Hello beautiful soul !
I am here to share with you my love for:
Meditation, Yoga, Dance and Travel !
With 10 years of teaching Yoga, Meditation and Dance, I'm here to help you feel good in your body and mind!
I was born in the US but grew up in France with a very spiritual mother. When I was 14, my mother took me to India to live one year in Auroville. This journey in India did change my life. It opened a new world to me and taught me how to be grateful for what I have. My love for traveling started there.
As a former gymnast and dancer, I became a certified Fitness Instructor in 2009. I helped hundreds of people get fit and healthy. I led for many years, fun and high-energy Zumba classes to bring joy and burn calories.
But with my active lifestyle, I was burning myself out. I needed quiet time to nurture my spiritual side. So I decided to become a Yoga teacher in 2010 and train in the country where Yoga first originated. So I went back to India to do my Yoga Teacher Training with Sivananda Vedanta Center.
I started teaching Hatha Yoga in Sicily for three years, then Vinyasa Yoga on the French Riviera for seven years. I would travel and practice Yoga in Bali and Thailand.
Let me tell you how meditation changed my life!
As a kid, I discovered the Osho active meditations, such as Kundalini, Dynamic, Chakra breathing... When I was 14, I did my first Humaniversity AUM Meditation in Osho Pune Resort in India. It blew my mind away! I loved it so much that I would fly to Italy every year to attend the incredible Osho Meditation Festival. It became a powerful tool to help me overcome difficult situations in my life. So I decided to become a certified AUM Meditation Leader in 2009.
I came to Yoga for meditation. I discovered how breathing techniques and postures prepare the body and mind for silence and peace.
In 2016, I became a physical education teacher at a school in France. This job was so stressful that it led me to painful sciatica in March 2020. I had to be bedridden for three months. I ended up having surgery to remove a disc herniation. I lost my mobility for several months and learned how to walk again. It was a positive experience because it helped me to reconnect to my body and mind through adaptive Yoga and Meditation.
While I couldn't do the Yoga postures, I discovered Yoga Nidra. It is a physical and mental relaxation where you can reach an altered state of consciousness. It helped me to stay positive and heal. So I decided to get certified in Yoga Nidra in 2021 in France with Philippe Beer Gabel.
Now I have recovered, I decided to travel the world to continue learning, practicing and teaching Yoga and Meditation. I started in December 2021 with Mexico. Then I went to Costa Rica to attend a Restorative Yoga and Meditation Teacher training. Then continued to Colombia, Australia and Bali where I attended an Advance Yoga teacher training in Vinyasa and the philosophy of Yoga.
Now I live in Koh Phangan Thailand and teach Yoga, Meditation and Zumba !
