Aux vacances de P√Ęques, ma m√®re et mon fr√®re sont venus nous rendre visite en Dordogne. Le temps et la nature √©taient magnifiques. Des conditions id√©ales pour faire du Yoga¬†!

Ma m√®re pratique d√©j√† le Yoga alors que mon fr√®re d√©couvre cette discipline. J’ai r√©pondu √† toutes leurs questions avant de les guider pendant une s√©ance de Yoga en fran√ßais. C’est une exp√©rience tr√®s sympa que j’aime partager avec mes √©tudiants de fran√ßais qui viennent √† la maison en immersion.

During the Easter holidays, my mother and my brother came and visit us in the Dordogne. The weather and the nature were wonderful. The conditions were ideal to do Yoga !

My mother already practices Yoga whereas my brother discovers this discipline. I answered all their questions before guiding them during a Yoga session in French. It was a very pleasant experience that I enjoy sharing with my students of French who come to my house in immersion.

A l’origine, le Yoga est une voie spirituelle qui permet au Yogi d’atteindre la D√©livrance. L’aspect spirituel du Yoga est fondamental m√™me si beaucoup de personnes autour du monde consid√®rent sa pratique comme un simple exercice physique.

 Yoga was born in India almost 5,000 years ago. At that time, the Yogis were sages devoted entirely to Yoga practice. Originally, Yoga is a spiritual path that enables the Yogi to attain Liberation. The spiritual aspect of Yoga is fundamental even if many people around the world consider the practice merely a physical exercise.

2 – Yoga in France

Pourquoi pratique-t-on le Yoga en France alors que nous sommes vraiment différents de ces Yogis ?

Why do people practice Yoga in France, whereas we are very different from these Yogis?

Le Yoga reste universel et intemporel car il s’int√©resse √† l’Homme et √† la souffrance. Le Yoga propose des pratiques, des r√©flexions et des attitudes pour aider les hommes √† traverser la vie harmonieusement malgr√© les √©preuves. C’est pour cela que le Yoga a encore beaucoup de succ√®s de nos jours.

Yoga is universal and timeless because it concerns human beings and suffering. Yoga offers practises, reflexions and attitudes that help people to go through life and live harmoniously despite ordeals. This is why Yoga is still very successful nowadays.
