From life of the party to Sober Yoga Girl
Like many expats, Canadian Alex McRobert dove into the UAE’s party lifestyle when she moved to the Gulf six years ago. Though based in alcohol-free Kuwait, she would fly to Dubai regularly for weekend blow-outs. After she moved to Abu Dhabi, the all-you-can-drink weekend brunches and midweek ladies nights were what she lived for. Read Here
Inside the UAE’s ‘sober curious’ movement
“I got really swept up into the brunch and ladies’ night lifestyle,” says McRobert. “I would teach hot yoga classes hungover and toward the end of my drinking, my yoga was suffering. It was becoming less authentic and my teaching was deteriorating. I didn’t have a lot of people attending classes anymore.”

Canadian sober coach and yoga teacher, Alex McRobert, whose parents were very strict with her about drinking and driving, also believes that communication and where you’re raised are factors.
