The Gaggler Wellness Calendar

You, But Better: The Gaggler Agenda for October

Mark your calendars.


October 1: Support a Cause

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai is stepping up once again. Entitled #PINKtober, a month-long campaign is taking place at the JBR property, raising funds and creating awareness while celebrating survivors and those currently battling the illness. As for how you can support the cause? The award-winning Afternoon Tea experience at The Lobby Lounge will be served with an elegant pink twist throughout the month, with 20% of proceeds of the pink afternoon tea donated to Al Jalila Foundation in association with Brest Friends.

October 2: Browse a Pop-Up

Saturdays are perfect for browsing a pop-up and, this month, it’s the Not Just For Vegans Market that gets our vote. Taking place at The Void at Studio One Hotel in Studio City, the market will host over 30 vendors from a selection of local businesses selling vegan food products, vegan leather bags, beauty, fashion, homewares, and loads more. You can also expect to dine on vegan favourite by West African eatery Veghana while keeping the kids entertained at dedicated workshops. Bonus: attendance is free.

October 8: Open Your Heart

Chocolate is good for the soul, this much we know – but did you know it opens the heart, too? Ceremonial Cacao is raw chocolate and, when consumed, leads to a release of endorphins and an opening of our hearts. Enter: the Heart Opening Cacao Ceremony at Yoga House, which aims to empower you to release what no longer serves you and help you see and reconnect with what is truly important in your life. The two-hour session will take place at its Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City outpost and end with a heart chakra-based Crystal Bowl Sound Journey.

October 10: Come Together

Leave it to community mental health and wellness clinic The LightHouse to provide women a safe space with its IVF & Infertility Support Group, held in partnership with IVF Support UAE. Providing support in a non-judgmental environment, this online support group is about women coming together to support other women and understand the impact of IVF and infertility on personal well-being, thereby reducing the stigma and shame around infertility in the process. Whether you are currently undergoing IVF or a fertility treatment – or even considering it – this one’s for you.

October 16: Catch the Sunrise

But don’t just catch it – capture it! Sunrise photography sessions are currently taking place from 6am to 7am every weekend at The View at The Palm – the 360-degree observation deck located at the top of The Palm Tower in the heart of Palm Jumeirah – until October 16. Not only will participants have exclusive access to the panoramic observation deck to capture and share their best shots, but they can also win a luxury staycation and dining vouchers by sharing their pictures and tagging @nikonmea and @theviewpalm.

October 21: Make Amends

To say relationships – be they with friends, family, or colleagues – are complicated is an understatement. And that’s where the Healing Myself, Healing My Family, Healing My Relationships workshop at SEVA comes in. Led by seasoned psychotherapist Laura Ghita, the three-hour session will help you form better relationships with yourself and with others by healing your emotional issues, improving your self-esteem and self-respect, helping you deal with stress, and changing problematic behaviour patterns.

October 23: Heal Through Sound

Sound therapy brings with it a number of benefits – stress reduction, improved clarity, deep relaxation, pain relief, and more – which is why the hour-long Tibetan Sound Healing Meditation session at wellness centre Illuminations comes highly recommended. As for what to expect? The soothing sounds of Tibetan bowls will help you destress and deepen the healing of your chakras while creating positive vibrations across the body. This is because our bodies consist of 70% water, making them highly sensitive to sounds.

October 27: Broaden Your Horizons

A cheesy romcom is always a good idea, but it wouldn’t hurt to explore love from a slightly different lens once in a while, right? Tackling themes like passion, sacrifice, and tragedy is The Legend of Love by the Kazakhstan-based Astana Ballet. And between the spectacular choreography, beautiful scenery, enchanting oriental melodies, and captivating performance of this poetic interpretation of an ancient Persian legend about a love triangle, this one’s not to be missed.

October 29: Join a Challenge

So you gained a little weight in lockdown? Fret not because the Dubai Fitness Challenge returns to the city, prompting us to get off our couches and commit to 30 minutes of exercise for 30 days straight. The adrenaline-packed month will feature everything from free workouts and exciting fitness events to wellness-centric entertainment – plenty of inspiration to keep moving and challenge yourself!
