Tatiana Avila Bouru
Registered Vinyasa Yoga teacher & Laughing Lotus Yoga teacher
Her understanding of working with the physical body began at an early age. At the age of 7 years old, she was already competing all over France during rhythmic gymnastics competitions. A dance career then opened up. It began in France, specializing in ballet, and brought her to New York City.
She spent 2 years at the world-renowned Merce Cunningham dance school. The hectic and demanding world of dance pushed Tatiana to turn to vinyasa yoga classes, as a way to relieve the pressure.
After putting herself under intense daily practices with some of NYC best known teachers, she participated, in 2012, to the 200 RYT training at Sonic Yoga, in Hell’s Kitchen NYC. That same year, she moved to Paris where her teaching path began. She still continued training at one of NYC best yoga centres, Laughing Lotus Yoga centre. It truly moulded the style of teaching Tatiana has been passionate about ever since.
A Lotus class can be defined as: an uplifting, innovative and soulful journey. A practice steeped in the timeless traditions of yoga, and fused with music and divine inspiration.

MUSIC ON MY IPOD
I really appreciated the trial class, it was very dynamic but the music, kindness and smile of Tatiana made the postures easier. It was a great experience!
Tatiana is a yoga teacher in the purest tradition. She is full of kindness, she pushes you to always do better and brings you confidence. A big moment each time renewed by Tatiana.
I quickly became addicted to Tatiana’s classes. After my first class, I was so relaxed… The practice is complete: it is challenging, spiritual, full of energy and gentleness, and led by Tatiana’s smile. The basis is similar from one class to another but Tatiana always adds new variations and challenges. I cannot wait for my next class!
At the beginning of the class, Tatiana asked us if we had any postures we specifically wanted to work on, a good idea I think… It was my second class with her and I found the other students dedicated and hardworking. I really appreciated the rhythm of the class, as well as the sequence we worked on, the music, the humour and general good mood. When it came to the final relaxation, it was magical, I was completely relaxed.
A really good quality vinyasa class with a very warm atmosphere. These classes are a great warm up when you’re a dancer and you will be relaxed at the end. Tatiana pays great attention to all her students. Come try her class!
Tatiana’s classes are very pleasant and accessible to all. A great moment of effort and relaxation. Tatiana is always there with us, with her good mood and her spirit of sharing and well-being. A very good class with a playlist chosen with care. I can only recommend this class.
