Sun Siyam Iru Veli Set to Celebrate International Yoga Day with Renowned Yogi, Yujin

Sun Siyam Iru Veli announces a special celebration for International Yoga Day featuring the esteemed yogi, Yujin, from Korea. From June 21st to June 23rd, Yujin will offer exclusive yoga classes at Sun Siyam Iru Veli. During this time period, guests can enjoy sunrise and sunset sessions as well. This is the perfect opportunity to embrace the tranquillity of the Maldivian surroundings while deepening your yoga practices.

Yujin’s Yoga Journey

Yujin’s profound connection to yoga began in her 20s following a life-altering motorbike accident. Yoga became her anchor during recovery, leading her to explore various styles such as Yin, Vinyasa, and Hatha. Her passion for Ashtanga yoga was ignited in Athens, Greece, propelling her to delve deeper into her practice under influential teachers in Beograd, Mexico, the USA, and her home country, South Korea.

Later in 2021, she realised her dream by opening her own yoga studio. Settling up on the serene shores of Jeju island, her commitment extended further in 2023. Her yoga journey led her to the esteemed Sharath Yoga Centre in Mysore, India, in December 2023. Here she further immersed herself in the essence of yoga.

Guests are invited to join her on the mat to explore their own inner strength and serenity. This could be the opportunity to experience firsthand the deep impact of yoga on their lives. As the founder of Nyasa Yoga Shala and fluent in English with great teaching skills, Yujin offers a variety of yoga styles. This includes Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Hatha Flow Yoga, Yin Yoga, Meditation, and Singing Bowl sessions.

We are honored to welcme Yujin to Sun Siyam Iru Veli for our International Yoga Day celebration. Her dedication to yoga and profound teaching skills align perfectly with our commitment to providing guests with transformative experiences in our idyllic tropical paradise, says Masdhooq Saeed, General Manager of Sun Siyam Iru Veli.

International Yoga Day, observed worldwide on June 21st, is a testament to the transformative power of yoga in promoting holistic well-being. Against the backdrop of Sun Siyam Iru Veli’s serene shores, guests will have the opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery and inner peace through the practice of yoga. Sun Siyam Iru Veli is constantly committed to making the guest experience better. In addition to the yoga experiences, the resort also recently introduced floating delights & private lagoon breakfast experiences!
