Special sunset yoga session in Hurawalhi to mark Yoga Day

Hurawalhi Island Resort has held a special sunset yoga session to mark International Day of Yoga. The occasion, more commonly referred to as Yoda Day, is marked on June 21 annually.

Yoga is a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices or disciplines originating from ancient India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolising the union of body and consciousness. Many schools of yoga exist today and it is practised all over the world and popularity continues to increase.

The theme for the 2017 global celebration is ‘Yoga for Health’, which highlights the fact that yoga can contribute in a holistic way to achieving an equilibrium between mind and body.

To mark the day, Hurawalhi hosted a sunset Hatha Flow Yoga session, which was led by Indian Yogi Rohit and assisted by Candice Wilson, Duniye Spa Group Training Manager and Hurawalhi’s in-house Yogini and Sound Healer.

The day was concluded with a Himalayan sound healing meditation session, which was also conducted by Candice. According to the resort, both sessions were complimentary for all in-house guests.

Hurawalhi Island Resort, located on a private coral island on the northwestern edge of the Lhaviyani Atoll, nestled between the uninhabited and picture perfect island of Kudadoo on one side, and Kuredu Island Resort on the other is an adults-only island haven, home to the largest undersea restaurant in the world and offers 90 villas of which 60 are ocean villas and 30 Beach Villas.
