Yoga Retreat – What to pack

Yoga Retreat – What to packLike0

This is the second most asked question when it comes to planning a Yoga Retreat. First is where, second is what on earth do we pack? Having booked a yoga retreat in October, we have decided to have some fun with the pre planning and share few yoga wear on what we fell in love with recently! The universe works in mysterious ways and we tend to take the signs when given to us. We met Dina Ghandour, founder of yApparel in Dubai and it was lust at first sight. That is when we invited her to come along to our fun day at the park with Amanda Duncan, partner at Phoenix Rising and ourselves. We handpicked those special items and could not leave home without them! Ofcourse, we could not have gone the day without our favorite partner The Organic Press for supplying us with the delicious, healthy and organic green juice and finally our inspiration from the Yoga Room in JLT run by Joumana Saber.

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post 💕
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... 💕[Click link in bio to read the full article] 💕.
