Nuweiba in Egypt is a coastal area between the Sinai mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba.
Nuweiba means ‘Bubbling Springs’ in Arabic. It is 70 km south of Taba and 180 km north of Sharm El Sheik and 120km from St. Katherine’s Monastery and Mount Sinai.
Nuweiba is divided into 3 parts. In the south the port, the town in the center and to the north the bedouin area Tarabin.
The Yoga studio sits on Fayrouz beach in an area called The Dunes, between the port and the town. Along this long, quiet strip of golden sands and turquoise sea there are coral reefs for diving and snorkeling, several beach camps and some medium to small hotels. From the beach in Nuweiba, you can watch the sun rise over the Hijaz mountains of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf of Aqaba. In the evening as the sun sets to the west, these mountains turn a beautiful pink colour.
The main practice room is on the ground floor of the house, facing the sea. It accommodates up to 10 people comfortably and is fully equipped with yoga mats, blocks, belts, bolsters and wall ropes. The room has fresh air, natural light and relaxing adjustable lighting effects. There is a sound system for when music is required.
Other yoga spaces include a larger flat roof area which overlooks the sea on one side and mountains on the other. This is suitable for classes up to 20 people. For star gazing, nowhere is better than the outdoor lounge area. For Meditation and pranayama a large sea shore gazebo (arisha) Here you can follow the sounds of the gentle waves.
The studio has its own large kitchen and dining area but food is also served in the neighbouring Fayrouz Beach restaurant. We cater for special diets and vegetarians as well as serving freshly caught fish, healthy salads and traditional Egyptian dishes.
Accommodation is in 2 separate buildings. There are 8 comfortable en-suite twin and double rooms with air conditioning and sea view balconies. Budget priced beach huts are also available on request.
The studio and accommodation are available for hire. Teachers can bring their own group and everything will be arranged for them. All the teacher needs to do is organise a group and then teach.
We offer well-being treatments in our dedicated massage room, arrange safari trips, diving and airport transfers. Fayrouz beach is a great location for snorkeling.
