The new yoga initiative will also encompass a two-day mega festival of the body and mind – XYoga Dubai Festival. The festival is scheduled to take place from February 19 to 20.

With the growing popularity of outdoor activities in the Gulf nation, XYoga Dubai is designed to highlight the accessibility of yoga as a lifestyle choice to help encourage people to defy their bodily limits and mental boundaries.

With sessions available for people of all ages and abilities, the festival will host yoga classes such as Vinyasa Yoga to AcroYoga as well as meditation and healthy eating workshops for complete beginners, pre-trained instructors, pregnant women, children, elderly and more.

Ismael Al Hashmi, Managing Director of XDubai said with their extreme sporting offerings, they recognised that there is a gap in the market in the region when it comes to yoga.

"We therefore were excited to join in the launch of XYoga Dubai initiative as a balance for all these adrenaline sports to offer something fun and enjoyable for our wider audience. 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," he said.
