Dr Nasim Ashraf, Global Wellness Day ambassador for the UAE and Founder, CEO and chief medical officer of the DNA Centre for Integrative Medicine & Wellness said: “In recent years, we have seen a shift in people looking for ways to achieve balance in their lives both physically and spiritually.

“Global Wellness Day is a celebration of living well with the fundamental purpose to make us stop and think – even for one day – and get away from the stress of city living and our bad habits.

“Our goal for hosting the first official celebration of Global Wellness Day in the UAE is to educate the community about good health practices and wellness.”

Alongside an hour of yoga on Madinat Jumeirah Resort’s private beach with one of Talise Spa’s yoga instructors, world-renowned doctors, dermatologists, surgeons and nutritionists will be on hand to give advice on healthy ageing, balancing life, boosting wellbeing, learning to relax and manage stress.

A complimentary beach yoga session will kick off the day at 8.30am and this will be followed by an address from His Highness Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, minister of culture, youth and community development.

The day’s speakers Dr Theo Voukidis, plastic surgeon; Dr Maria Angelo-Khattar, managing director and founder of Aesthetica Clinic, and Dr Leila Soudah, specialist in obstetrics and gynaecology.

Talise Spa at Madinat Jumeirah in partnership with the DNA Centre for Integrative Medicine & Wellness is the official UAE host of Global Wellness Day.

Global Wellness Day is being celebrated in the UAE under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development.

Earlier this month, the Global Wellness Institute predicted that wellness tourism will grow by more than 9% per year to 2017, nearly 50% faster than overall global tourism and the Middle East is set to lead this growth over the next two years.

Dr Nasim added: “The wellness sector has huge potential for growth in the UAE and it’s our aim over the next few years to help make the country a global wellness hub for the Middle East.”

Stephan Wagner, director of spa and wellness at Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah, said: “We are proud to host the UAE’s inaugural Global Wellness Day at Talise Spa. Wellness and all aspects of a healthy lifestyle are supported at Talise Spa through spa treatments, wellness experiences and holistic group exercise.”

Detox Delight will also be present at the event offering fresh pressed juices, smoothies, vegetarian and raw food items.

Entry is complimentary and open to adults but there are limited spaces.
