1. Start the Day Right with Sunrise Yoga
Relax the shoulders and back and escape to AWAY SPA and hear the relaxing sounds of the waves against the shore
Sunrise yoga at the spa, where the sun rises above the horizon just right in front of you
Feel the gentle sun rays glowing on your skin as you gently move into the various stretches/ moves over here at the spa. Great yoga workout in Maldives 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. Maldives Yoga Retreat 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.
Yoga with a view like that, what’s not to love?
4. Yoga on the Beautiful Maldivian Sand
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.
Here are some reasons why yoga is a great workout to do while travelling.

Hi Lydia, My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Maldives for this late Aug, – mid September. Given the Covid situation, are there any great yoga retreats happening there now? We’re both intermediate – advanced Ashtanga practitioners, however we’re good and happy to do vinyasa flow, hatha, etc …. I appreciate any advice and personal opinion!
