“In a pandemic, self-isolation is called quarantine. In Buddhism, it is called retreat. From the cave of our home, like the meditators of ancient times, we can consciously kindle the lamp of compassion and connection.” ~ Lama Willa Miller ***** I will post erratically, each time I stumble upon a picture or a quote that warms my heart. So we can share the positives vibes … Continue reading We are in a retreat together

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes Marcel Proust Continue reading Weekend vibes
This week is all about lenghtening and opening. Lenghtening our back, the muscles around the hips, so we can open our shoulders and our heart! I love to teach and practice those classes because they are the opposite of what we see on Instagram. We don’t look for perfection in the pose, we aim at feeling freedom. We don’t want to go into the most … Continue reading The Yoga theme of the week
It’s been so long! I can’t believe we haven’t even “liked” each other for so many months. I eyed you on IG sometimes though, but I haven’t been consistent at keeping in touch.

We embody empathy, for … Continue reading The power of a Compliment
My 5 year old son is definitely not an early bird. But this Sunday was different. He started jumping on our bed even before sunrise, as excited as if we were about to travel to France. “Wake up Mum, wake up !!! It’s Mothers’ Day, wake up!!” As much as I loved the intention, 6:15 on a Sunday was a bit early. I traded my … Continue reading My priceless Mothers’ Day presents
With love, smiles and this incredible blue sky we’ve been longing for so long in Hanoï. A few days far from the pollution, with the French family visiting all the way from Paris. We are in the exact same mood as the models in the postcards ! Wishing you all a bright day ❤️ Continue reading From Hoi An
“Every father should remember that his son will follow his example, not his advices“. It’s a candid shot. Nothing posed, nothing framed. But it tells all the love my son has for his Dad. All his admiration, all his respect. Bless this time when anything his does or say is gold. A chance to remember that we are leading by example. “Monkeys see, monkeys do“, … Continue reading Father and Son
