Book in for a little weekend chill at Le Meridien Dubai
New Year, new you… we’ve all heard it thousands of times. Fear not, though, if you fail to stick to any kind of routine this month (we’re not here to judge). Kick start your healthy lifestyle in February instead with a two-day yoga retreat, right here in Dubai. Here’s what you have to look forward to.
It’s all-inclusive Run by the Natural Elements Spa & Fitness Centre at Le Méridien Dubai Hotel and Conference Centre in Garhoud, the retreat includes “yogic meals” (all healthy and tasty) and a massage to ease aching limbs after all those planks and cobras (trust us, you’ll need it).
The focus is on technique This retreat is led by instructor Lynda Johns and offers two days of yoga, pranayama (yogic breathing), meditation and sessions on yogic philosophy, which are enlightening and inspiring, too.
You’ll leave feeling revived We were at the inaugural retreat in September last year and came away refreshed, relaxed and considerably more confident in practising yoga. Make the most of the downtime by the pool.
Dhs1,299 (excluding room), Dhs2,499 (including one nights’ stay). Feb 3-4. Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Garhoud (04 702 2430).
