The story behind “Relax, Reset and Evolve.

In 2016, Nick was working long, hard hours and was burnt out. It’d taken an effect on his mental and physical health so he decided to try something he’d never done before – to slow down, relax, learn yoga and eat better. He filmed a documentary series called ‘The Retreat’ where he met international yoga instructor Luke Bache. Luke and the retreat helped Nick reset his way of living and he rapidly felt the profound benefits in his body and mind. Nick and Luke quickly formed a bond and over many coconuts and vegetarian dinners, they decided to hold their own retreat – to share their passion and enthusiasm of a peaceful, healthy lifestyle and headspace.

Relax, Reset and Evolve was born – held exclusively here at Kandima Maldives!

Whether you’re a total beginner or a seasoned yogi, this week long programme will redefine your way of living. Enjoy total relaxation where our natural tropical oasis meets white sands and our crystal clear lagoon.

Learn the art of mastering a work-life balance that is vital to our physical and mental well-being. Spend a week on yourself, in the peace and tranquility of the Indian Ocean and allow Nick and Luke to not only inspire the changes needed in your life but to give you the tools to create new habits that will continue into your future.
