A handful of people are sitting in the lotus position in complete silence in a circle on the beach. Tiny, white grains of sand sparkle on their bare feet, and the light illuminates onto the mats. The afternoon sunshine is warm, and a gentle breeze ruffles their hair.
Then they get up, and move, in almost perfect synchronisation, into positions in concentrated, calm and natural movements. Only the yoga instructor’s soft voice can be heard above the gentle waves lapping the shore.
Complete peace and harmony.
