The Vignerons de Buzet cooperative is offering an original activity this summer: yoga in the vineyards. A preview of the session with Lauréna.
Greetings to the sun… This Tuesday morning in August, the star of the day is already warming the vines of the Domaine de Lhiot in Buzet. He will set it ablaze a few hours later. Lauréna Michot parks her car at the edge of a dusty road. She is a yoga teacher. Seven people including four tourists accustomed to staying in the region accompany him to live a rather unique experience: yoga in the heart of the vineyards. The original activity has been offered by the Vignerons de Buzet cooperative for three years, but this is the first full year.
You go down, you go up, there is a ten-minute walk on the hillside before reaching a pretty little meadow surrounded by trees and grapes. In the shade, everyone lays their carpet on the dry grass. The setting is zen, conducive to deep relaxation. The course is accessible to everyone, beginner or not.
Lauréna invites everyone to connect with breathing exercises, to pay attention to noises, to become aware of their body. She has a soft, soothing voice. The relaxation is palpable in all participants. They sink into the session to chain the postures.
Originally from Casteljaloux, living in Fauillet, Lauréna is back in Lot-et-Garonne after a spell in Bordeaux and England. First practicing, she followed a 200-hour training course in Pau where, she smiles, she learned a lot about herself. She was taught yoga sivananda, a traditional Indian yoga. She teaches a more modern yoga, “less strict, more fun”. Open to everyone. And different from that of Antoine Lasgorceix, the other yoga teacher who works in Buzet.
A buzet tasting at the end of the session
At the end of this enchanted parenthesis, everyone is invited to join the Vignerons de Buzet shop for a wine tasting. “After a yoga session, explains Lauréna, you are better able to appreciate the different subtle aromas of wine because you are more relaxed, more relaxed, more in tune with your body”. Sensations are developed. And obviously it works!
Tourist attendance is mixed this summer according to the Vignerons de Buzet. The month of August is starting on tiptoe. Wine tourism in Buzet (stroll in the vineyards, yoga in the vineyards, cycle tour in the vineyard, etc.) remains a safe bet in the department.
