I stepped into my first hatha yoga class in 2006 to ease neck pain and, since then, I have never stopped practising! Without any medicine, I managed to get rid of the pain and the tensions. More importantly, I could gradually connect better with my feelings and grasp the signals sent by my body. I have also learnt to accept, here and now, the state of my body, not only its strength and its flexibility, but also its limitations and its weaknesses. This experience is useless, if I do not enjoy it off the yoga mat as well, in my daily life. This is exactly the purpose of yoga: to accept what is and “be one with”, with myself, with the other, with any situation.
I am imbued with the beginner’s spirit: any pose already done hundreds of times is a new pose which brings about a new experience. And, if I am open to it, it makes me closer to who I really am. The necessary changes then come up in my personal and my professional life. That is why, in 2011, I felt the need to teach. So, while I keep on training, I share what I have been receiving. Teaching is now for me another way of learning. In 2018, life carried me away from my comfort zone in Brussels to Guadeloupe.
