Celine moved to Richmond from New York City in 2009, after working as a STOTT- certified Pilates apparatus & matwork instructor on Madison Avenue.
In Richmond, she rediscovered yoga and the art of mindfulness intrinsic to the practice. Seeking to deepen her knowledge of anatomy and mind-body instruction, Celine earned her 200-hour teaching training through YogaWorks.
Compassion is at the heart of her teaching, as she works both with Beginners and Special Populations, helping to lay a strong foundation for building their practice. As an instructor, Celine hopes that her students experience great freedom in yoga— the flow of energy that allows for creativity, self-expression and ultimately, peace of mind.
“I want to make yoga as accessible to as many people as possible. In an ideal world, I want for everyone to experience yoga, in a safe and encouraging environment that also facilitates self-reflection. You move through the challenges of yoga, as you move through the challenges of life.”
“My father always told me that my heart would lead me to my career.” Quoting Confucious, “If you find something you love to do, you never have to work a day in your life.” That certainly couldn’t be more true.
