My purpose & approach to Yoga as a teacher
I am from Brittany, France, though I have spent most of my adult life abroad. I have lived in Lisbon with my family since 2019. Before moving to Lisbon, I had spent 20 years in Asia, where my passion for Yoga has become a lifestyle.
As a yoga teacher my purpose is to pass on the precious and profound teachings of yoga to others to improve their life the way it has improved mine.
- weekly yoga & meditation group classes. prenatal yoga and postnatal yoga
- regular thematic workshops and retreats
- and mostly give individual yoga therapy consultations in Lisbon and online.
To make a change in your life with Yoga, a tailor-made approach is the best and most of my students like to combine one-to-one classes & group classes.
I am a trained Yoga Therapist in the tradition of Professor Krishnamacharya and his son, Mr TKV Desikachar, whose teachings are perpetuated at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India. I founded my school of Yoga in Singapore in 2014 (Yoga Therapy – Yoga Ways) and then in Lisbon in 2019. I love helping my students to take ownership of their health & deal with physical or emotional issues with less medical support. Classes are always in small groups providing highly personalised advice to all my students.
- Prenatal & Postpartum Yoga
- Back therapy / Yoga for back pain
- Individual life coaching through Yoga Therapy
- Yoga Philosophy: The yoga sūtra of Patañjali, Yoga & Ayurveda, the anatomy of yoga (the pañcamaya system, the ćakra system).
“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
My Yoga background & certifications
I am a Certified Yoga teacher & Yoga Therapist in the tradition of Krishnamacharya.
I took my first 2-year Teacher Training (RYS 550 hours 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).
