Yoga teacher Celine is a nomadic yogini and surfer for over 10 years. She has been taught in many different countries and guided by some inspiring swamis, yogis and gurus (including Swami Vivekananda Saraswati, Sri Prem Baba, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Venerable Robina Courtin, Tara Judelle, and Sally Kempton) all of whom devoted their lives to transmit the ancient teachings of tantric yoga and tao.
I chose to study and teach tantra, because it brought some explanations to phenomena I intuitively felt but couldn’t explain in words. Neither a religion nor a dogma, it is more a science based on your own experiment. Insisting on connections, this self-understanding system describes both inner (the human being) and outer universe as complex networks interacting with eachother . Healing yourself becomes the first step toward finding harmony between both and creating your life from within.
“Tantra uses all the manifestations of the life energy, the Shakti, as a tool to reach higher states of consciousness. It studies and embraces life in all its manifestations; body, emotions, energy, sexuality, astrology, sounds (mantras), patterns (yantras)….. Hatha yoga, a body orientated practice, comes from the tantric tradition. The awareness you develop first on a body level is then extended to your heart, mind and spirit, allowing you to get rid of the unnecessary veils covering your true self. Tantra is a powerful framework for transformation and spiritual development if you are ready to acknowledge, study and experience your darkness and your light.”
She consciously engages in her practice and studies, giving her a continuously evolving knowledge and understanding of the interconnected nature of all things. She believes that we use only a tiny part of our potential and thus teaches with the intention to create a space for students to experience their own magic as a tool for evolution and empowerment into everyday life. Celine is a trained tantra teacher and created Feline Yoga – a specific formula of workshops and one to one sessions for women to embrace all the aspects of their femininity and embody their sensual intuition. Celine has taught yoga and tantra in Thailand, India, France, Australia and Bali.
