Outdoor Gentle Yoga - Tuileries, GRANDE LAWN


This class is taught by:

Katie Ribas

French speaking
Katie is from Denver, CO and was brought appropriately to Paris, the city of love, in 2013 by following her heart and marrying a Frenchman.
Off the yoga mat, she is a member of a wall-climbing club, which has enabled her to pursue outdoor rock climbing and bouldering. She also holds a master’s degree in opera performance, and still performs from time to time in addition to teaching regular music foundation classes to children.

She has been a certified yoga teacher since 2012 when she completed a 200-hour program with Core Power Yoga, a Yoga Alliance registered studio. She later finished training programs with Next Generation Yoga for Kids, to share her practice with younger yoginis, and The Institut de Gasquet for pre and post-natal yoga.

During her yoga classes, one can expect to have a light hearted and playful session while maintaining the integrity of yogic tradition. She purposefully centers each class around a theme, encouraging everyone, including herself, to take the practice deeper than the physical level and to take what they have gained during the session out the door with them.
