Hi! I'm Eline Pérès.
You already know I’m a yoga teacher since you’re on my website, but let me tell you a little more. Here are some fun facts about me:
- I shaved my head as a joke. But since, I just can’t change it.
- My best recipe: peanut butter porridge. Just put oat, peanut butter and hot water. Then, let the magic happen!
- I tried to get rid of my French accent. Didn’t work. Now I just make fun of it!
For most people I connect with, the most surprising one of those facts is:
I’m a young dancer, but in the morning, I can be as stiff as a grandma!
But that's what led to my passion for yoga.
When I was studying dance, I was one of the least flexible. I had pain and tightness everywhere! I was wondering:
How can I get rid of this? How can I finally feel comfortable in my own body?
It felt impossible. And stretching more was not helping: my body was still stiff as a board. This was until I realized that instead of doing more in my movement practice, I had to do less. I could simply listen and observe my body open. That’s when I discovered somatic practices and slow, gentle yoga.
And I truly believe this:
Everything you want is already in your body. You just have to unlock to access it. You don’t have to be flexible or young, you just have to listen to your sensations while you move. Yoga can then show you endless possibilities.
And you? Do you believe this too?
Regardless, I still want to thank you for being here with me. And for that, I invite you to start your gentle yoga for free! Just write down your name and your email down there and get started. And I promise: it will always be slow and easy!
