Yoga Book – Awaking the Spine


The Stress-Free New Yoga that Works with the Body to Restore Health, Vitality and Energy

There is a way of doing yoga poses without the slightest effort. Movement is the song of the body.

The function of the spine is to elongate, and this elongation its elasticity and youth are regained.

There is no age limit, one can start yoga when 70 or 80 years old and no damage will occur if the movements originate from the spine. People feel elated and it gives them comfort and encouragement to discover that it is possible for them to control and modify their bodies. To talk about old age as an impediment is an excuse to be lazy.

To be simple, to appreciate what has been given to us and to take care of our body is an act of humility.

To be sensitive is to be alive.

When some difficulty arises we can always find a different movement, since the body is surprisingly able to adjust itself.

One has only to approach problems with patience, care and attention.

(yoga poses) They are simply refreshing the body… It is like tuning the instrument before playing it.

Our sports have become competitive and man spoils them through his insatiability for glory and success. Even arts have become a means of self-affirmation.

Understanding leads to independence and to freedom.

Tension is the result of will, effort and prejudice.

Why are we doing yoga?

Only an agreeable appointment for the body to look forward to… for fun… a body holiday

There is an unexpected delight in meeting earth and sky at the same moment!

Why not open the doors and let air, wind and sun to penetrate into our hearts?

Lives between Europe and exotic places, here is my story: I worked as a fashion Buyer for 10 years in Paris and get the chance to travel a lot during fashion weeks and experienced to live abroad. At 30 I changed my life and relocated in Hong Kong, where in parallel of my work I was studying Yoga and Ayurveda from short trips to Bali. Influenced by my teachers, peers, environment and my travels… I felt unstoppable and this year gap changed my life. First, I attended in Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Monastery my first Vipassana course – the 21 days of silent meditation in 2013. I did an Ashtanga 200-YTT in India in 2013, I stayed under the guidance of certified Ashtanga teachers of KP Jois as Prem Carlisi, Damien de Bastier, BNS Iyengar till now. Completed an Ayurvedic course with Deepak Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.P in his foundation of Ayurveda and also with Dr Ramesh Kumar from the University of Ayurveda in Mysore – India. Completed a Dietary Course called ‘Food is your best medecine’ with the Dr. Veronica Waks M.D., N.D. which is about planning a food plan who works the best with different type of people. More recently in 2018, she stayed under the guidance of well known Ayurvedic author Janesh Vaidya in his center in Kerala to be trained as a Yoga Therapist and integrating Yoga-Ayurvedic program that she is able to teach now. « My experiences make me understand that the key component for health and wellness is traveling into a healing environment, as it is an extraordinary step into the process of self-discovering and how to transform our life with new habits and then sustain this lifestyle for our own health ».  That’s why I choose to use my yoga retreats to guide others for self-discovery and adopting a spiritual practice into their life “Sadhana” and all tools that has benefited me.
