They are supervised and guided by the President of Vélocypède:

  • Fiona Madden is an Irish (English speaking)  Advisor in Hygiénism
  • Trained in Natural Hygiene by Désiré Mérien* 
  • Qualified in Food Quality Assurance, Fruit & Vegetables (DIT, Dublin)

Fiona is a former athlete; she was an international cyclist in the '80s with the Irish team for several years. She represented her country including various world championships and international competitions. 

Fiona has always been interested in the art of well-being and the environment.  

Fiona worked for several years with the Education Nationale in Vendée teaching English as a foreign language. 

She has also been a tour guide in Ireland for a tour operator.

In France, where her children were born, her interest in welfare and vitality from her experience as an educator and sportsperson, almost instinctively guided her towards the organization of programmes with the objective of teaching natural health.

Her enthusiasm unsurprisingly brings her to share her knowledge and experience of Hygienism with you through the proposed revitalization programmes. 

Fiona believes we live in a society where everything is based on profit. A society that encourages us to consume too much and overwork leading to “Burnout” ... She wants to warn us and guard against all these diseases of the so called civilized world.

She offers the opportunity to take a break from our daily lives and experience Hygienism in a little heaven of Brittany.

She believes that these programmes are beneficial and may bring serenity to your life, while caring for your health. She is looking forward to meeting you on one of her programmes very soon.

Fiona follows the hygienist lifestyle itself and hopes to help you manage and access better wellbeing. She will teach you the benefits of Hygienism the natural path to best nutrition and how to become an active participant in your new healthy way of living. 

To help you find the way to natural health, in the centre Nature et Vie, Fiona invites you to eat better, to breathe better, to relax and rejuvenate following a hygienist program specific to each participant, always concerned, in the spirit of improving your health and life balance, imperatively respecting your physical and mental limits.
