Description

2021 is a special year, without ski lifts!

You have to adapt your practices and that's why I'm offering you an outing specially designed for you, who might want to start ski touring?
The activity consists of a 5-hour module, to be done in a group of 4 or 5 people.
The initiation is made "differently": smoothly, effortlessly, in a zen way.

 

Ski touring is available in many ways, and everyone can find the one that suits his/her aspirations: the commercial terms refer to "freeride", "free rando", "ski mountaineering", ...

The approach proposed here is far from categorizations and classifications of style! It adapts to all because it is lived mainly from the inside, it starts from tour feelings. And everyone, whether runner, epicurean, young or old is able to experience it. It's just a matter of sliding - both uphill and downhill - as a style exercise aimed at finding the right fit, the right balance. To have the consciousness of the movement that is born without effort when the consciousness is there, present with every gesture, movement and even breaths. By many small tips, these simple things, so simple that they seem useless, or that make you say "but it's stupid! Why I did not think before?", You will have the means to see another way of living your sport.

Advantages? Less fatigue, more pleasure, a calming mind, less stress, less injuries, better effort management, a shift from sport-stomping to sport-healing, a deeper connection and therefore more nourishing with the Earth.

The tools? The learning is based on the Caruso method, of which I am a teacher, on the conscious and Afghan walk of the Walking School, on the Yoga I practice, and on my own experience.

The outing takes place in Haute-Savoie, around the Grand-Bornand, La Clusaz or the Semnoz.
