Sophrology is a relaxation technique based on yoga.[1]

According to Pascal Gautier, "Through an everyday practice, sophrology aims at harmony in human beings: quite a feat! In practice, it does not mean seeing life through pink-tinted glasses but putting an end to an unrealistic or negative vision of life to see things as they are (as much as possible) and reinforce whatever positive we have in us."[2]

The French Ministry of Health (fr) stated that Sophrology was neither defined nor recognised as a discipline within the French public health code (fr).[3]
