3 Ways to Inspire your SummerPublished on
Have a break at the ocean, take a deep breath in the Alps, work out in the forest. Here are a few ideas on how to recharge your life in France this summer with healthy activities in 3 different natural and fun environments.
-On the shore
Raw food cooking, kung-fu, pole dancing, and yoga alternated with surf lessons is what’s on the agenda every day at the friendly Natural Surf School Lodge. Reinvigorate with a trip to this traditional farm in Seignosse in the heart of the Basque region on the Atlantic coast and next to Hossegor, the French mecca for surfing.
Plus: Exciting Surf & Detox weeks to discover raw food and how it can help you change your life (forever).
-Up in the mountains
Chocolate, Ayurveda and nutrition workshops, 40 classes given by 25 teachers, a Lululemon party (with DJ Taz Rashid from Boston mixing music and mantras), and a splendid view of the Mont-Blanc are all part of the third edition of the Chamonix Yoga Festival, July 8-10. With 4 well known guests attending (and approachable): Simon Park, Rebecca Vasquez, David Lurey and Swami Buddhi Prakash.
Plus: Qi gong, tai chi lessons, a healing room, conferences and a zen market are also part of the lineup!
-In the forest
The first eco-responsible festival in France that combines sports (climbing, beach soccer, petanque, beach volleyball, etc.), yoga and Pilates and good sounds (Etienne de Crécy and Arthur H are headliners among 27 performers) is a not to be missed summertime rendezvous in the magnificent Fontainebleau forest (southwest of Paris), July 2-3.
Plus: Every purchased ticket equals a planted tree; organic and locavore food trucks; conferences and movies!
