6:00 PM - Yoga Session

By: Reem Jabak - Yoga Instructor
She goes by her motto “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” which is why she’s always exploring and taking leaps of faith. She believes there are 3 things better off rich - chocolate, coffee and ice-cream! Now you know how to get on her good side
Reem created her own fitness path by trying out all different types of sports: tennis, swimming, badminton, cross-fit – you name it. However, her life turned completely around the moment she attended her first yoga class – yoga found her. To dive deeper into the true essence of yoga she traveled to India to pursue her 200hr Teacher Training Course in Ashtanga Yoga. Along her trip, she got introduced to different types of energy healing and was blown away by Reiki. Soon after returning to Egypt, she became a Reiki Level 2 practitioner. In addition, her love for aerial silks pushed her to combine it with yoga and became an Air Yoga Instructor.
