With the craziness of Christmas almost upon us, how about taking some time out to restore your inner balance and get yourself in shape at Dubai’s latest offering, Voyoga?
Voyoga – real yoga for real people – is a brand-new salon in Barsha Heights, Dubai, with two studios offering floor to ceiling views of the city from the 31st floor. (If you’re trying not to concentrate on that pain coursing through your calf as you hold for another 10 seconds, we advise taking a peak of the views to take your mind off it!)
Levels of training intensity vary from class to class. You can choose from a wide range including Bikram, Bikram Express, Hot Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Swing Yoga, plus they also offer Pilates classes a few times a week.
We tried out the Pilates which was well suited to the varying levels of experience in the class…even to stumbling novices – not us, we promise! As for the hot yoga, which is a jewel in the crown of this latest offering in Dubai, the class leaving as we left looked like they’d just surfaced from a swimming pool! Not for the faint hearted but no pain, no gain right? And the sweaty crowd in the communal drinks area afterwards were all full of praise.
So, if you’re on a Christmas weight loss countdown and keen to shed those unsightly pounds before you head home tuck into a festive dinner with all the trimmings, then you may want to knock on Voyoga’s friendly doors.
You can sign up for class bundles or pay as you go starting from AED 85. Packages are also available for just AED 200 up to AED 850.
Located in i-Rise Tower, opposite the Saudi German hospital, visitors also receive two hours complimentary parking.
Now all you need to do is ….breathe.
