Tummo – Anne Laurençon-Loviton and Philippe Djoharikian
This shared session will offer you invaluable details for understanding and making fully intelligible this practice inherent to yoga, which we call Toumo or Tapas through the cold. We will explain not only the technical but also the spiritual aspects of this practice.
Anne Laurençon Loviton : Anne has a doctorate in life sciences. She works for the CNRS, the French scientific research institute. She studies experimental questions on small animals, worms and flies. The themes she works on are related to genome dynamics, sensory mechanisms, lifespan and aging. Anne Laurençon does not claim to know the secrets of the subjects she studies. Rather, she defines herself as a woman, a mother… reassuring (her yoga master says so!). She embarked on a quest to find out who she really is in 2007, and this path is reflected in every aspect of her life, including yoga. Anne is a yoga teacher, particularly Toumo yoga, trained at the Maurice Daubard Institute.
Philippe Djoharikian has been a committed yogi for over 35 years: “I practised Toumo with Maurice Daubard for over 20 years and met Himalayan yogis in Nepal, Tibet and India who are masters in the art of cold yoga. I’ve been practising every day and constantly imbibing the knowledge of all my European yogi friends for decades and remain an eternal traveller with the Indian masters”.
