first_imgAmilla Fushi, on Baa Atoll in the Maldives, isn’t relying purely on its idyllic location to satisfy guests in the coming months – with something for tennis lovers and for yoga aficionados in the guise of Gypsy Bast, a leading figure in Bali and the international yoga world, and Aussie tennis legend Pat Rafter on hand at the resort for the edification of interested guests.Gypsy Bast will be at Javvu Spa in Amilla Fushi from 10 December 2017 until 14 February 2018 leading classes at Javuu Spa, beginning with a grounded Meditation and Dynamic Hatha Flow, and Pilates. Peace, softness and ease is cultivated and all levels of experience are welcome. At times, some classes will explore Somatic Movement and Restorative Yoga where the parasympathetic nervous system can be addressed and stress levels reduced in the nerve body. Classes will end with a slowing down and finish gently with Yoga Nidra relaxation.Gypsy has been teaching Yoga, Meditation and Pilates for over 20 years with a practice that evolves from backgrounds of dance, theatre, yoga, Pilates, and somatic movement therapies. She is known for her fun, uplifting attitude, and practises meditation, Yoga Nidra, and loves chanting mantras to connect to the Divine peace within all. She has also trained the Cirque du Soleil’s “Totem” and “Corteo” shows in Yoga and Pilates. Amilla Fushi has also teamed up with LUX Tennis to provide professional, personalised tennis coaching served with passion by current and former ATP players. Complementing its exceptional tennis facilities, including two palm-fringed, floodlit hard courts and a clubhouse offering complimentary equipment hire, Amilla now offers top-class tailored coaching, practice programmes and fun events to inspire and challenge guests of all abilities to improve their strokeplay.From 4-11 January 2018, tennis fans visiting Amilla Fushi will also have a unique opportunity to rally with former US Open Men’s Singles champion and World No. 1 Pat Rafter. As well as playing an exhibition match against the resort’s resident LUX Tennis Pro, Rafter will also play a one-on-one with the winner of Amilla’s festive tennis tournament for guests!
