Out of the bustling city and into serene nature surroundings, 100 yogis descended upon the desert sands of Al Qudra, Marmoom Reserve, on Saturday, 24th March for an evening of reconnecting and meditation with their inner selves and the yoga community around them at the Live Awake ‘Reconnect With Happiness’ Retreat.
Yoga is all about relaxation, breathing and stretching and there was certainly a yoga vibe at the yoga retreat, which brought together SSS, Guava Pass and Inspire Yoga followers. Key influencers also joined in the yoga retreat to lead sessions for yogis who were ready to enjoy a journey for several hours of harmonising body, mind and spirit.
Comfortable capris and breathable tops at the ready, this exercise marked a beginning of allowing access to freedom in an emotional, physical and spiritual way. Relaxing hip exercises allowed everyone at Marmoom Reserve to release the feeling of being ‘attached’ to the busy, hectic lifestyle and ‘let go’.
Nothing but the breeze came in between this calm moment of meditation where everyone had the opportunity to re-balance their connections in their lives such as family, passions and health while listening to calming sounds.
The conclusion of the yoga retreat, just as the sun set over the golden dunes, was each person acknowledging their ability to control happiness and heal themselves by tapping into their innate wisdom.
