“It was definitely worth it to wait and search for 5 years for this training of Selma and Yohann. Beginning the day with yoga and meditation was excellent in terms of staying in our own center and warming up to movements. They showed us that Thai massage is not just about movements, but how much healing is happening with compassion and loving touch. Selma and Yohann offered to convey what they knew to the last drop. It was a great experience to learn Thai massage from their approach and point of view. The 10-day retreat was really tiring but the result was softened hearts and excitement about what’s coming next!! Infinite gratitude for your contribution, caring and countless things you have taught us through your presence!”

Who we are
Before his Yoga journey began, Yohann worked as an IT engineer, working alternatively for the private sector and non profits. He also worked as an English to French translator.
In 2012 he discovered Yoga and studies it since then. He mainly focuses on Yin Yoga, long and gentle deep stretches in an atmosphere of introspective silence. Through Jane Mackarness he discovered Yoga Nidra and immediately recognized the beauty and healing potential of this old and timeless approach.
Yoga came as a rescue boat in a time of deep physical pain, and mental anxiety. Over the years after this initial meeting, he immersed himself in various healing techniques, hands-on healing, Thai Yoga Massage, Reiki and Yoga Nidra and discovered his natural peace and silence and healed his body and mind. From this place of contentment, he teaches and practice Thai massage, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, and loves to meet and be of service to those whose lives have turned towards healing and self recognition.
Now it is joy to be able to share the Yoga Nidra Teacher Training for all of thoses who are called by this beautiful practice.
Yohann is a disciple of Advaita Master Sri Mooji and he’s forever grateful for the love, the clarity and the sense of service to all that his master keeps revealing in him. He also volunteers his IT skills for the wider sharing of Sri Mooji non dual pointings, as well as occasionally translate his Satsangs into french live.
