The benefits of yoga with Lisa Esteve Pacoud

Publié par alexis, le 2 July 2021 Discover the benefits of yoga. Lisa Ep shares with us her vision of yoga and her tips for getting started but also her journey with 100BON.

Introduction

Hi 100BON team 😊

My name is Lisa, I was born in the south of France where I grew up in a family of sportsmen. I started judo and dance at the age of four and got my black belt in judo at 18. After graduating from high school, I went to a professional dance school in Paris, but I felt the need to reconnect with myself and yoga was the solution. After practicing a lot in group classes, I decided to go and train in India to be able to teach and transmit all the positive things that yoga brought me in a difficult period. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

After graduating, I continued with training to become a sports coach and coach at Dynamo Cycling.

Then I completed my training with the Yin yoga and pre/postnatal yoga diplomas.

Today yoga is my job, but also a passion and a way to feel good physically and morally.

The benefits of yoga

  • What are the benefits of yoga ?

Yoga has many benefits. Among the most important I would say that it brings balance to our lives. When we unroll our mat we escape into our practice, we connect to our breath and we are fully connected to the present moment. A balance in our busy and intense lives. 

Yoga allows us to improve our posture by strengthening deep muscles, flexibility, balance and breathing.

  • How to start yoga ? What equipment should I have ?

Yoga can be started at any time and at any age. You just need to adapt your practice with a yoga style and a teacher that suits you.

To start, you can simply get a yoga mat and then invest in accessories such as blocks, a strap and a cushion (bolster and/or zafu).

  • What are the different practices and for whom ?

There are many practices, but we can simply remember that there are soft practices such as hatha and yin yoga, dynamic practices such as vinyasa and ashtanga and “personalized” practices such as pre/postnatal yoga, women’s yoga…

To choose, you just have to listen to your body to adapt your practice according to how you feel and according to your goals.

  • Why do you like yoga ?

I love yoga because it’s a time where I let my body move as it needs to, where I take time to breathe and forget about my day. Sometimes I like to do postures that will challenge me and sometimes just a meditation on my mat.

  • How did you get started ?

I started by trying several styles and several teachers to understand which yoga to choose according to my needs and my feelings on my mat.

The yoga advice

  • How to introduce yoga into your daily routine ?

You can start by rolling out your mat for 10 minutes 2 to 3 times a week and then maybe every morning to wake up your body before starting the day or 10 minutes in the evening to let the energy and pressure of the day go down and let the body relax before going to bed.

Your experience with 100BON ?

What does 100BON mean to you ?

For me, 100bon is like a bubble of happiness. For a few minutes, I close my eyes and take the time to breathe and appreciate the moment thanks to the fragrances.

  • What products do you use ?

I love the Lâcher-prise spray, the roll-on new breath and sweet dreams.

  • When do you like to use them ?

The let-go spray once a day to bring me back to the present moment, the new breath roll-on in the morning after my shower and the sweet dream roll-on just before bed.

I often use the release spray at the end of my yoga practice for the last Savasana posture and let my body relax.

A deligh t!!!

  • Do you have any advice for use ?

With the spray or the roll-on I would simply advise to close your eyes and enjoy. The magic happens very quickly.
