Feel all the fun in a unique way at Cocco Bodu Hithi, an outstanding beach island resort in Maldives, that presents the first-ever floating yoga studio in the Maldives itself, the trending fitness activity, in alliance with AquaX Academy from China.
The concept of floating yoga at Cocco Bodu Hithi shall be available to the guests from March onwards this year. The pristine island lagoon with turquoise water keeping comfortable current all the time shall be the venue for these innovative floating yoga classes and other recreational stand-up paddle classes.
As Shafa Shabeer, the Director of Marketing at Coco Bodu Hithi, remarked, 'the resort team is really chuffed to bits to be teaming up with AquaX Academy to launch the very first floating yoga studio in the Maldives, as they are reliable leaders in the fitness industry'.
Founded by Queene Xiao, the Chinese ambassador of yoga apparel brand Lululemon, AquaX Academy pioneered the innovative water sports and activities in China and they are the first to launch a floating studio concept for fitness activities in China.
The resort should also be conducting a four-day SUP yoga retreat from 15th to 19th March led by instructors of AquaX Academy. Staged as part of the 'Ocean Sweat Life', a SUP retreat program, recommended by Queene Xiao and her fellow Lululemon ambassadors, the much-awaited retreat shall also provide regular yoga classes and introductory stand-up paddling and floating yoga sessions on the lagoon.
What's A Floating Yoga Studio & The Experience?
Floating Yoga, also known as stand-paddle board yoga, is now a popular form of fitness activity that shall take your workout to the next level. Similar to our regular yoga, the newly-envisioned floating yoga as well utilizes the quintessential principles of meditation, balance, strength, and flexibility, but in a desirably exaggerated way.
In the normal course, there is a yoga pavilion on the island too where you have a personal trainer and equipment. But you should never miss our over-water meditation and fitness program because it is a one-of-a-kind experience for you and Coco Bodu Hithi is the only one in the Maldives to provide such. Over the crystal-clear lagoon, you shall be performing your yoga on a comfortable and flawless stand-up paddleboard in a group. Your personal trainer shall be nearby on another paddle-board. Most probably, there would be three of you at a time with your paddleboard forming a triangle shape facilitating better stability over the water.
The water-floating yoga effects enhanced meditative practice by connecting your mind and body to nature and engaging your senses in a stable mood. Eventually, you shall feel your inner and outer portions of the self in true balance and alignment.
