“Silence is sometimes the best answer” ― The Dalai Lama

Om asato ma sat gamaya

Om Shantih shantih shantih

Lead me from the unreal to the real, from darkness to light, from death to immortality. Om peace peace peace. This mantra is the opening line to an ancient universal prayer found in the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad. There are many many wonderful mantras which can help us grow and become more fulfilled human beings. This one I believe, is almost “down to earth” for us urban people. It can be our refuge and our light in a myriad of circumstances we find ourselves on a daily basis. I find it incredibly broad and enlightening.

I often find myself singing that mantra while riding my bike. I find it incredibly broad and enlightening.

I am a 300hrs certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, which I did in India in 2015. I then proceeded to do my 500 hours with Olga-Ji.

My story? I am a French citizen, born and raised in Paris by a Bolivian father and a French mother. I studied ballet for years and worked as a fashion and interior designer. I then moved on to film dubbing as a dubbing actress and artistic director. I have been working fulltime and teaching yoga for the past 4 ½ years.

Yoga is a peaceful, beneficial, slow and rewarding revolution.

In all my classes, I believe I am driven first of all by the union between mind and body. Coming from a ballet background, when thinking of a particular area of the body, I just follow the natural path that emanates from that part of the body to the rest of the body, in a “logical” order of which areas will lead, and which will follow. I believe I tend to be drawn to detail and alignment.

Yoga is fun! Sometimes we forget that 😉
