TWIST IN THE WIND

Maldives

  • Find inner tranquility at a sunset yoga class in an open-air thatched roof pavilion
  • Calm your morning mind with sunrise yoga that changes the whole day’s perspective




Seven ocean hues, seven body chakras. Though you may be full of excuses to skip yoga back home, you won’t want to miss Sunset Yoga with Manesh Johny, the Conrad Maldives’ longtime Keralan yogi. His 6:30 p.m. class in the open-air thatched roof pavilion at the Over Water Spa ensures one hour every day entirely dedicated to inner tranquillity, the ultimate purpose of your Maldives holiday. Manesh himself calls this outdoor yoga shala “incredibly spiritual” and adapts each class to its participants, incorporating his own takes on Flow, Hatha, and Vinyasa yoga. When it comes to calming our minds, nothing beats breathing out as the dusk sky blushes and the sun sinks gently beneath the darkening horizon. If you loved sunset, we suggest trying his 6:30 a.m. Sunrise Yoga class too. It’ll change your perspective on the whole day.
