There is no level required here: the invitation during those yoga sessions is to mainly "listen" and "observe" the feeling of the moment, both physically and mentally. So either you have been practicing for a long time or not, it doesn't matter. We welcome people who have been practicing for a while, or beginners, and it all work out very fine.

Benoit has been inspired, and still is, by a French spiritual teacher named Jean Klein, who has transmitted his own experience of yoga to many disciple, with whom he continues to learn more and more deeply each time he manages to attend their workshops. This type of yoga is also known as Yoga du Cachemire. It is a very meditative yoga which allow us to get deeper and deeper into some subtle feelings,both physically but also energetically, to do so, we have to first manage to put that little voice of ours that constantly make comments, criticism, judgment... into observation and let ourselves become totally open to the here and now, to the proposition of the moment, to what is happening in our own body and our own mind, and let it be, by a simple, but profound, observation. To make it short, the Yoga he likes to share is of the Being, not of the Doing.
