Maud Léger

Student level

My yoga journey started on the rooftop of my workplace in Paris. Then life took me to Melbourne where my love for yoga rekindled, offering me a safe refuge to escape the unsettling romance I was trapped in. Today I share yoga to offer people a safe space to be, to feel, to grow.

Teaching Style

  • Adjusments/Assists: I offer hands-on assists to enhance the students' experience or help them bridge the gap between what their body can do and what their mind restricts them from doing.

  • Sequencing: Generally I sequence classes towards a peak pose and/or an energetic apex. My understanding of Ayurveda also helps me sequence according to the environment, seasonal changes, and/or energy in the room.

  • Music: From Om chanting to Miles Davis with some loud Drake but also Nils Frahm.
