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."
