Calling all yogis…

UPDATE: Yogafest has been postponed until further notice

Let’s face it, the past year has been a strange one and there’s never been a bigger focus on mental health and wellness. If you’re a big yoga fan or you’re keen to try it, there’s a huge yoga festival coming up in Dubai.

Massively popular event Yogafest is returning to the city and the three-day festival is jam-packed full of workshops, classes and talks focused on health and well-being. It takes place at Dubai Internet City from March 18 to 20.

This year, 2021, will mark the tenth year Yogafest has come to Dubai so you know you’re in for a treat. Yogafest supports children’s charities and this year, they’re supporting Gulf For Good, a UK registered Charity with a head office in International Humanitarian City.
