Translating comPassion into Experience.
I create opportunities to nurture and balance the trinity of body, mind and soul by weaving passion into a time, a place and memorable movement experiences via studio citrAyus & citrAyus retreats.
I practice movement to bring myself back into an awareness of the more subtle integration of the physical, mental, emotional & spiritual alignment into my body. I teach movement to invite others to explore their own awareness and the possibility of fulfilling their own potential.

I am a free and intuitive spirit, loving nature and meditation. I believe our true nature is love.
The voice within made me leave my job for yoga, I had no idea where I was embarking as yoga wasn't a big thing for me at that time.
Yoga was first a way to reconnect with my body, now it is a way to connect with my soul and change the world for the better by spreading more love & light.
For me yoga is a moving meditation, like a walk in nature that helps us reconnect with ourselves and bring a sense of peace. I believe yoga is a gift that should be accessible to all, this is the reason why I share yoga with war emigrants and favor donation.
I was trained in vinyasa by Briohny Smyth and Dice-Ida Klein. Currently training with Sianna Sherman for a tantric approach of yoga, as well as a yin with Gemma Vassallo.
My intuition led me to develop a style that combines elements and chakras for more balance. Teaching in an intuitive way, it is important for me to listen to one's needs and bodies. The ingredients of my classes : pranayamas, asanas, mudras, meditation, mantras and a splash of ukulele.
'Namaste, the light in me recognizes and bows to the light in you'
I've been playing with wardrobes all my life. From styling my mother's outfits, as a child, to designing women's and children's wear internationally, as an adult. I came to realise my true passion in 2014 with the creation of The Closet Guru Paris.
I help women feel beautiful by clearing out the clutter in their closets and healing their relationships with their wardrobes and their mirrors. In doing so, they rediscover their inner compass and only true guru - themselves. In 2015, I moved beyond the closet, with Yoga and Meditation, certified by the Yoga Alliance to teach Vinyasa and by Guru Dass Kaur to teach ChildPlay Yoga.
I have created my own style of Moving Meditation which focuses on connecting and aligning with ones values on and off the mat. Gratitude and Unity Consciousness are my guiding lights, and I strive to make yoga accessible to everyone regardless of age, fitness, flexibility and socio-economic status.
“There is a Guru in every closet,” I like to say. Sometimes however, she gets buried and pushed into the dark, under the masks and false promises that do not serve. Beauty is Love expressed - it cannot be bought and is for everyone to claim. My mission is to help you free your inner Guru from the clutter of convention, and be beautiful as only you can be.
Self awareness is the key, compassion is essential, and truly being in love with your life is the ultimate luxury. Discover the Guru in your Closet, figuratively and literally. Are you ready to be this kind of beautiful?
