Welcome back to Non/Native, the podcast that shares conversations between female expats, immigrants and interlopers. Today's episode features a conversation with Lily, a corporate lawyer who swapped London for Dubai in 2017.

One of Lily's key coping mechanisms after moving solo to the UAE was exercise, particularly yoga, and her passion soon became her vocation, leading her to leave her practice and retrain as a yoga teacher. In this episode we chat about that transition, common misconceptions about Dubai's flora and forna, and the empowering feeling of moving abroad and saying yes to new opportunities.
