Flowering valleys, softwood forests, alpine passes, Monal mountain village, mountain lakes, refuges, sumptuous panoramas on summits and glaciers: here the mountain reveals all its assets to seduce you! It is largely on these trails of Haute-Tarentaise in Savoie that I discovered the main lines of the conscious walk that we will share together.

The hikes take place in the most favorable places of an area dear to my heart and will surprise you with its beauty. A week where all the ingredients are together for a maximum resoursing of body and mind.

During the week of August, Marie-Anne Queniart will teach interested people how to use a cardiofrequencemeter to optimize the effort. Those wishing to benefit from his teaching should have a personal cardiofrequencemeter.

Marie-Anne Queniart is a trainer and sports health sport educator at the French Federation of Physical Education and Voluntary Gymnastics. Specialized in active and full consciousness walk, she combines the technique of active walking with individual management of the effort based on the potential of each. She is passionate about self-awareness and respect for the physical integrity of everyone in a search for well-being and openness in the present moment. Our meeting during a trekking in the Himalayas has permited her to enrich his skills by associating his own approach of walking, in the softness and lightness inspired by full consciousness walk.

Her positive approach to practice brings the stimulating and joyful energy that gives back every moment its vital power, in the simplicity and richness of sharing, in the welcome and openness to what is, a gift of life, of the earth and the universe.
