Chez Cameil : Food, Yoga and Wellness

<p>It has been&nbsp;my dream&nbsp;to create a friendly place, in Paris, where everyone feels free to take care of their well-being (thanks to yoga, community&nbsp;and a healthy diet), but also to share their ideas, emotions and desires. The goal is to create a community with a family atmosphere, so that people gather in a place where they feel &quot;at home&quot; and take the time to rest, refresh their minds and grow. This space is open to all and is collaborative.&nbsp;</p> <p><br /> <br /> <strong>Who is this space for?</strong></p> <p><br /> - Yogis, those who already practice yoga and love it. For them, yoga is not just a sport but a philosophy of life. They wish to deepen their practice, discover new related subjects like Ayurveda*,&nbsp;and integrate yoga into their daily lives. This new space will become their favorite place to learn and practice.</p> <p><em>*Ayurveda is one of the world&#39;s oldest holistic (&ldquo;whole-body&rdquo;) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It&#39;s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>- New Yogis, that&nbsp;have heard about Yoga from there friends or read an interesting article about it and want to discover what it&#39;s all about.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>- Non Yogis, people interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>- People interested in becoming a part of a small community</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> - Pregnant women and young mothers.

Vegetarian menus are prepared for lunch and a brunch is organised every Saturday.<br /> Everything is self-service so that customers feel free to settle and stay the time they want. In the heart of the space, a large community table allows you to recreate a family atmosphere and get together for practical workshops. Zero waste is at the heart of Chez Cameil&#39;s approach: everything is recyclable or reusable.<br /> This relaxation area also houses a small corner&nbsp;where products related to yoga, natural cosmetics and books on spirituality, cooking or meditation, are on sale.</p> <p><br /> <img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><br /> - <em>A space&nbsp;dedicated to the practice of yoga and meditation.</em><br /> Yoga classes are given daily. Beyond the traditional Vinyasa and Hatha Integral Yoga, specialised courses are offered (meditation as well as pre and post natal yoga, yin and kids yoga&nbsp;...) and regular workshops to deepen certain practices. There are many guests from all over the world to give workshops such as sound healing&nbsp;classes, detox workshops with juice tasting, full-moon workshops, mindfulness and more.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>- <em>An office</em> shared with many health and wellness practitioners like; coaching, massage, acupuncture, and naturopathy.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /><br /> &nbsp;<br /> - <em>Personal development workshops</em>. Cameil also hosts cooking classes, vegetarian and detox, including workshops around naturopathy, guest chefs, the manufacture of natural cosmetics, and zero waste. As well as poetry readings, film screenings or evenings organised around world cultures, politics, the environment&nbsp;and feminism. All these&nbsp;programs aim&nbsp;to encourage exchanges,&nbsp;personal development and cultural diversity, as well as&nbsp;to raise the awareness of the greatest number to the well being and the protection of our&nbsp;environment and us as a community.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><br /> - <em>Time spent with children</em>. This place is also intended to be a place open to children and teens to educate them from an early age on issues related to well-being and the protection of the environment. Meditation and philosophy workshops, cooking classes, reading classes ... are organised and yoga classes are reserved for them at specific times of the week.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><br /> &nbsp;<br /> - <em>Outside the walls.</em> Chez Cameil is also exported by organising regular yoga retreats, formations on healthy cuisine and great quality service.&nbsp;Weekends easily accessible from Paris or&nbsp;weeks abroad.
