Activities this week

Daily activites, as scheduled from 16 September to 22 September

7:30 to 10:00 Breakfast

As you enter the dining room, you will notice that there are tables for two or for six people. Thanks to the spirit of conviviality that often develops among guests, it is easy to opt for a place at a table for six and share a meal with other guests in a pleasantly informal atmosphere.

7:45 to 8:30 Fitness walk

It might become habit forming.

8:35 to 9:10 Body-building with resistance band

A convenient and compact accessory, resistance training elastics are good to use anywhere at anytime. Discover simple and effective exercises for strengthening your muscles. The session is complete by exercises using your body weight as a resistance . There are no more reasons not to get fit!

9:30 to 10:10 Anti-stress walk

You alway don't have time? This walk is right for you! Special techniques will help you focus on yourself and enjoy the here and now. It also allows you to take a well deserved break and free yourself from the daily grind.

10:15 to 11:15 Nordic walking

Nordic walking can be done year round in any climate and anywhere a person of any age or ability might otherwise walk without poles. It combines simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing. The result is a full-body walking workout that can burn significantly more calories without a change in perceived exertion or having to walk faster, due to the incorporation of many large core and other upper-body muscles which comprise more than 90% of the body's total muscle mass and do work against resistance with each stride. "Normal walking" utilizes only 70% of muscle mass with full impact on the joints of the legs and feet.

12:00 to 12:45 Thermotherapy initiation

Join this activity to learn all health benefits about thermotherapy! Our guides invite you to take the waters the European way and learn more about the benefits of alternating hot and cold on one’s overall health with the Kneipp approach, among others. Beyond the notion of pleasure and relaxation associated with Nordic spas in Quebec, this activity highlights the positive impact that thermotherapy has on health and quality of life in North-America. Follow the guide!

12:00 to 14:00 Lunch

Throughout the years, we have at times questioned whether or not to maintain buffet service at all meals. However, our experience, and also our deepest convictions, has shown that only the buffet has the ability to titillate and encourage visitors to discover new foods and a greater assortment of condiments. This formula has also been preferred because it allows each guest to create their own special dish, all in taking into account the activity they wish to do after their meal. At lunchtime, for example, one who is getting ready to receive a treatment will be happy to put together a light meal from the many choices available at the buffet. Conversely so, at the same meal, a visitor having just completed a session of aqua-aerobics and who will be going on a long hike in the afternoon, will be happy to refuel and all the while make more culinary discoveries! It is to preserve this flexibility and variety that the buffet has been maintained at breakfast and during the evening meal, even though table service is offered.
