We offer both in-shala and online classes via zoom.



Nilaya is a gift for the whole community. Beautiful, positive energy and vibe. Very solid teachers who I’ve found to each be helpful. If you’re looking for a place where people come to practice yoga and not just a spot where yoga is on the menu of many other fitness classes, this is your place. Coming here regularly will nurture your spirit and not just your body.

If you are in Dubai and yoga is on your mind, then this is hands down the best studio. I have tried various styles of yoga that they have to offer – Ashtanga, Iyengar, Hatha, Kundalini, and Restorative and the best part is every teacher comes with utmost authentic knowledge and adds their own unique style that will keep you really engaged. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate level practitioner, enrolling in classes here is the best investment you can make towards your yoga journey.

It has really been lovely attending the morning sessions at Nilaya house, the facilitators are excellent and it has benefited my well-being. It is one of the most authentic yoga centers in Dubai that I have come across that give individual attention even in a group class.

So happy to have met Purva and attend her meditation classes in the peaceful atmosphere of Nilaya House as I have always felt a feeling of serenity there. An hour with Purva’s smile and welcoming lights and chanting has become a necessity for me in my busy life. I always feel refreshed, calmer but also more aware, somehow, after our sessions.

Restorative Yoga with Nassima was exactly what I needed to relax, unwind and stretch my body.  Nassima’s warmth and expert guidance in every posture made us feel safe and supported. I left the session feeling rested and restored and would not hesitate to recommend the class to anyone I know. A big thank you to Nassima and Nilaya House.

If you’re like me and never quite got yoga and feel intimidated about keeping up with group classes, I’d highly recommend going to Zainab’s introduction to Ashtanga course at Nilaya House. As I’ve huffed and puffed through asanas wondering why people do this to themselves, and how everyone else appears to be so gracefully posed as I fall flat on my face, she’s pushed and encouraged me just the right amount to keep me wanting to persevere. To be able to go from barely making it through a basic Surya Namaskar or two in a class, to adding on many more per session along with several other asanas in a span of just six weeks feels pretty incredible. But, while the physical accomplishment feels great, the relief of the weight of anxiety and stress lifting each time I walk out of her class is life changing and what keeps me going back despite my sore protesting body. Whether you’re a newbie like me looking for a non-intimidating space to learn or just wanting that little extra push to keep you going, I cannot recommend Zainab’s classes enough and I am so grateful for the wonderful experience.

Namaste, My idea of yoga was just to sit and do repetitive postures. Honestly, it didn’t click with me until I was exposed to information about Yoga Nidra, the teacher was amazing. She made sure to explain every single step and kept checking in on me to make sure I was really enjoying it. I haven’t been able to sleep deeply for over two years due to high stress levels, until I took my first session. I highly recommend this to everyone that is stressed, overwhelmed and having panic attacks as this will help for sure. A huge thank you to the team of Nilaya House for their support and patience with a newbie that asks a lot of questions.

I have been looking for a yoga class for many months now, in Dubai. Having tried various classes, nothing seemed to have made me want to come back, until I met Payal at Nilaya House. A place where I instantly felt at ease. I absolutely love my sessions there. Payal is very approachable and a knowledgeable teacher. Not only does she guide me through my yoga journey, but also adds the true meaning to it, finding time to also explain the story behind it all. It is a session where I focus on myself away from all the stress and responsibilities of city life, allowing me to look after myself both; physically and mentally, recharging and energizing me for the week ahead.
