SuryaSoul Founders: Philippe Beaufour and Sabine Zweig: who are they?
Sabine is born in South Germany and live since her birth with a chronic lymphatic condition that has required her to spend quite some time in hospitals and clinics for operations or treatments .
Dancing has become a healing journey for her since then. After training for years in various techniques she found Nia and Soul Motion as 2 complementary modalities from fitness to conscious movement .
Beside her architecture and designer carrier she first created the Body-Mind-Fusion platform (later Niamaste)together with Philippe Beaufour her husband .
Philippe, born in France, traveled to India when he was 28 years old to start a new life as resident of Auroville, the international project on human unity created in 1968. The business school degree and the real estate business in Paris for 6 years had not fulfilled his life so far.
Trained in Taoist martial arts, his dream was to relate these movement forms to music. Discovering Nia and Soul Motion thanks to Sabine, he realized that his life mission was to connect people to their body and soul through conscious movement and lifestyle.
They have organized their life between Auroville, India and Hamburg,Germany creating workshops, events and holistic retreats based on the study and experience of the chakra system, a central element of both yoga and tao philosophy.
They have become internationally recognized for their inspirational lifestyle and spirit, shared in each of the class, workshop, event, retreat, training they have taught since 2004.
Traveling each year between Europe, Asia and the USA, they have developed of network of friends, teachers, promoters, coordinators and producers that supports their nomadic way of life.
Sharing their experience and wisdom has become the intention and purpose of their evolution.
2016 has been the year of the birth of their own Teacher Training and Class formats : SuryaSoul® when Yoga becomes a DanceOfLife.
