Traditional Balinese herbal steam therapy is one of the most efficient methods of eliminating toxic wastes through the skin and respiratory system. After an intensive bodywork or massage session, pockets of stored toxins have been broken up in the body and need to be released through the skin’s pores.
Sweating is one of the body’s natural purification methods and the Balinese have traditionally used herbs in the sauna to assist in this process.
The heat enlarges blood vessels, which in turn boosts blood circulation, allowing oxygen and nutrients to more readily heal and detoxify the body.

I can describe myself as a nature lover and world traveller.
After important life events, I decided to break with the past and start a new experience in South Asia. There I have been travelling, working and deepening my Yoga practice over the past 3 years and I realised how powerful and influencing Yoga can be on people’s existence.
Yoga and its philosophy have totally changed my approach to life by empowering me to be happier, trust myself and share infinite joy.
That is what I want to share with you!
In Bali, I became a certified yoga instructor and also discovered Acroyoga and FlyHigh Yoga.
A new world of trust, care and fun was open to me.
In my classes you will enhance self-confidence, rediscover the community feeling and find new aspects of yourself. I will challenge you, transmit my passion and conquer your heart with a bright smile!
