Eddie Teboul

HOMETOWN
New York; Born in Paris. Raised in France, Switzerland & UK

PHILOSOPHY
Eddie trusts that we want balance between the 3 dimensional and the subtle distinctions to feel grounded in a daily modern living while emotionally happy and minimal.
Yoga can bring that balance almost immediately while it weaves a wide spectrum of physical precision, breathing and sound dynamics that cultivate all our dimensions in the immediacy of the instance. Eddie's class is a mind calming commanded flow of intuitive natural sequences, assisted postures, inspiring music for the senses, rest and meditation at the end of its journey.
