My Story

About my journey...



Originally from South of France, I grew up in a little town surrounded by nature and water. Via life’s various twists and turns, I ended up spending my early twenties studying and developing a background in Marketing & Communication. When I started to work in the field, I was lacking a sense of enjoyment and fulfilment and I didn’t feel true to myself. In 2013, I quit my full-time job in advertising and took some time off to explore the world. A year later, I landed in Brisbane where I started my yoga journey as a student. I was hooked from the beginning! I loved the physical aspect of it and the opportunity to let go of the mind’s busyness in order to connect more deeply with the body.

Beginning 2019, I enrolled in a 200h Yoga Teacher Training in the beautiful peninsula of Baja California with no expectations outside of deepening my practice as a student. My Yoga Teacher Training turned out to be a life changing and heart opening experience leaving me with a deep desire to share the gift of yoga with the world. I have been lucky enough to be able to teach in studios straight away after my training and I’m currently leading workshops and teaching yoga and meditation full-time.

My Teaching

Following my 200h yoga training from Yandara Institute, I’ve completed courses and additional training in Myofascial Release, Yin and Meridian theory, Mindfulness and Restorative yoga.

My teaching is fluid, slow, strong and always evolving. During my class, I share nuggets of wisdom and themes that everyone can resonate with. Each of my offerings includes breathwork, meditation and relaxation. You will have an opportunity to challenge yourself, to slow down and to become more aware of your body and thoughts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take a yoga class even if I can’t touch my toes?

Of course! Absolutely everyone can do Yoga no matter what your level of flexibility or strength. Variations are always given in my classes and you have the chance to work at your own pace. In studio, classes might seem too intense if you are an absolute beginner though, that’s why I highly recommend to start with some private classes or a beginner course.

Yoga is also about showing up for yourself and embracing the full experience whether you can do all the poses or just a few.

What do I need to start yoga?

Just a yoga mat, an open-mind and willingness to learn. If you commit to a regular practice, 2 blocks can be a good investment.

What kind of Yoga are you offering?

I’m offering a wide range of Yoga from a strong power vinyasa to a slow beginner hatha and everything in between. I adapt my offerings to my students and their needs; each of my classes are unique and customized.
