This retreat offers a unique opportunity to experience the meeting of the Chinese energy art of Qi Gong and the tradition of Ayurveda, in a stunning location between sea and river.

Our daily practice of Qi Gong, nourished by deep breathing, alongside Ayurveda treatments will enable us to gradually reach a state of wellness, joy and inner peace, helping us to reconnect with our profound dimension and the conscious breathing of each cell. Shaped by Chinese sages for thousands of years, Qi Gong isn't just Chinese; it’s universal, in the sense that it is the expression of the memory of sacred breath, common to all humanity.

Qi Gong is the meeting of Daoist /Taoist and Buddhist traditions.


Rivka Crémisi teaches Qi Gong of Inner Verticality (Wu Ji Zhan Zhuang Qi Gong), Qi Gong of the Golden Thread, Eye Qi Gong and Tai Ji Quan (Wu style) in international locations since 1993.

She also teaches the symbolic meaning of Hebrew letters, the Kabbalah.

Her very personal journey enables her to build bridges between the body, energy and the letter. Her teaching style has its roots in the oral tradition. Breath, energy, sounds and resonance are at the heart of her work.

Rivka is French and the author of the book: “Splendeur des lettres, splendeur de l'être” (“Splendorous Letters, Splendorous Being” Body, Kabbalah and energetic medicine), published by Dangles.
