“Since the very first XYoga we have seen an overwhelming growth of yoga within Dubai and the UAE as more and more people see the benefits of practising yoga. For our second edition of XYoga Dubai, we wanted to channel the spirit of the local community to design an event that appeals to everyone, whether you’re 1 or 100 years old,” said Mohammad Javad, general manager of XDubai. “The result will be two full days of holistic and inclusive yoga, workshops and activities led by some of the most engaging yogis in the world including home-grown, UAE-based teachers.”

All classes, workshops and events on the two days are free to attend, but registration is compulsory. Go to
