Delphine completed her foundation 200 hours teacher training under the direction of Hart Lazer in 2011. Later on, she chose to focus her practice following exclusively the Iyengar yoga system and got certified as Iyengar yoga teacher Introductory II level in 2015. Since then she studies every year at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India.
At the Nataraj yoga studio (Krama Yoga Cambodia NGO social enterprise ), Delphine teaches Iyengar yoga general class, and private sessions for students who need to alleviate specific health conditions, and pre-natal yoga. She also contributes to the programs of Krama Yoga NGO by providing training to Krama teachers and trauma sensitive yoga and in offering yoga classes to youth rescued form human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
In her classes, she encourages students to become aware of their alignment in asanas and their sensations, as a doorway to find their center, to quiet their mind, and to further explore their deeper personal layers. Simple yoga philosophy concepts are interwoven in the course of the class, as a way to enable students to translate their experience felt on the mat to every day life situations.
Throughout the month, classes are sequenced following the traditional Iyengar yoga sequencing as taught at the Iyengar institute in Pune, India:
1st quarter: standing asanas
2nd quarter: forward extensions and twists
3rd quarter: backward extensions (back bends)
4th quarter: restorative and pranayama (depending on level of the individual students)
And in addition, all classes include usual inversions, salamba sirsana (head stand) and salamba sarvangasana (shoulder stand) and/or variations adapted to the level of each student. Yoga philosophy concepts are interwoven in the asana practice when relevant.
