Carol Issa is both an advanced Jivamukti and Kundalini Yoga teacher, she was born and raised in Paris. Carol has launched Jivamukti Yoga in Paris and has the honor to serve as a mentor at the Jivamukti Teacher Training Program, as well at Kundalini teacher training.
Yoga came into her life as a natural unfolding of her personal researchs and intitiations in Art, dance, philosophy, psychology, shamanism, energetical healing, music, martial arts…
She studied at Beaux arts and had a master from les Arts déco. She also studied Philosophy (and worked her thesis on : religions et mystism/ spirituality) « The ways to Awakening. The Buddha Self.» (non religious). She starts working as an Art Director in Publicis. After 7 years, she travels to New York City where her love story with the Jivamukti satsang starts, under the guidance of her beloved teachers, Sharon Gannon et David Life.
Out of all her continus studies and learnings and life experiences, her classes are physically challenging, flowing into creative sequences and mentaly and emotionally uplifting. Carol teaches in many big parisian studios as well workshops, events and retreats in Paris and abroad. She’s known for her open heart, sincerity and sense of humour. Carol also offers therapeutical healing transformational body work treatments and coaching/ guidance in Paris and abroad.
New York Times : One of my favorite classes is an energetic session with an infectiously joyful teacher named Carol. She leads the class in French — “Inspirez … expirez!” — but who, inevitably, trained in New York, cradle of Jivamukti. Yoga in France, at least the yoga I’ve found, is inescapably American.
