Hi, my name is Audrey.
I am from Marseille in the South of France and also lived in China, USA and UK before settling in Canada.
Navigating through eating disorder and depression during my youth, it was only a few years ago that I realised I had to slow down after a pulled lower back muscle made me unable to walk for a few days. Yoga helped me in my physical recovery. As I went deeper into the philosophy and values, things fell into place. I realised I had been living with PTSD symptoms for over 20 years due to a childhood complex trauma and most ailments came from there. My body, my mind were impregnated with the trauma, even so many years later. Recovering mobility is one thing but recovering freedom is another.
I live to reverse the situation and share my experience in trauma recovery with others; my aim is to empower students to heal themselves and I use meditation, conscious breathing and slow mindful movements to this aim.
Currently, I hold a 200 hours Vinyasa Flow certification; I also attended Depression, Addiction and Anxiety awareness (Aaron Moore) and Trauma Center – Trauma Sensitive Yoga (David Emerson) 30 hours training.
My next specialisation is the Yoga Therapist 800 hours training with Yoga Therapy Toronto I will start in March 2019.
Audrey is a calm and thoughtful teacher of yoga. I found our ‘sessions’ very helpful and calming yet challenging in the right way. Having previously only had experience of Hatha yoga I was pleasantly surprised at how fulfilling and enjoyable it is to take it a stage further. Flow yoga with Audrey is a very good workout for the whole body and for the mind. Karen Hackett
Audrey is such a beautiful soul and her classes really reflect that. She is caring and welcoming and her passion for creating a safe space to practice really comes across. I loved her thoughtful sequencing, playfulness and heartfelt themes throughout class! Thank you Audrey. Kate Cohen
Audrey is a wonderful teacher. I felt immediately at ease in her presence and enjoyed every aspect of her teaching. She creates an environment that nurtures mind, body and spirit and by the end of her classes, I feel restored. She guides the practice with sensitivity and care and knows how to create a perfect balance. I highly recommend Audrey. Katie Abbott, Founder at Pause Place
