Born in France, Hélène discovered the beautiful practice of yoga in 2002 while working as a journalist and photographer in Tokyo. Hélène used yoga to rehabilitate and neutralize her serious back problems, and completed her initial 200-hr teacher training in 2007.
After moving to New York in 2009, Hélène completed the “Anatomy Studies for Yoga Teachers” program with Jason Ray Brown, and studied anatomy and breath-centered yoga with Leslie Kaminoff. Hélène believes that yoga develops strength, flexibility, and focus, as well as physical and spiritual balance. Her style is inspired by ashtanga, vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga, as well as all the wonderful teachers she has practiced and studied with.
Hélène is certified as an E-RYT 500 by Yoga Alliance and has been teaching yoga for 12 years. Her classes are vigorous and challenging, she takes great care to adapt every student’s physical capabilities, focusing on breath and alignment, and using clear, sensitive guidance.
