Outdoor pilates & fitness
Get your trainers on for a sporty walk in the great outdoors between Mont Chéry and Mont Caly. After breathing fresh air into your lungs as a warm up, settle down opposite the Mont Blanc for a relaxing Pilates session with Muriel. Outdoor fitness lovers will prefer a light hike in the forest on the slope of the Chavannes, ending with a lively muscle-strengthening class near the lac des Écoles, which you can swim in to cool down afterwards.
As genuine “health educators”, Laura and Audrey have decided to share their knowledge of the human body in order to address prevention, an aspect of health that is often neglected in standard therapy. The two friends offer naturopathy workshops, combining a simplified theoretical aspect of body function with a practical aspect including simple tips to adopt on a daily basis.
The workshops explore different themes to do with health. For example: eating according to the season / medicinal plants around a picnic on a hike / when aperitif goes hand-in-hand with health / DIY cosmetics / liver and detox / preventing seasonal burnout / with or without (gluten, dairy, etc.), and many others. The session begins with a simple and fun introduction to body function. It is followed by a practical session dedicated to preparing and making accessible recipes, which are easy to make at home.
Tuesday of the month, from 7pm to 10pm in the cosy setting of the “les Petits Sablés” tea room in the village centre. Private sessions possible on request.
Peace and a new energy are blowing over Les Gets, and have arrived at the Complementary Therapy Practice, “Shiatsu».
This manual Japanese therapy which uses touch to restore balance within the body and thus promote health, is perfect after a physical activity or to start your holiday after months of work. Indeed, Shiatsu provides a deep relaxation of the body and mind, as well as a powerful loosening of muscles and joints. The practice involves rhythmic pressure, stretching and more gentle manoeuvres all over the body. Deriving from traditional Chinese medicine, Shiatsu is a true ally in combating numerous disorders (stress, anxiety, chronic diseases, insomnia, etc.).
A graduate from the Therapeutic Shiatsu School of Paris, Stéphanie is attentive to each person as a whole and with their own specificities. The session lasts around one hour and is practised on a futon on the floor; comfortable clothing recommended.

Lulu’s heritage visits
Affectionately known as “Lulu”, the young Lucie Bartholomé is passionate about stories from the old days. She therefore created heritage visits and treasure hunts, which reveal some of the village’s secrets to visitors. These include a dramatised walk called “sur la piste de Raymond Moudon” (on Raymond Moudon’s trail) takes place on the slope of the mythical Mont Chéry.
In an instant, you’ll go back 1000 years in the history of Les Gets, to a time when the village was at the crossroads between rival territories between Le Chablais and Faucigny. All along the walk, little shows highlight the sites and remarkable characters of the village. The walk retraces key moments like the blossoming of Mechanical Music, the life of the illustrious botanist Père Jean-Marie Delavay, the creation of the village church, agro-pastoral traditions and the development of tourism in the early 20th century.
