A few of our favourite things to do in & around Dubai this week
We hope you’re just excited as we are because this week is all about bonding with our little ones (and having fun doing it!). From The DEFINE Body Workshop at DEFINE body & mind, an Open Day at Hartland International School, to Baby Massage Classes at Kidville Jumeirah Nursery, there’s a lot to look forward to!
Are you ready to get in shape in 2017? What if we tell you it’s possible to achieve that with your baby? DEFINE body & mind is hosting The DEFINE baby workshop and is the perfect opportunity for mom and baby to bond while mom “re-DEFINEs” her body (win-win fitness #goals). The class focuses on arms, legs, glutes, and abdominals for one of the most fun 60 minutes you will spend exercising. This workshop is especially designed for mamas with babies who love to be in a baby carrier! BYOB (Bring Your Own Baby)! The best bit? Sassy Mama readers will get 20% off all workshops!
