Dubai yoga festival XYoga Dubai has just announced another ‘headliner’ yogi, Bollywood star and firm yoga enthusiast Shilpa Shetty Kundra will take part in the two-day Downtown Dubai festival, which runs from February 19 to 20.

Shilpa will host a huge yoga session at 8am on Friday February 19, and will be joined on stage by Indian yoga guru Suneel Singh.

The class will be free, but you’ll have to secure your spot online to ensure you can practice downward dog along with Shilpa.

“I welcome the opportunity to share the power yoga has had on my mind, body and soul with others,” said Shilpa of her upcoming Dubai class. 

Last year, she talked to Indian website Rediff about her yoga practice: “It has made me more disciplined and has made me calm because when I am doing yoga I am also meditating and concentrating. I didn’t take up yoga to look good. I’ve never given a good figure too much importance. Fitness was my target and one of the things that helped me achieve it is yoga.”

Can’t wait until later in the month, here’s a 15 minute YouTube yoga workout from Shilpa:
