Intimately convinced that the human being is first and foremost a spiritual being, I am very interested early in the humanist and orientalist philosophies that lead me naturally to the practice of Ashtanga Yoga and then Kundalini Yoga.
Today, I teach these two forms of yoga that enrich each day's inner life.
I define myself first of all as a sadhaka (practitioner) and a researcher and especially as a teacher who believes that discipline is the essence of any spiritual approach.
So for the last 12 years, every day before sunrise, I have been subjected to an unchanging ritual, sadhana, which leads me to practice the traditions that I teach to my students.
My progressive awareness of the multi-dimensions of the human being (body / mind / spirit) naturally led me to explore all facets of Yoga practice (Yamas, Niyamas, Asanas, Pranayama, Mudras, Dharana , Dhyana) its philosophical and mystical foundations (Yoga sutras, Banis, Tantras) and energy intelligences (Chakras, Prana, Maruths).
After working for several years in the business world, I founded 8 years ago which is a training school in Traditional Yoga: it organizes yoga retreats on five continents and form of future teachers in traditional yoga.
To enrich my initiation course and my formation, I have never ceased to inspire me from different sources (Tantra, Vedas, Banis, Ayurveda, Yoga sutras) and different teachers (Petri Raisanen, John Scott, Eddie Stern, Sharath Jois, Karta Singh). Today I am the teachings of an Indian spiritual Master who is in the path of Raja Yoga which is a real way of synthesis.
Today I introduce to my student's yoga in its holistic and spiritual dimension to try to better understand the following systems: Asanas, Prana, Chakras, Mantras, Devas etc that demonstrate the complexity and beauty of life.
Yoga for me
Access to our true identity is a long process of spiritual maturation that can take time. Yoga one day reveals us to our true nature and our being in all its components begins to transform gradually. The "sleeper" wakes up.
When this day arrives our certainties waver.
We realize that only a deconstruction of our illusions and attachments can free us to bring forth a Reality now in direct contact with the Divine who breathes within us.
Yoga is now your companion, your dearest friend who helps you bring out your consciousness: we realize that we are on this earth to awaken, to share, to help, to heal and to transmit in humility and patience the teachings of the Masters of wisdom.
Yoga for me is a school of patience, courage, and humility.
My teaching is based on the different techniques of Ashtanga Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, and Ancient Yogic Practices and accompanies each student to forge links between the physical, mental and spiritual.
I put a special emphasis on Mantras and Conscious Breath to get students to realize their true nature.
I support and encourage each of my students on their path through attentive listening and great kindness.
Professor of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Kundalini Yoga
Professeur de Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga et Kundalini Yoga
Intimement convaincu que l’être humain est avant tout un être spirituel, je m’intéresse très tôt aux philosophies humanistes et orientalistes qui me conduisent tout naturellement vers la pratique du Ashtanga Yoga puis du Kundalini Yoga .
J’enseigne aujourd’hui ces deux formes de yoga qui enrichissent chaque jour sa vie intérieure.
Je me définis avant tout comme un sadhaka (pratiquant) et un chercheur et à fortiori comme un enseignant estimant que la discipline est l’essence de toute démarche spirituelle.
Ainsi depuis 12 ans, chaque jour avant le lever du soleil, je m’astreint à un rituel immuable, la sadhana , qui me conduit à pratiquer les traditions que j’enseigne ensuite à mes élèves.
Ma prise de conscience progressive de la pluri-dimension de l’Etre humain (corps/mental/esprit), m’a conduit naturellement à explorer toutes les facettes de la pratique du Yoga (Yamas, Niyamas, Asanas, Pranayama, Mudras, Dharana, Dhyana) ses fondements philosophiques et mystiques (Yoga sutras, Banis, Tantras) et les intelligences énergétiques (Chakras, Prana, Maruths).
Après avoir travaillé plusieurs années dans le monde de l’entreprise, j’ai fondé il y a 8 ans www.yoga-escape.com qui est une école de formation au Yoga Traditionnel : elle organise des retraites de yoga sur les cinq continents et forme de futurs enseignants au yoga traditionnel .
Pour enrichir mon parcours initiatique et ma formation, je n’ai jamais cessé de m’inspirer auprès de différentes sources (Tantra, Vedas, Banis, Ayurveda, Yoga sutras) et différents enseignants ( Petri Raisanen, , John Scott, Eddie Stern, Sharath Jois, Karta Singh ) . Aujourd’hui je suis les enseignements d’un Maitre spirituel Indien qui se situe dans la voie du Raja Yoga qui est un véritable chemin de synthèse.
Aujourd’hui je fais découvrir à mes élèves le yoga dans sa dimension holistique et spirituelle pour essayer de mieux leur faire comprendre les systèmes suivants : Asanas, Prana, Chakras, Mantras, Devas etc qui démontrent la complexité et la beauté de la vie.
Le Yoga pour moi
L'accès à notre réelle identité est un long processus de maturation spirituel qui peut prendre du temps. Le Yoga un jour nous révèle à notre véritable nature et notre être dans toutes ses composantes, commence à se transformer progressivement . Le « dormeur « se réveille.
Quand ce jour arrive nos certitudes vacillent.
Nous réalisons que seule une déconstruction de nos illusions et attachements peut nous libérer pour faire émerger une Réalité désormais en prise direct avec le Divin qui respire en nous.
Le Yoga devient désormais votre compagnon, votre ami le plus cher qui vous aide à faire émerger votre conscience : nous réalisons que nous sommes sur cette terre pour nous éveiller, pour partager, pour aider, pour guérir et transmettre dans l'humilité et la patience les enseignements des Maitres de sagesse...
Le Yoga pour moi est une école de la patience, du courage et de l'humilité.
Mon enseignement repose sur les différentes techniques du Ashtanga yoga , Kundalini Yoga et Anciennes Pratiques Yogiques et accompagne chaque élève pour tisser des liens entre le physique, mental et spirituel.
Je mets un accent tout particulier sur les Mantras et la Respiration Consciente pour amener les étudiants à réaliser leur véritable nature.
Je soutiens et j’ encourage chacun de mes élèves sur leur chemin par une écoute attentive et une grande bienveillance.
