This week: get trendy new yoga kit, good news for Rawr Yoga regulars plus get your hands on O’right products.
Looking for stylish yoga kit to set you apart from your fellow downward doggers? Yogis with a conscience should head to Stadium Sports (04 434 0641) to purchase an eco-yoga jute mat and bamboo block by UK brand Carrot Banana Peach. The 3.5mm thick mat easily rolls away into the pocket yoga bag and has a natural textured feeling making it both soft and easy to grip, while the bamboo block is hollowed out and both light and sturdy with comfortable curved edges.
While we’re on the topic, regulars of Dubai Media City bikram yoga venue Rawr Yoga (04 423 2808) who have been struggling to cope with the parking restrictions can now valet their cars at Concord Tower for just Dhs10 for two hours 30 minutes during classes, seven days a week. Mention valet parking at the gate and don’t forget to get your ticket stamped at reception to guarantee the rate.
Lastly, US organic hair-care brand O’right (04 385 0442), whose ingredients are manufactured using reclaimed water, solar power and wind energy, is now available in Dubai for the first time. As well as being the world’s first shampoo to be certified as ‘carbon neutral’, the innovative packaging is made from biodegradeable materials printed with soy ink and infused with seeds that grow into trees and flowers when the packaging breaks down. Cool.
