Sharm el Sheikh to host yoga festival
18 Jan 2012

Egypt could be the holiday destination of choice for yoga enthusiasts this spring, with a festival dedicated to the discipline set to take place in Sharm el Sheikh.

The fifth International Yoga Festival will feature a range of activities at the Domina Coral Bay Elisir Hotel from 26 April to 1 May.

Open to people of all experience levels and traditions, the event will offer everything from gentle introduction classes to more challenging and dynamic sessions.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy Thai yoga massages and attend workshops teaching new techniques and methods of opening up and relaxing the mind.

All of the experiences will reflect the theme of 'Egypt back to freedom', which was chosen following recent political changes in the country and fits in with yoga's ultimate goal of 'kaivalya', which relates to detachment and liberation.

The International Yoga Festival was first held in 2008 and has grown in stature over the past four years, with hundreds of people from around the world now attending the event annually.
