Stretching In Warm Water
Water has a beneficial effect on the body. In water, the body weighs only a tenth of its actual weight, so it feels lighter. Water relaxes and has a massaging effect that stimulates the skin, promoting blood circulation. Aqua-stretching in warm water bases itself on relaxation, breathing as well as resting. Stretching in warm water promotes greater range of motion as ligaments, tendons and muscles will offer less resistance. This workshop is given only in french.
12pm to 2pm
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.
