This week: DIY laser hair removal, new yoga classes in Old Dubai and a free yoga masterclass and freebies with Oysho.
Previously resigned to professional use only, laser hair removal can now be done in the comfort of your own home with the launch of the Tria Hair Removal Laser Precision (04 374 6950). The DIY gadget for women wanting silky, hair-free skin is ideal for use on smaller, more sensitive areas of the body, such as underarms and bikini line, using advanced diode laser technology to permanently disable hair follicles. It’s appropriate for use on light to medium skin tones and recommended use is every two weeks for at least three months to see the best results. It costs Dhs1,650.
Meanwhile, new Purna yoga classes (firstname.lastname@example.org) have launched in Old Dubai’s Al Warqaa 3 under the tutelage of Aussie instructor Lee-anne Mullins. All levels are welcome to the classes, which take a holistic and complete approach to the practise, and promise to leave you feeling relaxed and revived. Sessions are Dhs75 each or Dhs650 for a package of ten classes with no time limit.
Lastly, while we’re on the subject of mastering the art of zen, lingerie brand Oysho (04 339 8280) is hosting a yoga day on Saturday November 15, where from 10am to 1pm, anyone can turn up to participate in a free masterclass at an outdoor location at the scenic SkyDive Dubai. Participants will receive a branded yoga mat and T-shirt on arrival and there will be stalls offering freshly squeezed juice and offerings from French café Paul.
