Taking time to look after ourselves is becoming increasingly difficult. From the ever-mounting pressure of work to family obligations and the constant allure of social media, there's rarely a moment in the day we take for ourselves to truly switch off. 

Harvey Nichols — Dubai is looking to change that with the introduction of its two-week long Holistic Wellness program. 

Beginning today, the department store has a stellar schedule lined up that features some of the region's top names in health, fitness and wellness, including instructors from Barry's Bootcamp and skincare expert Dr. Murad. In addition to live conversations on the benefits of meditation, how essential oils can boost your health and more, there will also be in-store yoga classes, brand demos and beauty tutorials to immerse yourself in. 

All activities are open to the public. For the full schedule and to learn more, click here
