This week we discover a new dance workout, unwind with a winter spa session and tidy up our tired eyes.
While it may be the season for stuffing your face, these next two weeks are by no means the time to ease off on your fitness regime. Keep things interesting this winter with MPDS’s (04 430 3693) new pole ballet classes, which take place at the JLT studio and combine the grace of ballet with the body impact of a pole workout. Classes take place on Sundays at 7pm, with prices ranging up to Dhs100.
Looking for a way to unwind on your day off this holiday period? Head over to Club Olympus at the Hyatt Regency in Deira (04 209 6802) for the 100-minute Winter Relaxing treatment, which battles dry skin brought on by cooler, drier weather conditions and weary limbs with a hot Thai herbal compress, aromatherapeutic massage oils and a mini-facial, all for Dhs700.
Of course, not everyone gets time off in December and January, so if you’re suffering the effects of a slave-driving boss, pick yourself up a bottle of Lush’s (www.lush.ae) new Enchanted Eye Cream, which promises to calm and soothe the delicate area, minimising fine lines, reducing dark bags and making you look like you’ve just woken up from a full night’s sleep, even if the reality is that you’ve been a slave to emails and deadlines from dusk until dawn.
Finally, if you’re feeling festively flabby, get down to Anantara Spa at the hotel on the Palm (04 567 8140), which is offering a range of slimming and contouring treatments. Not a moment too soon!
