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'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.
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!

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. 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 […]continue reading >
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 […]continue reading >
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, […]continue reading >
A year full of harmony and understanding I finally find the time to sit down and write my newsletter… The holiday season is always such a hectic period and the year started strong. I’ve never really liked this season of the year for as a kid, my brother and I would […]continue reading >
SEASON Autumn has arrived and along with it, wind and colder temperatures. Even though I can only be moved by how romantic and incredibly beautiful the turning colors of the leaves is; it is, by far, not my favorite season. From my experience and my knowledge in Ayurveda (Indian medicine), Autumn has the power […]continue reading >
