I offer a soft and gentle awakening of body, mind and soul, particularly for beginners, for anyone new to yoga, as well as for those who have been practicing other styles of yoga, but feel the need for something more.
I focus on creating experience, taking the students on a journey inside, through music and mantra, soft candlelight and essential oils to touch and calm the senses, preparing the body and mind to receive.
My classes are meditative; an invitation to feel; a beautiful blend of asana, pranayam, mantra, meditation and guided relaxation.
I offer group classes, one on one private lessons, as well as regular healing retreats in Sri Lanka and Corsica.

Qualifications and Attainments
Watsu is a profoundly relaxing aquatic movement therapy based on Zen-Shiatsu, performed in warm water where the lightness of the body allows the practitioner to float recipients, free spinal vertebrae, rotate joint articulations and elongate muscles in ways not possible on land.
A unique way from which Watsu differs from many forms of bodywork, is in its awareness of the profoundly nourishing effect of being held closely. More acceptable in a water environment, such holding can begin to heal deep wounds of separation. It connects us to something beyond the physical, and allows for a profound and holistic bodywork experience that is like no other.
Physiotherapists, massage therapists and other bodywork practitioners worldwide use it for:
Reduced stress and anxiety
decreased pain and fatigue
increased range of motion
improved body awareness
normalising muscle tone
decreased muscle guarding and tension
released emotional stress
better breathing and sleep patterns
increased lymphatic circulation
release of toxins
facilitated recovery for athletes, increasing sports performance
