Gillian Grant

Gillian is an American living in Paris for over a decade. Yoga became a major part of her life after giving birth to her son 10 years ago. Her practice has helped to maintain balance in her personal and professional life. Teaching for Gillian is a way to help others also find balance in the often hectic urban environment.

Also, as a student of Ayurvedic medicine, Gillian finds much joy in working with homeopathy as an alternative way of healing that is complementary to modern medicine. As a Reiki master, she has practiced the healing arts through touch and the redirection of energy in the body.

Gillian completed her Yoga training (200 RYT) at the Sivananda Ashram in Orleans, France. The Sivananda style is very traditional Hatha with a major focus on meditation and spirituality. Hatha is a slow and steady practice that helps build a strong body and mind while focusing on the breath and energy centers of the body.   Gillian completed her Kundalini Yoga training with 3HO, the association formed by the Guru Yogi Bhajan to bring the practice of Kundalini to the West. Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul.

The purpose of a Vinyasa class is to link the traditional yoga asanas / postures together into a harmonious flow of transitioning positions while giving focus to active meditation. This could be considered a more 'active' class than our Hatha offerings. It is dynamic yet soft in nature, and relaxation is often reserved to the end of the session. The sequence of postures will vary from class to class, building on the fluid transitions of core asanas to develop strength, flexibility, balance and focus.
This class is taught in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

Le but d'un cours de Vinyasa est de relier les asanas traditionnels/postures ensemble dans un flux harmonieux, tout en donnant l'accent à la méditation active. Cela pourrait être considéré comme un cours plus «actif» que nos cours de Hatha. Il est dynamique mais doux en nature, et la détente est souvent réservé à la fin de la session. La séquence de postures varie d'un cours à l’autre travaillant sur les transitions fluides d'asanas de base pour développer de la force, de la souplesse, de l'équilibre et de la concentration. Le cours est ouvert à tous et il est en Anglais, n'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide à mieux comprendre. Apportez votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette.
