Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Egypt.

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.

Accommodation

The Dahab yoga holidays take place at The Bedouin Moon Hotel, situated on a quiet beachfront, a short distance north of Dahab's Asallah village. The hotel is a small and friendly with simple but comfortable rooms.

All rooms have air conditioning with either a balcony or terrace, en-suite, and either sea or mountain views. Sunra Yoga is now delighted to offer the addition of three stunning superior rooms. There is a pool with the best poolside views in Dahab, from where you can see the whole bay, the stunning scenic mountains behind you, and Saudi Arabia in the distance in front of you.

The hotel has a magnificent custom built yoga room making your yoga practice special and inspirational. It is built into the foot of the mountain in the grounds of the hotel, giving it a cave-like ambiance, which is perfect for yoga practice, considering yogis have been meditating in caves since yoga started, over 4,000 years ago.

Program

This holiday give newcomers to yoga a chance to try yoga and see if you like it, or for people already practicing to develop to a higher and deeper level. Either way, people get a great deal out of it, both physically and mentally.

The yoga room is a light and airy custom built and dedicated space in the hotel garden. There are two Sivananda yoga classes per day, each lasting one and a half hours, generally at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. with a morning class only on your last day, a total of 11 classes per one week holiday and with one free day per week.

There are highly qualified professionals to take care of you. Classes are based on Sivananda style, which is soft, gentle, and meditative, not only focusing on breath and stretching, but a good workout for the body at the same time. Each Sivananda class incorporates Asanas (postures to give strength and flexibility to the body), meditation to calm and focus the mind, and Pranayama (breathing exercises). They give energy, revitalize and detoxify, clean the lungs as nothing else can, and strengthen the heart.

More and more people are practicing yoga nowadays - even the medical profession recommend it for stress, anxiety and many other ailments so common in the western world. Most people come to chill and that is almost always achieved. People have been known to come for a one-week holiday and dramatically change their lifestyle on their return home. It must always be remembered that the practice of yoga is not just about the body. It has a deep effect on the mind in a very positive way.

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.
