5th June 2011- The Yas Hotel has launched a new yoga retreat. The one night programme includes yoga at sunrise on the 217 metre high roof of Abu Dhabi's most iconic address, indulgent spa treatments and dinner in any of the hotel’s fine dining restaurants.


The new retreat offers daily sessions of hatha yoga on the hotel’s striking rooftop, with panoramic views of the marina and the infinite Abu Dhabi desert to exhilarate and energise. The classes are led by specialist instructor Josie McKenlay of Vital Flow,a leading yoga studio in the Middle East, and tailored to individual’s needs. From gentle beginners’ classes to advanced Vinyasa Flow, Josie focuses on four key elements – strength, flexibility, mobility and breathing, helping guests to disconnect under the tranquil Arabian skies.
