Welcome to Nilaya House

We are a yoga shala found in the heart of Al Quoz.
A place to start or deepen your yoga journey, with experienced teachers, focused on personalised attention and guidance.

We run regular classes, courses, and workshops for all types of students, from beginners to those wanting to further explore a particular method. Our class sizes are kept small and we are focused on sharing practices that come from established yoga lineages, taught by teachers with experience that has come from years of dedicated yoga practice.

Nilaya House is the home of Ashtanga Yoga Dubai which offers daily classes headed by KPJAYI Level II teacher Nea Ferrier.

Nilaya House is also available as a venue for workshops and courses in other movement modalities, that are supportive and complementary to enhancing our students understanding of the body-mind connection.

We have named our shala “Nilaya” this is the sanskrit word for “peaceful home”. We hope for our shala to be an oasis in city, a sacred space for meaningful yoga practice.

Our logo includes the “prithvi mudra”, a hand gesture that is used in yoga to promote spiritual balance. It is in the colour of copper, known in Ayurveda for it’s healing properties set against Indigo blue, the colour for developing intuition and accessing deeper layers of consciousness.

The morning self-practice session (10:00am –¬†11:30am) can be attended individually as space is not an issue, however, spaces are limited for the afternoon yin & restorative sessions.
