In this workshop, you will find creativity et yoga practices influenced by Sri BKS Iyengar, experiential anatomy, Yoga of Sound ( Nāda), drawing ... Some will be based on Francois book My Lifāsana. In his teaching, Francois improvises on the theme like in Jazz music or an indian Raga ... Nothing really new but always fresh!

At the end of all exploring
Will be to arrive where we started.
And know the place for the first time.”
