Yoga at Crystal Bay Marina
Yoga can be a wonderful way of enhancing a relaxing vacation here at Joya Cyprus. Whether you are a seasoned yogi or would simply like to try yoga out during the privacy of your holiday, we have the class for you. Our Hatha Yoga instructor can teach classes for all levels to improve your flexibility, strength, focus and overall wellbeing. With the addition of empowering sun salutations in many classes you will find yourself feeling balanced, calm and leaving with a renewed sense of purpose. The classes are held in the lounge room next to the Joya restaurant at 10am on Weds and Saturday mornings. Fully air conditioned, classes also include calming aroma oils, a final relaxation period and a daily-angel card message for all who attend. Private lessons for 2 or more people out of schedule can be arranged with our main office on the Crystal Bay Marina resort. We do have mats, but ask that you bring your own if you have a favourite one. Only non-slip mats will be used.
