Cecile was born in Switzerland and has been living in Amsterdam for quite some time with her husband and two boys. All her life she has been physically active. 16 years ago she discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Everything she has done so far on a physical level she found back in Ashtanga. Cecile taught and practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga for a while until she realized that she needed more depth and technique in the poses.

After exploring several yoga styles Cecile found what she was searching for in Iyengar yoga. What she loves about yoga is that when you think you understand it there is another door opening up with endless learning material. She is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher.
In her classes Cecile likes to bring the depth and awareness of Iyengar yoga with a soft touch of flow, where students feel energized but calm and relaxed at the same time. What Cecile loves about teaching is seeing the transformation in the students physically and also mentally. Her goal is reached when her students tell her how they integrate their body awareness they learned during the class in everyday life.
