Classes are quiet and slow paced as tissues yield to gravity when movements remain soft and gradual.The approach to simple and more complex postures relies on the body’s natural intelligence. Releasing old holding patterns allows to reach deep within and observe instead the respiratory action moving the whole body.Classes are small to allow enough attention for each student - including hands-on adjustments (with prior permission from students).


After nearly thirty years of personal practice, further study with senior teachers and her own research Aude has developed her own unique style and teaching methodology. Aude is an artist and this other expertise spreads into her Yoga classes, whether in her use of imagery or in encouraging a creative approach to explore our Yoga body.


YOGA WITH AUDE is based on the following:• Yoga is a tool for openness to the new, change, risk (in measure) and Adventure;• Yoga is an enquiry into apparent opposites such as rigorous and soft, strong and supple, awake and quiet, grounded and light and considering obstacles as stepping stones;• Yoga is a source of support and inspiration as life continually throws in ‘little surprises’;• Yoga is about expansion and integration;• Yoga is joyful and generous;• Non-violence (ahimsa) is integral part of Yoga with Aude. Working to maximum capacity is possible without bad pain or injury.

Questions and Answers (some)

Who is YOGA for?
Yoga is for all, regardless of stamina or natural suppleness (or perceived lack of). Providing the correct overall pace for all students is not compromised, classes support working with and managing problems related to ageing, injury and some chronic conditions - as students are encouraged to practice within their measure.
Students with specific health conditions may first like to seek a qualified Yoga Therapist (check IAYT International Association of Yoga Therapists). Aude recommends that you consult your GP if you have any difficulties or concerns about your ability to participate in Yoga-based movements.HOW OFTEN should you come to class?
While one Yoga class should yield immediate effects, there is no secret and a regular weekly practice delivers continuous incremental results – forever.
Bring a willingness to work slowly and quietly, to be attentive and notice how the practice moves the body and brings wellness (and at times, often wonderment).
Practicing in class near others cultivates a sense of companionship while everyone retains their uniqueness. Learning from others is profoundly valuable.



  • “Yoga with Aude is a magical practice. Expertly combining very strong poses with meditation and mindset, all reached slowly and carefully to be the most effective they can be. Aude’s yoga has helped me come back from serious ankle injury, manage and strengthen around a back issue, and build balance and body awareness. Aude herself is a delightfully charming and thoroughly caring teacher. You know that your best interests are at the heart of the practice both for body and mind.” (Charles - DJ, Creative Director and Graphic Designer)

  • "The moment I came to Aude’s yoga class 8 or 9 years ago, I knew I had found a special teacher.

  • Aude’s approach is encouraging and welcoming. She is not about pushing for hero poses. Instead, she is about deepening your connection to your body, opening to the joy of the body opening. This is also work, good work, and Aude challenges us to blossom that little bit further each time - but it’s always challenge at the right level for each student. She is passionate and delightful; it’s simply a joy to practise with her." (Susan)

  • "Aude is an incredibly caring and gifted yoga teacher. Whether in person or online, through Aude's gentle and patient guidance and encouragement, we are able to work deeply to build our suppleness, strength and flexibility. She is highly aware of the uniqueness of our bodies and always ready to adapt her teaching to accommodate the needs of all her students. She creates a wonderfully safe space for her students to come together and I always leave class feeling emotionally uplifted and able to tackle the world outside." (Beverley)

  • "Aude is a fabulous teacher and her practice is truly inspirational. Even on difficult days, when my body is tired or my mind exhausted, I look forward to joining her classes, knowing that I will always feel better, stronger, and more grounded afterwards. Aude teaches with so much kindness and at the same time an incredible attention to detail: even in the online classes she knows exactly how I should adjust and get better in my practice each and every time."

  • “I treasure my yoga sessions with Aude. I first discovered her unique approach as a newcomer to yoga, and immediately felt safe. I quickly grew to trust her completely as she adapts her approach to her students and takes care of us all. One thing I particularly appreciate is how Aude engages the brain - this is not just physical work, it goes deep, each session is different and I become unaware of time passing. I always end the class refreshed and revived.” (Elspeth)
