Carol Issa

Carol Issa is both an advanced Jivamukti and Kundalini Yoga teacher. She was born and raised in Paris. Carol has launched Jivamukti Yoga in Paris and has the honor to serve as a mentor at the Jivamukti Teacher Training Program. Yoga came into her life as a natural unfolding of her personal research and initiations into art, dance, philosophy, psychology, shamanism, energetic healing, music, and martial arts. She studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Carol also studied Philosophy (and worked on her thesis: Religions et Mysticism/Spirituality) «The ways to Awakening. The Buddha Self.» (non religious). She started working as an Art Director at Publicis, and after 7 years, she traveled to New York City where her love story with the Jivamukti satsang starts, under the guidance of her beloved teachers, Sharon Gannon et David Life. Out of all her continus studies and learnings and life experiences, her classes are physically challenging, flowing into creative sequences as well as as mental and emotional uplifting. Carol teaches in many big Parisian studios, and regularly organizes workshops, events and retreats in Paris and abroad. She is known for her open heart, sincerity and sense of humour. Carol also offers therapeutical healing transformational body work treatments and coaching/guidance in Paris and abroad. New York Times : « One of my favorite classes is an energetic session with an infectiously joyful teacher named Carol. She leads the class in French — “Inspirez … expirez!” — but who, inevitably, trained in New York, cradle of Jivamukti. Yoga in France, at least the yoga I’ve found, is inescapably American. »
