Yoga seeks to unite the body, mind, and spirit. It’s also one of the best stress-busting workouts for brides. As the popularity of this ancient practice grows, innovative offerings are popping up at hotels around the world. Even if you aren’t into traditional asana, you’ve got to admit that Aroma Flow and Aqua Vida sounds pretty awesome.
In celebration of National Yoga Month, we are rounding up the coolest classes from Arizona to the Maldives.
Swing Salutation at Park Hyatt Aviara, San Diego
Fans of backhands and Bālāsana will love Swing Salutation, the latest wellness program at Park Hyatt Aviara. The 90-minute experience splits time between yoga and tennis. It starts with intention setting and stretching, followed by swing techniques and targeted strengthening exercises. Mats, rackets, balls, and H20 are all included.
Underwater Yoga at Hurawalhi Island resort, Maldives
Perhaps you’ve noticed we have a penchant for Neptunian pursuits—whether staying in submerged suites or perfecting tree pose beneath the waves. Hurawalhi Island resort holds serenity-inducing sessions in the all-glass undersea restaurant turned yoga studio. Guests flow alongside tropical fish and reef sharks floating by in the crystal-clear tides.

Aqua Vida at AKA University City, Philadelphia
AKA University City is home to Level 28, a members-only lifestyle club that’s also accessible to hotel guests. Its crown jewel is a 75-foot infinity pool with commanding views of the Philadelphia skyline. At sunset, yogis mount stand-up paddle boards for core-strengthening Aqua Vida.
