Céline Vidal

Volcanologist, Yoga & Meditation Teacher, Painter, Energetic Therapist

Céline is a volcanologist and Lecturer of Geography at the University of Cambridge, UK.

She first discovered Hatha yoga and meditation in 2011 at the School of Yoga and Meditation in the lineage of Swami Janakananda. Naturally inclined to teach, she completed her Hatha yoga and meditation teacher with Yogacharya Saji, founder of the International Vasishta Yoga Research Foundation at Chinmaya Ashram, India. She has been teaching Hatha yoga since 2016.

From 2016, she studied non-duality philosophy (Advaita Vedanta) and self-inquiry with Suyin Lamour, Rupert Spira, and Francis Lucille. Céline's approach to yoga radically transformed when she met her teacher, Eric Baret, a master of Kashmir Shavaism trained by Jean Klein. In this non-dual tradition, postures are used to explore resistances in the body and the mind. The practice is simply an invitation to develop the ability to listen to the sensations in the body and discover the essence of all experiences. When we relax our attention into the space where sensations, emotions and thoughts appear, we realise the true nature of being. The identification to a separate self vanishes into to the ocean of Consciousness. This is where healing happens.

Céline trained in energy therapy with her teacher Suyin Lamour and graduated as Reiki Master in 2019.

Céline also paints visual experiences from meditative explorations.
