About Me

Hi, I teach English, French and Yoga. Before moving to Canada, I lived in France for two years and before that in India.

In 2019-2020, I taught Business English to over 200 students of Master’s 1st and 2nd year for a total of over 400 hours in-classroom. I also conducted over 45 conversation sessions in smaller groups.

In 2018-19, I worked as an English language assistant at a middle school and a high school in France where I worked with students between the ages of 14 and 20 and we focused on English conversations, and we also studied specific topics in more detail.

I encourage students to participate and get the most out of our time together.

I am a professionally qualified chartered accountant from India with over 11 years of experience in the finance and accounting domain in Mumbai, but I wanted to explore careers and do something more people centric. I like having a positive impact on someone’s life and sharing my passion for languages. I started teaching English in 2018 and I really enjoy it.

Dance & Healing | The Transcendental Embodiment - Behind & Beyond
Are you seeking a movement, dance, or an embodied practice for emotional, psychological, and physical well-being? Welcome to The Transcendental Embodiment class ! I am here to support and guide you in your own process of discovering your inner healing power through: - chakras meditation & alignment - self-expression & subjective experience - expanding your heart space & emotional awareness in movement and dance - release of stress, judgment, and trapped emotions - being grounded in self-care & resilience The classes are tailored, designed, and adjusted regarding the specific needs, capabilities, uniqueness, and artistic voice of each individual. As a professional dancer, teacher, and performance maker I am introspectively processing each working day in consciousness, listening to my upcoming emotions, triggers, or anxiety when it comes to be physically and mentally performative in a team, or as a freelance artist. Instead of suppressing these emotions and creating energetical and mental blockages (that can end up into somatic pains or burn-out): we should pay more attention to these inner warning messages and strengthen our emotional intelligence to be able to cope with the infinitesimal external stimulus and daily-stress of our very fast lives. It can be challenging to sense with clarity what is the origin of some feelings of frustration, unsatisfaction, discomfort, or grief, and it can be intimidating or discouraging to walk alone on that path. This class helps you to commit to your better-being, presence to oneself countering wellness procrastination. * What do you need to feel lighter, brighter, or happier in your everyday life? * * What is your self-achievement potentiality? * - For who? : For anyone who enjoys movement and dance, and desires a better connection and understanding with their moving bodies. / ​One-to-one or group sessions. - ​Where? : Online via SKYPE or at the student's location. Values: Integrity, Transparency, Respect, Cooperation * About TTE : The Transcendental Embodiment (TTE) is the result of three years of research and development. Merging from a movement philosophy research entitled Behind & Beyond, to its phenomenological understanding. The metaphysical unity of the tangible and intangibles bodies expounds the undeniable relationships between those in the physical realm. The tangible body (the material vehicle), the intangibles bodies (psychological, emotional, energetical, and spiritual). As a dance healing practice, guiding the practitioner to conscious corporeality, and subjective emotional understanding, this methodology can also be a useful tool to improve artistry and technical skills on a deeper level, widening mindful creativity, awareness, empathy, and sensitivity. (TTE) movement and dance methodology combines a meditative approach in stillness and through movement, awakening the mind, spreading the awareness into different body parts; put a specific emphasis on improvisation skills, and musicality, following energy impulses and intuitive movement, increasing the flow of energy. Inviting the practitioners to practice resilience, non-self definition, non-judgment, self-care and self-love, integrity, and acceptance to overcome technical, physical, and mental limits holding the practitioner from his self-achievement potentiality. This approach builds itself crescendo on subjective movement reflexivity and introspective journey through the following process: ​ * The four steps: Being | Investigation | Exploration | Dedication Unconscious - Subconscious - Conscious - Transcendental Consciousness Feel free to contact me for any inquiries.

Online Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation Class - English - All Levels
This Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation class is the perfect practice to release anxiety, rebalance the nervous system, invite calmness and stillness into the mind, surrender to what is and go within. Yin Yoga is a passive, meditative, slow-paced style of Yoga. The postures are mainly floor-based and are typically held for between 2-5 minutes, Physically, by holding the postures for this length we are able to access the deep connective tissue, targeting the fascia, tendons, and ligaments. Energetically, Yin Yoga improves the flow of energy (or chi) in the body. This helps to release blockages or stagnation in the meridian lines (energy centers taught in Chinese Medicine). Because the postures are held for a long period of time, breath awareness and mindfulness are large parts of Yin Yoga. As you hold the postures I will guide you through meditation, mindfulness and breathwork practices.

Yin Yoga Class with meditation and breathing practice
I am a certified yin yoga teacher and I offer 1 hour 30 minutes yin yoga experience. WHAT IS YIN YOGA Yin Yoga is a slow paced and passive style of yoga practice where postures are practiced on the floor in static way for an extended period of time ranging from two to five minutes. When combines with internal awareness yin yoga also becomes a highly meditative tool to cultivate inner silence, enhance awareness and explore the deeper realm of our consciousness. PROGRAM Class is very appropriate for beginner and advanced practitioners. In 1.30 hour class we will start with 15 minutes guided meditation then we will continue 60 minutes with yin yoga poses. These poses mainly work with lower of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine and focus on facia. The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. We are opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely. We will close our practice with breathing exercise such as Nadi Shodhana, Ocean Breath. Breathing exercises can have an effect on your state of mind, improve cognitive function and reduce symptoms of anxiety. The last 15 minutes we can have tea, my hand made glutem free sweet and talk about yoga, life, meditation. WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING • Very big smile and positive energy • Yoga mat- If you don’t have no worries I have enough • Comfortable clothes
