Michelle Jacobi, ERYT-500, founded the Centre de Yoga du Marais in 2001 when her growing number of prenatal students and corporate clients-turned yogis requested more lessons and a larger place to practice. Michelle created the space in honor of her yoga sangha in New York. The “Yoga Marais” grew to offering day and evening classes to suit all levels of practice, a program for new Moms and Babies, a program for Yoga for Kids as well as adapted classes for Seniors and those requiring a gentle practice. Consequently yoga workshops from international teachers and yoga summer retreats became popular requests and were added to the curriculum . The Yoga Centre in the historic district of the Marais has attracted a lively and spirited group of teachers, passionate about spreading the benefits of Some of the teachers at the centre have been trained by the Centre de Yoga du Marais’ Teacher Training program, Michelle’s desire to pass on the gifts from her teachers.

A very experienced teacher

Great teacher, really progressed

I lived in Paris for three years and in that time attended Michelle's classes at Centre de Yoga du Maris. A good yoga teacher can be hard to come by, I'm still searching in my new home city!; Michelle gives very good and clear instruction (in French and English) and keeps the class light and fun, as well as challenging. I found with Michelle that I slowed down my practice and this allowed me to take in more and get more out of it.


I learned to be more patient with myself through Michelle's instruction and guidance, and through this my appreciation and understanding of yoga, and yoga for me importantly, was greatly enriched and improved.

There's a friendly and open atmosphere at the Centre thanks to Michelle's approach, with many loyal clients returning again and again, which is a good sign as well as being nice to share the practice with familiar faces.
