"Yoga came in to my life in my solitude, in my struggle to be the best dancer: struggling with anger, obsession & feeling unworthy

.


My body was sore but I couldn t get enough of practicing,moving, doing...

.

I developed an aggressive relationship with my body & soul .I could never get enough, I was addicted to making myself perfect , I was binging on everything related to movement. Addicted to pushing, striving, perfectionism. The result?

I became numb

.

Yoga began as an another addiction as well, at first, another physical pursuit related to my body. To be a better dancer .

But then, little by little, it taught me a connection that I have never felt before: the relationship with my true self

.


Practice after practice I was softening in my body & in my mind opening to my vulnerabilities & accepting them as truths as well, I began to see the world as a place where I could relax, accept and just be...instead of a fighting, pushing, striving

.


Today I use my practice as a mirror for how I feel in life & how I'm approaching it, sometimes my body feels open & courageous, sometimes more low key, subtle. I accept wherever I am & surf through my daily life knowing where I am & being ok with it

.

That s why today I became a yoga teacher to teach the connection between life and your practice & how to tread that fine line between passion & addiction. I teach people to use yoga not to numb but to feel, empower & create

Yoga saved my life & keeps saving it every single day

.


My mission is to guide my students to finding their own saviour through their practice. To help them know: We are our own guru!

.

Thank you yoga for always being there for me, I feel blessed to have this tool in to my life 🙏
