Meet Céline Chambat

Yoga teacher & Yoga Therapist

I am from Brittany, France, though I have spent most of my adult life abroad in Asia , where my passion for Yoga has become a lifestyle. I moved to Lisbon in 2019 with my family.

As a Yoga teacher, my purpose is to pass on the precious teachings of yoga to others to improve their life the way it has improved mine. I belong to the lineage of Professor Krishnamacharya and his son, Mr TKV Desikachar, whose teachings are perpetuated at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India. 
I am incredibly grateful to have Yoga in my life and to have met my dear teachers Valérie Faneco (Eka Yoga Institute, Singapore & Perth) and Anne Poirier (IFY-Institut Français du Yoga) 
Specialities: Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga, a one-to-one approach to support your physical and mental health & Yoga Philosophy.

My favorite quote:
“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. – Sir T.K.V. Desikachar
