The dawn of a new understanding

Even if the sky of Paris is different from Bali, when we decide that the cage is open and tons of opportunities are just out – waiting for us – that feeling of freedom is still in my lungs.

Here is few co-working spaces found on my way today


The Lawomatic, Paris 10. Shared units, little cafe, creative space at Canal St. Martin. What seems to be a small showroom for Fashion at the back is also a great idea to present collection in an healthy environment. It seems not possible to access only per day as they rent more monthly for offices but the idea is here.


La colonie, Paris 10. Large space with coffee table in the middle and large leather couch to spend the day on your laptop. There is 2 floor, one for french talks and probably DJ set, and the top will be turn in an Art Gallery. There is no vibes of digital nomads here, but for culture events and possible workshops is available. It’s new, only opened since one month by Kader Attia – Marcel Duchamp price.


L’Archipel, Paris 8. Innovative collective space, inside a church. Access is reserved for social projects and for action people. It is a space to connect and be involved with their initiatives, so there is a sense of community commitment. They have sponsors who help unemployed persons to be trained into web developer, for free, in order to help them getting back into professional activities. Another initiative is about free training for cooking class, and creating recipes from local fresh seasonal products, then people can start their own truck food or online course. They have a ‘trocshop’ which means, you exchange your products – but don’t buy – for books, clothes, interior items.

Archipel partners : Baluchon / Les camionneuses / Mouves / Simplon / co-dev / Petit Bain

So yes, Paris did not changed much, the architecture is the same, the conversation in the cafes did not change, politics and terrorism in the heart of the attention. But behind the scene, a new era is waiting, they are weaving for good. More good news will be the magic in the city of Love.

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.
