Daphné Vanderschelden

Daphne started practicing yoga 8 years ago, when her father advised her to try it as a way to deal with stress. He promised it could help her to get a more peaceful life, and he was right: she has never stopped since her first class.

She experimented many types of yoga as Bikram, Hatha, Ashtanga, Yin, Retroactive and Vinyasa, and she continues building her personal practice today.

As soon as she got an opportunity to take a gap year, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher
Training with the Radiantly Alive Yoga studio in Bali. She first decided to gain teacher certification to deepen her knowledge in
something that had helped her both mentally and physically for years. Soon after starting, though, she realised how much she loved sharing her passion with people. That's how she decided to stay in Bali for few months after her training and start something completly new ; teaching yoga.

And now, back in Paris, she couldn't stop doing what she started and what she really loves. Her main focus in teaching is to help people to realise that they can live in a virtous circle by listening to themselves, by
taking care of their mind and body instead of chasing after "performance" on the mat and in life.

Her Dynamic Vinyasa class will make you sweat by breathing through each pose of the flow. Get ready to release what doesn’t serve you anymore, and nourish your mind and body with what makes you feel good.


Daphné Vanderschelden instructs the following:
  • Dynamic Vinyasa Flow Yoga
  • This high-intensity class builds heat, detoxes the body, explores and expands personal limits, and lets the body sweat!
     
     
    Structured around traditional Vinyasa technique, this class will give special attention to the fluid transition between each posture, allowing for a vibrant and intimate connection to the self. Classes may be structured around full-body engagement, or around a special theme such as backbends, hips & twists, or inversions & arm balances.
     
     
    This class is held in English, but most of our teachers do speak some French, so don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

  • Vinyasa Flow Yoga
  • 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.
