My yoga journey started in London.
Back then I was working in busy fashion industry and I was living the big city dream. A nice income, a ever growing social life and very little time spent taking care of myself. I was a very hot tempered little lady and I was often leting stress overpowering my mind. I was advised to practice yoga in order to deal better with my cyclotomic mood. Truth is I didn't want to admit I had behaviour disorder and undertaking yoga class would have meant that people around where right... So I started by myself, in my living room, trying to understand how standing on one foot could actually help me on the process of dealing with my emotions.
Few months later I had the opportunity to travel shortly to India. I was not going there for yoga but yoga came to me during that trip.
I was staying in an hotel near a retreat and curiosity brought me there on the first morning. I met with a fabulous German teacher who managed to pull tears of joy from my eyes right from the start. Few words, few breaths and for the first time I felt connected to my true self and not to my emotions. I came to her religiously every morning for a week before leaving India, with a growing love for yoga in my heart.
Then came the time to move to Montreal and finding a flat right in front of the yoga studio Wanderlust was a blessing. My favourite teachers Adam Mamhoud, Chloé Robertson, Janie Pelletier taught me most everything I know and left me with a beautiful mantra : " Don't look down, look forward "!
After 3 year of almost daily practice, I decided to go back to the start to undergo my yoga teacher training. I flew back to India, in the city where I had my first yoga class. After my teacher training; I had the chance to teach in the very same shalla where I had my first real yoga class more than three years earlier!
After few month spent in India and Sri Lanka, teaching and travelling I arrived in Brussels where I start to teach full time yoga.
I felt blessed recently when Let's yoga Shiatsu welcome me in their team, alongside them for very relaxing yin classes.
I hope to meet you soon on the mat.
