Another yoga and climbing course? Yes and no.

This one is different, because the 2 activities proposed are lived continuously. Indeed, the yoga teacher is also a climber, and concerning climbing, I also practice yoga.
Moreover, as much in the one or the other of the practices, the intention is identical: to work the most right movement possible. The one that can be achieved with little or no effort, the one that brings out the intense joy in us. The one that is beautiful, because it comes from the heart.
How do we do it? On the mat, by a conscious, repeated and assiduous practice, filled with softness and self-respect. And on the cliff, by the exceptional contribution of the Caruso method in this discipline that is climbing. Thus, one in complement of the other, these two forms of movement will support you in the emergence of the beautiful.

During these 4 days in Freissinières in the south of the Ecrins massif, you will have an intensive practice of climbing and yoga, but also a time for yourself, to go towards your center. Which is essential in climbing, as in life.

This workshop, open to all, without any pre-requisite level (in climbing or yoga), is intended for anyone wishing to approach climbing as a practice of well-being, where movement is as important as performance. The latter also evolves according to the progress in the practice!


  • Discover and practice yoga.
  • Develop flexibility, relaxation and centering for climbing.
  • Experience 4 days of deep relaxation in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes.
  • Approach climbing from the perspective of the body and its immense potential.

I offer a similar course in climbing using the Caruso method and yoga in Annecy, as well as a discovery day 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 find your way on the rock.
