Four Seasons Resort Maldives is the first resort in Asia to offer Christopher Harrison’s groundbreaking and gravity-defying yoga technique. The Four Seasons Resort has built an impressive hexagonal yoga pavilion – in a private jungle clearing – dedicated to The AntiGravity Experience.
The creator and founder of this yoga, fitness, and entertainment brand, AntiGravity, is Christopher Harrison.
In addition to his yoga and fitness techniques, Harrison has created entertainment productions from the Olympics, to Broadway to Disney Films. AntiGravity also performed at the Inauguration of President Obama. AntiGravity’s headquarters and Advanced Teacher Training Institute is currently situated in midtown Manhattan with a branch also in Chiang Mai, Thailand and a dedicated theater in Orlando, FL.
The Harrison AntiGravity Hammocks are utilized to allow the participants to perform zero-compression inverted asanas, relieving the body of all its compression strains while releasing a wave of happy hormones. Recommendations and high praise has been received from people of all ages, body types and abilities who appreciate both the therapeutic nature and the sensation of flying.
“AntiGravity Yoga is new, exciting, incredibly beneficial, and aligns perfectly with the Landaa philosophy,” explains the Resort’s Director of Spa Sandie Johannessen. “In our constant pursuit for youth, it’s a great way to have fun while working out – leaving you feeling both powerful and fabulous. It’s a great way to get the kinks out after a long flight and the relaxation meditation at the end of the practice, cocooned in the hammock, is pure bliss.”
To accommodate the spa and resort industry, Harrison has created special class designs that embody an AntiGravity Experience accessible to everyone. “It is about reconnecting the body and mind, and rediscovering balance – a process that is accelerated by the incredible natural surrounds of Landaa Giraavaru,” says Christopher Harrison, who personally travelled to the Resort to train its yogis.
Rediscovering and exploring wellness is what the facility is all about, and the award-winning Ayurvedic Retreat and Spa of The Four Seasons, according to spa designer Luisa Anderson, is providing new wings for the exploration of the dynamics of wellbeing.
