21 January, 2020
Coco Bodu Hithi is set to launch the first floating yoga studio in the Maldives in collaboration with AquaX Academy from Beijing, China. Founded by lululemon China Ambassador Queenie Xiao, the academy is a pioneer of innovative water sports and the first to introduce a floating studio concept in China..
Using stand-up paddle boards in the pristine lagoon of the island, recreational stand up paddle classes and floating yoga classes will be made available to guests at Coco Bodu Hithi beginning in March 2020.
Floating yoga, also known as stand-up paddleboard yoga, is an increasingly popular fitness activity. As with regular yoga, floating yoga utilizes the principles of balance, strength, flexibility, and meditation. The practice of floating yoga allows guests to embrace the benefit of yoga in nature, while also participating in an invigorating and unique workout by constantly finding balance on the moving water.
Shafa Shabeer, the Director of Marketing for Coco Bodu Hithi, said about the collaboration, “We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with AquaX Academy to launch the very first floating fitness studio in the Maldives, as they are leaders in the fitness industry. This will be an exciting experience for our guests, where they can enjoy our beautiful waters in a new way.”
As part of this collaboration, Coco Bodu Hithi will also be hosting a four-day SUP- yoga retreat led by elite instructors from AquaX Academy as part of the “Ocean Sweat Life” SUP retreat program advocated by Queenie and her fellow lululemon ambassadors who share the love for ocean and fit-living lifestyle . The retreat will take place from 15th – 19th March and will include regular yoga classes as well as introductory Stand-up paddling and floating yoga sessions in the sea.
Queenie said about this exciting new program, “I believe that bringing workout to water is an exercise regime change which makes our members happier. The challenge-seeking active society is looking forward to extending their practice to nature, in which we are excited to take the lead.”
Coco Bodu Hithi
Best Experience: Couples, Beach, Diving
Part of Coco Collection, luxurious and contemporary, with superb private pool villas and an idyllic overwater spa, the island paradise of Coco Bodu Hithi is located in North Male Atoll and is a 40-minute speedboat ride away from Malé International Airport. Even in low season, Coco Bodu Hithi has a very high occupancy rate. Opened in 2005, with its fabulous atmosphere this modern, romantic 5-star resort undoubtedly makes an impression on couples and so popular because it is reasonably priced and is elegantly modern yet distinctly Maldivian. There are 100 villas (44 on the sand, 66 over the water), and each comes with its own small pool and outdoor shower, not to mention the design of the indoor bath, and the Nespresso coffee maker. There are six chic restaurants, two open air cocktail bars, extensive thatched overwater spa and a fitness center (with ocean views!). An uncrowded infinity swimming pool and a large selection of activities, including scuba diving and snorkeling in the lagoon. Despite all these facilities, guests - especially at night - tend to seek privacy in a private getaway, possibly with a bottle from Wine Loft. The resort is 45 minutes by speedboat from Malé airport; those who prefer to be closer must check Taj Exotica, just 15 minutes by boat. Read Full Review...
