Soft Yoga with Amélie
Yoga is a discipline that is more than a thousand years old and has traditionally been practiced in India. The yogic art of living includes several areas: meditation, breaths, mantras, philosophy, diet and of course asanas (postures), also called Hatha Yoga. Since the end of the 20th century, yogic culture has travelled and adapted to Europe, America and then around the world. Today, several schools of thought exist. However, they have one thing in common: the experience of union between body, mind and heart. Enjoy a relaxing experience with Amélie. Currently a student at the Bachelor of Kinesiology program at the Université de Sherbrooke, Amélie has always been passionate about general health and well-being, the choice of the Spa has naturally established itself as a work environment since it allows her to share her meditation technique, her yoga practice and her knowledge of nutrition and health on a daily basis. Sensitive to everything around her, she will guide you towards a lifestyle that suits you and that will bring you lightness, confidence and joie de vivre.
10:30am to 11:45am
Nordic walking
Nordic walking can be done year round in any climate and anywhere, by people of any age or ability. The use of walking sticks 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.
12pm to 12:45pm

Une cuisine qui met en forme
*This lecture is offered in french only, however feel free to join us!* Vous vous demandez, qu’est-ce qui a inspiré Jocelyna Dubuc à fonder le Spa Eastman, qu’est-ce qui a fait qu’il y a 50 ans, et oui 50 ans, elle s’est mise à rêver de créer un endroit où les gens viendraient se ressourcer, se mettre en forme ? Pourquoi en 2000 l’histoire du sans gluten et sans produit laitier est doucement apparu dans les cures du Spa Eastman et pourquoi 18 ans plus tard le menu est exclusivement sans gluten et sans produit laitier ? Une mode ? Dans cette causerie livrée avec humour, Jocelyna Dubuc, présidente et fondatrice du Spa Eastman, raconte l’histoire et l’évolution des choix alimentaires qui ont mené à la création d’une cuisine unique, maintes fois primée.

Passez l'hiver sans être malade
**Lecture offered in french only ; however feel free to join us!** « Épuisés », « lessivés », « au bout du rouleau… » Trop de pression, de travail, de réunions, de déplacements, etc. Et voici que le système immunitaire s’affaiblit ou tombe en panne.

Comment passer l’hiver et éviter le cortège de rhumes et de grippes? Comment renforcer vos défenses immunitaires? Pour y parvenir, l’usage approprié de certaines plantes, le choix d’aliments ciblés et l’adoption d’habitudes de vie reconnues, voilà autant d’options qui feront toute la différence entre passer un hiver pénible ou un hiver agréable. Manon Viger, infirmière de profession, est aussi diplômée en naturopathie et en herboristerie.
