Paris is a dynamic city whose yoga culture is not only lively and welcoming, but growing. There is now a multitude of yoga studios, with more and more styles being added to the mix every day. Ashtanga and Vinyasa remain the most popular types of yoga, however other vibrant branches of the yoga tree are flowering such as Anusara, Acroyoga, Kundalini and Jivamukti. And with more and more internationally-known yoga teachers making Paris their home or a regular stop on their global tours, Paris is quickly developing into a magnificent yoga travel destination.

Yogateau knows its ass from its asana because it was created by a yogi for yogis! Martine Trélaün has been practicing yoga in the United States and France since 2001. She began her studies at Samasthiti Studio in Paris with Caroline Boulinguez and Gérald Disse (now co-founder of Ashtanga Yoga Paris), before returning to the US and practicing in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, New Haven, and New York City.
She is not only a student, but also a teacher who has trained with Zhenja La Rosa at Virayoga in Manhattan, and with John Friend in Paris. She is a lifelong student devoted to learning, and is indebted to all of her teachers for serving as such extraordinary examples of abhyasa. She offers gratitude to Zhenja, Eric Stoneberg, Sharon Kenney, Julie Dohrman, Tara Glazier, Stephanie Creaturo, Ross Rayburn, Heidi Sormaz and Jordan Mallah for lighting the way.
Martine’s yoga is woven throughout everything she does, from her graphic design practice to her printmaking, to her work as Shop editor at food52. She’s an American and French national who has spent a lifetime navigating French and American cultures, and she’s on a continuous quest to bridge those complementary forces with grace and flexibility.
