Happy UAE National Day!

We are proud to be a Dubai born-and-grown business!

The seeds for our shala were planted back in 2013, when I rented space to run morning classes in a dance studio in Marina. From there we moved to the Al Habtoor Hotel in JBR, then the Westin in Al Habtoor City, to finally building and opening our own shala in Al Quoz in 2017.

Throughout the last ten years, it’s been my mission for the shala to not only be a vehicle for the transmission of authentic yoga teachings, but to be a platform to raise awareness and support important causes.

I’m really happy to end the year by participating in a global fundraiser for trauma relief. Yoga is such a powerful tool for helping people heal from trauma, so I’m delighted to be able to support the organisation Three and a Half Arces in their mission to bring yoga to trauma survivors. See details below. I hope you can join us.

Yours in Yoga
