The pergola-style steel structure is located at Marasi Business Bay

There’s now a new destination for Dubai’s yoga enthusiasts to gather thanks to the opening of the city’s first purpose-built outdoor yoga facility.

Dubbed a ‘Yoga Hub’, the pergola-style steel structure is located at Marasi Business Bay and designed specifically for swing yoga able to hold up to 15 swings at a time.

Developed by Dubai Properties, free yoga classes will be held at the hub four times a week and run by local studio Piloga. The classes will run until the end of 2017 and can accommodate up to 150 people.


At the moment there’s a warrior yoga class being held on Monday mornings at 7am and a more relaxing class on Wednesday nights at 7pm, while Swing yoga classes are at 7pm on Sundays and Tuesdays.

There will be variety of appropriately-named classes on offer including ‘Candlelight and Essential Oils’, ‘Swing’ and ‘Full Moon Yoga with Sound Therapy’. We’re feeling positively zen-like already.

The launch coincides with the recently announced Dubai Fitness Challenge, and a free public event will take place on Friday, 20 October where visitors will have the opportunity to try out a number of classes kicking off at 5pm.

Interested participants can visit the Piloga website for more info, or to the Facebook event page for an exact schedule.
