Philippe Beaufour, French, 46 years old, after academic studies in ESG High Business School of Paris and 5 years intensive practice and studies of chinese martial arts with master Tran Kinh leading him to receive his black belts , started his professional life as corporate real estate broker in Paris. After 6 years in the speculative years of the Parisian boom and bust, he went through a personal crisis that nothing could solve except a deep decision to change lifestyle, continent and life orientation. He got the intuition to settle in the international experimental city of the future Auroville in South India where he has lived for 18 years as an Aurovilian. The practice of the “yoga of life”, conscious living and social experiment led him to unfold and unveil all the tools he needed to realize his dreams and deepest desires until he eventually met his life partner Sabine Zweig, dancer architect and designer. Together with her, he is leading a nomadic conscious lifestyle in Asia, Europe and the USA, teaching worldwide and giving workshops and retreats in the fields of conscious movement (Nia, Beats of Soul, Chakra Awakening...) and life transformation.
