Yoga and meditation for people serving in the world
For more than 25 years, I have been actively engaged in social justice work. Yoga and meditation have been foundational practices that have allowed me to serve in the world, helping me to build and maintain the strength, clarity and sense of purpose required to get through even the most difficult times. As we now collectively navigate the uncertainties and fears brought to us by a global pandemic, I am eager to share what I have learnt with you.
‘Bodhisattva Yoga’ is inspired by the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, whereby a Bodhisattva serves the world to reduce suffering and to contribute to collective liberation. I want to support you as you serve on the front lines of everyday life.
Through live yoga classes, meditation recordings, blog entries on the transformation of violence, group calls, and one-on-one accompaniment, I offer tools to reinforce your strength and to recharge your energies as you work to make this world a better place.
Vinyasa yoga and Mindfulness meditation
The practice of Vinyasa yoga harnesses breath and physical strength through fluidly sequenced postures. With a focus on alignment and balance, this rigorous discipline reinforces stability and stamina, flexibility and resilience.
Mindfulness meditation is a contemplative practice that allows us to increase our awareness of the present moment and to cultivate our capacity to experience the present moment.
Who I am
I am a global citizen, recovering humanitarian and applied social researcher. I have survived the frontlines of multiple conflicts as an international child protection worker, pushed through a doctoral thesis to understand how people cope with violence, and now study and write about how inequality and structural violence can be transformed through individual, everyday actions.
I am also a yoga teacher, trained by the world’s best teachers and scholars, including in Varanasi, Union Square, Kreutzberg, and Camden. I qualified as a Vinyasa yoga teacher in 2007 with Cyndi Lee at the prestigious OM Yoga Centre in New York and have continued studies and training ever since. I have taught yoga across the world, from New York, to Bukavu, to London, to Antananarivo, to Geneva, to Annecy. Now I am happy to join you online.
