Adeline Boissard

lead instructor (français)

ERYT 500 Yoga Alliance

Je m´appelle Adeline, j´ai 34 ans, je suis Franco-Espagnole et professeure de yoga depuis 4 ans.

Je suis passionnée par l'univers du yoga depuis des années, positive, dynamique et amoureuse de voyage. J´aime découvrir de nouvelles cultures, personnes et partager ma passion pour le yoga. Je pratique depuis une dizaine d'années, en ayant commencé à travers l´ashtanga vinyasa. Petit à petit, cette pratique est devenue mon moment à moi, ma passion et puis mon travail. 

J´ai pratiqué et appris différents styles comme l´ashtanga, le hatha, le vinyasa, le yin, le jivamukti, l'acroyoga ect... Jusqu`à ce que je décide de me former et de faire ma première formation de professeur de yoga 200 heures à Barcelone en 2016. 

J´ai directement commencé à donner des cours dans des studios de yoga, des centres de vacances et camps de surfs dans différents pays et j´ai aussi organisé mes propres classes. J´aime la richesse de ce travail pour me permettre de m'adapter à chacun et faire découvrir les bienfaits du yoga pour tous.


Je me suis aussi formée à la méditation en pleine conscience MBSR (Mindfulness of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) et à la méditation bouddhiste après une retraite de 11 jours au Sri Lanka, au prenatal and post natal et à travers des workshops le yoga pour les enfants. En ce début 2020 d'année j´ai aussi eu la chance de pouvoir voyager dans le sud de l´Inde pour continuer à me former avec un YTT de 300 heures. 


Aujourd´hui je vis entre Barcelone ma région d'origine et le pays basque ma région "d'adoption" que j'adore pour sa proximité à l´océan et la nature :) J´ai commencé à travailler avec l´école Rainbowlight yoga depuis juillet 2020 en assistant Sunshine pour ses formations. Je suis maintenant très impatiente et heureuse d´encadrer la formation 200 heures en français et j´ai hâte de vous rencontrer à Biarritz!
