About the yoga lovers
They met in Alex’s native New York City but it wasn’t yoga that brought them together, it was destiny. In 2010, Tatiana was a contemporary dancer at Merce Cunningham’s school and Alex was working in the restaurant business. It was life as usual. Then living in New York became living in Paris, for the both of them. There, Tatiana’s yoga teaching path began to take off and Alex’s was born. Although based in Paris, Tatiana and Alex have trained with New York’s finest : Laughing Lotus NYC (both of them), Jivamukti Yoga (Alex), Sonic Yoga (Tatiana), and been under the guidance of such world renowned teachers as Dana Trixie Flynn, Sharon Gannon, David Life...
Our philosophy : F-F-C.
Inversions and arm balances play an important part in our classes. Learning to be upside down brings in a different perspective on the world. It allows us to view it, and our surroundings, under a different angle. We believe having a go at advanced asanas, overcoming the fear of falling and taking the risk to fly, brings about greatness and confidence. It paves the way for the rest to fall into place at its own time, whether on or outside the yoga mat. We can view it as physical training which we can use outside the mat to face any obstacle in our way. Therefore, dear yogis, be prepared to jump hop and fly !
There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask "What if I fall?" "Oh but my darling, What if you fly?" ― Erin Hanson
The word says it all. For freedom allows us to be who we really are, it allows us to expose our truth, including in our yoga practice. The experience of freedom in our yoga classes sees no limit. We are merely guides to help bring about your fullest potential but in the end it is YOU who must take the final step. Freedom to move and express yourself in a manner which is most natural to your body: that is essential to our teaching. We believe in it to the fullest so don’t be shy! Go ahead and express the movement, noise, tempo that you chose, maybe one step further and, sometimes but not always, one step back. When you have found your truth, be your truth.
One thing for certain: if you’re looking for creative classes, you’ve come to the right place. Ashtanga, Hatha, Iyengar are the parents of our young modern yoga and we never forget that, but we also try to add our creative touch to our classes. Flying and being free would be nothing without creativity. You can expect lots of creative movements in our classes. If you’re open to learning much more than just cobra and down-dog, our classes are made for you! Let your creative side run wild!
We believe our co-teaching experience is one of a kind and, as life partners, both on and off the mat, we try to transmit our two different yoga styles blended into one. Beware, a bumping playlist is to be expected and it will play an important part in your practice with us. Having two teachers present during class means that you can always have the attention of one of us and, if you’re lucky, of both! Two teachers = double the fun!!
