"Bhakti means love and devotion. In our busy lives, it's easy to become disconnected from our true selves. We might think we are stressed out or anxious or depressed, but none of these things are who we really are. Underneath our identities and patterns, is love. Urban Bhakti is yoga designed to bring our awareness back to the heart, to the truth, to love. Amidst the hustle and bustle, all is well. Cultivating mindfulness, nourishing the body and touching the spirit are simply practices that anyone can do. Anyone! All we do is begin. Urban Bhakti, come home to your heart!"
For so long, I have been dreaming of a far-Land Retreat of my own, where I can just spend some quality time away from the crowd, or maybe I was looking for a refuge where I can find some clues for my long-unanswered questions. In Jan 2016, I finally had the chance to travel for a week to Nuweiba, a quiet and small city that lies on the red sea coast in South Sinai, Egypt.
I first became interested in health and well-being over thirty years ago while studying for a degree in Nutrition. During this time I also discovered Yoga, initially as a release from the pressures of student life. It had an immediate effect, helping with sleep and stress and I was hooked. Following my degree I trained with the British Wheel and have been practicing and teaching yoga for the past 20 years.
