Jivamukti Yoga

Ian is teacher co-founder and program director of Jivamukti Yoga Paris since 2020

He hopes to inspire and serve others by offering an integrated practice and experience of Jivamukti Yoga as he has practiced and understood it from his teachers. As a student over many seasons he attended classes at the center in New York, this was a daily ritual that complemented his life there for so long, he has since just wanted to share that. Ian is indebted to all his teachers and masters over the years, especially his mentor Rima Rabbath who ultimately showed such dedication and service that she has inspired him to follow on this path as best he may, from Beirut, to Berlin and now Paris.

May yoga can be a tool to help us learn to be more receptive in order to nourish our highest potential! Ian believes Yoga asana not only transforms the physical body, and can lead to radiant health, but working with the other limbs of Yoga can purify our subtlest form. This prepares us to be a better instrument, a better servant, to make of ourselves like the Buddha has said, like a light.
