Hossegor Surf Coach - lets go surfing
Go surf the best surf spots on the day with a local professional surfer. We will search the Atlantic coastline between Capbreton , Hossegor & Seignosse checking the tides and sand banks to discover some great surf conditions and the perfect beach break. I offer a great package which includes transportation from your hotel to the beach and back. Wake up early for the “ dawn patrol session” and go searching for the best waves in town whilst everyone is sleeping in. The early bird catches the worm. If you prefer a later session after breakfast then can head up North to Seignosse catch some waves and maybe have lunch on the beach enjoy the warm weather and chill time. Sunset sessions in France are amazing because the sun sets over the ocean the the evening surf sessions can be the best. We can surf all day morning til night.
YOG studio experience
My YOG studio is behind the center of Hossegor and its lake. Opened for a few guests per class I will guide you through an ashtanga vyniasa practise. It is a Mysore class, oneself practise but props are allowed. I will help you on postural adjustments as I will guide you through some technical tips to get into some difficult postures while you'll practise the first sequence of ashtanga vyniasa yoga. Other things to note Ashtanga Yoga is a strong physical practise. Here there is no pressure, the important thing is to try and to understand the breathing technique. Props are used to help you while you practise.

Rando lever de soleil & petit déjeuner au sommet de la Rhune
RANDONNEE LEVER DE SOLEIL & PETIT DEJEUNER AU SOMMET DE LA RHUNE Nous vous proposons de vivre une expérience unique, un moment hors du temps, avec un lever de soleil au sommet de " l'Everest Basque " qui, du haut de ses 905m, offre des points de vues à 360° époustouflants sur tout le Golfe de Gascogne d’un côté et la chaîne des Pyrénées de l‘autre. Guillaume, Alain ou Richard (les 3 si vous êtes nombreux!) vous accompagneront sur ce parcours de 11km pour 800 mètres de D+ La durée à titre indicatif de cette aventure est de 5h environ, mais dépend de l'allure du groupe ainsi que des arrêts. Sur un parcours agrémenté de quelques surprises, et dans ce haut lieu de pâturages, nous croiserons des Pottoks, petit chevaux symboles du Pays Basque ; parfois des Mannex “manèche”, brebis à tête noire ou rousse certainement moins connue que le fromage produit grâce à son lait généreux (l’Ossau-Iraty) ; ou peut-être les Betizu, une espèce bovine sauvage, cas unique en France... ou encore le vautour fauve Saïa qui plane sur les flancs de la Rhune. Au sommet une pause thé-café, croissants ou gâteau basque vous réchauffera ! Nous entamerons la redescente en franchissant la frontière franco-espagnole. Possibilité également en version TRAIL.
Ascent of the Rhune and local tasting
Rhune mountain WITH LOCAL PRODUCE TASTING. We offer you a unique experience by combining sport, culture and gastronomy. All at the service of your well-being. An adventure! 11 km and about 5 hours More than 800 meters from D+ (the first 4 km) The duration of the service is by arrangement and depends on the appearance of the group as well as the stops. At 905 m, the "Everest Basque " offers 360-degree views of the entire Gulf of Gascogne on one side and the Pyrenees Mountains on the other. On a route with a few surprises, and at this hotspot of pastures, we will meet Pottoks, small symbols of the Basque country; sometimes manèche manicured, black or red sheep certainly less known than the cheese produced thanks to its generous milk (Ossau-Iraty); or perhaps the Betizu, a wild species, unique in France... or the Saïa fave that hovers on the slopes of the Rhune. At the top a tasting of local products y una cana will make it easier to recover! (jamon ibérico, local sheep cheese, Basque cake...). We will begin the descent by crossing the French-Spanish border. Consult US for A SUNRISE at the top of the Rhune. Possibility also in TRAIL version.

The Bubble of Serenity in the Pines
Albert Einstein a dit: "Celui qui n'a jamais commis d'erreurs, n'a jamais tenté d'innover". Alors c'est ce qu'on va faire ensemble pendant 1h. On va innover, tenter des choses. Peut-être que ça ne fonctionnera pas du 1er coup mais ce n'est pas grave car on aura tenté. Un cours = un thème. De la méditation, de la respiration, des étirements doux & une pratique dynamisante pour le corps & l'esprit.
