These are the words my students used to describe me. I truly believes that if we all embraced our truest selves, the world will be a much more spacious, more inspiring place. As Maty Ezraty said, “practicing yoga is a privilege. And with this privilege, comes a duty.” A duty to share our stories and passion. This is what I believe in, in everyone sharing their practice and spreading our lights. It is my goal, intention and purpose: to fan YOUR inner flames.
One of my teachers in Canada prompted me to become a yoga teacher in 2008. Then eventually, I apprenticed under some of the most skilled yoga teachers, I joined a Yoga Teacher Training faculty at Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio in Canada as a teacher trainer. I traveled through both sides of the coast in the U.S., Mexico, Australia and eventually, Bali, Indonesia. I created my own yoga school called Flying Elephant Yoga in 2014 and built a small base studio in Sumatra. My little nomadic family currently divides our time in South East Asia, France and Japan. My classes are based on vinyasa most of the time. But like life, it shifts and changes all of the time. In my perfectly imperfect way, I lead practices including meditation, pranayama (breath work), vinyasa, yin, and power in order to observe our minds and help lead more awakened life. It’s all about honouring both the traditional and the modern, physical and mental aspects of yoga.
