    "I took the Celine Miconnet Green Yoga training a year ago. I appreciated the Iyengar rigor and the energy dimension. Celine is observant of the posture details and she is doing exceptionally well in correcting, as well as explaining and finding solutions to all the questions. She is really attentive to everyone needs and adapts to all different kinds of knowledge. One of her goals is to understand us and to help us become a good yoga instructor. She helps us design a complete course with precision and fluidity. She has helped me a lot, and she is really exceptional at both levels technically, open to all the energy that touches in human terms. I am so proud to have had my Yoga instructor diploma with her. It was really a great experience.", edited
