As we venture into 2018 the year doesn’t get more hopeful than it
is right now! As we close the door on 2017 and all its turbulent world crises, uncertainties and utter shocks we open the door to 2018 with renewed energy and positive outlook that we, individually, can contribute positively to our own little worlds around us and thus let those vibrations reach out into the community around.
Looking back at our second season in 2017 at Praana Wellness we couldn’t have asked for more – to have so many lovely yogis and other visitors from all over the world adding to the warmth and positive energies here at Chez Vallée. We hosted a choir group and their coaches (Chateau Chanson) and ran an art therapy retreat, both with very positive feedback and both returning to us in 2018. The completion of the Yoga barn was our big achievement this year enabling us to host larger groups and available even when the Charente sun decides to hide! The introduction of a children’s yoga class also proved to be a success and will be on our calendar regularly in 2018 along with our weekly adult classes. Growing together as a yoga community is uplifting in so many ways, the support as regulars practise together and friendships blossom is heart-warming. I look forward to classes as they begin again from the 10th January.
My own personal achievement for 2017 was completing my Masters in Mental Health Psychology. It has contributed tremendously to my appreciation of the need for sound research-based therapeutic treatments and I am delighted to be offering both online and face-to-face counselling for so many people. Private therapeutic retreats are becoming a large part of what we do here as we host families, couples and individuals who wish to address key issues in a safe, balanced and healthy environment with an experienced Counsellor.
So, with a happy heart full of positivity I invite you to join us in 2018 for our local classes, one of our wonderful retreats or simply to “Be”. Our doors are open to all!
