ELE|NA celebrates International Day of Yoga in Maldives

ELE|NA has celebrated the 10th International Day of Yoga, held across its picturesque locations in the Maldives. This year’s theme, “Yoga for Self and Society,” underscores the profound impact yoga has on individual well-being and the broader community. ELE|NA believes that fostering a culture of wellness extends beyond guests to dedicated staff, making it a part of our everyday actions and community life.

In the Maldives, ELE|NA locations have come alive with various yoga activities designed to cater to both novices and seasoned practitioners. Each session is thoughtfully crafted to align with this year’s theme, emphasising how yoga can enhance personal health and contribute to societal well-being.

As part of the celebrations, ELE|NA at OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi had the honour of hosting members of the Cancer Society Maldives for a serene morning yoga session followed by a healthy breakfast. This event highlighted the holistic benefits of yoga, emphasising its role in promoting physical, mental, and emotional health, especially for those facing health challenges.
