Yoga is an ancient practice of quieting mind and soul. Along with mental fitness, yoga rejuvenates physical and spiritual fitness. To cope up with the busy lifestyle, our body bears a lot of pressure which leads to several health problems. A holistic approach towards yoga can led to a healthy and stress free life.
Yogafest is a health and fitness related community which brings yoga lovers together to support a great cause. The aim of the festival is to raise awareness about the benefits of yoga among the urban population. This community supports children charities in Middle East region. This is the fifth time yogafest is being organized in Dubai by the founder and organizer Elaine Kelly. The much talked about yoga fest would take place on Thursday February 19 to Saturday 21 at Dubai Internet City.
The organizers have arranged seven tents to conduct 100 sessions along with a dedicated vegetarian food court. The event is free for all and aims to raise funds for Palestine Children’s Relief Fund. The first yogafest in Dubai was arranged in 2010. Back then, the organizers arranged eight yoga classes just for a day. But the fest has slowly grown in popularity and with every passing year, the demand for such fitness related event has increased in Dubai. In this year’s yogafest event participants would be allowed to interact with the yoga teachers. The event has also introduced hula-hoop classes, laughter yoga, and belly dancing along with traditional yoga classes. Also the participants can undergo postural assessments and deep tissue massage given by the trainer.
“The visitors are requested to come prepared with a mat, refillable water bottle, blanket and sun cream. Every hour there will be a new class related with health and fitness in the event.”
