I have never tried Sophrology, let alone even heard about it, what is it?
Sophrology is simple and gentle but amazingly powerful. Whether you have already done some or none at all, you can benefit from our retreats.
Florence likes to describe it as a modern super-charged, super-fast meditation-type technique that can be adapted to our everyday life with ease and flexibility, helping us achieve an alert mind in a relaxed body.
Sophrology means “the science of the consciousness in harmony” and it was created in Spain in 1960 by a neuro-psychiatrist. At the crossroads between Western relaxation and Eastern meditation, it does not require complicated postures. It is very flexible and adapts to the person’s needs and abilities.
Sophrology uses a very practical set of tools: relaxation, breathing, focusing exercises, visualisation and simple movements.
Sophrology has been used intensively in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain… in hospitals, schools, companies and sports for stress, anxiety, self-confidence, sports mental preparation, stage performance, insomnia, burnout, chronic fatigue, pain, depression and a lot more.
