Isabelle Chartres, orthodontist (


“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”.
