First 'floating fitness studio' set to launch at Maldives resort

Luxury resort Coco Bodu Hithi has revealed plans to launch the first "floating yoga studio" in the Maldives.

The resort is working with Beijing-based AquaX Academy – founded by lululemon China Ambassador Queenie Xiao – on the project, which looks to utilise the increasing popularity of floating yoga.

Floating yoga, also known as stand-up paddleboard yoga, utilises the principles of balance, strength, flexibility, and meditation.

The practice allows guests to embrace the benefit of yoga in nature, while also participating in a demanding workout by constantly finding balance on the moving water.

Coco Bodu Hith and The AquaX Academy academy – a pioneer of innovative water sports and the first to introduce a floating studio concept in China – will begin offering the classes in March 2020.

AquaX founder Queenie Xiao said: "I believe that bringing workouts 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."
