Celine has been practicing and studying yoga for more than 20 years, since falling in love with the sense of energy and wellbeing that yoga brings its students.
She began her studies in the Hatha yoga tradition in India at the Bihar School. Attracted by the more dynamic Ashtanga school, she studied at Mysore, where she also learned the Vinyasa style.
Her studies and encounters with teachers and yoga masters around the world have transformed her life, and today she dedicates her time to sharing her love and experience of yoga with her students and colleagues.
I bow my ego on the altar of my heart
Geraldine started dancing ballet in her childhood and a later stage she was fascinated with extreme sports such as snowboarding and surfing, which all resulted in various injuries. She started practicing Yoga 16 years ago and it was more about trying to create balance and ease in her body and mind after pushing herself to the limits. First Hatha Yoga, Bikram, then Ashtanga and now Vinyasa/Hatha with BelovedYoga and Svastha Yoga. Working in a Business environment for the last 16 years, Yoga has always been a great companion in her life to deal with her stress levels and active lifestyle. Eventually, she consciously decided to embark on the journey of yoga and completed RYT 200 hr certification with BelovedYoga teachers Maryam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander. Geraldine draws her inspiration for a Vinyasa Flow style from her experience in dance, while following the principles of ‘sthira sukham asanam’ (Yoga Sutra 2.46) – ‘creating the appropriate amount of effort to sustain ease in the body and mind’. Experiencing this balance ‘on the mat’ and then taking it ‘off the mat’ in our daily lives.
I have learned in the past years that happiness and contentment starts with working within myself first and embracing to be a student for my lifetime, while enjoying my journey . …. From doing to be a human being
Kes has trained as a Kundalini Yoga instructor in Brazil and in Paris by the 3HO organisation according to the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. She began her yoga teaching career in 2015, and found her own path and expression of this beautiful and powerful practice that can help develop a stable mind, a calm spirit and courage to be who we truly are.
Kundalini Yoga and the science of breath and chanting, inspired Kes on the benefits of mantra and sound vibration, as well as how these tools can help heal both our body and heart, release past traumas, physical pain and ignite deep relaxation that leads to deeper healing into ourselves and our life experiences. With a past in musical performance and production, she decided to dive into the world of Sound Healing Therapy, pursuing her training and diploma at the Sound Healing Academy in Dublin Ireland.
The mouvement, sound and healing possibilities led Kes to find and love stillness and the the shamanic aspects of taoism in the Practice of Yin Yoga. In 2017, Kes also completed her Yin Yoga training with Cecilie Roubaud according to the teachings of Biff Mithoefer.
Today, Kes currently teaches Kundalini Yoga, Yin Yoga and Sound Yoga in Nice and the Cote d’Azur, and she continues to develop her heart-based learning and teaching experiences to helps others achieve self-realisation and healing.
