To get there you need to take a boat - it's about a 15 minute sail to Paradise Island, and the view on approach is calming and settling - the bright colours on the deck brings some zen almost immediately:
The approach to Sivananda
The cost of a day visit was $10 - pretty cheap - they had a two hour class on the yoga deck facing the beach side - man - the view of the blue waters was spectacular.
We did a two hour yoga class but as it was for advanced people, I totally sucked - some of these guys were moving from "shoulder stand" to "bridge" to "shoulder stand" and then "scorpion" - in yoga lingo in translates to super difficult for Stevo!
To the right of the retreat is the amazing "Atlantis" - ummmm - this place is too big for it's own good!!!
Here a some other pics from my Nassau trip:
Some weird gizmo lighting at the Casino at Coral Towers - Atlantis
The village at Atlantis (Coral Towers) has a number of cool restaurants serving local fare and of course there's a Starbucks everywhere. Vintage calypso, and Caribbean colours graces the Caribbean-style designed shops and gives it a true island feel!
Sivananda - view from the dock!
Me - lounging with my iPod - waiting for my seminar on yogic diet (I was thinking at this point I need some pizza!). Followed by a 2-hour practise on the yoga beach deck!
Anyways peeps - TTYL!
