The French Yoga Connection offers classes of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the spirit of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois’ teachings. Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional form of dynamic yoga responding to all individual needs. It combines flexibility, strength, balance and focus, bringing physical and mental well-being. Yoga is a journey to find personal balance, an intimate quest of one’s self.
Created in 2011 by Céline Gaudron-Baudouy, the school proposes classes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students in several locations in Downtown Nantes. The training is rigorous, offered in a spirit of sharing, non-competition and kindness. Each student is supported according to her/his specific needs, level and goals.
The French Yoga Connection also offers on-line courses to facilitate and expand the practice of Ashtanga. Students are free to practice wherever they are, whenever they want, and for as long as they wish. General and specific classes are offered. On-line classes do not replace a teacher but are a useful complement to Yoga practice.
Céline wishes to establish a broad community of Yogi and Yogini, an open sharing space, a welcoming place to unroll a mat.
