Taking a break is just as important as hard work, and you have earned a vacation. Additionally, time away gives you perspective. When you’re not in the thick of your daily routine, you can look at your projects through a different lens and come up with even better ideas for the future.
Dubai is one of the perfect places for those who want to relax and unwind. Whether you prefer doing yoga or enjoying a camel ride, Dubai has got you covered.
Let’s explore some indulgent activities that help you make the most of your vacation.
- Underwater Yoga
Morning yoga is a good way to start your day on a positive note. And with the marine animals swimming inside the Ambassador Lagoon in the background, there couldn’t be a better place to set a peaceful baseline for your day.
Aiming to improve your physical and emotional well-being while developing muscle tone and build flexibility, the hour-long class involves a calming sequence of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. The class is suitable for beginners, masters and everyone in between.
- Gong meditation
For those who want to unfold spiritual experiences, a gong bath meditation is a must-visit.
Based on the concept of sound healing and therapy, the ‘Gong Meditation’ reduces symptoms of depression and promotes overall mood. The gong produces various tones and vibrations that your body soaks up. The result? A feeling of tranquility and deep relaxation.
- Full Body Massage
When it comes to self-care routines, massage often tops the list. Rubbing and kneading the body is a popular way to unwind after a long day.
As the name implies, a full body massage includes all areas of the body – from top to toes. Yes, we all know that it is a great way to release tension from the deepest muscles of the body. But what most people don’t know is that massage restores your natural beauty with anti-aging benefits while decreasing anxiety and lifting your mood.
- Desert Camping
When we think of Dubai, the first visuals that come to mind are skyscrapers, a long coastline, luxury automobiles, bright lights. But before it, Dubai was only sand.
So, no journey to Dubai is complete without a trip into the desert. Spend a day exploring dunes in a comfortable land cruiser, riding a camel, doing a henna tattoo. After you’ve worked up the appetite, try a delicious dinner accompanied by traditional shows like belly dance. A desert trip is one of the best ways to better understand what culture was like before the city boomed.
- Hot Air Balloon Flights
What better way to enjoy the beauty of a mighty desert around the city, emerald green oases and wandering camels than from the basket of a hot air balloon 2,000 feet in the air?
When you’re floating up alongside the birds it’s unlikely you’ll be thinking about your health – the view is just too breathtaking. However, a hot air balloon ride exposes you to a higher quality of fresh air than you are likely to experience on the ground. This has numerous benefits, including reducing stress, promoting focus and concentration, helping with depression. Along with increasing brain serotonin and dopamine, the combination of these effects leads to a happier individual.
Before you go
Dubai has several attractions that can give you a taste of luxury vacation but it definitely has a lot more adventurous and relaxing options for a perfect getaway from the bustling metropolis. I hope my alternative options of the best yoga and wellness spots in the city were useful.
