The whole of Dubai will be closing their eyes, focusing their minds, breathing slowly in and slowly out on the weekend of 19-20 February 2016 when the city holds its inaugural festival focusing on yoga and the full 360 holistic lifestyle. Entitled XYoga, this festival is being launched by XDubai in partnership with Dubai Tourism, with the aim of positioning Dubai as the leading destination for yoga in the region.
Globally-recognised yogis will be offering classes in the full array of yoga styles, from Vinyasa to AcroYoga, with opportunities for all, from complete beginners to yoga instructors and from children to pregnant ladies and athletes. Retailers will set up stalls in the village selling yoga clothing, healthy eating products and all the accessories that ensure a healthy balance between mind and body.
Up to 10,000 people are expected to join in the mass yoga sessions that will be taking place on the first day of the event in what is anticipated to be the largest mind-body festival in the region.
Entertainment will also be on tap, with live bands and DJ sets and what’s more, it’s completely free! So whether you’ve never done yoga before or even if you’re an avid yogi wanting to learn more from the experts, head down to XYoga and strike a pose!
