"Words cannot convey the value of Yoga, it has to be experienced" BKS Iyengar"Words cannot convey the value of Yoga, it has to be experienced"

We have been coming to India for over 20 years. We met and fell in love in Goa in 1997. We decided to travel across India together and find a Yoga teacher to guide us. After a year of visiting and practicing with numerous teachers, we found Iyengar Yoga with Sharat Arora. We became hooked on that method which offered a very clear and pragmatic approach, so we dedicated the next 3 ½ years to intensive and extensive training. We went on to become assistant teachers at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre.

In 2002 we returned to France where we studied with June and Christian Pisano at the Iyengar Institute in Nice.

After 2 years we went back to India and started our own Yoga school in Goa and Manali. We stayed in India from 2004 to 2008 running back to back 5-day courses and seasonal long intensive courses.

Since 2008 we have been based in the South of France where we run the Umahesh Yoga school. Every year we take time to return to the Source (India!) where we visit teachers and also teach a 6-week immersion course.
