It was during his many trips to India that he discovered the Yoga tradition.

He stayed in ashrams of Ramana Maharshi (Tiruvannamalai), Swami Ramdas (Kahangad), Yogashala of Sri Patthabi Joys (Mysore), Sivanandashram (Rishikesh).

At Haridwar (in the Himalayas), he stays with Swami Vijayananda (the oldest disciple of Ma Anandamayee) and at Gangotri, at the the Krishnashram.

He has taught Hatha Yoga  (following in the Indian tradition) in Lyon and Grenoble, in personal and group classes, to students of all ages and all levels, and in Geneva, for the very famous “Innercityoga ” studio,  as well as for many companies (Baker&Mac Kenzie, Addax petroleum services, Webster University, etc) .

He is now living in Moscow, and is resident yoga teacher for the class “yoga in english” at the prestigious Yoga class studio, and in other places.

Sebastien gives regular seminars, in Annecy (France) and in Kazan (Russia) twice a year for the Yoga Conferency.

His approach combines the rigor of “Iyengar yoga“, the strength of the Desikachar technique, but is also firmly rooted in the tradition of traditional texts of Hatha Yoga (Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita, Shiva Samhita, Tantras and Upanishads) while adapting to Western lifestyle.
