- Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India
A visiting faculty, comes every year to do her 300 hours YTTC with us. Dominique discovered yoga in 1975 after a severe motorcycle accident and began teaching yoga in 1991 in Nepal. She practiced different styles of yoga but finally adopted Vinyasa Yoga and has since developed her own style based on the teachings of Krishnamacharya. This style is eclectic and incorporates the best elements of other schools. Though her style of yoga is open she remains faithful to the ancient yoga traditions and her continued study of yoga tradition gives her a sound grounding which she communicates to her students.
Dominique has run many intensive yoga retreats and teacher training courses. Her study of Western anatomy, Chinese Medicine, Japanese Shiatsu, Reiki, and Indian Ayurveda complements her yoga. She knows non-tantric as well as tantric forms of meditation and now follows Dzogchen teaching. She is an experienced and registered yoga teacher (500E-RYT) with Yoga Alliance USA and owns ‘Yogayantra’ a registered yoga school.
