Here I have the pleasure to join a clinic of several therapists.
Born in Geneva and a French native speaker, I am also fluent in English and Swedish. I have working knowledge of Swiss German, Spanish & Italian.
After four years in the world of dance, I moved from an artistic feeling of the body into a scientific understanding of it. The Geneva School of Physiotherapy equipped me for a successful professional life. Thank you to the teachers and to the Physio-Geneva-1917-2017 Association who organize the ongoing training, providing everyone with top-quality service.
Certified in 1987, I worked for 4 years in hospital settings, with one year in Sweden, and the 3 years in private clinics before setting up my own clinic on Rue de Lyon. 2021, a pivotal year: the clinic closed down and I have the pleasure to join a team of therapists in Lancy. Now working part time, I focus on background treatment like Global Postural Reeducation® (GPR®) and Yoga.
Just out of curiosity, in 2011 I undertook certified trainings, which led me to share as a yoga teacher since 2012, with a specific focus on functional anatomy, on the slides within the joints for instance. Gradually, the therapeutic benefits of yoga became obvious to me. Each year, part of the proceeds from my yoga sessions go to the "Camarada" association.
My teachers have drawn from ancient traditions, linking them with recent scientific discoveries.
Annie Carpenter: Smart Flow Yoga®

Other teachers, assistants and students continue to inspire me.
Instruction carries on as we are all "students"!
Indeed, since ancient times yoga has been handed down in an uninterrupted chain from master to student. There is no master who did not himself have a master. Therefore we are students and seekers.
That’s the first of 195 aphorisms or "yoga-sutras" of Patañjali. "Now (Atha), Yoga will be taught (shâsanam) to you as it has been handed down in an uninterrupted (anu) way."
Or, more simply: "Here, now is the teaching of yoga."
