Who am I: Isabelle, proud mother of 3, Greek and French origins.
Who am I, really? Or – better said – HOW do I live my life?
Well, no standards for me please! no static way or static answer applies to me. I have learned to readjust and reconsider myself continuously! To find the right Balance in all sectors of my life. To Connect with myself and others and to Act in order to live every day to the fullest. Go with the flow you might add.
What’s my lifestyle?
When I finished college in Athens and later on in my 20ies, I needed a strong education and a steady career, probably to please my family (isn’t it often the case?) or fill in certain gaps I felt as a kid. This led me to receive my Law Degree in Paris, pursuing a Postgraduate Diploma in International Law and later on to become a lawyer and work for more than 10 years as a corporate lawyer in demanding international organizations and under extremely challenging conditions. So technically, I did what most 20 year-olds do: work to the fullest, burn myself out to achieve more, learn more, in an attempt to recoup my study expenses. Later on, in my early 30ies, I met the man of my life and got married. I became a mum of 3 very quickly and adapted well to my new leaf of life which became increasingly exciting since we took the brave decision back in 2003 to move to Russia and live the life of the ex-pat outside our comfort zone. The sense of adventure was always in my genes. After all, what else is there to keep us alive and going?

My Yoga Story
Yoga has taught me so much about myself, my body’s limitations and potential, how my body is deeply connected with my mind through my breath and my mind’s resilience.
Yoga has shown me the way to find the necessary balance in my life.
Physical activity is not only about running, sweating and loosing your breath. It is mostly about understanding and feeling your body’s sensations and discovering each inch of your muscles, bones, tendons and skin. It is about creating the necessary conditions to develop your physical potential and also about learning to say no, pause and reflect what is happening inside in order to go a step further.
This continuous desire to go one step further made me want to take a yoga certification and today I am so proud of myself that I did it! At the age of 53!
