The Standard Maldives is Bringing the SEVA Experience for International Women’s Day

The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives has partnered with the Middle East-based wellness centre, SEVA Experience, to bring its leading yoga, meditation and holistic program to the beautiful Maldivian blues from 7th March to 11th March.

SEVA, one of the leading Yoga, Meditation and holistic wellness centres in the Middle East, was founded to encourage deep reflection and acknowledge life’s journey through a range of multifaceted practices. The space provides a sanctuary for the conscious traveller and offers learning opportunities for those who want to restore balance in their daily life.


Located on Huruvalhi Island in the Raa Atoll, The Standard, Maldives’ 360° white sand beaches and crystal-clear lagoon offer the perfect backdrop to facilitate such a journey. The Standard, Maldives has a strong wellness offering of daily yoga and meditation and the partnership with SEVA elevates this offering.

Hosted by SEVA founder Eda, SEVA Table Head Chef Kiki and The Standard, Maldives resident Yogi Karan, the five-day takeover is overflowing with a range of yoga, meditation and breathwork exercises as well as an abundant menu curated by SEVA Table, the Middle East’s award-winning first plant-based café. SEVA Table will take over the Joos café offering sustainable holistic eats for the duration of the partnership.

Highlights include ‘Kundalini In The Dark’, a full moon glow-in-the-dark yoga and meditation class and an International Women’s Day chanting masterclass that celebrates and honours women through the connection between the body and feminine power, both hosted by Eda. Guests can also expect a unique cacao ceremony that combines two different cultures and traditions to not only open the heart but also deep cleanse our system at The Standard Maldives Hammam Studio, followed by daily nourishing boosts at the Tonic Bar. 

“We have tailored an incredibly unique takeover in one of the most beautiful places in the world……, move, breath, chant, meditate, dance to let go of whatever is not serving you, and manifest a brand new reality.” Said Eda, the Founder of SEVA.
