About Yoga Sangi

Come and join me for a yoga class or an Ayurvedic consultation.

Who am I?

My name is Gowri Françoise Braive.

At the end of my studies, I started working abroad and this resulted in a long journey of 19 years in Europe, America from North to South, Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.

At 23, I was introduced to yoga in Montreal. After which, I continued to join classes of different traditions depending on the country where I lived.

Subsequent to a series of events in 2009, I decided at the age of 30 to go and learn yoga in immersion in India where I stayed for 7 years in all. I firstly did two yoga teacher trainings, over 3 years, with the Indian School of Breathing and the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. Then I chose to follow the training of the Isha Hatha School of Yoga, which is the tradition of yoga I teach today.

The foundations of Ayurveda and Yoga are based on very similar sources and knowledge in India. This medicine has always fascinated me and I was able to learn the basics during my stay in Tamil Nadu. Therefore, I decided in 2022 to embark on the great adventure of studying this science of life in addition to yoga.

I am currently undergoing a 4 year training with the International School of Ayurveda in Brussels, Belgium.
