Muriel Macé is a french woman from Réunion Island. Her life in Paris was a unique experience with the museums, the gardens, theater, jazz clubs. I “love life” and I bite into it as much as I can. I am very happy with it so far as it has brought me to Australia. I like travelling and after visiting most of Europe, it was time to learn something new. My perspective in life is, “Enjoy the moment and live it 100%. Life is short and my current studies reminds me of this all the time!!!!
Outside of yoga, I could spend hours walking beaches, bushes, mountains… swimming in the ocean may be because I grew up on an Island. I love cooking anything and everything, baking cakes or pastries – any time.
My yoga journey started in 2005 in a bikram studio in Paris. After a couple of classes, I decided to be a bit more curious and explore other styles, ie ashtanga, Iyengar and Hatha yoga. I fell in love with the power vinyasa yoga about 3 years ago. I did my training with Duncan Peak and his amazing teacher, Baron Baptiste. The iyengar course that I participated in guided me to set up the foundation of my teaching. The ashtanga practice gave me the space that I needed to settle and clear my mind and the vinyasa brings it all together with lot of fun!
Of course the influence of Duncan Peak and Baron Baptiste are in my teaching, but I believe that there needs to be balance everywhere, especially in a yoga class. My classes are based on a flowing sequence. Offering a challenge and also the opportunity to relax and get centered. You will flow from standing sequences to balancing asanas, finishing with a nice and relaxing sequence to close the practice, and get you ready to face the outside world. The Iyengar (refined alignment) verbal cues and yoga philosophy interlace in the class will encourage you to stay in the pose and challenge yourself.
Recently, I met a 6-year old boy with leukemia. He was smiling, playing, enjoying what he can at that moment. And his parents were enjoying every moment spent with him too.
