Dubai is set to host its first official yoga intiative: XYoga. Organised by XDubai in collaboration with Dubai Tourism, the event is designed to highlight the accessibility of yoga as a lifestyle choice to help encourage people to live a healthier lifestyle whilst at the same time, defying their bodily limits and mental boundaries.

The first lifestyle event of its kind in the region, the fitness festival will include yoga sessions of all kinds, from Vinyasa Yoga to AcroYoga, as well as talks, and workshops for all levels. Ismael Al Hashmi, Managing Director of XDubai says, “It is set to be an amazing event for anyone that loves life and wants to embrace the active outdoor lifestyle that Dubai has to offer.”

The XYoga Dubai Festival will take place on February 19-20, 2016 at the Burj Park Downtown Dubai. All activities are free of charge.
