I absolutely loved the classes here and went almost every day for a month. They take place in a stilted wooden treehouse in a lush tropical garden with the sea in front and the jungle covered mountains behind. The sounds of the waves, chirping birds, and rustling bamboo helped calm my mind and hold the most difficult poses, and I always came away ultra relaxed.
Farra is originally from Oklahoma and has a wonderful soothing voice and positive attitude. She's down to earth and encouraging, giving you the option of more challenging poses but reminding you to listen to your body and takes breaks if you need to.
There are usually a couple of classes a day, more in the high season. Sunset Stretch is a gentle hatha class suitable for beginners; the Flow class is more energetic but Farra gives options for different ability levels; Mona's power yoga class is a definite challenge but fun; and her Yin class is very gentle with deep stretches that you hold for 3-5 minutes—it's as much about calming the mind and being still as it is about stretching. It was my first Yin class and I found it really helped my hips which were stiff from running.
They are closed in May and June 2014 but reopen in July. Highly recommended whether you are new to yoga or an experienced yogi.
