Brianna. The yoga session, a bubble of well-being

This Thursday morning there in Brionne, Nicole, Sylvie and Catherine are getting ready to experience “a moment of happiness”. Sitting cross-legged on the carpet they have just installed, the three women participate in a sports and well-being session, next to the paramedical center, avenue de la République in Brionne (Eure).

“It’s nice, we find ourselves among friends. And then it was missing here,” they say. Classes are taught by Mylene Porchet. Interior designer for fifteen years, former cabaret dancer in the Paris region, she has always been immersed in the world of yoga, which she considers to be the combination of everything that suits her: physical activity, but also respect for oneself and others, and the relationship with the environment.

“In the field of interior architecture, we talk about spaces and objects, nothing very lively. I wanted to communicate directly with people, to be human,” confides the young woman, who became a sports educator in 2016. She began by teaching Zumba and muscle strengthening. Endowed with a certifying training, she has also specialized in the vinyasa yoga few months ago. “It’s a danced, dynamic yoga, where you do sequences of postures to the right and to the left,” she explains. Practitioners put aside their thoughts and walk away from the usual bustle. “There is a part devoted to breathing, we become aware of ourselves and of the present moment”, explains Mylène Porchet.

The postures related to breathing allow you to take a step back from things in everyday life. It’s a long journey to get to relax and not let yourself be overwhelmed.

Muscle building

Her exchanges with the professionals of the paramedical practice encourage the educator in her projects, such an offer can meet a need in the Brionne sector. Group lessons on Thursdays, in small groups of a maximum of eight people for a period of one hour, work well. They attract retirees in the morning, more working people in the afternoon.

“I want people to find their bubble, their parenthesis here,” says Mylène Porchet, who also offers stretching, yoga workout and gym ball sessions for muscle building in a fun way.

“It’s complete at the sporting level, we work on flexibility, we seek out the muscles that structure the body. It is accessible to everyone. Yoga doesn’t adapt to you, yoga adapts to you. We are not in the search for performance, but rather in therapy. »

Since May, classes have also been open on Mondays at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. From the end of July, slots will be available on Monday evenings, knowing that individual sessions are also possible.

The one who led workshops during the health crisis, to learn how to make authentic skincare products yourself, also provides advice in aromatherapy and phytotherapy based on plants and essential oils. “It accompanies yoga very well, we can solve stress and sleep problems”, slips this nature lover.
