À Propos / About

● The practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is often misunderstood as :


- Repeated mechanical movements. Believing that by attending class regularly and simply listening to the instructor's counting, every aspect of our being will naturally improve. - Perfect posture is the primary concern. Countless techniques are crammed into the mind with the aim of achieving the same so-called perfect posture seen somewhere. - Practice, practice, practice and everything will come. Without a clear understanding of how the breath connects mind and body, practising without direction, what will it really achieve?  


The aim of asana practice is to maintain or restore health to body and mind.  Much of the confusion in yoga stems from considering the form of an asana as the goal, as an end in itself.  


Instead, we must seek to develop correctness and intelligence through practice, in order to experience the happiness of the moment. In other words, the goal should not be the asana itself, but the qualities involved in being able to assume that bodily position. This is a crucial distinction, as it is possible to adopt certain asanas without developing such qualities. To focus on the ideal form of an asana without paying sufficient attention to the effect of practice on the structural qualities of the body is to lose sight of the real purpose of the asana. 

When we understand how to set up the breath and movement involved in an asana with the qualities in their correctness, we have understood the asana that will have all the benefits of unity.  


This 3-hour organic practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga includes

  1. Mini-workshop

  2. Pranayama (breathing exercises)

  3. Guided practice of 1st and 2nd sequences combined

  4. Questions and answers

Enabling an opening to more awakening, equanimity, unity.  


With regular practice, there will be progress on certain aspects, but will there be benefits on all aspects (physical, physiological, spiritual, therapeutic). Can we ensure that these aspects don't take precedence over each other, so as to develop a healthy practice? And avoid an imbalance that could occur in the short, medium or long term.  


This will depend on the factors below :

  1. Abilities

  2. State of the moment

  3. Environment

  4. Knowledge

  5. Qualities ​

​In fact, it all depends on :

On the practitioner's ability, and state of the moment in a particular environment, to put in place the knowledge of qualities in the rightness.

It sounds rather heavy when you put it like that, but how do you put all these things in place so that they become light, without tension, calm and relaxed, in order to develop intelligence, and allow an opening onto more awakening, equanimity and unity?

Their passion for teaching drives them to always seek the best path, adapted to each individual, to achieve correctness. A benevolent and precise teaching, for a healthy practice. To achieve unity, the state of yoga. What we all aspire to, a serene state and a happy life.
