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
My journey on the Yogic path starts in Sivananda Center in Paris . That fist touch with traditional Hatha Yoga teachings became later the foundation of my practice . During the years i practiced and stud the methods such as Iyangar , Vinyasa & Yin Yoga growing in integration and knowledge focusing on healing and meditative aspect in practice .
In 2013 i discovered Dharma Yoga , which i felt clearly as unification
of all forms of yoga ( Hatha , Raja, Krya , Laya , Kundalini , Tantra and Bhakti ) and deep call to join the teacher training with great Dharma Yogi TJ Jackson .
During the classes i invite the students to explore their potentiel encouraging the learning from experience , introspection and inner wisdom which lays deep in each Being .
The breath work is the core ,guide and constant focus which open the body and build the complete sequence of graceful and fluid practice. The dynamique Flow of postures will help to create the balance and build the strong and healthy body , calm the mind and develop the inner peace .
The Relaxation and meditation are essential for good integration of benefits . My aim is to help the students to develop gradually a complete, creative and nourishing practice .
May We all reach the goal of Self Realisation .
Sri Dharma Mittra
Eva Luna is from Santiago de Chile. She came to Europe to become a professional
dancer in the 80ties and worked for different companies until she created the Eva
Luna Company in 1998 with the purpose of developing contemporary flamenco. The
company performed at the famous ‘Festival d’Avignon’ and went on tour all around
In 2004 she discovered capoeira and fell deeply in love with this Brazilian dancedefense martial art. In 2012 she went for 3 month to Salvador de Bahia to work on a
dance project with children in one of the difficult areas called Fazenda Grande. In
Paris she assists her teacher Contra-mestre Reny.
Yoga crosses her path in 2004 when she first reads ‘Light on Yoga’ by BKS
IYENGAR. This book will always be with her wherever she travels. In 2012 coming
back from Brazil with some unknown virus she felt very weak and decided to take her
first Ashtanga yoga class in Paris with Lakshman Attygalage. It was love at first sight.
A path even bigger than dance. She new immediately that this was her path.
In 2013 she did her first teachers training with Sri BNS IYENGAR in Mysore and felt
deeply blessed to be taught one to one, Pranayama and Philosophy class with this
already 92-year-old gurudji.
Since then she travels every year to Mysore to study asanas with Ramesh Shetty
and Sanskrit, Philosophy and Chanting with Jayashree and Narasimha at Ananta
Yoga Research Institut in Mysore.
I first discovered Yoga over 10 years ago. I found practicing yoga brought me a sense of peace and
helped me grow stronger physically and mentally. It soon became a central part of my life. a two
month trip to India to deepen my study inspired me to transition from student to teacher. A year
later I returned to India and completed my teacher which included training in Hatha, Yin and
My passion for yoga and travelling has led me to study and teach in various other countries around
the world, India, South Amercia, England and here in Nice.
In my classes I aim to create a supportive environment where everyone feels welcome and at ease.
Balancing softness and strength, there is great focus on the breath, attention to alignment and the
therapeutic principles of asanas.
I strongly believe the practice of Yoga on and off your mat can offer a deeper understanding of the
body and mind. As a student and teacher I continue to learn and evolve everyday and I wish to share
this experience with others.
The architectural language was my first line of expression since I was trained as an architect.
I took my first Iyengar yoga class in Nice in 2001 while I was still working as a house designer. The expressiveness of the asanas, feeling their spatiality and the attention paid to the details immediately fascinated me.
The instructions in Iyengar yoga classes are given in a language familiar to architects. Indeed, in yoga as in architecture, we first rigorously organize the framework to structure the space. Then the further we go the more the instructions take a level of detail that tends towards infinity.
Thus, as in a building: the way of yoga leads from the outside to the inside.
I have since remained faithful to this yoga tradition to which I now devote myself entirely through my classes and my activity as an illustrator.
