About Céline

about_celineA native of France, Céline has been living in New York City since 2000. Passionate about traveling and learning about new cultures, she first discovered yoga during one of her journeys to India. She instantly fell in love with the philosophy of yoga, embracing both its spiritual and physical aspects. She has been a dedicated yoga practitioner ever since and has committed herself to a conscious exploration of Yoga. After several trainings in Rishikesh, India with Karin O’Bannon, an Intermediate Senior Level III Iyengar yoga instructor, Céline went on to obtain her 500-hour Yoga Alliance registered certification in New York. She’s now an ERYT-500.
A lifelong student, she’s currently studying with Alison West as well as with Rodney and Colleen Yee Saidman. Céline is also a Yogaworks Certified instructor and a teacher trainer for the Yogaworks Teacher Training programs in the USA and in France. She’s regularly leading trainings in both countries at the 200-hour and 300-hour level (www.yogaworks.com).

Céline’s teaching style emphasizes the Iyengar precision of alignment combined with a breath-based flow of movement. Her knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology allows for a deep understanding of the physical body as a whole. She’s certified in back care and scoliosis through the Yoga Union backcare center (www.yogaunionbackcare.com) and is a Yoga Tune Up certified teacher, style promoting self-care and safe movements created by Jill Miller (www.yogatuneup.com).

For Céline, yoga is about reconnecting with our true self through cultivating awareness. She sees yoga as a pathway to greater harmony in life.

Céline currently resides in NYC where she continues to study, practice, and lead group classes, private sessions and teacher trainings. Her gentle and supportive nature is allowing students to find ease in their practices.
