Float Utila

We are lucky to have an amazing Float Tank on our little island of Utila!  This is the perfect compliment to your yoga~

Not familiar with floating?

Floating in a flotation tank is a way of achieving extreme well-being. Essentially, you spend an hour or so lying quietly in the dark, suspended in a warm solution of Epsom salt about eleven inches (twenty-seven centimeters) deep and so dense that you float effortlessly.  Our unique flotation room is equipped with underwater speakers through which relaxing music can be played and a light inside if you choose to use it. Flotation tanks are also known as isolation tanks, salt water spas, sensory deprivation tanks, and REST chambers.Flotation REST, also known as floating, was developed in America. REST stands for Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy/Technique. You float in a salt water solution in a specially designed tank, which resembles a large, enclosed bathtub. The tank is built so that all outside distractions such as sight, sound, tactile sensations, and gravity are eliminated”

We are proud to be the largest flotation tank in the world.

Amanda (a regular with our yoga classes) and Jon are your hosts and have set up an amazing refuge with the float tank. Onsite is a beautiful shower and they provide towels.
