Do Yoga in Paris, France
©Design + Know-How

Do Yoga in Paris (formerly Yogateau) is a publication and platform for people who view yoga as a practice and an art de vivre, something the French know a little something about.


  • Weekly recommendations of creative yoga and meditation workshops, events and retreats in Paris and the rest of France

  • Writing that takes a contemporary approach to ancient teachings, emphasizing knowledge, curiosity and—especially—pleasure over self-abnegation

  • Drill-downs on yoga subjects seldom broached in a one-hour asana class, inside peeks into yoga studio culture etc

We don’t take sides in the yoga authenticity debate. We prefer to underline yoga’s modernity and usefulness by showing how #parisyogalife is accessible to anyone, at any time, regardless of tradition or location.

Where does our #doyogainparis expertise come from?

Here I am demonstrating an alternative entry point into EPK2, aka Eka Pada Koundinyasana II

Do Yoga in Paris was founded by me, Martine Trélaün. I’m an art director, graphic/visual designer, editor and yoga teacher based in Paris, France.

About Martine

My design portfolio is here if you’d like to take a look but chances are you’re more interested in my yoga bonafides so voilà:

  • I’ve been doing yoga regularly for 20+ years

  • I’ve tried everything: Hatha, Bikram (don’t @ me, it was the 90s!), Ashtanga, Yin, Restorative, Vinyasa in all of its guises, Jivamukti, Kundalini, Iyengar, Forrest…

  • I studied meditation with Sally Kempton, Harshada Wagner and was initiated into Vedic Meditation by Nicho Plowman in 2016

  • I’m also a certified yoga teacher (200-hr and 100-hr in Anusara Yoga)

  • …and I’ve taught asana and philosophy in yoga studios in NYC and Paris

As far as Paris goes, I’ve known the city like the back of my hand since I was a 16 year old lycéenne, running from school to ballet classes to double features in the quartier latin.
