6 years ago I made a deal with myself that I would meditate 20 minutes daily. 6 years later, I can count on the fingers of my hands the days I’ve missed my meditation. I started practicing yoga 15-16 years ago and while I was meditating on and off I was falling off the discipline […]continue reading >
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.
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 >

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 >
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 […]continue reading >
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 […]continue reading >
…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.
