About Helen

Helen is a 200h Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and she currently teaches full time, group classes, private classes and corporate classes in Paris.

She practiced Yoga for many years in Paris and London before going to Indonesia to undertake her teacher training.

Helen sees yoga as an empowering and self reflective practice. She teaches slow but deep and strong informative flows as well as deeply relaxing Yin and Meditation classes. She leaves time for her students to explore the poses and always works equally strength and flexibility. For her, Yoga is a way to find your authenticity and to learn to know your body in movement as well as in stillness and she encourages her students to find their own uniqueness.

She believes in following your passions in life, and other than a Yoga teacher she is a trained actress, a performance maker and a writer.

Her Vinyasa classes are a mix of mindful movements, moving meditation and a playful approach to asanas. Her Yin classes are deeply meditative and focus on mindfulness.

Meditation and Pranayama

Prana in Yoga is the flow of energy, the flow of life.

Through my classes you will learn to reconnect with your breath while shifting into your parasympathetic nervous system and giving your body and mind instant rest.

Pranayama or Breathing techniques are amazing if you feel stressed, anxious or suffer from overthinking. They help you with letting go, feeling empowered and entering a calmer state.

They are an amazing way to connect inwards, concentrate our mind in the present moment and enter slowly a state of meditation. 

We will experience different techniques of concentration and meditation to guide my students towards what is right for them. Chakra meditation, New Moon and Full Moon meditation, eye gazing meditation, Mantra meditation...

Vinyasa flow

Vinyasa is the art of moving your body with your breath.

I can teach from beginner classes to advance classes. I teach playful informative flows with a focus on mindful movement.

I help my students bringing their focus on how the poses feel to increase their inner awareness and feel empowered by their own practice.

Each class as for objective to guide my students towards a pose which can be a backbend, a twist, a hip opener... Therefore if you practice with me regularly you will learn to strengthen and open your body in many different ways.

Yin Yoga

Yin is a still meditative practice which increases flexibility, release tension hold in the body, and pushes the boundaries of your mind.

I teach open classes. In Yin Yoga you are invited to remain in a pose for several minutes, usually between 2 to 6min.

This practice teaches you to let go and settle into the discomfort. In a world where we never switch off, the practice of Yin is a challenge but also a gift to your body.

Guided relaxation

Inspired by the practice of Yoga Nidra, my guided relaxation will help you disconnect and go deep into your parasympathetic nervous system.

You will fall into an in between state - not awake and not asleep, connecting deeply with your subconscious mind.

You will come out feeling lighter, calmer and probably also ready to sleep!

There is freedom waiting for you,
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “what if I fall?”
oh but my darling,
what if you fly?”
