Birthlight in France
Stéphanie Launay is committed to the practice and teaching of Yoga for health
and for promoting a balanced life-style at home and at work. With the integrity and lightness that she radiates to all who meet her, she has
created an unusual Yoga Centre in Rennes, France, to implement her vision.
After a classic yoga formation and then training with Birthlight in Perinatal
Yoga, Fertility Yoga, Baby Yoga and now in WellWoman Yoga, and with Rainbow Kids
Yoga for Children and Family, Stéphanie offers a wide range of classes for
families as well as adult yoga classes and classes for stress
management. Her motto, drawn from an Indian proverb, translates as 'treat your
body well so that your soul feels enjoys dwelling there'.
There are a number of Birthlight teachers in France but circumstances were never
quite right for organising courses there. La Maison des Anges with its joyous
and lively atmosphere, its ecological architecture and design, its warm
welcoming that receives touching evaluations from pregnant women and new mothers
feeling nurtured and 'cocooned', is an ideal home for Birthlight in France. Stéphanie's superb organizational capability makes it
possible to organise Birthlight courses not only for a francophone audience but
also for international groups, particularly for Aqua Yoga. We share a passion
for 'thassalotherapie', (therapeutic uses of sea water and oligo-elements in sea
water) that is uniquely developed in France. The first Aqua Yoga course in
France (international) will be held in one of the beautiful French centres near
the sea and this fulfills my dream of bringing not just yoga and water but yoga,
sea and therapy together, at a time when a small group of Aqua Yoga teachers are
pioneering special Aqua Yoga Therapy focus in Birthlight.
With La Maison des Anges just a short plane hop across the Channel, we can look
forward to many nurturing and stimulating Anglo-French Birthlight courses.
