An Introduction to Sophrology: 9.30h Tuesday 8th June

Sophrology is a structured method of personal development designed to reduce stress and promote mental and physical well-being. It has become very popular in this time of COVID.

Are you feeling stressed, anxious, sleeping badly or suffering chronic pain then this event will be perfect. Or maybe you would just like to enjoy an interesting and relaxing morning with a few friends.

Mandy Postlethwaite is a trained Sophrologist working in English and French and has now set up her own Cabinet which is already proving a great success as so many medical practitioners are referring patients especially during these difficult times.

Mandy has kindly offered to host a series of group workshops at her home, depending on the numbers, to introduce the benefits of Sophrology.

Visit & Walk: Domaine de Certes – 10h Friday 7th May

The Domaine de Certes -Graveyron covers 531 hectares of natural sites and harbours a large variety of wildlife. In Certes, the Marquis de Civrac built dykes on the tidal marshes to create Bassins and produce salt. Eventually the Graveyron and Certes dykes were converted for fish farming, agriculture and forestry as the salt works disappeared.

After 1960, the production ended completely and the two areas are now been concentrated on the preservation of wildlife such as swans, egrets, cormorants, black kites, grey herons and storks.

Our walk will take us around the Graveyron loop which starts and ends at Audenge harbour. On the way, you will see La Vacherie (the cow barn) which is open to the public, the majestic Chateau which is currently being restored to create a tourist project and the unspoilt beach of Graveyron where you can take a dip if the fancy takes you!
