Jeanne

Jeanne’s approach to teaching has always taken into consideration the individuals needs, recognizing the places in the body that need more support or need to let go. Her studies have included Restorative, Therapeutic and Thai Yoga Massage which has also helped to improve her  intuitive touch.

There is a belief that the body knows how to heal itself, over time we become more disconnected and lose our ability to understand what it is that we need to heal, if we can reintroduce ourselves to the body we can start to listen with more intention and begin to understand. Traditionally the practice was given to an individual much like a prescription, tailor made to create more balance, together we will create a unique experience to reconnect and start to heal.

Availabilities:

  • Monday: 10am – 4pm
  • Tuesday: 10am – 4pm
  • Thursday: 10am – 4pm

Please note that we require 48 hours notice prior to the desired private session booking. The teacher will send you a booking confirmation email based on the information that you provide below.

Meditation with Pierre-Vincent

Thursdays from 7:30pm – 8:45pm

« Mindfulness is not a tool, it’s a path » – Thich Nhat Hanh

 Every evening will be divided between talks about the teachings, and practice. We will discover some of the main teachings, like the 4 noble truths, the eightfold path and the brahma viharas. We will then get a sense of what they mean through our own experience, practicing in many different ways. Some home-exercises will also be suggested as a way to foster and bring continuity to the practice. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Cost: By donation
