Meeting with Stephanie, #YUJgirl
A brief overview
Can you introduce yourself ? My name is Stéphanie, I am 45 years old and live in a small town near Lille. My two daughters, Jade-Emmanuelle and Garance, are my “Essentials” in life. I have a professional background as a training collaborator and have been doing yoga for fun for years. I also did Shantala training in Paris. I also try to be able to see as many beautiful things as possible that I share on a familyjoe.fr blog, I'm also often in Paris. I am a person who moves, who writes, reads, discovers, photographs, shares...
When and how did you get this interest in yoga? Little by little… I looked for an activity that could relax me, that would help me breathe… Since then… this attraction for yoga has never left me even if I practice it as a hobby. When I'm not going to class, I practice online. I found in this activity an inexplicable peace, the one I needed to put the vagaries of life into perspective.
What does this represent in your daily life? Another vision of life since this magical discovery. Love, Compassion, Gratitude, Appeasement.
Do you find time to practice during your travels? I don't travel much having a phobia of flying (which I will try to overcome one day ;)) … I move around a lot in France. I practice when I can, upon waking, with SUN salutations.
What is your favorite YUJ product? On all orders placed, without hesitation the "happy yogi".
What is your favorite country so far? I am very chauvinistic, I am French and I love France above all!
Good addresses to share: In Paris, I love going for a drink at Les Perchoirs, that of Ménilmontant, the Marais or the Gare de l'Est. Two restaurants that I recommend in my area: first of all, - Le Vert Mont , and that of - La Cour de Rémi . Then a shop that I particularly like, Thank you .
For you, is “the place to be”? It's with the people I love, where calm reigns.
In the cinema, which actors/directors make you dream? I will certainly make you laugh… and that's good by the way! Stéphane Freiss has a physique that leaves you dreaming! As for exceptional actresses, I would just say Isabelle Huppert for her unbeatable class and Fanny Ardant for her sweet voice.
A quote that defines you? "Let's try to overcome what opposes us and multiply what unites us" - Jean d'Ormesson
What does a day in the life of Stephanie look like? I get up early, I prepare breakfast that I share with my daughters before school. I'm lucky to be able to organize my time, I can start with a yoga class behind my mac, ride a bike or walk in the countryside. No day is alike to really describe it. I also have 3 exceptional friends whom I see often: Barbara, Delphine and Géraldine.
