Many years ago, I was impressed by a television documentary in which a Thai girl explained with lucidity and breathtaking calm how yoga helped her recover from the trauma of rape during childhood. I wondered what exactly yoga was, gymnastics? a philosophy of life? I wished to know more.
My yoga journey started in 2006 with Iyengar classes which I did before discovering vinyasa and thereafter Ashtanga vinyasa whose energizing and soothing practices fascinated me. I also included into my personal practice the shat kriyas - purification techniques that are highly effective for digestive problems, stress and insomnia.
In 2016, I graduated La Source’s 300-hour teacher training program. At the request of my colleagues, I give yoga classes at work. At the same time I continue my own practice and had the honor to participate in workshops guided by senior Ashtanga teachers like Mark Darby, Danny Paradise, Gregor Maehle, Laruga Glaser, Kathy Cooper and Doug Keller.
My wish is to be able to share the knowledge acquired and continue to explore that vast world called yoga.
