About Isabelle

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela

Isabelle has always been attracted to serving people. She started working at a young age in the restaurant business as well as studying and working as a Travel Agent. Then, she moved to the USA and opened a restaurant with her husband on Eastern Long Island. When she began to feel the stress of operating a restaurant, yoga quickly became her main way of coping. She immediately loved yoga and all of its benefits, which eventually pushed her to become certified. This was so she could share the joy she experienced from yoga and connecting the body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

In 2001, Isabelle became a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, and soon earned her 500-hour Professional Level Certification. Since then, she has earned additional training certificates such as Prenatal and Pregnancy, as well as Children’s Yoga. With a background in dancing, studying Vinyasa with Shiva Rea, as well as a Yoga Dance Certification in 2009, many of her classes integrate the fluidity of body movement as seen in dance.

She also has a Thai Yoga Bodywork Certification that she earned from her teacher, Jonas Westring, in 2009. She continues to use these teachings to bring their benefits to her students. Her one-on-one private sessions create extraordinary results and healing properties through the usage of hands-on techniques, yoga postures, pranayama, meditation as well as deep relaxation. When you are fully able to let go and relax, each session brings a magical quality of transformational healing that unfolds within you. This allows you to constantly discover other dimensions of who you truly are.

Living a natural and healthy lifestyle, she became an Essential Oils wellness coach seven years ago so she can empower people to live a happier, healthier, and safer life with the help of essential oils.

In 2018 she received two more certifications.  The first was her certification to teach the art of Aerial Yoga which has amazing healing benefits for your whole body while having fun being suspended in the air.

Finally she has become a Chopra Center Primordial Sound Meditation teacher.  This came at the right time of her life as it saved her from going crazy while in the midst of major health issues.  It provides the foundation for better health, more loving relationships, greater life success, unconditional peace and spiritual awakening.  Just a few minutes a day allows us to experience wholeness in our lives, which supports balance, healing and transformation

Because her son Tristan is one of her greatest inspirations, Isabelle is committed to creatively introducing yoga to both children and adults in a playful way. She has also had the opportunity to study with teachers who specialized in different lineages of yoga, so her classes seamlessly integrate influences from various yoga traditions. Her goal is to bring the true essence of yoga to her students with joy, power, exuberance, caring, healing, as well as love. She wants her students to not only feel empowered, but discover the teacher within themselves.
