“Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.
As the weeks roll into one another I am slowly piecing together all the health & wellness places in Abu Dhabi. My most recent discovery is the Bodytree Studio . They offer an array of classes from Yoga, Pilates, Ballet, Barre and Zumba. Pre and post natal Yoga and Pilates classes are offered as well as breast-feeding support education. I have taken a fancy to Ashtanga Yoga and class members vary from beginners (like me) to super yogis. They sell beautiful active wear for ladies, brands like Onzie and Lorna Jane. The vibe in the studios is very chilled, friendly, relaxing and helpful. Nestled in the Bodytree Studio is a cafe called Nectar.
For me, Nectar is a little slice of heaven. It offers juices, smoothies, fresh wheatgrass shots, ginger shots, coffee and tea. You can pop in after a class, chill out and have a chat with fellow class members. Nectar grow their own wheatgrass and make their own cashew milk. There is both dairy and non dairy options.
Today I tasted a “Bounty Smoothie”, the staff are exceptionally helpful, I asked to omit dates and add some cacao nibs as I do not have a sweet tooth. They can tailor the juices and smoothies to your taste buds and there is the option to add organic whey protein, chia seeds, goji berries or manuka honey. The smoothie was delicious and satisfying. I will be ordering it again.
