In the ancient philosophies of yoga and qigong, the commonalities are rich - using the body and breath to clear the mind, build mental and physical strength, command one's emotions, reconnect to one's sense of self, and be reminded that we are a community with each other and the world we live in.
As part of this week in the inspiring mountains of Moclin, Southern Spain, time will be taken to connect with nature and rediscover our own relationships with the beauty of the surrounding landscapes.
Please join Patrick and me for a series of workshops on the theme of opening your heart. There will be movement classes, meditation sessions, talking circles, and the chance to immerse yourself in the wondrous mountains of the Aosta valley. The workshops will be held in the beautiful ski resort of Champoluc. Details of each workshop, location and prices will be published soon. Please let me know if you want to be informed specifically.
“Stability is not autopilot.” Change is happening all the time. Life is never static. We are always moving from one state of being into another state of being. We all manage change differently. In this class, we will explore various techniques to maintain awareness and mindful attention so you can discover what might help you manage change better. There will be very gentle moment and some seated, lying and walking meditation.
This is the third and final part of the workshop series. To join us, click here.
“Soaring into life.” Have you tried to light a fire in the rain? Or start a car with a flat battery? Impossible. In this class, we explore ways to generate energy from a space of stillness. Together, we will discover your optimal rhythm, and try different ways to stimulate momentum and raise energy levels through a mix of gentle and dynamic movement.
This is the second in the series of three workshops. To join us, click here.
“Hero” to “Zero” - a series of workshops
Living modern lives, we become extremely good at multi-tasking. We celebrate our ability to achieve more and more. We tax our senses, our mind, our body and our heart. We push ourselves to the limit and we celebrate breaking boundaries. We become so focussed on getting somewhere that we forget to pay attention to where we are. We are very outwardly focussed and neglect our internal world. Then suddenly we drop, we crash or we burnout. This cycle is natural and expected. What makes the difference is how we move between these two ends of the spectrum. In these three workshops, we will work through movements and practices that help you find your optimal rhythm and path to manage these transitions in your life. Whether you feel you need help slowing down, or if you need a push to get going, these workshops will be a fun, interactive and accessible way to explore how you move between Hero and Zero.
“A smooth landing” In this class, we will move through different dynamic sequences to clear stagnation, stress and tiredness, preparing the body to genuinely rest. The second half of the class will be still and restorative, where we take our time to observe how we individually respond to the invitation to slow down, to rest, to be silent.

Please join me to celebrate magical springtime at La Scellerie. The air hums with life, there are miles and miles of spectacular sand dunes and beaches to explore.

Bring your tent, find a spot in our woodland, orchard or gardens, and make it your cosy spot for the week. In the main house, there is the studio, dining room, kitchen, shower rooms and toilets. Each day, there will be 4 hours of qigong, yoga and guided meditation practice. Three meals will be provided each day, catering for all dietary requirements.
