​Dahab is a small and friendly village on the Gulf of Aqaba, South Sinai, Egypt.  A northern reach of the Red Sea, it developed from a tiny Bedouin settlement to one of the most popular scuba diving areas in the world due to its extremely beautiful coral reefs.  It has a very relaxed atmosphere, so ideal for a yoga holiday.​  Dahab sits between the magnificent Sinai Mountains & the Red Sea, an unusual & spectacular combination.​ It hosts warm weather all year round, so it's an ideal place to get away from the cold winter of Europe.  It's also perfect for singles as it's considered a very safe place for women travelling on their own & so easy to meet people there.

There are two Sivananda yoga classes per day, each lasting one & a half hours, at 8.00am & 5.00pm, with one free day per week with no classes. Sivananda is a soft, gentle style of Hatha  yoga.  Each class incorporates pranayama, asanas, stretching & meditation & are tailored to the individual needs of each student.

 

During the week guests are invited to join an optional Desert Dinner, an incredible experience where you can also meditate in a silence incomparable to any other. Watch for shooting stars in a sky with a million & have dinner cooked by local Bedouin in traditional style. People are so struck they never want to leave.

You will also have the opportunity to go on a mini safari to the Three Pools diving & snorkelling site, where we practice our morning yoga session by the sea shore.  Afterwards you can dive or snorkel, eat a delicious lunch prepared by the Bedouin and spend the afternoon enjoying the sun, sea & tranquility of the Sinai. ​

On your day off you can visit the famous Mount Sinai and/or visit St Catherine’s Monastery, or explore Dahab's reefs. You can also go to snorkel at Ras Abu Galum, a small Bedouin village one hour north of Dahab up the coastline, either by foot or camel.  Bedouin live there as they have done for centuries & it is still without electricity.

There is still plenty of time for additional activities which include diving, snorkelling, camel or horse riding, desert dinner/meditation, trekking, mountaineering and wind or kite surfing (see below).

Your Teacher:

Born in Scotland she began her studies in London and from there went to the Sivananda in Val Morin, Canada to study with Swami Vishnudevananda in the Sivananda style of teaching yoga. From there, under Swami's orders, she went to London to open the Sivananda Centre. "Having taught yoga for over 50 years I teach from experience and the understanding of the human body that I have gained over this time. Each person is an individual and this is how I teach. Once I start to work with people I can intuit what each individual needs, everybody is different."
