help students grow and find their ways in yoga.
Co-Founder & Instructor
French born, happy mother of 3, I spent last 22 years abroad, mostly in Asia. Certified Yoga teacher & Yoga therapist (RYS500, IFY-Institut Français du Yoga & Yoga Alliance) and initially from a corporate background, I chose to turn of my passion for Yoga into a life-style and founded Yoga-Ways in 2013. Yoga for me is the friend who helps me find my physical and mental balance in everyday life, and be and stay healthy. My goal as a teacher is to provide suitable practices (postures or breathing techniques) to my students based on their needs, goals and limitations. This is why classes are always conducted in small groups (8 max) and adaptations always proposed according to student's needs. Outside Yoga, I enjoy being near the Ocean and “on” the water. I love sailing, kite-surfing and surf. I also enjoy cooking and spending time with my family and my friends.
"The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships." T.K.V. Desikachar

"Yoga is a process of replacing old patterns with new more appropriate ones.” Sri T Krishnamacharya Yoga has been part of my life for more than 10 years, anchoring me while I joggled between an intense corporate life and 3 kids. When I encountered the teachings under Krishnamacharya’s tradition, I understood that there is more to yoga than the flexibility and relaxation I could get after a 1-hour class and I started a personal daily practice. It created a space to balance the pace, to reflect and be in tune with myself. I embarked on a 3-year teacher training programme out of curiosity and intuitive interest (certified RYS500). The journey has been life changing from the body to the mind. It played a crucial role on how I overcame major health battles, experiencing the power of breath and meditation. I have then leaped in and turned yoga into my way of living.
Being able to share such ancient and powerful tools, adapting them to the needs of each student, and planting the seeds of transformation pushed me to co-fund yoga-ways and teach yoga.
