Whether it’s with acupressure, massage, or Qi Gong and Yoga instruction, Beatrice Appay will help you achieve your goals.
Her treatments were often the only relief I could get for my eczema.

I’ve attended Beatrice’s Qigong classes for many years. Beatrice Appay is a remarkable and engaging instructor. She incorporates her passion, knowledge and special humor into each session. I practice many of the movements I learned from her classes into my own regular routines. I whole-heartedly recommend Beatrice’s Qigong sessions to anyone interested in gentle movement to improve balance, flexibility and well-being.
Her outdoor classes are a slice of heaven.

Wellness Coaching and Pranayoga (Polyarthritis)
La Haute Couture du Yoga
Suffering from severe Polyarthritis with heavy treatments accompanied by side effects, I have had the chance to benefit from Beatrice Appay’s private yoga classes and wellness coaching for 18 months. Each class is adapted to my state of the day.
If I am in relatively good shape, we practice asanas that are well suited for me to regain my level in terms of muscle strength and flexibility. If I’m tired and in pain, Beatrice offers me a whole range of breathing practices, well balanced with deep and gentle postures that allow me to sleep better and alleviate my pains. Each time, it is all totally adapted to my condition.
Each time, I completely relax after her session, in a bliss state and ready to have the best night of my life.
After each class, I feel a deep sense of well-being even if I was feeling like a wreck at the beginning of the class.
In addition, Beatrice gave me very good advice on anti-inflammatory diet, lifestyle and stress relief. Since I started, and thanks to her excellent guidance in coordination with my doctors, I have been able to go from 10mg/day of cortisone to 5mg. I have also been able to reduce my weekly injection treatment.
I would say that her approach is “Haute Couture” compared to an ordinary yoga class and classic health coaching. Of the highest quality and totally made on measure, everything is thought out, followed, prepared, which allows us to continue with the greatest confidence.

Beatrice’s premium one-on-one yoga sessions are unlike any yoga class I have experienced, a much higher and deeper level of thoughtful movement. We focused on many restorative deep breathing exercises, one of which I now draw upon daily. Beatrice’s yoga sessions are backed by years of study and her own devoted practice.
I recommend her yoga sessions most enthusiastically.

Cranio-Sacral Treatment and Therapeutic Massage
Beatrice Appay is truly an all-encompassing gifted healer. I have been searching for over a year for help to heal a head injury. With each Beatrice’s treatment, I feel my body more in balance with my nervous system, pain relief and overall function. I have recovered my sleep and sleep well, feel more energetic. She went beyond the Cranio-Sacral Therapy my doctor recommended, as she is well versed in other bodywork such as massage and acupressure. Her diverse expertise helped her pick up liver and pancreas dysfunction. I realized this was from pain relievers I had been using to treat my injury.
I am forever grateful.

Taking Qi Gong classes with Beatrice Appay is for me a marvelous experience. Following her guidance for 30 minutes a week, I feel uplifted mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Beatrice is special in her person, possesses and communicates with grace, knowledge, confidence, surety, guiding me in a method towards peace and balance in myself.
Peace and joy is the highest energy vibration of wellness one can hope to achieve in life. Classes with Beatrice have me feeling this essence and contribute greatly towards my wellness.
Beatrice is the real deal, living proof that you can be stronger, more certain of yourself and… younger by the days!
I highly recommend and encourage others to practice Qi Gong with Beatrice, join in a class and experience tapping into your better selves.
