You can have a different Christmas this year, get away from it all and head to the sunshine in beautiful Dahab for something different. Come on a yoga holiday where you can also scuba dive, snorkel, and ride camels or horses. Go sea kayaking, trekking, try a desert safari by camel or jeep, dine or sleep under the stars, climb Mount Sinai, or just chill out and have a massage and sunbathe.
The Dahab yoga holidays take place at the Christina Beach Hotel, overlooking its own private sandy beach and beach cafe with amazing views over the Red Sea. The rooms are simply but tastefully furnished and all have safes, en-suite shower rooms, balconies or terraces. It is located a short stroll away from Dahab Bay where you'll find an eclectic, colorful abundance of restaurants, bazaars and bars all located directly on the beach front. A wonderful place to watch the world go by!
The restaurant and beach cafe offer a wide range of Middle Eastern and European dishes and vegetarians are well catered for. The hotel has a wonderful custom built yoga room making your yoga practice special and inspirational.
There are two Sivananda yoga classes per day, each lasting one and a half hours, generally at 08:00 and 17:00 with one free day per week. Sivananda is a soft, gentle style of Hatha yoga. Each class incorporates pranayama, asanas, stretching, and meditation and is tailored to the individual needs of each student.
During the week, you are invited to join an optional dinner in the desert, 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 and have dinner cooked by local Bedouin in traditional style.
You will also have the opportunity to go on a mini safari to the Three Pools diving and snorkeling site, weather permitting, where you practice your morning yoga session by the sea shore. Afterward, you can dive or snorkel, eat a delicious lunch prepared by the Bedouin, and spend the afternoon enjoying the sun, sea, and tranquility of the Sinai.
The group generally goes out for dinner together a couple of evenings in the week to one of Dahab's many great restaurants. On your day off, you can visit the famous Mount Sinai or visit Saint Catherine’s monastery, or explore Dahab's reefs. You can also go snorkeling 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 and it is still without electricity.
There is still plenty of time for additional activities which include diving, snorkeling, camel, or horse riding, desert dinner or meditation, trekking, mountaineering, and wind or kite surfing.

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 this is a good idea for a yoga holiday.
Dahab sits between the magnificent Sinai mountains and the Red Sea, an unusual and spectacular combination. It hosts warm weather all year round, so it is an ideal place to get away from the cold winter of Europe. It is also perfect for singles as it is considered a very safe place for women travelling on their own and so easy to meet people there.
