Attend free check-ups, yoga sessions and enjoy offers
October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a period when the whole world unites to show support and share knowledge about the disease. Honour the initiative in true Dubai spirit at La Mer, where the pink flag will rise high above the dynamic district until the end of the month.
Learn about breast cancer on 11 October at the Pink Caravan Mini Mobile Clinic, a UAE-based breast cancer initiative by Friends of Cancer Patients. From 2-9pm, women can attend informative workshops on how to perform monthly self-examinations or have a clinical exam conducted by a doctor onsite. If you are a woman over 40 with no medical insurance, you can also receive a mammogram screening voucher.
Move over to the sandy shores of La Mer South beach, where certified yoga instructor Daniela Vohnout will guide free yoga sessions to encourage mindfulness and meditation. From Sunset Hatha in the evening to Morning Soul Shine, explore the range of classes available below.
Plus, enjoy special offers throughout the month at La Mer’s dining and retail outlets. Try the Pembe Sebastian, a pink cheesecake at Kaftan, for AED45, of which 40% will be given to Friends of Cancer Patients. Motomachi is introducing a Raspberry Cake and Pink Mojito, while iScream has introduced limited-edition rose sorbet and marshmallow flavours. Enjoy 35% off jewellery at Tulipe Legend and, over at Bareburger, women enjoy a glass of pink lemonade with any dine-in purchase.
