Born in France, Hélène discovered the beautiful practice of yoga in 2002 while working as a journalist and photographer in Tokyo. She used yoga to rehabilitate and neutralize her serious back problems. Soon, she began to see its tremendous physical and spiritual benefits. She was initiated into ashtanga yoga in Hong Kong and completed her initial 200-hr teacher training in 2007.

After moving to New York in 2009, she turned to a more calm and mindful yoga practice. She completed the “Anatomy Studies for Yoga Teachers” program with Jason Ray Brown and studied anatomy and breath-centered yoga with Leslie Kaminoff. Hélène believes that yoga develops strength, flexibility, and focus, as well as physical and spiritual balance. Her style is inspired by ashtanga, vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga, and also by the wonderful teachers she has practiced and studied with.

Hélène is certified as an E-RYT 500 by Yoga Alliance and has been teaching yoga for more than 10 years. Her classes are vigorous and challenging. She takes great care to adapt her classes to every student’s physical capabilities, focusing on breath and alignment, and using clear, sensitive guidance.
