Laurent Sindres

शङ्कर

Laurent Sindres is a Raja and Hatha Yoga teacher graduate of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre of Uttarkashi in the Himalayas. He is registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. He learned and practiced in ashrams in India, in contact with a living tradition combining postures, breath and study of sacred texts. He has studied for 20 years the great spiritual and religious traditions: he received a theological education at the Catholic Institute of Paris and explored the Jewish and Sufi traditions. His teaching of yoga is in the indian philosophy tradition, but the extent of his personal research allows him to transmit from the essence of our humanity, beyond this or that tradition.

Before becoming a yoga teacher, he was a dancer and practiced tango and contemporary dance for 20 years . He is also a marathon and ultra marathon runner.

With these experiences and his knowledge of the biomechanics, he helps his students to build confidence in their abilities by laying the foundations of an adapted and regular practice.

Laurent grew up in close contact with nature in the woods of Burgundy in France. This has deeply nourished his vision of the world and the intimate certainty that our link to life, and particularly to the plant world, is a gateway to what the great traditions call "liberation".

This conviction leads him to offer workshops in inspiring natural places, as well as classes accompanied by the music of plants.

Meditation teacher and singer of Indian classical music

 

After graduating from the Sivananda Yoga Center of Uttarkashi in the Himalayas, Nathalie specialized in the transmission  of meditative practices. After 30 years of carrer as a singer, actress and dancer, a long journey as a singing teacher in Modern Music, and university studies in ethnomusicology, she has turned to North Indian classical music, using voice and sound as a path to awakening. Also trained in Tibetan yoga, her practice is nourished by her personal research on the roots common to Tibetan tantric practices and Indian hatha yoga. She has translated several books about Central Asian masters of wisdom and founded the project Architects of the Eas-West Dialogue to facilitate intercultural understanding.

Her in-depth experience as a dancer of Argentinian tango led her to train in the biomechanics of movement and several somatic techniques, including perceptual pedagogy (graduate of CF3P - Paris). She is a registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance.
