I never been to Lisbon and i am French/Portuguese… boohoo right?

It was a city i wanted to visit asap after arrived in Paris last November. Just because everybody told me that ‘Lisbon is the coolest European city at the moment’ >> check myself >> ‘Yes, that’s true’ and also because after 2 weeks in Paris, i needed to inhale salty air, have a sunbathe {even in December} and check new things happening in Europe.

All I can say is « I can fit easy there, people are lovely, everybody seem to know English and are OK about foreigners in their country. It is very traditional, the history is still strong but there is space for modernity and urbanization without killing the all little streets all patterned, with faience, and old culture ».

Top-hill Lisbon is amazing! It offers a panoramic ocean’s view and you can see the 25 de Abril bridge {looks like the one in SF}, Cristo Rei statue on the other side of the island, surrounded by the old city. At night, Bairo Alto never want to sleep, the all action takes part in a web of streets between graffiti-plastered walls.

I am also happy as i could found an Ashtanga yoga studio, with Mysore teachers YES ! Also there is few monasteries, Tibetan restaurant, organic farms, large international community of conscious people, and cheap Vino Verde.

I usually don’t post something about my touristic activity but i really like the pics i took there, so i am sharing 😉

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.
