About us


In Sanskrit “svadharma” means to follow one’s path or do one’s duty. In doing so, we are in harmony with ourselves.

Yoga, coupled with Ayurveda the science of life, provides an individual with the tools to get happiness here and now.

The goal of Svadharma Ayur Yoga is to help individuals to progress on their own unique path in life which ultimately leads to deep personal satisfaction.

Founder

A native of the United States, I began yoga as a pastime.

During a trip to India, a "by chance" meeting with a yoga teacher transformed my life for ever. Without knowing it, it was the beginning of a great journey in the world of  yoga.

I was trained in classical Hatha yoga (TTC and ATTC) by the Center International Sivananda de Yoga Vedanta in South India. I regularly intervene in their international programs including teacher trainings - TTC and ATTCs. This proximity with international yoga and yoga philosophy teachers, medical doctors, nutritionists, physiotherapists and specialists in alignment and posture provides me with a unique and holistic approach to teaching.

I also studied with ayurvedic doctors to learn how to apply the principles of ayurvdeda to vegetarian cooking.

I pursued my training with Micheline FLAK by studying Yoga Nidra according to rules defined by Swami Satyananda.

I teach dynamic and playful yoga classes for all levels and also propose workshops for beginners(yoga, meditation) as well as more advanced workshops to deepen your practice.

For me, yoga is not just about physical postures, it is a way of life.​

J'ai découvert le yoga avec l'école Sivananda voici plusieurs années. La rencontre avec cette pratique a été fondatrice pour moi, et j'ai décidé d'approfondir mes connaissances en explorant différents courants. Le hatha yoga, qui mèle postures, relaxation profonde et respiration, m'a conquise; je suis donc partie suivre une formation de douze semaines auprès d'Ajit Sarkar, à Pondichéry. Ajit a grandi à l'ashram de Sri Aurobindo, puis a travaillé en France pendant plus de 30 ans au sein de l'INSEP. Sa philosophie d'enseignement, selon laquelle chacun est différent et où respect et bienveillance sont la clé de voûte, m'a profondément marquée, et c'est cet état d'esprit qui anime aujourd'hui les cours que je dispense.
