Aurélie Desmas is an artist, Kundalini yoga teacher, therapeutic art coach and interior designer from France, now based in Brooklyn, NY.
Her mission in life is to spread beauty and harmony wherever she goes whether it be through her yoga practice, her artistic pursuits, the interiors she creates or when helping clients to clear their mind by creating art.
Aurélie was born and grew up near the ocean, a boundless source of inspiration that enabled her to explore different ways of expressing herself artistically through music, visual arts, photography and writing.
After receiving a BA in Painting and an MA in Digital Photography in France, she moved to London to start a career in advertising. The job was stressful, however, and soon she started finding an outlet in yoga, which she began actively practicing in 2006. Her corporate career took her to New York three years later, where she continued practicing. She eventually decided to complete her Level One Kundalini Yoga teacher training in Brooklyn in 2018.
At the intersection between her artistic experiments and her yoga practice, she decided to explore art therapy and completed her therapeutic art coach certification in 2019.
A few years after moving to New York, she started longing for a career change and interior design showed itself as an obvious choice given her creative background. Intrigued by Asian cultures, she started her career change journey by getting certified as a Feng Shui practitioner and completing the Architecture and Interior Design certificate at Parsons School of Interior Design in New York.
