Swimming coach for about ten years, some yoga initiation classes received during my training as a performance sports coach sowed the seed. I often wanted to take other ways but each time yoga was imposed on me, to the point of finally having convinced me to make my profession. The misunderstandings of life have led me to seriously question the meaning of this path. Travel, training and practice in India and elsewhere helped me to find the method that would bring to light my dark and bright sides and to have a better understanding, the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Subsequently, I was introduced to Kriya yoga by Shailendra Sharma (5th in the Mahavatar Babaji lineage). This practice brings me beyond all hope to what I was looking for, clarity, centering and a strong understanding of all. aspects of breathing. All the yoga teachers I met brought me a lot, but it's mostly the method and the diligence of personal practice that have transformed me. And this transformation continues today, lifting the veil of illusion a little more. I found meaning in life and a path to what we all aspire to: serenity. Yoga is more than a passion: I find my fulfillment in teaching, in the love to transmit to exchange and help others.
I do not speak about my training and diplomas in yoga because many people think that those who made the best studies are the most intelligent. For me it is important to strive to develop our critical intelligence and follow its deep source and not to fall into repetition and spiritual materialism, to become autonomous. And this is what I seek to highlight in others. Great gratitude to Joanne, Mark and Shankara Darby for the consistency and clarity of their teachings. In February 2020 I completed the Vinyasa Krama Yoga advanced teacher training in Chennai, India with Srivatsa Ramaswami, who is long time a direct student of the legendary T. Krishnamacharya. Yoga for me is not a physical performance but a therapy to bring it closer to its source.
