Name: Maud Léger
Role: Junior Facilitator, Marketing & Community Development VIC
Maud did her first Downward Facing Dog on the roof of her company´s building 5 years ago, overlooking the iconic roofs of Paris. She was instantly intrigued by the intricate combination of physical challenge and inner journey.
She first trained in Iyengar Yoga in Paris with Alex Onfroy before relocating to Australia in 2012 and completing her certification with Power Living. She has since continued training with internationally acclaimed teachers like Megan Currie, Tiffany Cruikshank, Ana Forest, Cameron Shayne, Régine Chopinot. Maud recently spent time in Rishikesh, India training with Iyengar Yoga Master, Usha Devi.
Maud brings a grounding and nurturing energy to her classes yet delivers physically challenging, anatomically intelligent and somewhat sensual classes.
She also incorporates in her teaching some of her interests and knowledge in anatomy, movement and somatic practices acquired throughout her experience as a dance artist as well as her insights from her own yoga practice, including both physical and philosophical aspects.
With a passion for movement, Maud teaches yoga to allow people to take (back) ownership of both their body and mind and to enable motion and connection to follow.
Getting to know the crew:
What sound do you love?
The sound of rain pouring over the roof, the sweet whisper of the waves hitting the shore, the sound of people laughing out loud, the sound of the wood cracking in the fire place and…the sound of the cork popping out of a Champagne bottle.
When you are not extending, bending and sweating what do you like to do?
I play with fresh blooms, I cook, I spend time in nature, I dream, I dance.
How do you want your students to feel after class?
When students walk out of my class I hope they feel inspired, embodied and fearless of being themselves.
