Drop In at Big Apple Yoga Paris

Big Apple Yoga, 20 Rue Dussoubs, 75002 Paris, France


Big Apple Yoga was born from a deep love of yoga and its ability to enrich our everyday lives. A New Yorker gone Parisian, Janelle wasn’t able to find a yoga studio in Paris with the vibe that she knew and loved from New York. From her passion and desire to share this dynamic and light-spirited approach with her French friends and community, came her dream to create one.

Big Apple Yoga’s founder Janelle Watters-Oliel has been an « Americaine » in Paris since she moved here in 2002. Practicing yoga for more than 15 years, she received her certification at Yoga Works in New York City. Her very physical dynamic yoga style grew to include yoga for children when her own children, Noa and Lorenzo, arrived in 2003 and 2007.

L’esprit de Big Apple Yoga est d’être avant tout un lieu de rencontre où les gens se retrouvent pour le plaisir de pratiquer le yoga, mais aussi un lieu où l’on se sent bien, un lieu de partage avec d’autres types de yogas, musiques, danses et toutes autres formes de pratiques permettant de s’épanouir et mieux se connaître. Le yoga peut être pratiqué par tout le monde: jeunes et vieux, femmes et hommes, débutants ou yogis confirmés!

Une pratique régulière du yoga est une expérience positive mais aussi une façon agréable de prendre soin de soi et de se sentir mieux chaque jour. Le yoga permet aussi de changer la façon de vivre les contraintes et les joies du quotidien.

Notre objectif est de vous faire pratiquer un yoga dynamique, relaxant mais aussi divertissant pour le corps comme pour l’esprit. Nous souhaitons rendre le yoga accessible à tous en travaillant avec chaque individu tels qu’ils sont.

Venez comme vous êtes !

Janelle Watters-Oliel Janelle discovered yoga in 1993 and immediately realized that her practice would have positive effects on her life and health. Since then, yoga has become a real passion, a force in her life before she decides to do her job. After graduating from New York University in 1998 (double degree in dramatic arts and French literature), Janelle traveled the world and began her career in New York in the wellness industry. It was from that moment, and noting the positive influence that a regular yoga practice could have in her life, that her passion took on its full meaning. In 2002, she moved to Paris, working in a large cosmetics company before following her true passion and teaching yoga. Following her Yoga Works certification in NYC, Janelle has followed the teachings of many yoga master teachers, including Elena Brower, Sianna Sherman, Bridget Kramer-Woods and many more. His classes are dynamic and energetic, adapted to all levels. They make it possible at the same time to become aware of one's body, to discover its limits while respecting it; but also to learn to use the riches of the "philosophy of yoga" in everyday life. Her yoga classes present spiritual themes, but always in a relaxed atmosphere, because for her laughter is the best remedy. Her greatest teachers were her husband and two amazing little yogis, Noa & Lorenzo.
