We stayed at Constance Le Prince Maurice for the second week and absolutely loved it. Amazing rooms, decor, ambience, attention to detail, food, discreet but friendly staff, surrounds. Only blemish was one day of adverse weather.

Was I upset we missed the Maldives? No. This is an ultimate Indian Ocean honeymoon destination that will blow your socks off.’ Read the whole review.

Fast track to fitness with Isabelle Lamant

I’ve been working at Le Prince Maurice for five months now and it brings me great pleasure. Teaching my classes here brings me a feeling of real happiness.

Here’s some more about the training I offer guests visiting the resort. Each week I hold:

  • Hatha and Ashtanga yoga classes on the beach
  • Aquagym in the lap pool
  • Tone up, stretching, special abs and glutes classes
  • Zumba circuit training

All of these programs are good for both health and body shape with some guests saying they feel like they’ve visited a health camp during their time with us.

Don’t worry about your fitness levels or your previous experience because I adapt my classes to suit everyone from the beginner to those much more experienced.

Yoga at Le Prince Maurice

During my yoga class we practice breath control and asanas (posture) which improves strength and flexibility. Then the restorative aspect of the session is a delightful way of giving prizes to our muscles after a hard workout. You will learn relaxing postures you can do every day wherever you are.

My tone-up classes will really help work every muscle in your body. Together we will tone-up abs, glutes, arms, back and legs, stretching them to sculpt a beautifully balanced body. I will even show you a routine you can do at home to carry on the good work.
I also offer personal one-to-one training to work specifically the areas your body needs. Sessions can be carried out in the fitness centre, in your room or even on the beach.

I look forward to seeing you soon for your stay at Le Prince Maurice, a place for well being and health.

Isabelle.
