Full Description

I am VERY excited to announce my plans for this year's yoga intensive. It will take place at the Barefoot Eco Resort in the Maldives from November 26th to December 3rd 2016 A brand new 4 star eco hotel with seaside apartments just a few steps from the Indian Ocean. A half mile private sandy beach and a turquoise lagoon frame the hotel. It has its own yoga studio, swimming pool, spa and diving centre.
As with last year's holiday, I will be supported by Sarah Constantinides, a lovely teacher from Somerset. There will be two yoga classes a day, the morning lasting for 2 to 2.5 hours and the evening class for 1.5 hours. The evening will be a relaxing class focussing on restorative poses and pranayama (deeply relaxing and rejuvenating breath work). As I write this I am coming to the end of my month long stay in India and I am looking forward to sharing the learning I have received here. A yoga holiday is a fantastic way to deepen and progress your yoga practice – the combination of yoga, sunshine, swimming and good food is magical. The holiday is suitable for people holidaying alone (many people opt for this and there are group activities for those who wish to join in) and for couples (non-yoga partners just pay for the holiday, not the yoga tuition).
We have managed to negotiate an excellent deal with the hotel so the complete cost of the holiday including 2 yoga classes per day, half board, shared triple beachside room, transfer from Male Airport to our island of Hanimadhoo and all local taxes is just £850 (excluding the international flight, currently less than £500) The hotel are very flexible with the arrangements so if you want extra nights, full board, single room etc just ask and we'll let you know what the cost will be.
In addition to the above, the hotel provides complimentary welcome drink, free daily activities such as volleyball, snorkelling by dhoni with the marine biologist on the house reef, bikes for adults and children, seawater swimming-pool, fully equipped gym, canoes, library, board games, telescope, biology lectures, test of underwater respiration, free Wi-Fi connection available throughout the resort including all room categories. Sun beds, shade umbrellas and beach towels for all guest rooms.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about any aspect of the holiday, including the yoga itself.
