Matsyasana in the Maldives

W Retreat - Tara Stiles yoga

Sun salutations to everyone on International Yoga Day. The Maldives legendary tranquillity has made yoga increasingly popular in this Chidanand land.

Nearly every resort will have a yoga master on hand. My very first yoga session ever was a sunrise session during our stay at Four Seasons Kuda Huraa. Now, Lori and I take a weekly yoga lesson (in fact, we will have a timely session tonight) and Lori has even started doing special yoga holidays herself. I suspect you will see us on the matt at sunrise and sunset during our upcoming tour of the Maldives.

The idyllic surroundings have attracted top yoga practitioners from around the world. In celebration of the day, I have assembled a top twenty collection of some slightly more advanced poses than your typical Fish pose (Matsyasana)…
