I am a baby when it comes to meditation. I’m not a guru, I haven’t been to an ashram and I’m not a member of a contemplative Eastern religion.  What I am is a person who has struggled with sleep for well over a decade and didn’t even really know why until I started regularly doing guided meditations.   By day, I’m a teacher.

It can be hard to find a community in Abu Dhabi, let alone a sense of calm or contentment. There are so many different cultures to navigate and as in any other city, everyone is in a rush. That leaves little time – or energy – for healing and personal development, even if people are hungry for it.

Core 8, a wellness platform in Dubai, was actually born out of horrible pain. “My head felt like it was parked on a spike,” recalls co-founder Nikki Meyler. “I was taking medication every single day, going to hospital and being given pethidine injections as well as morphine. I was trying to get myself better but nothing was helping. I wasn’t getting anywhere. Pilates was recommended to me, but I would end up in incredible pain...
