Find True East

Dozens of yogis in a stretch on mats on a beach.

I have something to admit; years ago, when a student of mine who was living in Abu Dhabi said, “You should come teach here,” I kinda didn’t know where ’here’ was.

For the uninitiated, Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a nation formed in December 1971 by seven sheikhdoms along the Arabian Gulf that borders Oman to the east, Saudi Arabia to the south as well as sea borders with Qatar and Iran. The UAE’s total population is approximately 9.2 million, made up of roughly 1.4 million locals and 7.8 million expats—to say it’s a culturally diverse nation is an understatement. Arabic is the official language of the UAE but English is widely used.
