2-Day Seminar 9 & 10 mars, 2019

Connecting the tissue of body, mind and being with Joanne Avison ( IAYT , E-YRT500, MSS )

2-Day Seminar : March 9 &10 , 2019

( Ce séminaire sera enseigné en anglais et traduit en français ! )

This practical course will leave you clear as to how and why fascia is so important to you, personally, as a human being and professionally as a Yoga, Pilates or movement teacher.

Fascia is the fundamental fabric of your living, animated form.

When you understand the way it is organized, the essentials of its architecture , its connections and disconnections, you will be able to understand some of the mysteries of living bodies and guiding other bodies to help them move better.

This course is about 50% practical , with additional take-home information for reference and is designed for any type of movement teacher. Some people have a very scientific mind, others entirely practical, others more thoughtful and some are just curious about movement and love Yoga and Pilates for its versatility and range .

For many teaching movement is the result of resolving issues in their own lives or injuries they experienced and for many , studying anatomy can be the « boring base-line » that has to be crossed, to tick the « qualified box » .

What if it is thrilling and exciting because it changes the way you feel ? What if you could become so fascinated by what you already sense makes sense , that you discover what you are already doing has a body wisdom of its own ? What if that is the key ? This workshop is fun and practical and you will leave knowing a lot more about how you formed, how you feel your way in the world and why it matters…in your body’s language.

  • fascia as the tensional network of connective tissues; the fabric of the human form. Research into fascia is revealing a whole new context for understanding the human body both at rest and in motion.

  • bridging the divide between the application of classical anatomy and real-life experiences of practicing and teaching movement.

  • examining recent research and the paradigm shift from the classical anatomy of the musculoskeletal system to the new perspective the fascia provides.“BioTensegrity is an emerging context for biomotional integrity. That is – how we move the way we do. Understanding the fascia and the fabric of our form is relatively meaningless, without the architectural organisation of that fabric, explaining how it permits movement and indeed manages the movement forces we move (that move us). We are formed under tension; pre-stressed or pre-stiffened – but what does that mean to us as movement teachers or manual therapists? What are the implications of tensional forces through the matrix of our living, animated form? The fascia is a force transmission system. BioTensegrity offers a very compelling paradigm that makes sense of its many structures and functions and multifaceted assets.“

Spiraling from the Arms:

Hanging, Hand Sequences and Backbends

Many of us don’t leverage the spirals of the upper quarter -- aside from rotation of certain fingers in texting. This workshop explores the spirals and 3D movement within the structural elements of the trunk, arms and neck via the fascia as the great connector and the basis of tensegrity. Through useful weight-bearing hand sequences and hanging motions we can restore natural movement patterns and enhance motor control. Whether you or your clients are exceptionally stiff or hypermobile, you will experience increases in strength and mobility that also improve joint integrity and stability. Learn how these elements translate into backbends and better spinal motion, postural control and greater freedom in the body. Discover the secret to more fluid, integrated movement!

Note: Spiraling from the Arms is more challenging in the movements and not necessarily appropriate for those with osteoporosis.

Insights into Yoga Asanas - Traditional applications of yoga postures

Friday April 13th , 2018

2-6pm : 75€

The enchantment of Yoga is not confined to mere attainment of mind boggling levels of physical fitness. Quite oblivious to most, Asanas transcends to its highest potential when body syncs with the mind, raising one’s awareness to a higher meditative bliss. The objective of this workshop, is thus, to equip yourself, to elevate your mind and soul through YOGA POSTURES


Pranayama - Science of Breath

Saturday April 14th

2- 6pm : 75€

Humans have an inherent quality to achieve harmony with nature. We often neglect this trait and trudge along precarious paths - seeking solace. Physically and mentally. ‘Pranayama’ is an ancient Yogic practice to regain this lost harmony and we shall lead you through it and train you to indulge in this magnificient breathing technique




Yoga Nidra - Deep Relaxation

Saturday April 14th, 6-7pm : 35€

Yoga Nidra or Yogic Sleep is an ancient, little-known guided deep relaxation technique that has ample utility in the current stressful world. Its nuances lie in walking that thin line between wakefulness and deep sleep - where you are aware of your body but disconnected to the surroundings. It is a deep relaxation technique that can be initiated even for beginners, and one can get a glimpse of what YOGA could be. Though it is a brief session, its effects are often profound and far fetching.

Acharya Bala, the Founder Director of Hatha Vidya Gurukulam, hails from Kerala, India. He began his journey on the path of Yoga from the Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy, Sivananda Ashram in Himalayas – where he attained his basic training. 

Seeking Truth, he travelled extensively across the vast expanse of Northern India and was fortunate enough to come across many eminent Masters who imparted the wisdom to attain the true essence of a Yogi’s journey. In 2006, he met his Guru who initiated him into the Naatha Tradition and under whose tutelage, he established Hatha Vidya Gurukulam in Kerala with an aim to impart Yoga to aspirants from all walks of life.


In 2009, under his Chairmanship, a residential Yoga Institute named Thapobhoomi was established by the banks of the River Gayathri at Kerala, India . Subsequently, its publication division started in 2010, which published ‘Hathavidya’ – a quarterly magazine in Malayalam language with exclusive content on Yoga and Tantra. To increase awareness of the science of Yoga and its affiliated training amongst schoolchildren – Acharya Bala has published books on Yoga training adopting scientific methodologies. These books have been published with a vision to cover the four stages of Yoga Practices, titled The Drops, Blossoms, In the Mould, Progress and Metamorphosis.


In December 2012, Acharya Bala established the first international venture of Hatha Vidya Gurukulam in Dubai. Since then, Hatha Vidya Yoga Centre Dubai is the focal point for all international collaborations extending across multiple locations in Europe, South East Asia, Americas and Australia.

"Les gens sont pris en piège dans l'histoire. Et l'histoire est piégée en eux." James Baldwin 

Nos mouvements de développement primaires , tel que atteindre , saisir , pousser et tirer sont la base intrinsèque pour chacun de nos mouvements et gestes quotidiens. En faisant attention à la façon dont nous nous déplaçons en relation les uns avec les autres , nous prendrons conscience de nos choix expressifs inconscients que nous faisons tous les jours. Cette conscience nous présente les choix de la façon dont nous interprétons et répondons aux autres , nous permet de façonner littéralement comment nous nous déplaçons et traversons nos vie.

Cet atelier encourage l'exploration et l'apprentissage de l'enfant par l'action , sous la forme d'une mini-conférence, de discussions interactives , des jeux animés basés sur le mouvement.

Nous allons apprendre en action , des micro mouvements à se déplacer complètement dans toute la pièce . Nous nous concentrerons sur la différence , non pas comme barrière , mais plutôt comme opportunité de communiquer les uns avec les autres . 

Mon souhait pour ce stage est d'aider à accroître notre sentiment de compassion l'un pour l'autre .

" vous pouvez en savoir plus sur une personne en une heure de jeu que dans un an de conversation."  Plato

The Four Pillars Of A Healthy Spine: Emotions, Strength, Balance, Flexibility



THE SPINE is a masterpiece of design containing over one hundred joints and associated muscles and ligaments.

Our new embodied understanding will allow for all daily movement and exercise to benefit spinal health.

Learn :

  • What the joints of spine need daily to be healthy.

  • How to improve spine stability and flexibility.

  • To achieve healthy posture both in sitting and standing.

  • How your pelvis influences the health of your spine.

DIGEST FOR LIFE : Organ health for your stomach. 

Mardi 4 juillet de 13h à 15h30

Organ Imagery for Health, Alignment and Flexibility. Filters for Life: Organ health for your Kidneys. The organs of our body not only carry our physiological functions: The vital work of maintaining, renewing, and reproduction. They also serve an important role in the support of posture and movement. Yet in the western world, organs are generally not considered when it comes to training the body. The organs fill out space in our torso and skull and from “joints” with other organs, bones, and muscles. Compression, suction, and suspension forces relate all these structures to each other. Knowing where and how, combined with dynamic imagery will provide you with a whole new avenue for improvement and well-being. The Franklin Method distinguishes itself by focusing on imagery, self-touch, and movement exercises that can be used by anyone in any setting. All types of imagery are used to promote movement, flexibility, strength, and general health. This course will demonstrate how organ training with imagery can improve movement, posture, flexibility, and strength; improve the organs physiological functioning; and improve stamina, digestion, circulation, moode immune function, etc. Learn: The connection between organs, strength and flexibility How the diaphragm and organs interrelate in 3-D How the organs affect mood and relaxation

How Long ? 2,5 hours





Mardi 4 juillet de 16h30 à 19h30

Many of us agree that breathing is very important not just for survival but our overall well being.  Yet most of us don’t really know how it actually works.  What is good breathing, what is the design, and what can prevent its proper activation?  Your breathing influences the health of a variety of aspects like posture, heart, digestion, pelvic floor, emotions, learning ability, and energy levels.

In this workshop, we will come to understand the design, structure, and movements of the diaphragm, ribs, deep abdominal muscles and how they can work together to strengthen and free up both body and mind.  Through easy to do imagery, touch, voice, and movement exercise we will explore the mechanics and physiology of breathing.  We will explore the wave pattern of breathing up and down the spine and experience how we can use our breath as our positive energy thermostat.

Learn :

  • How breathing works and what it means to breathe well

  • How posture and breathing are related

  • How to use breathing to improve your endurance

  • How to breath correctly in the Pilates exercises

How Long ?   3 hours

un moment de bien-être avec Sébastien

Mardi 25 avril 2017 de 18h à 19h30



Ouvert à tout public qui souhaite prendre un moment pour s’occuper de sa beauté extérieure et intérieure.


Le cours commence avec un gommage que l’on se fait soi-même.

Le gommage ou exfoliation permet à la peau de respirer en la débarrassant des impuretés et la rend plus douce et plus lisse.

Elle permet aussi d’activer la microcirculation en stimulant les petits vaisseaux sanguins du corps et du visage, ce qui favorise la régénération cellulaire.



Le cours se poursuit par des enchaînements de mouvements qui assouplissent le corps avec des exercices simples pour détendre les tensions, faire circuler et stimuler la puissance du corps sur le plan énergétique.





Vient ensuite différents exercices de respiration en musique.

La respiration alternée a de multiples bienfaits: Développe la concentration, augmente les capacités intellectuelles, équilibre les hémisphères du cerveau, favorise le calme et le retour vers soi.


Veuillez apportez svp : un gant de crin et une serviette.

Beyond WordsThe Connection Between Us

avec Jennifer Bury


“In a non-intrusive way Jennifer enables you to meet yourself,while you learn to use your body more e ec vely, more fully, more comfortably.“ Female CEO of a Fortune 500 communications company



We communicate with each other all the me - with and without words. This nonverbal communication,or “kinesthetic resonance”, is rarely recognized, yet provides the intrinsic basis from whichwe interpret and respond to the world around us.Through experimenting with our primary developmental movements in relationship to each other, we will become aware of our own unconscious expressive tendencies. This awareness expands our perception of ourselves and thereby increases our overall ability to connect with others.The workshop will include theore cal, experiential, and collaborative learning in the form of a mini-lecture, interactive discussion and engaged, action-based-play, to excite our curiosity for exploration and meaningful contact.


Do not the most moving moments of our lives and us all without words?“ Marcel Marceau


Jennifer Bury went from medical school to the School of the Arts in Dance at NYU to co-forming a dance company and since 1985 has been running her private practice as a movement therapist, originally based in New York City and now in San Francisco.
