Undisturbed by the troubles of the outside world, guests can get back to their roots with a unique indsolo yoga programme including therapeutic classes, mindfulness and meditation, aimed at reaching the entranced state of yoga nidra and tutoring in the yogic art of breathing, Pyanayama.
Langkawi, a tropical island situated in Malaysia's archipelago and rising from the azure Andaman Sea, is steeped in myths and mystery. With virgin forests, waterfalls and an 8,000 year old coral reef at its feet, The Andaman helps to ground guests and emphasise the simple pleasures of life, against a stunning natural setting, yet with guest rooms offering seclusion and comfort in the utmost luxury.
Headed up by renowned Nepali-born yoga master Ekrah Gajurel, whose fans include Sting and the Prince of Jodhpur, The Andaman offers guests an unparalleled yoga retreat in a breath-taking environment.
From morning til night, be it Sunrise Yoga or Sunset Meditation, guests can partake in stretching the body and mind alfresco on The Andaman's unique Stars Platform, overlooking the tranquil waters of the Datai Bay. A yoga master is on hand to curate a tailored, personal programme that caters to individual needs, from holistic therapies to integrated yoga practices. Classes take care of aches and pains by developing strength, flexibility and balance whilst reducing stress through enhancing mental awareness with meditation techniques.
For guests wishing to turn their health around, the resort's V Botanical Spa operates a full detox plan designed to nourish the body with a juice cleanse complete with dedicated super-antioxidant supplements and a holistic lifestyle consultation.
