Yoga and Pilates

Bonjour! My name is Renée and I’m a certified yoga, mat Pilates and reformer Pilates teacher, holding group and private classes for beginner and intermediate students at my studio within our Bed & Breakfast in Aumagne, France.

There are currently 3 group yoga classes and 1 group mat Pilates class per week.

(J’enseigne également en français ; voir ci-dessous pour plus de détails.)


The style of yoga I teach is Vinyasa Flow. ‘Vinyasa’ in Sanskrit means ‘to place in a special way’, and that’s what yoga is to me: a flowing sequence of postures, helping to strengthen and stretch the body while at the same time allowing the mind to find stillness. Yoga becomes a moving meditation for the body, mind and spirit.

Current yoga schedule as of Autumn 2021:

  • Yoga pour débutant(e)s, enseignée en français et anglais, lundi à 15h30
  • Yoga for beginners, taught in English and French, Tuesdays at 15h45
  • Advanced beginners/intermediate, taught in English, Thursdays at 11h00
  • Private lessons by appointment only


Pilates is often called a ‘mind/body’ exercise because it requires concentration on proper alignment and technique in a series of controlled movements to help improve muscular weakness and imbalances. It can help build strength without adding excess bulk, and the focus is on the ‘core’ — all the muscles, joints and bones from shoulders to pelvis, including the spine, back, gluteals and abdomen.

  • Group mat Pilates, taught in French and English, Fridays from 11h00-11h55
  • Private mat classes by appointment only
  • 1-to-1 Reformer Pilates classes by appointment only

is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses

and struggles of life”
