Milaidhoo has launched Breathwork workshops and practices, the art of breathing, at the island’s Serenity Spa.

The brand-new guided breathing sessions are an opportunity to pause, relax and enable you to forget about daily stresses and routine, assisting to revive your mind and senses.

You’ve probably heard that controlling your breathing, and practicing mindfulness are great ways to beat stress. But what does that really mean? How does a mindful breath help you psychologically and biologically?

Breathwork has rapidly become a global wellness trend and studies suggest that six weeks of practising Pranayamic breathing, the ancient practice of breath control used in yoga, has a proven positive effect on heart rate, stress levels and improving cognitive function and anxiety.

Stemming from the Indian school of Ashtanga yoga, Pranayama uses breathing techniques to clear and calm the mind and allow breath and ‘prana’ (‘life force’) to flow freely.

Milaidhoo is excited to incorporate breathwork into their wellness offering and introduce these transformative teachings to their guests.

Through bespoke workshops and practices, guests will learn how to control their breath, resulting not only in the enhancement of Yoga practice but a range of health benefits including relaxation, reducing anxiety and improving blood circulation.

Guided by Milaidhoo’s resident Yogi Shubh, each technique has been thoughtfully designed to help participants understand and learn to control their breathing in order to release any built up physical and psychological tension.

Born in Rishikesh, the birthplace of Yoga in the foothills of the Himalayas where culture is centred around a core Yogic way of life, the art of Yoga is deep-rooted within Shubh’s upbringing.

Fortunate to learn the ancient teachings at his local Ashram in the spiritual surroundings of the Ganges River, Shubh pursued this passion further, trained in different Yoga schools and worked as a qualified yoga teacher before achieving his Master’s degree in Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Patanjali Yoga and Reki Healing.

Moving to the Maldives, Shubh embraces the natural harmony and beauty of the islands and finds them to be the perfect backdrop to deepen and advance breathing and yoga techniques: “The Maldives is a naturally beautiful destination offering a very calm and peaceful atmosphere which enhances breathwork. Here, you truly have time to slow down and focus on the core elements of breathing and being present as you are free of everyday life’s distractions.”

The programme, consisting of workshops and practices, is aimed towards guests interested in learning how the mind and body are interconnected, keen to improve the capacity of their lungs and understand how to use breath as a coping mechanism.

Through a combination of high and low intensity breathwork removing negative feelings of anxiety and strengthening the respiratory system, participants will leave with mental clarity and inner peace.

Arranged on a request basis, private single and couple breathing workshops can take place in the traditional thatched-roof suites of the over-water Serenity Spa.

After a full day snorkelling amongst coral reefs or exploring the tropical surroundings, an evening practice is the perfect way to truly unwind in preparation for a restful and deep night’s sleep.

Breathing skills developed at Milaidhoo will stay with guests long beyond their trip and can be easily practiced at home.

The development of self-awareness and self-control through breathing can also help guests to overcome stressful and challenging situations in their own daily life.

In addition to the psychological benefits gained from breathwork, a stay at Milaidhoo offers the perfect setting for a stress-free tropical escape.
