Experience Overview

Yoga & diving - it is quite a unique but a wonderful combination! The two have more in common than one would think: the key element of both yoga and diving is breath. To breathe is to live - it is the essence of life. During this 8-days retreat to the Maldives, participants will get back to their essence, finding deep relaxation and recharging to the fullest.

There is another reason why yoga and diving are the ultimate combination: yoga helps to find inner stillness and that is just what is needed to get real close to the amazing marine life of the Maalhos Lagoon. The marine life features magnificent coral gardens, reef animals and more enchanting sea creatures such as sea turtles, manta rays and whale sharks.

The pristine white sandy beaches of Maalhos, fringed by palm trees and bordered by a clear blue sea, make the perfect backdrop to relax, practice yoga and explore the world beneath the surface. Underwater adventures are combined with yoga on the beach and snoozing in hammocks. The retreat is only suitable for certified divers but there are opportunities to learn how to dive before the retreat starts.

The retreat lasts 8 days and it includes daily yoga classes and 5 diving trips. On top of that, there are some fun day trips planned such as a trip to the sandbank, a dolphin cruise and snorkeling.

Mornings start with Vinyasa Yoga on the beach, a flowy, almost ‘dancing’ type of yoga as described by yoga teacher Sunkissed Yogini. Another type of yoga she teaches at Island Spa Retreats is Yin Yoga which focuses on releasing blockages with long restorative poses.

This diving and yoga retreat in the Maldives is a unique island experience and adventure. Retreat participants get the chance to reconnect with themselves and with nature, getting back their bodies back in their natural rhythm and getting their minds back to a state of peacefulness.
