French born, happy mother of 3, I’ve spent last 20 years in Asia, where I started YOGA WAYS in 2013.
I am a Certified Yoga teacher & Yoga Therapist in the tradition of Krishnamacharya. I took my first 2-year Teacher Training (RYS500 Yoga Alliance) with EKA Yoga Institute in Singapore, followed by a 3-Year Yoga Therapy Training Programme (Yoga & Santé) with Anne Poirier & Michael Steinbrecher (IFY Institut Français du Yoga), a fascinating very practical course where I was able to study deeper the applications of Yoga tools in supporting physical and mental health. As much as I can, I keep developing myself through Yoga Studies and have taken several courses in India with Eka Yoga institute & Krisnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (Chennai, India).
Yoga to me is the friend who helps me find my physical and mental balance in everyday life and to be and stay healthy. I feel I’m on a mission to pass on the precious knowledge I have learned to my students.
I’ve recently settled down in Lisbon where 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.
