Yoga festival returning to Sharm el Sheikh
The International Yoga Festival will return to Sharm el Sheikh this spring, providing a range of experiences and activities for followers of the discipline.
First held in 2008 and due to return from April 26th to May 1st 2012, the event has grown in size over the last four years and now attracts hundreds of visitors from around the world.
The theme for this year's festival is 'Egypt back to freedom', to reflect the recent political changes that have occurred in the country and express 'kaivalya', the ultimate goal of yoga, which means detachment or liberation.
A range of experiences will be available at the Domina Coral Bay Elisir Hotel in Sharm el Sheikh, including gentle introduction classes, challenging sessions, Thai yoga massages and workshops teaching new techniques.
Prices for attending the event start from approximately £400 per person, which includes five nights' five-star accommodation, transportation to and from the local airport and access to all festival activities, ceremonies, classes and workshops.
The rate does not cover international flights.
More information and a facility to register are available on the festival's website.
Sharm el Sheikh is a popular destination for watersports holidays and is also home to attractions such as the Serabit El Khadem temple and St Catherine's Monastery, which is home to a collection of multicultural works of art.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
