Helen Smith – Our Yoga Teacher Extraordinaire

My first experience of yoga was in my thirties. A mother of two young boys, juggling my job as an infant teacher with looking after my sons and being a supportive wife to my husband, a military pilot who spent much time away from home. As is the case with most people balancing work and family life, my stress levels were high. A friend suggested that I try yoga, I had always been physically fit, and I thought that it would be a good stretch. After a couple of sessions I was hooked and realised that a yoga class was better at relaxing me than my evening glass of wine! I attended these Hatha yoga classes for ten years, slowly discovering that the yoga was not only keeping me physically fit, but also having a profound effect on my mind. Eventually, I realised that I needed to follow my heart, I left my teaching job and signed up for a Hatha yoga teacher training course in Egypt. This was a life changing experience as it not only gave me all the necessary theory, but involved living for a week in the desert with a Bedoin tribe, a very humbling experience that taught me so much about myself.

On my return I started teaching yoga to children, some with special needs, teenagers, and adults. I also worked closely with some clients who had undergone chemotherapy, and other debilitating conditions. In 2016 my husband retired and we came to live in France. I have spent my time here both teaching, and extending my knowledge through workshops in meditation I have also qualified as a reiki practitioner. I have seen how yoga can benefit everyone on such different levels, it can just be a good stretch, or on a deeper level, a powerful tool to aid you physically and mentally on your life’s journey. The beautiful setting of Maison de Lunel is an ideal location for practicing yoga.

During your time here, you will be completely removed from the stresses and strains of everyday life, and have a chance to explore the benefits that yoga and a good diet can have on your body. the yoga sessions will use a combination of poses and stretches to ensure that the body is opened and physically stress free. You will be introduced to breathing techniques that will enable you to increase the oxygen levels in the body, as well as those that help the body and mind to relax. We will practice simple meditation and mindfulness and explore the effect that this has on us, bringing together the body and the mind. Moreover, you will be able to take these techniques away with you, as a means of controlling stress in your day to day life.

Sophie Pouly

Sophie Pouly – Our Amazing Massage Therapist

Hello, I am Sophie and I am very happy to be part of this beautiful adventure offered by Maison de Lunel. I started massaging ten years ago, following a 10-day silent meditation retreat. This experience allowed me to refine my sensibility to the world in general. At the same time, I also started working with clay as a ceramist. It’s a connection to nature and the elements that teaches and grounds me a lot. I naturally began to massage people around me intuitively by simply going to the parts of the body that called me. Often, it is by listening to my own sensations that I know what the person needs.

To build and develop on my intuitive massage practice I travelled to Laos and spent two months learning Thai massage with 7 teachers from all over the world. This quite unique opportunity allowed me to discover ancestral massage techniques and to deepen my personal practice.

In my own experience, massage as a shared meditation and a dance with the rhythm of your breathing.

During the retreat, I offer two types of massages practiced on the ground with a massage futon:

Energetic & intuitive oil massage
Each massage is unique, listening to your body and your needs.
My gestures are based on your breathing, they are soft and deep and they naturally go to the parts of your body calling me, from head to toes.

Thaï Yoga Massage
From head to toe, this massage allows you to relax and stimulate the body in depth by using pressures, stretches and twists, following body energy lines.
