Workshops & Retreats



Laurence regularly organises yoga workshops and retreats in Switzerland and elsewhere. She teaches in French, English or both languages simultaneously. If you run a yoga studio in Geneva, Vaud, Valais or German-speaking Switzerland and would like to organise a workshop, please contact us.

A Yin and Restorative yoga teacher, certified in the Yoga Tune Up myofascial self-massage technique and trained in Sonotherapy approaches, Laurence offers all these practices to beginners and more experienced yogis alike.

From a few hours to several days, these workshops and retreats invite you to relax and let go of both mental and physical stress. If you'd like to share a moment of serenity in a group, find out more about our forthcoming events on this page.

Sunday

10:00 - 11:30

Myofascial self-massage

Espace MOSAÏC, Carouge

Price 45.00

Myofascial Self-Massage is a simple and effective way to take charge of your well-being, using Tune Up® Yoga balls to massage, knead and stretch your muscles and connective tissue.

Find out more


The self-massage techniques practised (using the Roll Model Method®) can reduce or relieve pain, improve posture, reduce stress levels, increase joint mobility and flexibility, release tension in the muscles and improve sporting performance. In this way, you will free up the points or areas of your body that have been used excessively, insufficiently or inappropriately.

This lengthy practice will give you a great deal of relaxation and a deep massage effect, as well as regulating your respiratory system, balancing your parasympathetic nervous system and increasing your mental concentration.

Suitable for anyone who wants to take care of their body, with the exception of pregnant women and until post-partum recovery is complete. If you have any doubts about a medical condition, please consult your doctor and ask for his or her authorisation. No previous yoga experience is required. Massage balls will be loaned to you for this session.

Sunday

02 juin / 07 juillet 2024

17:30 - 19:00

Restorative Yoga & Sound Bath

Espace MOSAÏC, Carouge

Price 45.00

RESTORATIVE YOGA makes perfect sense in the search for balance and health that is needed to counteract the frenetic pace and excess characteristic of our times. In this deeply relaxing style of yoga, poses are held for 5 to 10 minutes in total comfort, with your body fully supported by bolsters, blankets, belts, blocks, eye cushions, etc.

Find out more


In this way, you can "let go", completely releasing physical, emotional, mental and energetic tensions. The nervous system quickly becomes balanced, the body relaxed and the mind calm. Breathing practices (Pranayama) and relaxation (notably Yoga Nidra) are suggested during the poses.

This particular practice will last 1 hour 30'. Laurence will guide you through several Restorative poses, help you position the props appropriately, introduce you to ways of relaxing more effectively and offer you plenty of attention, space and silence.

Depending on the day, the sound dimension will be introduced in small steps as an accompaniment to the postures, or as a sound bath in its own right as you settle into Savasana after 2 or 3 restorative postures. The intuitive instruments used are varied and vary from session to session: Himalayan singing bowls, crystal bowls, drums, kalimbas, chimes, shakers, etc. Simply let the vibrations and sounds guide you towards relaxation.

No previous yoga experience is required.

Thursday

23 May / 20 June 2024

19:00 - 20:30

Exploring Yin yoga

Soham Yoga, Geneva

Tariff 50.00

The Exploring Yin workshops will take you further in your Yin yoga practice by encouraging you to appropriate the postures or 'forms' on the basis of a functional approach.
What stimuli should I look for? How can I find them by exploring variations? How can I dose them in a way that is appropriate for me today? How can I play with the position of my limbs to feel something different? What accessories should I use and how?

Find out more


By being creative, by connecting to ourselves, to our feelings and to the reality of the variations of the human body, we will explore everything together. We'll be enriched by the comments, perceptions and experiences of the other participants, to see just how different shapes can be and how many options there are! =

These workshops are designed for people who already have some knowledge of the Yin approach to yoga, without necessarily having practised it much (this is not an introduction). They are also suitable for Yin yoga teachers who wish to deepen or refresh their knowledge and discover new possibilities.

The next 2 sessions will take place at So Ham Yoga:
23 May - focus Hanches
20 June - focus Upper body

Friday 20 to Sunday 22 September 2024

THE LOCATION - CHALET GANESHA

PROPERTY
In a former alpine farmhouse dating from the 1950s, Solange dreamt up and created this uncompromising retreat that combines conviviality, soul and comfort. Chalet Ganesha has been completely renovated and fitted out according to the principles of Feng Shui, right down to the smallest detail, including the use of spring water. The communal areas, with their convivial lounges and vast covered terraces, are perfect for reading, relaxing and sharing.

FRAME
a place that is both splendid and practical: the unobstructed view will inspire you both during your yoga practice and in your moments of individual relaxation. The chalet is located in the village of Champéry in the Valais, a typically Swiss village with preserved architecture that you can discover on foot, and is easily accessible by train and car (approx. 1h45 from Geneva). The chalet is situated at an altitude of 1,050 m, in this region of the Swiss Alps, at the foot of the Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches mountain ranges.

ROOMS
The rooms all have the atmosphere and warmth of a mountain chalet, and are furnished with charm. Bed linen and towels are provided. The price of the retreat depends on the room you choose. Double or single rooms are available, subject to availability. Bathrooms are shared.

VEGETARIAN CUISINE
Meals, brunches and evening dinners will be prepared for us on site by Coralie, a passionate cook and founder of Coco's Cuisine. She'll also be preparing small snacks to enjoy as an afternoon snack and - in moderation - before morning practice!

More details and photos on Chalet Ganesha and Coco's Cuisine

All our practices will take place in the GRAND GANESH. This brand new 121m2 wooden shala will inspire us with its mountain atmosphere, its views of nature and the surrounding mountains and its flood of light. Please note that the organiser reserves the right to accommodate the group in another room in the Ganesha chalet if the group size is reduced.

All MATERIALS will be provided by our hosts at Chalet Ganesha (yoga mats, blankets, straps, blocks, etc.). You are of course welcome to bring your own mats and equipment if you wish.

THE LOCATION - THE HOTEL-PENSION BEAU-SITE IN VALAIS

PROPERTY
Beau-Site is located in the small village of Chemin, nestling between the Rhône and Dranse valleys in the Valais, above Martigny. The style and turn-of-the-century architecture of this place won us over from the very first moment we set foot here. We particularly like the atmosphere of this historic building, its unusual colours, its beautiful light, the warmth of the wood and the verandas with panoramic views to the south and west!

ROOMS
Each room has its own style and all are equipped with the very latest bedding from the Swiss eco-responsible brand Europe & Nature. Bed linen and bath towels are provided. The price of the retreat depends on the room chosen. Double or single rooms are available, subject to availability. All bathrooms and toilets are shared.

LE LIEU - SURYALILA RETREAT CENTRE

Suryalila PROPERTY: a beautiful, renovated former olive farm consisting of eight houses that make up the cortijo. In typical Spanish style, there are two inner courtyards, one of which is flowered with orange and lemon trees. The property sits on 50 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 800 olive trees. We also grow organic vegetables and fruit and keep chickens for eggs.

SETTING: Suryalila nestles serenely in a wide open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema. This majestic mountain range looms large on the horizon behind Suryalila. A striking part of the property's natural beauty is the breathtaking views stretching in all directions: hills, sunflower fields and lakes. The sense of vastness and expanse is very uplifting.

ROOMS: the houses on the property are all tastefully furnished and decorated with particular attention to detail. Each room is uniquely beautiful with impeccable Feng Shui. The price of the retreat depends on the room chosen. The following rooms are available, subject to availability: a suite, Deluxe or Superior double rooms and rooms with 2 beds. Each room can be booked for individual use, except for the Twins (see details under "Rates & Rules").

Vegetarian CUISINE: sumptuous banquets of delicious vegetarian and vegan organic gourmet dishes. We grow as much food as possible and keep our own happy chickens who provide us with eggs.
