Eddie Teboul

Hometown: New York, Born in Paris. Raised in France, Switzerland & UK.


Experience:
(800 Hours Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher (but not limited to) Since 2007.


Before Yoga:
Editorial Fashion Design Hair and involved in Sound & Visual Arts.
Mentors: David Life, Nicole Nichols, Sri K. Pathabi Jois, Mark Whitwell, David Hollander
and David Bowie.


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 commended flow of intuitive natural sequences, assisted postures, inspiring music for the senses, rest and meditation at the end of its journey.

Vinyasa is characterized by flowing poses and sequences that are linked to the breath. This class is diverse and sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy and in general is a vigorous, more athletic approach to yoga.
