State diploma in sports education

  • Diploma in dietetics Doctor Martin Privat nutrition expert
  • Reiki Ta Tô Qi graduate is a traditional method of well-being and health practised through the laying on of hands. Once initiated, the practitioner becomes capable of capturing energy present in space and transmitting it to himself or to the person for whom he is practising.
  • Access Bars graduate (Access Bars is a pragmatic and powerful method of energy clearing that enables you to eliminate limiting beliefs and ways of functioning (fears, moral suffering, spirals of repeated failure and so on). Access Bars® gives you free access to your true nature. Your true nature is then free to express itself with simplicity and spontaneity. By gently touching certain points on the head with your fingers, you relearn to simply welcome, giving up all effort. The flow of thoughts calms itself. The Bars are the connections that are activated when the practitioner gently touches 32 parallel points on the skull. Activating these points helps to release the electromagnetic charge of thoughts, beliefs and points of view that limit us. The Bars allow you to experience a moment of deep relaxation, helping you to unwind both mentally and physically and reconnecting you to your true being, to lightness, joy and creativity.

Your yoga coach and sound therapist


Anaïs offers yoga classes for all levels.

With her, discover hatha yoga, a discipline for everyone. Hatha yoga is a series of postures (asana) combined with breathing exercises (pranayama).

But it's also with all her gentleness and great sensitivity that Anaïs invites you to re-establish the most intimate links with yourself, thanks to the treatment with Tibetan bowls called sonotherapy.

Sonotherapy uses sound and vibration to bring relaxation and rebalance the natural electromagnetic field emitted by our bodies. The body absorbs vibrations. And we know that certain vibrations have both physical and psychological therapeutic virtues.

Anaïs uses several instruments that emit sounds and vibrations of varying degrees of power, including Tibetan bowls, drums and her voice.

Sonotherapy has many benefits. It helps to :

  • Reduce stress, let go;
  • Decrystallise and release tension, blockages and physical pain;
  • Revitalises the immune system, lymphatic system and vital energy;
  • Regenerate cells (made up of water, they resonate with the instruments)
  • Release emotional burdens;
  • Cleanse the energy centres ;
  • Reconnecting with yourself.


A truly suspended moment, a sonic journey to the sounds of drums and Tibetan bowls.

Your Art Therapist


Stéphanie is driven by creativity in all its forms. Every day, she finds a blank canvas where she can give free rein to her passion for painting, drawing, ceramics and modelling.


The infinite palette of colours, the contours she delicately traces, the soothing sensation of the earth slipping through her fingers: all this inspires her and transports her to a world where only the imagination reigns.


Painting, drawing, ceramics and modelling are her favourite tools for escaping from everyday life and letting her soul speak. Each of her creations is a window onto her inner world, a reflection of her deepest emotions and thoughts. When she immerses herself in her art, time seems to stand still.


At Ulysse Stéphanie offers you a privileged space for creativity and expression. The worries of everyday life fade away, giving way to a deep sense of freedom and well-being. Your hands become an extension of your spirit, passionately crafting works that carry within them all your feelings, your moods and your hopes.


In this space of creativity and expression, you will find a refuge where you can be yourself to the full, without constraints or judgements. Stéphanie uses artistic creation (drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, etc.) to help you get in touch with your inner life (feelings, dreams, the unconscious, etc.), express it and transform yourself.


Each of your creations is a celebration of the alchemy between your inner life and your ability to bring it out into the open, to integrate awareness and change within yourself.


Your mountain leader and nature guide


Your guide Loïc, a mid-mountain leader, will be able to suggest and accompany you on the most beautiful hikes..

Loïc is a very special person, with a passion for botany, a big child of the South, curious, dreamy and full of energy. His playground is the Gardon gorges, where he offers unusual walks to discover the flora and fauna of this unique area.

As he comes across plants along the way, he likes to use our 5 senses to help us discover nature and wild edible plants through tales, legends, anecdotes and magic tricks.

Thanks to Loïc, the discoveries you'll make along the way are just as exciting as those you'll make on a long-haul trip. The unusual appears with every step you take. It's an exploration through our senses, where nature gradually unfolds to reveal itself to us.

"Man has had a very long relationship with nature since prehistoric times. A relationship that is often forgotten or lost over time.
