De-Stress Retreat

Come for a two-day three-day or five-day Retreat

Life today is characterized by constant change and it is a well known medical fact that this causes high stress levels. It’s a wellknown fact that stress compounds itself, leading to ill health, weight gain, anxiety, depression and drastically lowered energy levels. As much as your emotional and work stress has an effect on your health – the food you eat also plays an important role. Our habits add up- and the bad ones take their toll.

Welcome to a unique retreat: Get a quick way to break those habits, find your energy renewed, clear your mind, relax deeply in an enjoyable environment  all while being surrounded by an attentive team of experts.

We at Holistic Retreats believe that relaxation is the key to rebalance the body in all three levels  (the physical, physiological and psychological).

The Executive De-Stress/ Stress Buster Retreat is programmed in such a way as to granting you release from stress. You will leave the retreat relaxed and rejuvenated. You will be equipped with techniques to cope better with the world you face. You might even choose to loose the habit of letting yourself run into stress and go for a better quality life.

Shala Taramangaling

The 2 weeks Yoga –self discovery –Retreat

. The success of the retreat is based on the design, structure and content being accessible and of value to everyone. You can attend this journey  if you are at the beginning of your yoga or curious and we also cater for those with more experience.

Is your interest more physical yoga? Is your interest more spiritually focused? Or is it to stop the wandering mind so you can create more peace in your daily life? The 2 weeks Yoga-self discovery Retreat explores all these avenues to give you positive tools to continue using in your everyday life.

The yoga classes are  Hatha/ ashtanga style with a strong emphasis on mindfulness ( awereness) to bring you in to present moment living,  incorporating the elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air.

There is also in option: the possibility to take private consultation with Christine Pauchard in the afternoon if you have particular needs regarding your health or your emotional balance and want to learn more about yourself.

Teacher: Christine Pauchard (see more on her profil)
In 2004, after two years studying  Hatha Yoga and Yengar, she discovered  Ashtanga Yoga  and started to  study with Monica Marinoni until 2016 and  since 2007  under the guidance of Sri Sharath Jois  (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’grandson)  at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.

In 2010 she opened “ Yoga et Bien-etre”, where she was teaching for 4 years, running Hatha Yoga class evenings for adults, children and people with health issue;  and daily Mysore style program in the mornings. And the last year, she started to offer workshops and retreat on Yoga and meditation including Satsang about Yoga sutra, relaxation and pranayama.
For 14 years she studied the yoga through her own daily practise and teaching, the mind through regular and repetitive meditation retreats, she gave importance to the sadhana, she learned more about the body through her training and experience in Thai yoga massage and about the mind through her training and practise in NLP (sessions, workshop) .   

With deep gratitude and respect she shares the primary series teachings as she has been taught by Monica Marinoni and Sri Sharath Jois.

workshop Yoga in Lyon- France 21st October / atelier a lyon le 21 Octobre









Samedi 21 Octobre : 14h30- 17h30
A Lyon – France – 19 Rue Cuvier 69006 Lyon

Atelier destine aux pratiquants de yoga( novice, débutant ou confirme)

Nous allons nous immerger dans le systeme philosophique indien du yoga nomme AShtanga Yoga. Le terme Ashtanga provient des mots sanscrits “ashtau” qui signifie 8 et “anga” qui veut dire “membres”. Les 8 membres font référence à 8 pratiques essentielles dans le yoga développés par Patanjali dans son recueil intitulé « Yoga-sûtra et repris et developpe par Krishnamacharya

L’etude de ce systeme philosophique et de ses differents principe et la mise en pratique ouvre la place a  l’harmonie réalisée a l’intérieur de son propre corps et  permet de laisser la place au   bonheur paisible qui peut éclore et peu a peu s’installer (que l’on peut aussi appeler plénitude  ou bien-être physique et mental).

Nous développerons les 6  premiers principes:
Les règles de comportement (yamas)

L’autodiscipline (niyamas)

Les postures corporelles (asanas)
La respiration (pranayama)
La maîtrise des sens (pratyahara)

La concentration (dharana)

a travers une réflexion sur yamas et nyamas, puis l’étude d’un exercice de pranayama, et des exercices pour développer la concentration et la maitrise des sens et terminerons par une pratique des asanas en tentant d’incorporer certains des éléments acquis.

What is Auroville ?

Auroville is an experimental township near Puducherry inSouth India. It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Alfassa (known as “The Mother”). As stated in Alfassa’s first public message about the township, “Auroville is meant to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realize human unity.”

The people living in Auroville dedicated their life to the purpose of Auroville: realizing the human unity, following the integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and Mother.

Holistic: is a registered entity under Auroville foundation ( Government of India) dated 17/03/2015  with the notification number: 27/33-88UU

All therapists listed are Aurovilians and practice therapy in the vision of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. Integral Yoga implies seeing ones role as a therapist as a catalyst, trusting the inherent knowing and source of healing in each human being. The intention of therapy is to activate the body’s self-healing processes, leading to an integrated re-alignment and balance on all levels of the being – mind, emotion, body and spirit.

Past Workshops

Hello, I did the 2 days workshop Yoga with Christine. I enjoyed the way we practiced and I was surprised to learn so much.  Since then I am more aware in my practice and in my daily life. She showed me how to advance beyond my yoga routine and how to overcome my fears.  This was so great, the effect is still with me.
