Camille Gicquel

Director, Yoga Alliance Europe

Camille Gicquel is the PR Director for Yoga Alliance Europe News and Chairperson, Yoga Alliance International, France Camille was born in the West of France and got 1introduced to Yoga thanks to her Mom, an experienced practitioner, who convinced her to attend a class of Hatha yoga thinking that it may help channelize her energy and anxious nature, and it was a revelation! However, after studying a diversity of fields and working in a lot of others, something was still missing in her life for her to be truly happy. Her love for travelling and her thirst for discoveries, encounters and new experiences finally took her to India, the ancestral place of traditional yoga. Her encounter with Swami Vidyanand and his system of Transformational Hatha Yoga have then totally convinced her that she wanted to live her life following the path of Yoga. Camille is a Yoga Alliance International Certified Yoga Teacher for 500 hours level, Master in Transformational Yoga and Meditation. She studied under the guidance of Swami Vidyanand in New Delhi and Auroville. She is also the Chair Person of Yoga Alliance International France and in charge of SriMa School branch near Auroville.
