Dear Nilaya House friends,
Summer is here and many of you are in and out of Dubai over the next couple of months.
We hope you take your yoga with you on your travels, and pop into Nilaya House when you are in town. A reminder to consider our Summer Special Pricing (three months for two, on sale til July 20), which is a great deal to cover the summer period.
We are delighted to introduce new Hatha Yoga classes in July, ideal for beginner students but also suitable for everyone (read below for details).
Aside from our regular schedule, keep a look out for our community classes that run on the weekends. These classes are priced at half the regular drop-in price, so spread the word and if you are in Dubai this month we look forward to seeing you. The perfect way to beat the heat is more time on the mat!

YOGA IN THE HIMALAYAN TRADITION WITH MONICA SPERLING
The Himalayan Yoga Tradition, based on the teachings of Swami Rama and the Himalayan Sages before him, is an experiential concept. Its dhyana- (meditation) based method, through consistent and constant practice, helps towards the healing of physical or mental pain. It is a comprehensive and integral system which does not require adherence to any religion or belief system. Involving much more than the positioning of the physical body, it brings the experience of breath-awareness, self-acceptance, concentration and gentleness into one’s daily life.
Including Joints & Glands Exercises and Systematic Guided Relaxation
FRIDAYS FORNIGHTLY STARTING JULY 5
AED125 or AED105 for NH member
YIN YOGA WORKSHOP WITH AMANDA SMITH
- SATURDAY JULY 13 3:00-5:30pm
We welcome you to an afternoon Yin Yoga Workshop with Amanda Smith. An intensive two-and-a-half-hour session where you take off the hats of the various roles you play as a parent, colleague, boss, mentor, friend and find a deeper connection with your body and re-aquaint yourself with your essence. Yin yoga is a whole body experience, tapping into the deep connective tissues of the body, the ligaments, joints, bones, and deep fascia networks.
A Yin class consists of a series of passive floor poses held for up to five minutes or more, that mainly connects with the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. Useful for releasing physical tension, the practice also offers huge mental and emotional benefits.
The workshop is open to all. No yoga experience necessary.
AED200 or AED175 for NH members
