A 200 hours yin yoga therapy teacher training course will be held in the Maldives for the first time in September 2021.

Hosted in Fulidhoo Island in Vaavu Atoll at a local beachside guesthouse, the four-week course will be taught by Alexandra Denkinger, founder of The Body-Mind-Soul Centre in Goa. The course is Yoga Alliance accredited and successful participants will leave as certified yoga teachers. For those who would like to join a shorter course, a 100 hours, two-week option is also available.

Yin Yoga focuses on balance – physically, energetically, and mentally. In this teacher training, you’ll get the practice and all the knowledge to start teaching with a focus on this style of yoga. Students will leave with an understanding of the theory behind the practice and the confidence to lead a yin yoga therapy class.

Whether you’re an experienced yoga teacher looking to branch into yin yoga, or whether you’re still at the beginning of your yoga journey, this course is open for everyone.

“Yin Yoga creates an opportunity to release physical and emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy and cultivate a peaceful quality of mind,” explains Denkinger, “We’ll put you on the path to acquire the knowledge, the practical experience and confidence to earn the certificate and share this wisdom.”

This is an incredible opportunity for those looking to gain a solid foundation and understanding of yin yoga here in the Maldives. Usually these courses are hosted in India, Sri Lanka and Bali but due to current travel restrictions, the Maldives has become the perfect choice!

Course participant Adele Verdier said.

The 200 hours course begins on 31st August 2021 and runs through until 25th September 2021. The 100 hours course begins on 6th September 2021 and runs through until 18th September 2021.

Francesco Totti Lights up Siyam World Football Camp

Following Wayne’s lead was the legendary Francesco Totti, lighting up Siyam World for a second time as well. He visited from 28th March to 4th April. Totti is known for his flair and loyalty to AS Roma. He brought a touch of Italian passion to the Maldives, teaching participants the art of precision and creativity in football.

Throughout the action-packed week, participants savoured daily football sessions led by Owen, a team of UEFA-licensed coaches, and internet sensation Eman – popularly known as SV2 from his viral YouTube skills videos.

Dressed in their personalized Rascal training kits, young players aged from five to 15 seized the perfect opportunity to refine all aspects of their game, from tactics to technical skills. To add to the holiday experience, families enjoyed a memorable parents’ match, providing moms and dads with a chance to showcase their skills on the pitch.

He will be bringing the skills he learned whilst playing for West Ham, Manchester United and Leeds United plus the England national team. 

At Siyam World, we are undoubtedly a paradise for sports enthusiasts, offering exceptional facilities for both water and land sports. My passion for football, which began in childhood collection jerseys of football legends, is embodied in our FIFTA- regulation football field. We host many football aficionados, including owners of prized jerseys and past champions who still share a deep love for the game. Siyam World is where sportsmanship thrives, providing an unparalleled destination for active trave;ers, says Ausy Waseem – Resort Manager at Siyam World.
