Vinyasa Flow Yoga 🇫🇷🇬🇧 Bilingual


This class is taught by:

Helen Watkins

Helen is a 200h Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. She practiced yoga 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. Her Vinyasa classes are a mix of mindful movements and a playful approach to asanas. Indeed, she doesn’t think the practice should always be serious, and will probably be wearing a huge smile on her face 99% of the practice.

 

Her Yin classes are deeply meditative, focus on mindfulness and always end with a very long feel-good savasana!

 

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.

This flowing, energizing transition of core postures will help you build strength, flexibility, balance, and focus.
 

This class will link the traditional yoga asanas / postures gracefully together while giving focus to active meditation. This could be considered a more 'active' class than our Hatha offerings. It is dynamic yet soft in nature, and relaxation is often reserved to the end of the session.

 
This class is taught in both English 🇬🇧 and French 🇫🇷.
