Ashtanga Yoga – Mysore Style

My classes are For students interested to learn the science of Yoga and understand the all system as teached by krishnamacharya and by Sharath Jois from Patthabis Jois institute. My purpose as my teachers is not to fulfill the ego or to be an activity to distract, my purpose is to teach as the tradition wanted and to help each student to understand the discipline and rules, and their benefits. 

Ashtanga yoga include 8 limbs: and every student while practicing the Asanas must be aware about Yama and Nyama. Our teaching is to help each student through the study and  understanding of the system to go over their fear, to increase their equanimity to be able to purify their body for the ultimate goal which is to be a tool for the Divine. (ultimate goal!)

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.
