I've just returned from a yoga retreat holiday organised and run by Ruth Chambers of Life balance uk, and want to thank Ruth very much for a fantastic week. I haven't enjoyed myself so much in a long time. The two sessions of yoga each day left me feeling relaxed and toned. In between, we enjoyed snorkelling amongst the wonderful coral and fish of the Red Sea, trips into the Sinai desert, riding camels and walks by moonlight. Ruth was happy to arrange whatever the group wanted, though there was no pressure to do anything. And what fun we had! The experience of being in a group of middle aged women standing in the back of a pick up truck and whooping like kids as we slipped and slid up and down the sand dunes will stay with me for a long time.

Our Bedouin guides were courteous and attentive, and Christina and her staff at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful. The Christina Beach Hotel is ideally situated in Dahab, close to amenities but quiet and comfortable. Altogether a wonderful and memorable week, well recommended!

It was a wonderful week with lots of peace and quiet. I loved the yoga in the morning to start the day and again before going out in the evening. The yoga class was as easy or hard as you wanted, you could work at your own level and the yoga room up the spiral staircase was just perfect. Ruth is a ("reiki master" reiki training link here) and I had my first ever treatment and found it quite relaxing. The hotel is fantastic, and the owner Christina was great. One evening she arranged a lovely Egyptian meal specially for our group and then she joined in with us too. Some of the girls ended up belly dancing after the meal and we all had a good laugh!

We ate at lots of different restaurants and all the food was lovely - I didn't have a bad meal all week. I didn't really want to do the trip into the desert but I'm glad I did! I thoroughly enjoyed it especially the Yogic chanting in the canyon. We thought we couldn't be heard because it was so quiet there but the sound travelled out of the canyon and everyone heard! Even though it's a quiet resort there was plenty to do and the week flew by.

rosie snorkelling in red seaLast November I went to Dahab, Egypt (for the first time) on a Lifedancing Yoga and Reiki retreat organised and run by Ruth Chambers. For me this holiday combined the activities I love most, Yoga and Reiki and, of course, swimming - snorkelling to be more exact. I was a little anxious as I was to share a room with someone I did not know. I need not have worried as Kathryn turned out to be a delightful girl who was keen to enjoy the whole experience. In fact, everyone I met on the holiday in Dahab were lovely people. The ("Christina Beach Palace Hotel" accomodation link here) was excellent, all the staff friendly, efficient and obliging and the accommodation of a good standard.

The room we did our Yoga and Reiki in was ideal and it was all practiced at a calm, leisurely and enjoyable pace, so beginners as well as more experienced people felt very comfortable. Ruth was wonderful! She looked after us so well and was so enthusiastic that it was hard not to be the same. She took us to some wonderful places in which to snorkel and swim. I had heard how great the Red Sea was for its ("colourful reefs" activities link here), but it exceeded all my expectations and I found it hard to leave the water as the myriad colours of the fish and corals were so fascinating.

The trip into the desert was an experience not to be missed, not least for the style of driving required in deep sand! I have traveled quite a bit, but I must say that on my return, I realized that this retreat had been the most fun and enjoyable holiday I can remember. I am now keen to explore more of Egypt as the people and country have such charm.

It's hard to know what to say as all of it was so lovely. It was my first trip to Egypt, but I think I can say it won't be my last. It was wonderful to holiday with such like-minded people; Christina and ("Ruth" about ruth link here) worked so well together to accommodate all of our needs. Unlike other group holidays we weren't glued to a rigid timetable, it was a leisurely week as life is in Dahab. I had a truly relaxing time and felt immediately welcomed by everyone involved. Snorkelling, yoga, chanting 'oms' in a canyon, time devoted to self and just a little bit of belly dancing made it a perfect pre-Christmas treat! Thank you Ruth.
