For the Movers
Held on the Friday closes to the full or new moon Moonfest is a healing meditation session hosted by the folks behind Yogafest!
All you have to do is head down to Dubai Internet Sit, mat in hand. Make a minimum donation of AED 50 per person and get involved. During April you can get bendy on the 5th and 22nd from 4 – 7pm.
During the full moon, you will practice a gentler style of yoga like hatha and yin yoga as the energy of the moon is said to be more contemplative and reflective. However, during the new moon you may feel a lack of energy so you will practice a stronger style of yoga like ashtanga vinyasa and power yoga.
