Adeline Boissard

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

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.

*Please read The Yoga Sutras of Master Patanjali (I recommend the commentaries by Swami Sachidananda) and the Bhagavad Gita (I suggest that you read this in full and original text instead of commentary) and finally the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

*Watch our tutorials on our YouTube Channel

* If you are not confident in your practical skills, you can consider taking our online course, totally free before enrolling in the in-person teacher training
