Are you stumbling across yoga studios on every corner of the city? We really aren’t surprised. You name it, Dubai has it. And it truly has something for everyone and anyone. Ironically though, the pursuit of mental focus and deeper inner quietude can become a bit too overwhelming when you’re spoilt for choice.
Your body is a temple, and we understand your need to find the crème de la crème of yoga experiences to nurture it from within. But the last thing you want is to lose your sanity over choosing the right class. After all, doesn’t it defeat the purpose of a body and mind decluttering experience?
If you ask us, your quest for peace of mind should start off…well, peacefully, and on the right foot, so to speak (half frog pose, we’re eyeing you from afar). Take a deep breath with us in downward dog, that is, because we’ve rounded up the absolute best spots in town and threw them together under one roof, so you can unwind, detox, and strengthen your mind and body in the heart of the city’s hustle and bustle.
