Yoga is a holistic practice combining physical postures, conscious breathing and meditation to cultivate mental, physical and emotional well-being. Suitable for everyone, it aims to strengthen the body, calm the mind and encourage connection with oneself.

30' HIIT Cycling
HIIT cycling is a workout on a stationary bike, alternating between periods of maximum effort and active recovery. It aims to burn fat, improve cardiovascular fitness and strengthen muscles, all in a short, intense format.

45' Circuit Training
The circuit training class is a workout that combines different strength, cardio and flexibility exercises, performed in rapid succession. Each exercise is performed for a set period of time, followed by a short break, promoting muscle strengthening, endurance and caloric expenditure.

Discovery course in sophrology and stretching

Cinzia, Harmony's sports coach, invites you to immerse yourself in an experience of relaxation and balance during her discovery workshop in sophrology and stretching. Come and experience a moment of inner contact with yourself, creating harmony of body and mind.

Sophrology is a mind-body method used in personal development. It provides mental and physical well-being by eliminating stress, anxiety and fatigue, while helping to channel and manage negative emotions.

To this method, I like to add dynamic sophrology breathing exercises created by Doctor Alfonso Caycedo, who developed a form of awareness training.

I also combine sophrology with static stretching, accessible to all, which completes this wonderful method by oxygenating the muscles and relaxing our fascias.


Date and time
May 4, 1:30 pm to 3 pm.

35.- for Harmony members
55.- for non-Harmony members

Employee profile

Jonathan, the triathlete from the flat country!

Welcome to our "Portrait of the month" section! This month, we're delighted to spotlight one of our newest employees. Get ready to meet Jonathan Tondeur, a passionate recruit who perfectly embodies our commitment to well-being and health. Let's find out together what motivates "Jo" and how his personal journey can inspire each and every one of our members on their own journey to wellness.

Who am I?
Hello, my name is Jonathan and I come from the flat country. I've always been involved in sport (running, soccer, indoor soccer, cycling), but I discovered fitness in 2006. And it just clicked! I decided to make it my profession. I trained in personal training in 2007 and began my new career. In 2008, I accompanied a client to an RPM class and was hooked! I'd never set foot in a group class before...

What's my background?
From 2008, I continued my training in personal training and added group classes to my portfolio. With the aim of improving my support for anyone wishing to include physical activity in their routine, I decided to train in nutritherapy. Diploma obtained in 2015. In parallel with the sport-health aspect, I'm turning to competitive running and triathlon, which I'm training for from 2019 to 2023.
My leitmotiv being the development of each individual's full potential through physical activity, I'm at your disposal to support you whatever your objective.

Discover Batchcooking

Optimize your nutrition and your time with Batchcooking: the wellness secret of elegance and efficiency.

What is Batchcooking?

As the days grow longer and summer fast approaches, it's time to refocus on a healthy, balanced diet to support our fitness goals.
However, reconciling a nutritious diet with a busy schedule can sometimes seem like a daunting challenge.

That's where batchcooking comes in.

Batchcooking is a method of meal preparation that involves planning and preparing several meals in advance, then storing them for days to come.

Not only does this save precious time in the kitchen, it also ensures that you always have healthy, balanced meals on hand, helping you to avoid the temptations of fast food or less healthy ready-made meals.

How to get started

Plan your meals: start by drawing up a meal plan for the week ahead. Choose simple, balanced recipes that can be easily prepared in large quantities.

Shop accordingly: draw up a shopping list and buy all the ingredients you'll need for the week.

Prepare your meals: pick a day of the week when you have a little free time to devote to meal preparation. Then prepare several portions of each dish and store them in airtight containers in the fridge or freezer.

Reheat and enjoy: simply reheat your prepared meals when you're ready to eat them.
