A place “to explore your body, your breath, your mind, your senses. A cocoon dedicated to (re)connecting to oneself and to others”. Korane Fayçal is at the initiative of creating the Yoko space, open rue Saint-Laurent, in Nogent-le-Rotrou, since the start of the school year in September 2022. A space to discover during the open doors which take place this Sunday 30 october.
“Several years ago, my mother, who is from Percheron, bought a house in Nogent-le-Rotrou, rue Saint-Laurent, with commercial premises on the ground floor. We refurbished this room and she suggested that I develop my project there. The idea is for it to be a collaborative place, where to meet and do things together,” underlines Korane Fayçal.
Throughout the week, you can practice different disciplines, yoga (vinyasa and hatha) with Martin Krutzki, Marianne Daneshmand and Korane Fayçal, Qi-Gong with Stéphanie, contemporary dance, group sophrology and reiki with Do Brunet, naturopathy with Louise Gouhier and Lucie Arribard, acupressure with Sébastien Giron.

An atypical journey
Korane Fayçal has explored several paths in her life. “I did a lot of different things. I obtained a master’s degree in communication and conflict management in Paris where I worked for a year, and then I took a certificate in oenology and went to Australia to work in the restaurant business. There, I trained in yoga during stays in Bali. I had been doing it since 2014 but I wanted to deepen my practice. I had perceived in yoga an introspective dimension which I liked, it is for this reason that I followed a training, more for a personal need at the beginning than to teach”.

Returning from Australia in 2019, Korane worked in the restaurant industry. A period not obvious because of the Covid. “I worked in restaurants like La Verticale in Bellême, and After School in Saint-Cyr-la-Rosière, my longest experience, I was on a permanent contract. I gradually settled in the Perche”. His home territory. “I am Franco-Tunisian. All of my mother’s family is in the Saint-Victor de Buthon sector. I came every summer to the Perche when I was little”.
“I had a bit of a hard time leaving the restaurant business completely and I still kind of want it to stay in my life one way or another. I have been teaching yoga for a year in addition to my side job. »
His project for a collaborative place was born when he returned to France, from his experience. “In fact, I liked doing this work of introspection accompanied by people who use physical, psychological or spiritual tools. I wanted to create a unique place where people could learn about all these tools. This did not exist, I think, in the sector”.
The practice of yoga is essential in his life. “It’s a way of moving your body consciously. Through movement, we open things in the body and this brings out emotions, it’s a form of moving meditation. We dive very deeply into ourselves and afterwards, we feel a little more alive, a little more connected to ourselves and to what surrounds us. It’s a feeling that I haven’t found in other disciplines except perhaps in the horse riding that I practice”.
