Brice is not your average yoga instructor, he is far beyond that. He has practiced and thought different types of yoga and meditation around the world. This is a great opportunity for you to learn and practice yoga and meditation with one of the best yoga instructors around.
Brice was born in France and now lives with his wife and 3 kids here in Spain. He has a passion for travelling, climbing, fitness, eating healthily and living an eco-friendly lifestyle amongst many other things. He is a teacher of yoga and meditation and his classes range from absolute beginners to advanced. His classes are positive and fun and he always gives individual attention to each person to make sure everyone is comfortable and are getting the most out of the class.
“The classes that I teach are a blend of my personal experience and practice; the precision and the therapeutical aspect of Iyengar, the flow and the energy of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, the concentration and the introspection of meditation.”
In 1995 Brice started practicing meditation, in 1996 he became a specialised coach in physical preparation, stretching and relaxation, these qualifications are known in France as HACUMESE 1 and BEAECPC and today they are the most recognized french titles to be a physical trainer or a coach. In 1999 he discovered yoga and started practicing regularly with the lyengar school in the UK. While living in Auckland, New Zealand he found a passion for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and practiced at the Ashtanga Room, Auckland. In 2002, after completing some courses in Asia, he added Vipassana meditation to his practice. He now runs his own yoga classes here in Spain when he’s not working here at the boot camp. We are extremely lucky to have such a dedicated and qualified yoga instructor in our boot camp.
“I’ve met a lot of yoga teachers in my life, but Brice is one of the very few westerners who actually live like a yogi, instead of only teaching the physical and the gymnastics. And it shows: during classes, the amount of attention he has for each student is terrific, meaning you get exactly the corrections you need to get the most out of the asana’s and the class in general. In addition, his calm presence creates an environment that enables you to actually listen to your body and mind, making his classes super-intense, in a deep and very relaxing way. Best yoga teacher I know. He’s also a fantastic massage therapist, for anyone who needs help rather than yoga lessons.”

The Boot Camp has been designed to incorporate high intensity fitness training into fun activities and excursions. Take one of our fitness activities as an example: Imagine a cycling tour through stunning, lush tropical countryside where amongst the mango, avocado, lemon and other fruit trees, you stop to take in some impressive, ancient Roman aqueducts and yes, there will be challenging fitness tasks to complete at some of the stops. Or what about a run along the coast to the next beach where Kayaks will await us for a sea tour on which we will hopefully spot the resident dolphins in the bay. This is what we’re about, fun, challenging activities with the main aim of getting you into your peak physical shape and boosting your overall confidence.
