« La mission de l'art n'est pas de copier la nature, mais de l'exprimer. » Balzac.
Hi everyone !
This is our first post and we decided to introduced ourselves to you: we are Honorine and Sophie ! Two french students who are passionate about and inspired by hikes. We are practising yoga on our everyday life and go hiking when we have the time and the weather is nice.
We thought that it was a great idea to combine those two interests: practicing yoga when we hike, and took pictures to promote it.
Because, it bring us so much peace and relief to practice yoga but doing it on top of mountains and volcanoes but also in woods or in the middle of nowhere is far more rewarding.
Yoga practice helps develop the body and mind bringing a lot of health benefits yet is not a substitute for medicine.
This photo was taken on top of the Puy-du-Pariou in Auvergne, by a dear friend of ours, we are facing the Puy-de-Dôme and doing what is call the "tree pose yoga". It is a yoga pose that will help you improve your balance and mental focus. It may also help you strengthen the muscles in your legs and core. In this pose, the lower body provides the support for the upper body as the body stands with grace and strength.
Trust us, doing that pose in front of a symbol like the Puy-de-Dôme with such a beautiful view will improve your mental focus and allow you to let go of all of your trouble for the rest of your day.
Now tell us, where is your happy place, where can you be yourself to just breath and let go?
We hope you're enjoy our photos and the next of our adventures in Auvergne !
