Anantara Maldives is a resort that is aimed at guests who want to incorporate health and wellness as an integral part of their holiday. It has a series of activities in the Maldives, including over-water aerial yoga, beach meditation, surf lessons and ayurvedic spa treatments. Using the sky, the sea and the beach, Anantara wants to improve their guest’s fitness regime and revitalise the body.
Over Water Aerial Yoga
Using safe yoga hammocks guests can be suspended a few feet above the water in the Maldives. Specifically, this takes place above the lagoon surrounding Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas. Combined with the sounds of the Indian Ocean, this provides an ideal setting. This type of yoga aims to combat fatigue and joint pain, as well as stimulating blood circulation, relieving back pain and strengthening the core. This is all with the help of experienced yoga specialists for both adults and children.
