My name is Thibault [:tibo]. I come from south of France but I grew up here and there.

Hyperactive kid, I already had a hard time staying still and dealing with my feelings. My parents enrolled me in gymnastics, which was my first experience of human expression : body and feelings at work together.

I continued with ballet and enrolled in a professional children school, before being lucky enough to be scouted for amazing international ballet schools.

I landed at the Hamburg Ballet School, and after 2 years I joined the Finnish National Ballet for 5 years.

I first got in touch with yoga in 2013, which is when I started my meditation. I used it to release the stress I had to deal with as a high performance athlete / artist.  It is only later in 2017 that I attended my first yoga class, following the work of a choregrapher I had just worked with.

I have been a solo artist since 2018, which is when I started choreographing, but my career took a turn in 2019. I was looking into expanding my skills as an artist and was seeking to get closer to my audiences.

The coaching dimension was very much present, and it felt nevessary to educate myself with personal training, coming as a complementary perspective as a choreographer to help people get in touch with their bodies. I graduated from the Fysioline Academy of Finland as a Personal Trainer and welness coach in january 2020. 

The pandemic started, and I realised that "the physical" was certainly not the principal component of our happiness. So I decided to deepen my knowledge and I enrolled in university to learn more about this beautiful tools that are for us to explore throughout this life : body, mind and emotions.

September 2020, I was accepted into the bachelor of exercice science programme at Montpellier's University, majoring in health, human physiology and psychology. Still, it left me with a deep feeling of hunger, a void, that wasn't filled by any knowledge.

Summer 2021, I attended my first yoga teacher training at Green Yoga International, which changed my life. Finally, information and experience came together to form knowledge, and though I had been coaching people for a while, it finally felt like I was "coming home". Mindfulness came along, and I realised that I had all tools that are the fundamentals of life : help people move, create and reboot.

Because learning is a life long process, I continue to do so and I now study human behaviors and sports psychology, to implement it in my practice as a physical and mental coach.

I continue my artistic career for I am a restless soul and restore my energy with dance.

Get in touch with me to learn more, and eventually, discover who you truly are.
