On Tuesday 20th June 2017, Atlantis, The Palm will celebrate The International Day of Yoga with a FREE ‘Underwater’ yoga class in front of the resort’s Ambassador Lagoon from 7:30am-8:30am.

Set to be the biggest underwater yoga class in Dubai, the morning will aim to deliver a completely unique experience for beginners, intermediate and advanced yoga practitioners, set against the mesmerising tranquility of the Ambassador Lagoon, the biggest aquarium in the Middle East and Africa. Due to limited spaces and high demand advance booking will be essential.

With events taking place across Dubai from 20th-21st June, The International Day of Yoga was officially formed three years ago after India highlighted the importance of yoga to the United Nations. It brought together 176 countries to sign a resolution, marking the 21st as the official day of yoga.

Surrounded by a majestic 65,000 sea creatures, guests to the special class will have the opportunity to rejuvenate and restore in a unique aquatic surrounding practicing Hatha Yoga, a discipline that helps bring peace to the mind and body. The class is open to all different levels* and aims to improve strength, flexibility and balance, involving beautiful, calming sequence of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation of body tension.

A study released by researchers from the National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth University and the University of Exeter has shown that contemplating fish in an aquarium has an effect in reducing levels of stress and anxiety and provides health benefits including lowering blood pressure.

The class includes complimentary access to The Lost Chambers Aquarium until 10:00am, a yoga mat, towels and a bottle of water and due to limited space and high demand, booking is essential.
