Estelle Lefebure from Paris to St. Barths
We had the opportunity to sit down and ask the supermodel all about her life, her island, and her focus on health and wellness.
Imagine the taste of cinnamon and banana between your teeth, the feeling of light satisfaction from a breakfast of oatmeal with shredded coconut and raspberries. Imagine your feet in damp, cool sand, your fingers intertwined as you stretch your waking body to the morning sky. Picking up your paddleboard, you begin to wade into the water, gentle waves breaking on your stomach. You exist only in the present, peaceful as you envision this next hour spent doing yoga on the ocean’s surface.
Estelle Lefebure is turning this vision into a reality. This famous supermodel has developed her exclusive Orahe method, which she used to curate a series of wellness retreats on the magical island of St. Barths. Her three and five-day programs focus on a set of well rounded, core principles: eat, move, and be. With paddleboard fitness and yoga, delectably nutritious menus, and special-made in-house spa treatments, Estelle’s approach to well being is nothing short of heavenly.
Guiding people towards happiness and mindfulness is just one of many things this incredible femme has accomplished in her lifetime. We had the opportunity to sit down and ask her all about her life, her island, and her focus on health and wellness.
Following the success of my two first books published in French, Mindful Beauty, the English translation of Orahe, Ma Méthode Anti-âge, is being released worldwide and I am thrilled about it.
