My Journey

Originally from Malaysia, I have been moving around the globe with my wonderful French husband and 4 boys for the past 22 years. I started my traveling adventures in the United States, France, Dubai and recently back to France in the west suburbs of Paris. 

My entrepreneurship, international HR and psychology background brought me to create various companies related to people-support. Having a big family made me a more conscious to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. I practiced everything I could from stand-up paddle (SUP), surf, SUP-surf, scuba-dive, fitness classes and yoga.

My own yoga practice is inspired by exploring movements to create challenging flows and nourishing Yin. It is all about finding a balanced practice with intention and attention, on and off the mat. I enjoy inspiring the others to improve their long-term wellness and fitness goals.

Practice

Yoga is accessible to everyone regardless of flexibility, age, or fitness level. A regular yoga practice will help build strength, flexibility, and reduce stress. Thus you will benefit from an enhanced healthy and balanced lifestyle physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Slow Vinyasa

A slow paced, alignment-based class with breathing exercises to get comfortable on the mat. Synchronization of the breath with a creatively designed flow will leave your mind and body feeling centered, focused, calm and refreshed.

 

Beginners to all levels.

Yin Yoga

A still, deep and profound meditative practice. It involves mindful stretching on the floor with poses held from 2 to 10 minutes. Poses usually target the hips, legs, spine, and sometimes upper body. Good complement to improve any dynamic yoga practice or sports. Students will ultimately know themselves better through sensations, feelings and emotions.

 

Some benefits:

- Stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system aka "rest & relax" to reduce stress.

- Release muscle tension and discomfort.

- Good alternative for meditation to find focus and clarity.

- Maintain or improve flexibility and everyday movements.

- Bring your mind and body to deep relaxation, calmness and quietness.

- Improve the circulation of Chakra & Meridian flow of energetics and lymphatic system.

- An alternative if you have injuries that prevent you from practicing sports or dynamic yoga.

- Women may find an alternative temporary relief to premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or menopause.

Private

Book a private individual or small group class with a maximum of 12 people.

We can work on specific themes for you to progress faster in your practice: increase strength, weight loss, flexibility, reduce stress, etc.

Your practice will be more personalized and bonding within your own group: your circle of friends, anniversaries, birthdays, life events, etc.

Corporate

Bring yoga to your corporate environment and have happier, healthier employees to increase productivity and efficiency.

Great for team building events at your offices, in small groups at the studio, or bigger groups in the garden.

Small group class

  • Each class is kept small so that I can work closely with each of you and help you advance in your practice.

  • Classes are in English but instructions will be given in French if needed.

  • Book your spot in advance to guarantee a mat. 

  • If you cancel less than 24 hours before class, a class will be charged as there are limited spots. This allows other yogis on waiting list to book their spots.

Studio

Indoor Studio Reopening - June 9th, 2021.  

For yoga practice before June 9th, 2021 :

  • The home studio has a modern and relaxing atmosphere surrounded by a garden view for an enjoyable practice.

  • When weather permits, classes can be held on the terrace or in the garden as you practice to the sound of chirping birds. My family cat, Zinkie, may even join us....

  • Maximum yogis per class is 8, as in compliance to 50% indoor studio capacity.

  • Please confirm your attendance by paying for class or top up your package.

  • 24 hours cancellation notice applies.

  • Wash your hands upon arrival with provided sanitizing gel.

  • Non-contact frontal temperature will be taken upon arrival.

  • Your health and safety is a priority. Please respect common-sense sanitary rules.

  • A mask is required for indoor studio practice only. Please wear your lightest mask and it should cover your nose and jaws. If there is any shortness of breath, please pause until you can breathe before resuming. 

  • Bear in mind that your yogi peers beside you may have underlying health conditions (auto-immune disease, cancer patients or survivors, chronic respiratory disease, weakened immune system, etc.).

  • Zoom option is available but I need a 24 hour notice. Spots near my mat could be broadcasted on Zoom airing but will not be recorded.

Equipment
  • Please bring your own yoga mat and equipment (straps, blocks, towels, water bottle, blanket, etc.) 

  • The use of blocks, bolsters and yoga straps are for those who need more support and to make certain poses more accessible. 

  • Blankets are to keep you confortable when you cool down and relax in a well-deserved Savasana at the end of a session, especially in Yin Yoga. 

  • The studio's oak parquet flooring is cleaned and disinfected regularly. The practice studio is regularly aired before, during and after class, as a way to reduce the spread of air-borned diseases.

BEFORE CLASS

  • Wear form-fitting but comfortable outfits made from very stretchable and breathable materials. Slow vinyasa and vinyasa classes require breath coordination with lots of movements like twisting, bending, and possibly inversions.

  • If you wear leggings, do a mirror check to make sure they are not see through / not transparent. 
     

  • If you are coming to an early morning class, you may eat a light breakfast at least 1.5 hours before class. For other classes, 2 hours before.

  • Arrive 5 - 10 minutes before class starts to settle onto your mat. Perhaps take a few moments to calm your mind and meditate to bring awareness and presence to your whole self.

  • Arrange your belongings in the lockers, including your footwear and cell phone. On cold days, you may keep your socks until you get on the mat.

  • YIN Yoga students should wear comfortable and warm outfits as it is a "still practice": warm sweaters, leg warmers, extra thick socks, and scarves !

  • Be mindful with other yogis and avoid loud conversations in the practice studio. 

  • Do make a trip to the loo before class as a full bowel would make certain poses uncomfortable to do.

  • You could drink a little before class. Avoid drinking large amounts of water before and during practice as this might make you feel uncomfortable.

  • Remember that yoga is non-competitive and you should not feel pain during practice. Keep an open mind, listen to your body, and let the energy flow.  

  • Let me know if you have any questions at all !
