Arnaud Chartier: Head teacher

Since he was 5 years old, he has dedicated his time to the education of body movement through classical dance and gymnastics.

At the age of 12, the artist in him felt the need to master the martial arts and he trained intensely in boxing for 10 years.

Life gave him a gift when he had an accident that stopped him from boxing.

After 15 years of intensive training, no longer being able to use his body plunged him into a very deep depression.

This encouraged him to travel for more than 10 years to discover himself differently.

He opened up to yoga to restore his physical body, but the real transformation came when he started meditating.

He therefore plunged into Buddhist ascetic and monastic life, spending thousands of hours observing mind-body phenomena.

Life positioned him very quickly as a teacher and for 10 years he shared his achievements in the form of yoga therapy.

Dance was always knocking at the door... of a courageous nature, he transformed his fear of physical contact by practicing contact dance, massage and opened up to the tantric path.

The marriage of his deep presence in the interaction of the body of the other, transmitted to him the possibility of feeling the innate and natural movement in everyone.

Today Arnaud transmits the art of awakening the movement of dance in everyone, through introspective practices and practices with a partner.
