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.
Born in Scotland, she began her yoga studies in London and from there went to the Sivananda Ashram in Val Morin Canada to study with Swami Vishnudevananda in the Sivananda style of teaching yoga. “Having taught for over 50 years I teach from my experience and 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". Barbara spends her time between Gozo & Dahab, lucky to be able to teach her students in these beautiful locations! When she is not there the holiday will be run by one of the Sunra Team.
Yoga Holiday Plus:
In the week there are five Sivananda yoga classes with a dedicated teacher at 8am, each lasting one & a half hours. 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.
For the other six classes you have the wonderful opportunity to learn other styles of yoga & spiritual practices, including Kundalini, Iyengar, Aerial, Meditation & Sufi Whirling. You can choose these classes at your leisure from an extensive schedule.
In your free time 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. There will be the opportunity to go to 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.
