Then he began his yoga asana practice with Bernadette Pajot, a close disciple of TKV Desikachar and head of the “Trois Fontaines“ association in Vendee, France. He then began practising Sivananda yoga in Rishikesh and spent 14 years in India, studying with different teachers of the same tradition before completing his Sivananda teacher training in California in 1995. Francois spent five years of training as a forest monk at Ubon Ratchathani under the spiritual guidance of Achaan Cha, a vipassana meditation master in the Buddhist forest monk tradition of Thailand.
