Malta: the perfect yoga backdrop

Yoga Magazine, ORF TV’s dedicated yoga television programme in Austria, has chosen the Maltese Islands as the perfect yoga backdrop and is dedicating 10 stunning episodes to showcase precisely why there really is more to explore than meets the eye when visiting Malta.

The main focus of the series takes the viewer to the island of Gozo, with yoga exercise sessions taking place in the Marsalforn salt pans, Dwejra Bay, the Wied il-Mielaħ window and Calypso Cave, just to mention a few.

The Yoga Magazine series feature a host of guest yoga instructors including Nadine Brandl, a Cirque du Soleil performer and a synchronised swimming Olympian.

“We are proud to support Yoga Magazine for the second-time running as this show brings the beauty of our islands to a new audience, who might be prospective tourists in search of the perfect spot to unwind and take some time for themselves. These episodes also give an insight into the islands’ hidden gems, which we were more than happy to share with the audiences of ORF SPORT+. Once again, this collaboration is part of our strategy to holistically diversify our product, making it appealing to a wide variety of tourists,” said Carlo Micallef, Deputy CEO and CMO of the Malta Tourism Authority.

Yoga Magazine, produced and directed by Bernhard Rabl, airs every Friday on ORF SPORT+ at 08:00 with repetitions airing the following Saturdays and Sundays. Episodes are also available on demand at the ORF-TVthek.

Moreover, after the episodes are aired on ORF, MTA will receive the English version of the episodes available for broadcast, on TV and Social Media Channels.
