This day of wellness will take place in the beautiful Abbaye de Fontaine-André, located above Lake Neuchâtel with a lovely view over the lake and Alps. The 12th century abbey is on the property of an organic farm. We will spend the day in this beautifully tranquil setting practicing yoga, meditation and discussing how to apply these teachings to our daily lives.
Our day will start out with an introduction to walking meditation, followed by a walking meditation practice along the “Le Chemin Spirituel.” We will then take a break for tea and organic goodies. After the break we will do a one hour dynamic practice of yoga, followed by seated meditation to bring more stillness to the thinking mind. Afterwards, we will discuss practical techniques to develop balance, flexibility and strength in the body and the mind.
We will then enjoy a delicious organic lunch (made with the produce grown on the property). We will have a short session in the afternoon where we will discuss tools for living our yoga and meditation practice and bringing more awareness into our daily lives.
There is an option for massage in the afternoon from an on-site massage therapist.
This workshop is taught in English. Yoga experience is not necessary.
