I've been asked by the French magazine "Esprit Yoga" to write a blog on their website about my insights and experiences as a French yoga teacher living, teaching and practicing in New York City. The blog is called "Une Yogini à Manhattan". If you understand French, I hope you'll enjoy reading it here.

I'll write more posts in English in the near future but you can already read the one I wrote a few years back about the Sacro-illiac Joint.

With gratitude,
Céline


True Belonging

  A few weeks ago, I started to read the brilliant and powerful book from Brené Brown: “Braving the Wilderness: the quest for true belonging and the courage to stand alone”. If you haven’t read it, go and buy it today. It is such an important and precious read for everyone who wants to grow […]

The impermanence of things

  A little more than 10 years ago, I was teaching my very first official group class. Above is a picture of the sequence I wrote for that class. I was terrified!! Mainly I was terrified of failing and ultimately terrified of rejection. What if they don’t like me, what if they don’t understand my […]

Self-reflecting work

If you know me, you know that summer is my favorite season. I feel myself during the summer more than any other time during the year. And because I feel in a good place, it’s easier for me to reflect and do some introspective work. Even though I teach as many classes during the summer […]

The paradox of knowledge

    I came back a few weeks ago from teaching a Yogaworks 200H teacher training and a couple of workshops in Strasbourg, France and that thought came to mind: the more I know about yoga, the less I know! Since 2003, I took many trainings and workshops. Every year that passes I keep learning […]

The little voice in our head

  A few weeks ago, I posted this picture of Virabhadrasana III: warrior III, taken during my vacation in the Caribbean, on Facebook and Instagram with the following caption: “Me: I like this picture! The little voice in my head: BUT!! Have you seen the cellulite??!! Me: yes, I know… The little voice in my […]

A new page is turned…

  …but is it that new? I’ve always been fascinated by the enthusiasm given to the transition to the New Year. I love the tradition of celebrating and gathering to welcome the new year. What makes me think are the resolutions. How would, the passage from December 31st to January 1st, have the power to transform people and their […]

Ease and softness

Summer 2015 was a great millésime!! So many wonderful moments: my group classes and private sessions every weekend since mid-June on the majestic Shelter island, a trip to the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho to teach, some long walks on the beach, a nature simple but magical at the same time… I share with you […]

A feeling of gratitude

    A feeling of gratitude I’m back in New York after having spent 7 weeks in Strasbourg, France, to teach a Yogaworks 300-hour teacher training. It was a wonderful experience to be able to rediscover the French pace of life and ambiance after 15 years living in NYC. I wanted to share with you a list, […]
