Program

Practicing Bikram yoga in France

In 6 days, you have 14 yoga classes (10 classes from July-August) to choose from Hot Yoga, Bikram, Yin, Vinyasa and Pilates. All classes are optional however Feliz Esprit recommends that you try to do as many as you can. The class is designed for all levels ranging from first time student to advanced practitioners. The sequence of 26 postures was scientifically designed to systematically and progressively work every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, organ and gland. Moving fresh oxygenated blood to every cell of the body. This series is unique as it is the sequence of the stretching and compression postures that massage all internal organs, flushing out the cardiovascular system and stimulating the endocrine and nervous systems, thereby releasing and deficient hormones and enzymes.

Instructors

Naomi always had a keen interest in eastern philosophy and yoga and has explored many forms of yoga, meditation and alternative healing therapies from a very early age. In 2005, a New Years resolution to give up smoking triggered the desire to try Bikram Yoga and her life took a joyful twist. After completing the Bikram yoga teacher training with Bikram Choudhury, under the guidance of Michele Pernetta and Mark Oram, she has taught this incredible yoga in Chile, California, Norway, Vannes. It was a dream to create a beautiful centre where people can relax, improve their well being.
