The invitation is made : come and discover the place and take an active part in its realization

I have seeded invitations on various platforms; The Osais of the Colibris, Passerelle Eco, the radical fairies and my contacts related to my yoga teaching

This summer the place is therefore open to discovery, practice and participation; there are no set dates, just come when its good for you, stay for a few days, a week or more.

The days often include: The practice of yoga morning and evening, participation in work in progress, participation in daily activities, moments of rest, relaxation and well-being, conviviality and sharing.

The financial contribution is based on generosity and personal circumstances, it is freely decided by each. It allows to do the food shopping, pay the bills and contribute to the existence of the place, an indicative amount is 20/30 euros per day, it is a freely decided donation that is made directly to the association on site or by bank transfer.

A freely decided contribution for yoga and well-being practices is possible directly to mark who accompanies these practices and activities on a daily basis.
