is there any good yoga classes for relaxation purposes in Maldives?
Not that long ago there was a similar query about which resorts offer yoga and this list was very long ...
So probably best to look at other criteria (see FAQs) and then once you narrowed it down to see which ones also offer yoga.
Budget and availability tend to be deciding criteria, and for many of the regulars, a house reef.
I can't see it being something offered in local islands/guest houses (based on your other threads)
If you are staying at the airport or a local inhabited island it would be very unlikely you can do a yoga class. That sort of thing can usually only be found on resort islands.
Maybe you need to research your destination more and revise your plans. The Maldives has only recently been promoted to a developing country from a least developed country, and it's still a long way away from a developed country. Sharia law, poverty, human rights abuses all exist. In terms of media access, it's still considered third world.
I can't even say staying in a local inhabited island is good to enable you to see the " real " Maldives, not if you are staying at the airport, sorry, as per other thread post your budget and others can help with better recommendations.
Ashley .. i don't think you have researched your destination quite well enough yet . yes , there are awesome yoga classes in the Maldives . you find them in resorts . no , you cannot island hop to attend those . they are offered to guests at the resorts.
there is no corner yoga studios on local islands ... this is not like the California coast . its a very very different type of place.
on reflection , perhaps I should clarify what I mean by 'different type of place' . basically .. the average Maldivian doesn't have leisure nor money to spend to learn how to sit around in a fancy way . if they do have time to relax , they tend to sit around the old fashioned way .
I realx so much in the Maldives I dread to think what would happen if I did yoga as well.
Difficult enough to get moving as it is.
Ashley, is there any reason you can't do yoga quietly on the beach to the sound of lapping water? Do you need a group? I do Tai Chi quietly on my own in just that situation. Not in the Maldives though. I would be comatose.
Is there a beach on Hulhumale?
Kuri Inn Guest House on Omadhoo, 1 1/2 hr by speedboat from Male, has affordable yoga retreats. Beach and reef surrounding the island so swimming and snorkeling is possible as well as excursions, diving, etc.
There are yoga classes offered in Male to residents (usually through private instructors) and I believe the Indian Cultural Centre offers complimentary classes.
I would also guess that some guesthouses (the ones targeted at foreign tourists and maybe co-run by expats) may also offer yoga.
