After 12 incredible years living and teaching in Bangkok Thailand I decided it was time for a new adventure. For some unknown reason France was calling, and I had to answer. I said farewell ‘sawasdee ka’ to the chaotic yet vibrant city of Bangkok, left behind tropical blue skies, swaying palm trees on idyllic islands, glittering temples with smiling Buddhas, spicy coconut curries … to say Bonjour to France.
I randomly picked Lyon from a map of France and literally just turned up. I arrived in June 2017 with no family, no friends, no French, no place to live, no job … just my dream to teach yoga here. I soon fell in amour with charming Lyon and my whole new different way of life.
In the present I’m definitely fulfilling my dream. I’m a passionate teacher of yoga and love guiding my students so they too benefit and receive happiness from the practice. I’m delighted that I’m able to offer classes from my cosy studio right in the centre of Lyon’s most loved park, Parc de la Tête D’Or. I literally cycle past giraffes to arrive at my studio (there’s a zoo in the park!)
