Eleanor Kundalini QueenEleanor came across Kundalini Yoga in 2008 and fell in love with the practice straight away. What she found was beyond her imagination: an entire system of powerful and practical tools to align the body, mind and spirit; to feel connected and energised and to be able to live a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
Her aspiration as a teacher is to hold a nurturing space where students can work through their blocks and open up to an experience of their true potential, coming home to the wisdom, strength and beauty that lives within.
“Kundalini Yoga has transformed my life beyond measure and brought me a sense of peace, joy and vitality that I didn’t know was possible. I’m excited to share this incredible practice with you and support you in being more you.”
KATE – FOUNDER AND HOST “Doing gymnastics for 11 years taught me discipline, respect, balance, confidence and so much more. I achieved my dreams because I was willing to work hard and conquer my fears. You barely get things right first time, that’s why in gymnastics we use mats… and it’s only by falling that you will get stronger
I choose a career in an industry that I love this means I enjoy going to work. As a manager I have the responsibility to create an environment for others that inspires and grows them and this gives me each day a new challenge and a new sense of achievement. ”
MATHEEN – MADI FINOLHU OWNER Matheen Takes excellent care of you while you are on the island. Makes sure everything works and runs smoothly as well as being a master tour guide of the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll.
“I am passionate about mother nature and all her critters and creatures and welcoming guests to my home Island Maahlos and touring them around the best spots to see all that Maldives has to offer. I also really enjoy sharing a good story in the shade of an coconut tree.”

PAIGE – SUN KISSED YOGI Paige – Backbend Beach
Paige first discovered the emotional healing benefits of yoga after struggling with an eating disorder, anxiety and depression. Searching for a better alternative to medications that she had been using to treat her symptoms, she instead decided to treat the issues that were causing them. While building her inner strength, she noticed she body was getting stronger as well.
“One thing I would love to tell the world is that happiness is a choice, whether you believe you deserve to be truly happy or not it is a choice, not a right, the world doesn’t do things to us, the world does things for and because of us.
Kundalini Yoga is a powerful and holistic system of well-being which combines asana (posture), pranayam (breath) mantra (sound) and meditation to align, balance and uplift the mind, body and soul.
Our physical body is rebooted and revitalised, our mind is cleansed and clarified, our soul is nourished and uplifted. As we work through our blocks, release our stress and transform our fears, we start to be more of who we really are, coming home to ourselves and opening up to greater peace, joy and connection.
“Make yourself so happy, that by looking at you, other people become happy.” ― Yogi Bhajan
