Set in a beautiful park, with private access to Sète beach, Le Lazaret is a bespoke centre for holidays, courses and retreats. Everything you need is onsite (restaurant, bar, gym, bedrooms, wifi) leaving you free to relax and soak up the setting amongst the mediterranean palms, the sound of the waves and, of course, the singing, yoga and massage, which will take place inside, outside in the grounds or on the beach, depending on the weather.

THE COURSE

The days will be spent doing yoga workshops (focusing on the breath, breathing exercises and yoga postures) and singing workshops using and discovering songs in a variety of genres (Gospel, African, Pop, Blues). Each participant will receive a full-body massage under the expert hands of Cécile, our trained and experienced masseuse.

Delicious meal after a hard day ;-)

OUR STORY

INSPIRE is a story of friendship, meeting and adventure. Antje (from Germany) and Ruth from the UK met 17 years ago in a musicology lecture as students in Montpellier, each of them on their voyage of discovery abroad. Several years later, Antje moved to Sète and met Cécile (massage), through their children and around their interest in the body. Then the idea and the desire came together: Yoga + Singing + Massage. We must do something together! Our three disciplines are intimately connected: they are based on the breath, engaging the body (and voice) and mental awareness. INSPIRE is about the meeting between our internal worlds and the external world.

Take a big leap and come with us on our next voyage of discovery. You will get to know yourself better, you will laugh, you will relax and leave….INSPIRED!

 

TEACHER BIOGRAPHIES

Ruth Routledge SINGING

I studied music, voice and choral direction at The University of Birmingham as well as in Montpellier and Lyon, France. For 11 years I have specialised in ensemble work, directing choirs of all different levels, from beginners to professionals in London. It is in working with group dynamics and individual confidence that I focus my work, resulting in a tighter and happier ensemble. I always take care to create a warm and supportive environment so that everyone is encouraged and faciliated to achieve more than they had ever thought possible, in a spirit of joy and humour. ruthroutledgemusic.com  pramchorus.com pindropvox.com

Antje Brocksieper YOGA

After practising dance for many years I discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga following the practice of Shri K Pattabhi Jois in 2004, and I am a student of Arnaud Kancel in Montpellier. This dynamic practise, carried by the breath, allies power and fluidity, taking you on a path of self-discovery. It is a revelation : no matter how you are feeling physically, mentally or emotionally, the practise enables you to find an inner balance, bringing better understanding and acceptance of ones body and spirit; its limits and a more subtle sensitivity to oneself and others. It is a complete practise and also a powerful means for transformation and calming the mind. It is this expérience that I want to share.  I love teaching and pay particular attention to adapt to each individual and their particular movements to help them on the path to increased self-awareness.

Cécile Juteau MASSAGE

Trained as an educator and storyteller, I have returned to massage after 15 years. This tool allows me to enter into relation with and to accompany people who wish to hear what their body is telling them. I have diversified my techniques starting with Californian and "Amma" massage. Discovery of the body is unlimited, which is why I continue learning, studying reflexology in Paris at the RTTFA to deepen my approach. I combine a gentle and firm touch, using both smooth and strong movements, anchored and carried by what I feel in the moment, with the aim of creating a space where you can experience your body and simply be in the here and now.
