Ashtanga Yoga Practice:
From Monday to Friday: the format of the practice always remains the same; one always begins practice on his own with Surya Namaskar, concludes with Padmasana and rest, and the various asanas gradually fill the space between these two poles It is through the daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga that we draw it into ourselves, understand it.
On Saturdays, group guided classes are taught, in which all the vinyasas are counted out loud and all students follow along together accordingly.
Christine was born in France in 1967. After completing her studies as Nurse in 1988, she started working as a nurse and soon started
travelling in India seeking “for the truth” through pilgrims around Rishikesh
A few years later with the financial support of sponsors she crossed The Himalays with horses from Kathmandu to Srinagar for 8 month, later on, she followed the Mekong river from his stream in Tibet ( Xining- Kham) though South east of Tibet, Yunnan, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodge.
In 1995 She created Orient explorers a tourism and travelling association and worked within until 2002. She came across Vipassana meditation and decided to settle in Auroville in 2002, an intentional spiritual community located in South India.
In 2004, after two years studying Hatha Yoga and Yengar, she discovered Ashtanga Yoga and started to study with Monica Marinoni until 2016 and since 2007 under the guidance of Sri Sharath Jois (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’grandson) at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.
In 2010 she opened “ Yoga et Bien-etre”, where she was teaching for 4 years, running Hatha Yoga class evenings and daily Mysore style program in the mornings. And the last year, she started to offer workshops on Yoga and meditation including Satsang about Yoga sutra, relaxation and pranayama.
For 13 years she studied the yoga through her own daily practise and teaching, the mind through regular and repetitive meditation retreats, she gave importance to the sadhana, she learned more about the body through her training and experience in Thai yoga massage and about the mind through her training and practise in NLP (sessions, workshop) .
With deep gratitude and respect she shares the primary series teachings as she has been taught by Monica Marinoni and Sri Sharath Jois.
