Les Liens is the outcome of my personal story, my experiences and the people I met along the way, as well as my interest in personal development.
Growing up, we’re not often taught how to take good care of ourselves, get to know ourselves, be in touch with our feelings or emotions; and even less during adult life. We are so busy doing things that we forget about being. Yet being is about discovering and fostering our natural resources to improve intrapersonal and interpersonal relations…This is where our name Les Liens (i.e. the links, relationships) comes from.
Sharing is our best ally. Being listened to and accompanied along the way, at our own pace and taking into account our wishes. Such are the core values and philosophy behind this project and the creation of this living space. A place to meet. A peaceful place/environment. A place for our self.

Sports coach & energy therapist
Movement and body have been my passion since I was very young. Three years of studies at the dance conservatory, as well as an advanced background in gymnastics and various dance practices, allowed me to acquire a great rigor combined with a need for constant perfection and infinite curiosity, which leads me to constantly seek new ideas and movements in order to make my work more interesting, to grow and grow perpetually , aligning the well-being of body and mind. For me, movement is an expression of one's inner self towards one's external self, a form of art in perpetual change, a form of "meditation", of salutary encouragement.
Since she was a little girl, she has always been passionate by movements and body. In search of a deeper meaning and with a passion for dance and a travelling soul, Manon started her career as a Spanish teacher but also did diverse training in natural medecine which she truly enjoyed and soon after Chakradance crossed her path and it was love at first sight. Now through this liberating and transforming practice, she finally put her teaching skills into practice. According to her, this way of exploring body and mind offers benefits such as growth, depth and lightness. Her workshops are aimed at anyone who would like to discover themselves in a new way and to happily celebrate who they truly are.

Yoga teacher (Yin)
After training in fine arts, many years practicing dance, theatre, and yoga, I wanted to offer courses combining these different practices that feed each other. The Kundalini allowed me to refocus, find my alignment and work on my own truth, it allowed me to trust life much more and soothed me enormously. When I'm on my mat, I know I'm in the right place at the right time. That's why I want to pass on the magic that accompanies me every day. My practice is punctuated by the 5 elements, the seasons and phases of the moon.

She liked the lack of competition offered by yoga, and she later discovered the deep self-acceptance, patience, connection, self-union that is embodied by practice, through breathing, awareness of sensations and meditation. She had the chance to learn and practice tantra yoga in an ashram in Thailand in 2020 to transmit tantric philosophy and propose a way to connect with oneself and its truth, learn to understand and express oneself, with relaxation and serenity.

Les Liens, this is also:
A solidarity project
Another incentive to our project is to help out young artists by displaying their creative work (pictures, paintings, objects, etc). By providing them an opportunity for artisitc expression at Les Liens, we want to support their art and passion. To us, this is another approach to personal development.
An eco-friendly project
We believe that protecting the environment is crucial that is why we take actions to reduce our ecological footprint and link Les Liens to the Paris Nature Project : a green and vegetated envionment, a floor and front desk made of wood coming from sustainably managed forests, visiting cards and flyers made of recycled paper, as well as partnerships with companies committed to sustainable development.
A humanitarian project
We want to contribute to associations and actions that hold a special place in our hearts. We want to share a part of our profits. In the meantime, we are focusing on the development of our activities in view of the current turbulent period. We hope to share our projects with you in the near future :)
