Teacher: Christine Mathis
Christine began practicing Hatha Yoga in 2000. In 2011, following an accident, she discovered lower back yoga developed by Fredric. It enabled her to regain health and flexibility in her back. From there, she followed Sivananda and Ashtanga yoga courses with Fredric and Denise. In May 2013, she obtained her teaching certificate at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Neuville-aux-bois in France. Christine hopes that through the regular practice of yoga, students become aware of their bodies, their subtle essence and develop more peace, harmony, tranquility and serenity.
