WELCOME

Move and flow with ease

SideAngleOyoa.jpeg

Hello and bonjour! 

I am a French-American Certified Yoga Instructor, and I have been a yoga student and practitioner for over 25 years. My main styles are Vinyasa Flow, Yin, and a combo Sculpt/Flex/Flow class, and my teaching is focused on improving functional movement, increasing mobility, balance, strength, flexibility and stability.

I like to bring a sense of fluidity in sequences that open the body, heart and mind to help relieve stress and tension and increase energy flow.

 

After moving to San Francisco from Philadelphia in 1995, I became a Kung Fu/Tai Chi Master in the style of 8-Step Preying Mantis. Then a friend and I tried a yoga class at Iyengar Institute in SF, and I loved it. After that, I studied several styles of yoga, including Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Bikram, Aerial, Vinyasa Flow, and Yin. 

I grew up bilingual in French and English and raised a family in Marin County, CA. I have taught Vinyasa Flow in a studio in Lyon, France, and I’ve led yoga retreats in Provence, France and Andalusia, Spain.

KALIYOGA RETREATS

I had the great fortune to be the Yoga Instructor for Kaliyoga in 2021, leading Vinyasa Flow classes and meditation in the mornings, and Yin Yoga in the evenings. Kaliyoga is a beautiful yoga retreat center in the Andalusian mountains of southern Spain that offers yoga, hiking, vegetarian meals, nurturing staff and massage and alternative healing therapists, and a pool and infrared sauna. I would recommend Kaliyoga for anyone looking for a yoga getaway in the mountains, surrounded by bird and donkey sounds, great people, and olive, pomegranate, and fig trees.
