About

Philippe encountered yoga when he was about 8 years old through his inspirational yoga teacher grandmother (she is still practicing today into her late 80’s). Yoga in one form or another has been his companion ever since.

In 2010 he was introduced to a radically new way of learning yoga inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. This approach centred on the feelings and inner life of the person practicing and a sense of ‘un-doing’. In the approach there wasn’t any external idea of ‘harsh ambition’, ‘getting it right’ or ‘fixing the body’ (in both senses). This experience led him on a path that completely changed his practice, but at the same time brought him back home to the kind, original and uncomplicated teachings of his grandmother.
