7 years ago, I discovered yoga when I was working with street-children in Bolivia. It kept me centered in a challenging environment. During my PhD in clinical psychology my interest in yoga grew as I found it got me out of my head, relieved stress and made me conscious of my body.
Since then I was hooked and practiced with great dedication. I took courses of vinyasa, sivananda, yin and hatha yoga and stayed for a month in an Indian Ashram to immerse myself into the world of yoga and Ayurveda.
In 2018 I did a Hatha yoga teacher training to deepen my practice and discovered I loved teaching. To share this passion with friends, I started organizing classes in my living room. Nowadays I have the opportunity to be teaching at Yogasala and enjoy the guidance of Benoit towards a more anatomy informed yoga.
In my practice as well as my teachings I pursue balance (or union) of body and mind. Every asana [posture] incorporates a combination of strength and flexibility, guided by the breath. The way our breath is flowing, can tell us something about the state of our body, mind and emotions. Therefore, turning inward and listening to its subtleties and nuances can indicate how we need to adapt our posture. We learn how to consciously relax in challenging postures to strengthen both body and mind.
