“Now in its third edition, XYoga Dubai is about inviting both new and experienced yogis alike to defy their limits,” said Mohammed Javad, General Manager of XDubai, organisers of the festival. “Every edition has been special but this year, we not only welcomed some of the world’s and UAE’s most respected yogis, but also special guests Luis Figo and Nargis Fakhri, to encourage and inspire attendees in their practice. The response from both the yoga community as well as the wider community, has once again exceeded all expectations.’’

Amit Kaushal, CEO of Dubai Holding, the presenting sponsor of the event, added: “As an organisation, we firmly believe in championing health and wellness amongst not only our employees, but also the wider community.

Designed for people of all ages and abilities, the festival showcased multiple disciplines of yoga at what was the largest festival ever to take place in the region. This year’s edition also saw the city’s local yoga studios and pre-eminent yogis leading a variety of signature sessions at the festival.

Speaking of his experience participating in the opening session at XYoga Dubai, presented by Dubai Holding, football legend Luís Figo said: “It was a great experience for me, and it was a positive way for me to start the day. It gave me the chance to calm my mind and start the day with balance. At the same time, I got the chance to stretch and it was great.”
