Dubai is getting ready for a massive yoga festival

Dubai is all ready to host a massive yoga festival at the Dubai Internet City Amphitheatre from November 15-17, 2018. The event comes with a jam-packed schedule of free-to-attend yoga sessions, meditation circles and yoga-related activities for fans of all ages.

The festival begins on Thursday evening in the meditation tent, and continues with two full days of sessions led by some of Dubai’s best-known yoga and meditation practitioners along with visiting guest teachers. Healthy food and exciting retail spaces round out this holistic weekend festival.

“Yogafest is about connecting you to nature, to yourself and to like minded people in a beautiful outdoor setting. We believe in karma yoga, giving without expectation. It’s our way of paying it forward. By keeping our events free, you have the opportunity to donate to our charity so you too can feel the joy of giving,” said the organizers of the event.

This year, there will be more than 150 classes and workshops by local and international teachers, including yoga, pilates, dance, qi gong and meditation. The event will also feature talks on healthy living, family nutrition and yoga philosophy.

The new features of the Yogafest are the Shakti Tent, which will be for women only, and the Al Jalila Foundation Tent, for people of determination. All donations from this year’s festival will go towards the foundation’s Ta’alouf programme, which supports carers of children with special needs.

The dog-friendly fest will also have a family tent, offering kids’ yoga classes, prenatal yoga, mother and daughter yoga, family yoga and partner yoga.
