The morning begins with a yoga session under the casuarinas, facing the magnificent Ermitage lagoon. Lay out your yoga mat, take a sip of detox water and switch your mobile phone off so you can focus only on the present moment. The silence on this deserted beach is broken only by sound of the waves of the Indian Ocean breaking onto the coral reef and the singing of the birds, as we begin our yoga postures facing the sea. We go from the half-moon to the lotus flower poses, as the sun starts to slowly warm up our muscles.
Little by little, our breathing becomes deeper, calmer and the whole body goes into a state of relaxation.
Once we’ve completely let go, it’s time to go and work on our suntan! We lie down on our towel, a smile on our face thinking of all the things we won’t be getting around to doing today. We’ll be hanging up the ‘do not disturb’ sign for the next 24 hours. All around us, the warm sun of Reunion Island leaves a golden tint on our skin and we really start to feel like we’re on holiday.
