The discovery of yoga allowed me to overcome life's obstacles more easily and calmly. Yoga has transformed the way I look at myself and life in general. It brought so many positive changes to me, both physically and emotionally, that I wanted to share and share this wonderful gift. This is the reason why I took a Hatha yoga teaching training at the International Arantha Yoga Center in the Netherlands in 2016. Yoga is an integral part of my life. I have been teaching it since January 2017. This discipline being very rich, I continue to train myself by following various courses and internships with renowned teachers and I practice it almost daily. Because being a yoga teacher means being a student for life ... My training in teaching Yin yoga (yoga inspired by Chinese medicine) with Joe Barnett (student of Paul Grilley, founder of Yin yoga) made me discover a completely new facet of yoga. This gentle notion of yoga made me want to explore this ancient practice even more and that's why I decided to embark on a new training course to teach Viniyoga with Philip Rigo in Brussels in September 2019. Viniyoga is a concept of classical yoga which means “just application to practice”. It is a gentle approach to Hatha yoga developed by Krishnamacharya and then by his son TKV Desikachar. “It is yoga that adapts to the student and not the student that adapts to yoga”. This notion implies that yoga is open to everyone. It totally corresponds to my vision of yoga because I take care to adapt my classes to the morphology, physiology and the level of each one. Convinced that yoga brings as many benefits to children as it does to adults, I trained as a yoga teacher for children at Catherine Nozeret in 2017/2018. I have been teaching yoga to children since September 2018.
Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa flow classes (Teacher certified by the Yoga Alliance)
My lessons are flexible and I adapt to your needs I feel the abilities and needs of my students, and I adapt my sequences accordingly. Generally, my classes are dynamic and invigorating. I work with the breath, and the student will find that a strong connection between their body and mind is accessible with sustained and conscientious practice. I would also do an inventory after a few sessions which will stimulate you to progress smoothly. My classes will focus on toning your body. Sustained practice will allow you to relieve and prevent chronic pain such as back pain, joint pain, while also using breathing and relaxation techniques. In doing so, you will be able in particular to straighten your posture (spine), you could refine your silhouette, soften your hips, etc. After a few regular classes, you will be fit, enthusiastic, open and positive. Yoga promotes moderation and wisdom. My goal is to meet your expectations and offer you a pleasant time at home, or in a group (as in a company). I gave daily classes every weeks for the last two years. Despite being a young yoga teacher, the diversity of bodies and needs I was lucky enough to encounter allow me to adapt to your needs, and we will find together solutions for whatever are your willing and needs in 2022. Teaching is for me a vocation, and I will be delighted to walk by your side for a part of your yoga journey, for a consistent and safe yoga practice. (this text is translated from english)

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga classes. Primary and Half primary series
I’m a professional musician - a classically educated pianist who has completed the 200h Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Training in Mexico and became a certified yoga teacher this year. My teaching is focused on helping students to develop their physical & mental well-being. That in ashtanga yoga tradition can be achieved through the connection between asanas ( physical postures) with proper breathing. I believe Yoga is a shared experience that requires equal commitment from the teacher as well as the student. I make sure that students have a solid understanding of the postures and their benefits. I adapt the Asthanga sequence to students' needs but I’m always ready to challenge them if I feel like it’s the right time. I hope to see you on the mat :)

Yoga for Beginners and Intermediate Practitioners.
Yoga is an often misunderstood and misapplied practice. Its universe is vast and I do not claim to comprehend it fully. Personally it is a practice for me to calm myself down and reward my body when agonised. The class will be structured around the student. Flexibility and strength are not requirements but benefits of a regular, dedicated, and committed practice. Depending on the student and the day the class may focus on holding poses, or sequencing them. This class will be useful to both myself and the student to learn more about our anatomy, as well as our nature. Yoga has been a part of my life since its beginning. I was born in India and studied in an Indian school where it was a regular practice for students. I look forward to a strong personal connection with my student where we take it easy or go crazy as the day calls. I like to explain things to people in a language they and their body understand. Yoga is not something that can be scheduled for 2 hours and forgotten about for the rest of the 22 hours. Eventually I foresee long term changes in the student's lifestyle. For example, what you eat during the day will affect greatly your practice in the night. All in all, my class will take an organic and personal system.
