Description

During these 3 days, you will discover the many similarities between climbing taught through the Caruso method and yoga.

The breathing techniques and movements learned during yoga sessions will allow you to progress more calmly on the climbing routes by listening to your body. Climbing and yoga are two ways, rich in sensations and revelations, very useful to find your balance, as well in the life as on the cliffs of the Annecy Mont Blanc area in Haute-Savoie.

During this yoga and climbing workshop, you will practice twice a day yoga sessions and you will discover or deepen the techniques of climbing. Climbing is approached via a unique teaching method in France, based on the Caruso method (of Italian origin), of which I am the only trainer in France to date.

This exceptional and infinitely rich approach will provide you with tools that can be reproduced in climbing. It is the only approach that allows you to learn climbing in an educational way, based on principles of physics, geometry, logic of movement and yoga! Thanks to it, you will understand why this or that gesture is easier, less energy consuming and allows you to progress. It goes far beyond the usual "put your foot here and push it" advice. You will have an answer to the why of almost every situation.

It will allow you to find the correctness in each climbing gesture and to move towards pleasure climbing, which brings a feeling of deep joy when the movement is done with grace.

Important: The 4-day courses have an additional day identical to D2. The price is 375€.

I offer similar courses of climbing using the Caruso method and yoga in Freissinières in the Hautes-Alpes and in Italy in the Aosta valley, as well as a day of discovery of the Caruso method applied to climbing in Haute-Savoie. If you'd like to improve your climbing skills, I can also recommend this course on overcoming the fear of falling while climbing, as well as a day in Haute-Savoie to approach climbing in a different way.
