The closing of the Yogaworks Upper West Side studio last November got me thinking a lot about change. It’s not the first time I experience the closing of a studio or a big change in my schedule but this one, really affected me emotionally because it was my second “home” for the past 13 years.

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.
Having studied Yoga for 15 years, I’ve heard and read these two words “HERE NOW”, hundreds of times and even more. They represent a huge part of the philosophy of yoga if not its entirety if we have to summarize what the discipline of yoga is. But it’s only recently that they took their full […]continue reading >

On January 12th 2018, 20 years ago, I met the man who became my husband. Even I, can’t believe that we’ve been together for that long but I guess what they say is true; time flies. As soon as we met, we lived together so even though we only got married 7 years ago (yes, […]continue reading >
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 […]continue reading >
As I hear a lot of people around me having some hard times and going thru challenges, I’ve been thinking about how to navigate things with more ease. I also had my share of disappointments and heart breaking events in my life. As much as when we go thru them, it feels very heavy and […]continue reading >
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 […]continue reading >
I have to be very honest, I had a hard time to gather my thoughts for this newsletter. As the world feels more divided than ever and people are suffering, how can I close my eyes to ignore this and pretend everything is okay? Once we know, we can’t say we were not aware. […]continue reading >
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 […]continue reading >
