It is the perfect place to re-set and restore with yoga, a richness of marine life and wild life, delicious fresh and healthful foods, and the opportunity to deepen your practice in ways that you'll take home and carry on well after the trip itself. Daily yoga, meditation, exploring beautiful beaches, SUP, snorkeling and scuba diving for those interested.
