For the last few weeks I have started going to Yoga at Raffles hotel Praslin. I’m just going once a week right now but I am loving it.
The location is incredible.
You come down these beautiful steps to the spa.
Then head into the yoga studio. Take a look at that view!! You can hear the waves crashing too, it’s amazing.
The instructor is brilliant. She has a great vibe about her without being a crazy yoga lady. The class has varied each week, always good to keep it interesting!
The first class I went to was really relaxing with lots of stretching. It was lovely, that night I was so relaxed I fell asleep on the sofa, even earlier than usual!
But my favourite classes are the ones where there’s been lots of strength building and I’ve been really aching afterwards! I like to know that I’ve worked hard and this class has definitely left me feeling that way!
I’ve always loved yoga, but have tended to do it at home. It’s been great to go to a class and experience it in such a different way.
Our instructor likes to use essential oils, it’s not something I would ever consider but it actually does add something special!
Another added benefit of actually going to a class is that it gives me a real break, some real ‘me time’. I think it’s really important to be able to get that time to myself. It’s also nice for Mark to get some time with the boys on his own too!
I started running again (more on that soon) in October, when Freddie was about 10 weeks old. I’m finding that yoga really is the perfect companion to running in helping me regain my figure and my fitness after having Freddie!
I feel so lucky to have access to such a great class in a beautiful location. Another amazing perk of our expat lives here in Seychelles.
