“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization. Yoga means union — the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions”.

B.K.S. Iyengar

I had the chance to be coached by Vainui on one-on-one yoga classes a few times a week during two months. She targeted exactly my needs and the result was a massive improvement on my freediving performances, as I gained much more thoracic flexibility and breath control. It was really an amazing experience and I highly recommend to anyone to take yoga classes with Vainui. She is very professional and experienced, and it makes a big difference with great results”.

“I chose Vainui because I knew she was a very active woman who could understand my needs. I was looking for a teacher who could make me stick to a regular yoga practice: I knew my body needed it but my mind would always reject it, and I would get bored during class. And she succeeded: she made me love it, and made me need it. I challenged her on our very first lesson, asking her to teach me onboard my little boat anchored in the lagoon, and telling her when she arrived that I was pregnant. She adapted really well, and it is to this day one of the best yoga classes of my life. The only minus: she chose to leave Tahiti to move to Huahine. Lucky you if you can follow her classes”.

I think the words I repeat most during class are « relax » and « breathe ». I know. What powerful insights. But honestly, these might be the most important aspects of any Yoga practice.
