Studying Yoga internationally in Europe and Asia since 1995, Sebastian’s personal journey through Yoga started with Ashtanga, Hatha and Yin-Yoga.
For more than 25 years, Sebastian has practiced Martial Arts, Shiatsu, Yoga and Meditation, refining and stabilizing his research to the study of Yin-Yoga as a foundation, to sustain and promote a holistic lifestyle while cultivating and developing a tranquil mind. Combining Western anatomy and meridians theory approach, the practice of Yin Yoga comes to be a potent healing and psycho-spiritual system.
Discovering Yin Yoga in London with Sarah Powers in 2006 at Triyoga Studio, Sebastian was inspired to integrate a more contemplative/meditative mind in his Yoga Practice, in 2009 he came across the training and engaging work of Victor Chng, consolidating his interest in the learning of the quiet practice. Since 2011 Sebastian has continued his study under the prominent expertise of Paul & Suzee Grilley (Founder of Yin-Yoga), assisting them in their last training in Thailand (February 2014).
With extensive trainings in yogic disciplines and interest in Eastern philosophy, Sebastian’s teaching blends both Yin & Yang sequence with guided breath-work and meditation to create sessions that range from intense and vigorous to relaxing and deeply meditative. Sebastian’s devotion for yoga is infectious, he inspires all levels from newcomers to teachers with his insightful and original approach.
Based in Asia, Sebastian teaches workshops throughout the continent and since Summer 2012, has also been teaching in Europe to familiarize people with the practice and teaching of Yin Yoga.
Murielle’s yoga journey began in London early 90s when she discovered a old yoga book in a second hand shop. Experimenting with different styles like Hatha, Iyengar and Prana Flow, she certified as a Yoga Teacher in 2004 at International Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Ashram.
She first came across Yin Yoga in London following some teaching of Sarah Powers in 2006 then a training with Victor Chng in 2009 and until now with Paul and Suzee Grilley (Founder of Yin Yoga) in Singapore, Kho Samui and California.
Murielle is naturally drawn to a meditative and contemplative approach. After studying Vajrayana “The Diamond Way” for over 5 years in London, she feels innately connected to the teachings of the Buddha rather than any particular school, adopting the practice of Yin Yoga to implement her aspiration and research on the spiritual path. Her approach is gentle and compassionate focusing on the breath, letting go and letting be, which encompass so well the essence of the Yin-Yoga practice.
She has also studied Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga with Pujiastuti Sindhu and offers a safe class environment to bring a sense of well being and connection during this important transition time of childbearing.
Presently based in South-East Asia Murielle has been teaching for the past years in different Yoga venue to students from all walks of life and assist Sebastian in all the different Yoga events.
