When we moved to Geneva 4 years ago I didn’t speak any French, but one of the first things I did was join a French-speaking yoga club at the local gym and it really helped me.
The course allowed me not only to de-stress, stretch and relax, but also to meet new people and continue doing something that had always been a part of “me” for years, the “me” that I felt was dangerously slipping through my fingers in this new (and not quite fitting) role as a trailing spouse.
Most importantly though, my yoga course helped me to learn some French without the pain of a grammar lesson ! Before I knew it, I’d mastered all the French words to indicate body parts, muscles and a bit of meditation French as well.
If you love yoga, or always wanted to try it but never had the chance, why not make the most of the glorious summer season in Geneva and join one of the Yoga in the Park courses starting on Monday 25th of June ?
