Mirihi Island announces yoga retreat for solo travellers with prominent yogi Claudia Geux
Mirihi Island Maldives has partnered with Claudia Geux, one of the most experienced yoga instructors in Europe, to offer solo travellers an exclusive yoga and meditation retreat.
During the retreat, which runs from December 3-10, Mirihi Island’s aspiring yogis will be invited to start the day against the backdrop of the rising sun with an energising yoga session led by Claudia. Come evening, guests will align their senses with Claudia’s meditation session, where individuals can balance and synchronise their mind, body and soul through chanting and breathing techniques.
For those with specific targets, there is also the option of payable private sessions which can be booked and tailored to an individual’s ability, preferences and interests.
Zurich native Claudia discovered a passion for the ancient practice of yoga while travelling in New Zealand several years ago. Over time, her preferred yoga style has emerged as Vinyasa Flow; meaning classes are taught in a flowing and creative way, accompanied by calming, tranquil music.
The yoga and meditation retreat costs USD 4,890 per person. The price is inclusive of taxes, and includes accommodation in a water villa on half-board basis, daily yoga and meditation, and return seaplane transfers.
“With the exclusive island destination removing the single supplement from all villas during this period and offering yoga and meditation daily, it is the ideal time for solo travellers craving a winter ‘digital-detox’ to visit. The retreat, which includes half board, will appeal to those in search of a hassle-free holiday,” an announcement by the resort read.
“The yoga and meditation retreat is back by popular demand following two successful retreats in 2016 and early 2017, and with solo travel set to become one of 2018’s biggest travel trends, Mirihi Island is now paving the way for guests who want to travel by themselves.”
The resort has, meanwhile, extended its Solo Travel offer until December 20, following an impressive number of solo traveller bookings during the summer period.
Located in the South Ari Atoll, Mirihi Island is an intimate resort with only 37 rooms, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff. Guests will immediately feel at ease in the safe and beautiful environment. With sand covered floors throughout much of the hotel, guests can relax upon arrival where they will be encouraged to abandon their shoes and enjoy their stay barefoot with the powder-soft sand between their toes.
Travellers looking to socialise and meet like-minded people can book sunset sailing trips, whale shark safaris, diving trips, visits to local islands, sessions tasting the most comprehensive selection of fine rum in the whole of the Indian Ocean, and can enjoy complimentary weekly beach cinemas, board games, table tennis, football and more.
Alternatively, guests can enjoy some time away from it all in their private water or beach villa, on a secluded beach or while enjoying a pampering spa treatment.
