The wedding preparation can be stressful if you don’t take time for yourself.
As we already mentioned in our article “romantic and luxury weekend in Paris”, it is important to take care of yourself and take a step back from the preparations. You can only enjoy them more.
One of the techniques we are suggesting today is sophrology. Léa Boucher, sophrologist, guides us.
What is sophrology?
Sophrology is a «training of body and mind to develop serenity and well-being based on techniques of relaxation and activation of body and mind». To sum up, practicing sophrology will allow you to be more relaxed.
It is also associated with a form of meditation. It connects your inner world with your outer world.
We will be able to focus on our positive thoughts in order to know each other better and thus regain confidence in ourselves but also in our future.
Sophrology allow you to work on your concentration and memory, but also to manage your stress, in order to take a step back of life changing, an event, like your wedding for example.
How to practice sophrology?
Even if sophrology can be practiced alone at home, we recommend that you be accompanied to start well and thus acquire all the benefits of this practice.
A session lasts on average 1h, and costs around 20€ for a group session and from 60€ alone. You can do it face to face or via a video call.
During your session, you will be offered visualization, breathing and dynamic relaxation exercises to relax bot, the body and the mind.
