DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE

This course is designed for those who want to strengthen their French but also enter in the wellness world at David Grand Spa (Le Paradis du Bien-Etre, Best French Hotel Spa award 2019 : https://www.leparadisdubienetre.fr) in the former farm of Château de Champlong property, 10 minutes from the school by car.

“As a yoga enthusiast who has an ongoing interest in well-being, I was very much drawn to the French and Wellness week offered by the school. David Grand is a very talented and engaging practitioner who offers so much as a teacher! I learned new French vocabulary that got put into practice right away with both yoga and massage sessions, and I especially enjoyed the fascinating look at Altearah organic essential oils and the science and theory behind their evolution.
Our discussions regarding finding balance between the body, heart and consciousness offered lessons that stay with me every day. This week is for anyone interested in wellness, and David and the Spa are so very welcoming. A big merci to them!”
