Stretch it out in the sky with yoga at these incredible spots
Find your zen with amazing views…
January is a time to take a steadier approach to life, eat well and exercise. There’s no better way to get in touch with your inner chakras than stretching it out at a yoga session. In Dubai, yoga isn’t just yoga, and three of the top sky-high spots in the city are offering morning yoga sessions with incredible views.
Address Sky View
Head downtown to the stunning Address Sky View hotel and catch the sunrise with a yoga session by the infinity pool, way up on the 54th floor. You’ll be able to gaze at stunning views of the Burj Khalifa and surrounding skyscrapers glinting in the morning sunshine. The 60-minute sessions take place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 7.30am. It’s priced at Dhs150 per person and is open to everyone aged 16 and over.
