Unlock the natural power of the mountains

Oman

Nestled in the serene Hajar mountain range just outside Muscat, Jumeirah Muscat Bay is a beautiful retreat designed with your total wellbeing in mind. Our resident yogi, Seema Rana, is a certified yoga instructor with over seven years of teaching experience in various styles of yoga and meditation, including Hatha Yoga for all abilities, Vinyasa flow, Ashtanga primary series and Iyengar Yoga, as well as relaxation and visualisation meditation. Seema is also specialised in therapeutic yoga such as prenatal yoga, postnatal yoga and joint disorders such as slipped discs, sciatica, osteoporosis, frozen shoulders as well as psychosomatic disorders such as anxiety and insomnia.

Aside from yoga, you can also book alternative therapies including Pranic healing and Singing bowl therapy. Pranic healing is a one to one session which focuses on releasing emotional blockages and nourishing your soul. Singing bowl therapy uses sound vibrations to focus on releasing mental and emotional stress. This can be done with a group, as a part of meditation or in one to one therapeutic sessions.

Timing: Weekly classes on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday
Location: Yoga classes take place either in yoga studio at Talise Fitness or on our grass lawn next to the beach with soothing background sounds of the ocean waves

Unfurl your yoga mat on Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa’s panoramic Tramuntana Terrace and take a class personalised to your needs.

Inhale… on an idyllic island

The Maldives

Step into paradise in the Maldives and allow Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island’s Mindful Collection of wellness activities in its Talise Spa to strengthen the connection between your mind and body.
Choose a class suited to your ability. Take your pick from complimentary Sunrise Yoga practice, a class perfect for early risers; the slow, rhythmic poses of Yoga Flow – which are designed to improve flexibility and alignment – or Yoga Nidra, a meditative practice where the mind is guided to a state between sleep and wakefulness.

Take a session on meditation or one-on-one pranayama to focus on breathing techniques that invite a sense of calm. Align your qi, or inner energy, to the deep, soothing sounds reverberating from the Tibetan sound bowl struck by the spa’s in-house practitioners.

Prenatal Yoga meanwhile, designed for expecting mothers looking to unwind, uses movements to stimulate blood circulation and alleviate discomfort or pain.

Days: Monday to Friday and Sunday
Location: Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island’s Talise Spa
