Yoga & Meditation Teacher – Angelique

Growing up in the warm waters of French island, La Reunion, Angelique knows just how therapeutic island life can be. Her curiosity for an enriched life led her to discover Yoga through the practice of Ashtanga. The positive impact of the practice in her own life encouraged her to complete her 1000hr Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in at the Yoga Space, Perth.

Angelique would describe her classes as both ‘playful vinyasa’ and ‘moving meditation’ and has furthered her training by completing both the Jon Kabat Zinn based Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program and further Yoga Nidra and Relaxation Workshops. She enjoys empowering others with simple mindfulness and meditation based techniques to allow them to more readily work with the everyday stressors of life.

Angelique has also completed post-graduate training in Yin Yoga (A deeply relaxing practice focussing on the bodies connective tissue) and Pre/Post-Natal Yoga.

This wide range of practices and training is reflected in Angelique’s playful yet therapeutic classes; which she readily adapts to students of every level, beginner to advanced.

Angelique is currently practicing Ashtanga yoga under the guidance of Sharath Jois in Mysore India, and looks forward to returning to Talalla from April 2014.
