This class is taught by:

Céline Vetter

French speaking
Céline spent the last 10 years abroad: in the USA, Swizerland and the UK. During the past 4 years she was enjoying life whilst teaching fitness classes in London including Zumba, Dance and Body&Mind classes. With some international experience in her pocket, she is now back in her home country of France, where she continues teaching fitness classes with a passion!

Céline is passionate about her job and her main interests are yoga and Dance. She likes to try new choreographies, classes and she loves sharing ideas about classes, postures and fitness practice.

She passed her sports diploma in Switzerland in 2011 where she became a Group Certified Instructor , reaching the required international professional standards for employment in the fitness industry. Céline soon after certified as a Zumba teacher and she also became a BodyBalance certified instructor. BodyBalance is a body & mind class that increases strentgh and flexibility, mixing tai- chi, yoga and pilates. This program combats anxiety and stress. It also improves cardio-respiratory function, promotes weight loss, and improves balance. It is especially recommended to practice during pregnancy.

Her teaching style varies depending on the type of class, but she always teaches from the heart. Students can expect to get a warm, efficient and professional workout in Céline's classes. She likes to connect with people in class, being herself, making jokes, and feeling the music (if any) to nail the workout.

Yun Ng

Yun loves all kinds of movement. She dedicates most of her time to practicing and teaching yoga and meditation, then the rest to pilates, barre method and many other types of expressive, intelligent movement. Yun also enjoys cooking up new salad recipes, blending smoothies and taking very long walks in nature.

She loves the practice of yoga simply because you can start wherever you are. It does not matter what injuries one has, how much one can bring hands to touch the toes or how many handstands one can do in a minute. As long as you want to, you can, but with adequate lessons and attention. With 6 years of yoga teaching and 11 years of mat practice, she is extremely humbled to guide yogis in Paris through the knowledge she has received from her teachers over the years.

Her influence includes teachings from the Anusara method, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Jivamukti and AcroYoga.

Yun does not currently teach any regular classes with us. 
CLASS DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this Vinyasa/Yin class is to use the dynamic flow of traditional yoga asanas/postures to warm up the body and release the tension of the week for the first 30 minutes of the class. The second half of the practice will be Yin based yoga, enabling the body and mind to wind down, in preparation for the weekend.

In Yin Yoga, the postures are floor-based and are held for longer periods of time (generally 3 to 8 minutes). This allows the body to relax into the postures, developing flexibility and serenity.
This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.

Le but de ce cours est d'utiliser le mouvement dynamique, des postures traditionnelles pour échauffer le corps, relâcher la tension et transpirer pendant les 30 premières minutes. La deuxième moitié du cours est consacré au Yin Yoga où on tient les postures pour entre 3 et 8 minutes (les postures se font assis ou allongé). Le temps passé dans les postures permet au corps de se relâcher de plus en plus, de retrouver plus de souplesse et de sérénité.
Le cours est en anglais, n'hésitez pas à demander de l'aide pour mieux comprendre. Il est ouvert à tous, il faut apporter votre tapis de yoga ou une serviette, une bouteille d'eau et un pull pour la partie Yin comme le corps se refroidi vite.
