Spa plans yoga on full moon night
Dubai, March 10, 2008
Talise Spa at Madinat Jumeirah will host the full moon yoga event in Dubai this year, the spa said in a statement.
The event will be accompanied by 30 guitarists and 15 drummers at Madinat Jumeirah Beach on April 21, it added.
The event is the perfect opportunity to kickstart a healthy lifestyle. The session will be hosted by Talise Yoga Master Vinay Peedikaparamb, and will include a series of Hatha Yoga postures which will concentrate on breathing and deep meditation to calm the mind and encourage deep relaxation, the hotel said.
The first 25 minutes of the event will be accompanied by thirty classically trained acoustic guitarists of all ages, with three guitarists remaining throughout the entirety of the yoga session and integrating their instruments into the yoga sequences.
As the session will come to an end, to commence a celebration of awakening of the spirit, fifteen drummers will build up to a 10 minute crescendo of tribal drumming to truly welcome the full moon and all that it brings.
“We are thrilled to be making such a spiritually significant event available to people in Dubai. Talise is a place of self-discovery taking guests on an unforgettable inner journey with spiritual and physical treatments and experiences influenced by healing traditions from around the world,” said Talise Spa director Trevor Studd.
“Practicing yoga on the beach, by the light of the full moon, accompanied by the sounds of tribal drumming, will be a unique and unmissable experience,” Studd said. – TradeArabia News Service
