Program

During your stay at La Luciole you will be given daily yoga lessons with Corinne Payne. Your yoga classes will be with a maximum of ten people, conducted in a beautiful and peaceful Mediterranean setting to calm your senses and reset your energies. Corinne’s practice is Hatha yoga, inspired by Anusara principles of alignment and energy, with the aim to move the body integrally, gently and safely, strengthen, stretch, and deepen your focus and clarity.

You will begin by bringing your awareness to your breath, being mindful of the present moment. Then, you will move through gentle warm up asanas to sun salutations, followed by strengthening and balancing poses, and then wind down with some deeper stretches to increase flexibility.

And finally, an assimilation time to allow the body and mind to refresh and regenerate with a focus on relaxation. You will end the yoga session with a guided Shavasana for deep relaxation, releasing stress and tension, improving concentration and insomnia, and stimulating blood circulation.

Corinne can also teaches Yin yoga on request, a practice that cultivates a deep sense of awareness through the release of mind and body stress.
