Here’s a few reasons on why Maldives is one of the top places in Asia for that yoga and wellness retreat, to recharge, rejuvenate and renew your mind. Clear all the stress, cleanse your body with fresh sea breeze and detox with the fresh fruit and coconuts found on this island.

1. Start the Day Right with Sunrise Yoga

Feel the gentle sun rays glowing on your skin as you gently move into the various stretches/ moves over here at the spa. Great workout to get the pulse beating and a nice rosy morning glow. This is best experienced with a nice cup of ginger tea after which and a nice dip into the nearby beach to cool off, relax the back muscles and catch some Maldives stunning beach and marine life.

3. Yoga on a Private Island

We had the honour to have yoga guru Tara Stiles conduct a few sessions of Yoga at W Maldives, and one of which was a lovely morning exotic yoga session on a private island Gaathafushi 10 minutes by speedboat from W Maldives. You can’t find this yoga experience easily available at other yoga popular places like India and Bali.

Stunning view and crimson skies as the sun rise into the skies. The good yoga workout was then ended off with a delicious champagne breakfast and lovely array of fruit and fresh bakes, with your feet dip into the water.

White sandy beaches just make all the pictures look so stunning. When practising yoga, it is important not to strain your body or over stretch. We are always told repeatedly to relax our back, relax our shoulders and breathe.
