The teacher

Laurence Tricot, the teacher


Laurence 0882

 Mother of two kids (Vittoria and Massimo: Vi + Ma = Vima!), I discovered Yoga in 1998 and was trained as a Yoga teacher from 2000 to 2004 by Mr. Ajit Sarkar.

I teach Yoga since 2006.

I was fortunate to teach in various contexts (work council, sports association, community association, day care center, school) to adults, children, pregnant women and disabled persons.

I created Vimayoga in 2015 in Villeurbanne.

I'm trained to the DE GASQUET® Method and is certified in pre and post-natal yoga by the DE GASQUET INSTITUT®.

I’m giving back what I received with passion. Yoga is my life; it nourishes my life and is nourished by it.

I’m a member of the Fédération Yoga et Ayurveda (FYA) and of the Fédération Inter-enseignements de Hatha-Yoga (FIDHY).

Who is Ajit Sarkar ?


Ajit picture“I’m free, available and confident” is a sankalpa* that Ajit offered me. It follows me everywhere I go. I wish to give the same confidence and freedom as Ajit creates in everyone who comes by him.

Ajit was born in Bengal but was raised at Pondicherry in Sri Aurobindo’s ashram*.

Ajit has been living in Paris since the 60’s. He worked for the French Institute for Physical Education (INSEP) and teaches yoga to many future yoga teachers.

In 2007, he founded Vellai Thamarai, a large educational, social and cultural project in India.

Ajit is the Honorary President of the Fédération Yoga et Ayurveda (FYA).

* a sankalpa is a short and positive sentence mentally repeated during long relaxations and that is then left to “grow” inside one’s self.

* an ashram is a monastery, a spiritual place where disciples join around a teacher and where one can come for a retreat.
