POCOs, find your zen in one of Dubai’s leading yoga centers

For a healthy mind, body and soul, you are in good hands in Dubai with the city’s many specialized yoga centers and pilates studios.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to yoga centers in Dubai, which sprawled across the city, range from boutique urban studios to fully-fledged days spas and wellness retreats.

One of the oldest yoga studios in Dubai is Zen Yoga which has several branches across the city featuring some of Dubai’s best yoga instructors. Yoga La Vie on The Palm Jumeirah is another firm favorite amongst Dubai’s residents, featuring a wide range of classes in its studios ranging from barre and pilates to reformer, aerial and stretch.

Set in a luxurious setting surrounded by the resort’s meandering waterways is The Talise Spa at Madinat Jumeirah, home to one of Dubai’s best beaches. The Talise Spa offers daily sunset yoga classes and monthly full moon yoga on the beach with stunning views of Burj Al Arab. This venue also offers vinyasa, yin and ashtanga yoga with packages on offer that combine yoga classes and spa treatments.

With the city’s year-round sunny weather, outdoor yoga classes are very popular too, especially during the cooler winter months, and many of Dubai’s yoga centers have outdoor classes on their schedule.
