A great way to cleanse body and mind ahead of Ramadan…

One of the capital’s favourite houses of zen, Bodytree is hosting an ‘Overnight Yoga Retreat’ at the stunning dune-locked resort, Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa.

This wellness in the wilderness weekend will take place between Friday April 9 and Saturday April 10, just before the start of Ramadan (forecast to begin on April 12).

The resort is located just 45 minutes away from Abu Dhabi city centre, in the seclusion of the Al Wathba sands. And we’re struggling to think of a more appropriate backdrop for finding balance, than beneath a star-speckled sky, in the company of shifting dunes.

What price for inner serenity?

It’s Dhs1,620 if you book solo, or Dhs2,210 if you book as a couple (or pair of friends).

That includes your nama-stay, dinner, breakfast, and two 90-minute yoga and meditation journeys led by Bodytree’s expert yogis.

There are limited places and they’re expected to book up fast, so if you’re interested, you’ll need to RSVP via the bodytreestudio.com website.
