Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu 

“May all beings be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom for all.”

Corinne found to yoga around seven years ago by accident, literally. Since she has practiced yoga with different teachers exploring various styles worldwide: Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, Power, Bikram, Lu Jong, Laughing, Dru, Acro, Continuum and Kundalini. 

At some point, she also certified successfully as yoga and mindfulness teacher. As a teacher, Corinne aims at providing dynamic and restorative sessions to different levels, needs and the specific context. She likes to create practices that suit stressed and fitness-keen students alike. Roughly her sessions fall into three different teaching styles.

Let’s Play
Let’s play yoga is an Ashtanga influenced dynamic Hatha practice with some fitness elements followed by a long re-energising relaxation including restorative Yin-inspired asana and meditation. Themed focus on a specific pose like headstands, splits, crow, … – or all on the journey to get there: Alignment. Breathing. Concentration. Mindfulness. Repetition. Joy. Love. Peace.

Empowering & Mindful
A gentle yoga practice with the aim that you leave the session empowered to explore more poses, breathing techniques, mindfulness and meditation in your daily life. Therefore, you usually hold poses a bit longer so you can feel into them and align your body. The sessions are designed  in a way so that you flow through life relaxed, refreshed and reenergised – and with a smile.

YogArt
Using her background in community development, her experience living in different cultures and participating in dance and art sessions worldwide, Corinne combines in this workshop style sessions art, yoga, mindfulness and meditation. It can include dancing, creating your dream and bribing it on paper, find techniques that work for you to move more into the present moments, learn about your nervous system through exploring your senses, and becoming more aware of the art of communication that is the effect of our talks in daily life.

Corinne believes everyone is their own best teacher. Therefore, she understands her role as yoga and mindfulness teacher more as a facilitator for the dialogue between body and mind, a connector between the outer and inner world and a host offering a safe space to explore the richness of the very moment.

As student, Corinne loves to complement her self-practice with reading up theory from different books and participating in varied workshops and sessions, so that she can test the information against scientific evidence, her own experience and the general knowledge.

The last three years, Corinne travelled across Europe to share her yoga and mindfulness joy at yoga studios, community centres, refugees camps, fitness hubs, schools, retreats and events. She worked with and welcomes students from different backgrounds, at various levels, male and female, aged 4 to 90+ years…
