It has failed to understand that the world is not for beholding, it is for hearing…"

Relaxation is a natural daily practice. The word “Relaxation” comes from the Latin “relaxatio” which means "liberation" in the sense of " breaking free from one’s shackles." This is a technique whose practice can bring harmony between the body and the mind through physical relaxation, mental and / or muscle relaxation.

The word relax or relaxation are words much used in everyday language. In the nineteenth century “relax” meant any active process of psycho-physical relaxation and by popular use came to mean all the various states of relaxation we know today. We note that in our society these days, this method of achieving well-being is increasingly present and almost a necessary requirement in our stressful lives.

The Benefits

Relaxation classes are designed to relax the body in several ways; muscularly, psychologically and physiologically to achieve complete harmony. Relaxation is the art of positioning oneself comfortably, getting in touch with yourself, to reconnect with your body, but also with your emotions, thoughts and beliefs. This state of relaxation and calm (called relaxation therapy, also known as sophrology) allows us to feel and experience positive and pleasant feelings that realign the mind and body connection. The state of relaxation (muscular and mental) shows brain cycles called " alpha waves " (as opposed to beta - the woken state and theta - the state of sleep).
