Initially a dancer and a gymnast, Maud was first introduced to yoga in New York in 1998 and received training in the traditions of Hatha and Ashtanga.
It was her studies with Maryam Askari, senior Iyengar Teacher in Paris, that inspired Maud to pursue the practice and study of Iyengar Yoga more deeply (a method focusing on alignment, avoiding injuries and helping practitioner to go deeper but in the right and safe way). Leaving behind a successful business career in PR and Public Affairs, she moved to India to get closer to yoga in its traditional aspect. She opened a Yoga Studio in Mumbai and Bangalore - The Yoga House, where she teaches. Maud lives as she teaches and it is felt throughout her class. Maud has participated at Zambhala yoga festival inida, and has taught in retreats in India and Italy. She has been featured by BBC India, NDTV, France 5 and all major Inidan newspapers and magazines.
Maud believes in yoga as a path of personal harmony and transformation and in her class she loves to explore and share the benefits of focused attention to body, mind and breath. As a teacher she supports her students in appreciating themselves in a non judgmental approach and encourages them to personalize their practice for their own needs. She teaches yoga strictly but with a sense of fun and creativity.
For Maud yoga is not only a physical practice but can clear and heal emotional blocks and help you to realize yourself. She designs her class to take the practitioner deeper in their own practice and to allow yoga to become a lifestyle. Her classes combine attention to details and focus on alignment with a relaxing and meditative practice.
