Program

Sormiou : yoga ses­sion in the pine for­est near the Mor­giou car park. Start the walk along the tourist trail to the cross­roads and take a break at the view­point. Taste some veg­an snacks with herbal tea or gar­rigue (scrub­land) syrup. Descent into the deep Calanque de Sormiou, pic­nic on the beach. Return by ascend­ing to reach the Col de Cor­tiou and fin­ish with a walk along the ridge.

Mar­seilleveyre : a loop start­ing from the port of Cal­le­longue, a short climb to join the GR 98/51 along the edge with panoram­ic views of the sea, the Calan­ques de Cas­sis, Île Maïre, Jaïre and Riou. Veg­an gourmet break.
Yoga ses­sion on a Napoleon­ic artillery fac­ing Riou Island and pic­nic on the wild Mar­seilleveyre cove, only acces­si­ble on foot or by sea. Return via the Calanque de la Mou­nine with a gen­tle climb to the Cal­le­longue sem­a­phore, with its 360-degree view of Mar­seille, the Frioul islands and the Blue Coast range on one side and the Riou arch­i­pel­ago and the Calan­ques on the oth­er. Return to the Cal­le­longue port car park.

Sugi­ton : a one-kilo­me­tre walk through the heart of the pine for­est along bushy side paths, then a hike towards Sugi­ton, a sporty descent beneath the cliffs where migra­to­ry birds nest, also a renowned climb­ing spot. Veg­an snack at the halfway point.
Yoga ses­sion above the sea on a ded­i­cat­ed plat­form, then a short descent to the “Tor­pe­do boat” cove, named after the rocky islet there. Pic­nic lunch.
The hike ends with a car­dio ascent through the scrub­land towards the Luminy uni­ver­si­ty cam­pus.

Yoga is suit­able for all lev­els. It gen­tly awak­ens the entire body, improv­ing con­cen­tra­tion and feel­ing in har­mo­ny with nature.

The hike is enhanced by botan­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal facts and var­i­ous anec­dotes about the myths and leg­ends of Provence.

Moments of med­i­ta­tive con­tem­pla­tion, lulled by the sound of the waves.
