For our second edition of XYoga Dubai, we wanted to channel the spirit of the local community to design an event that appeals to everyone,” said Mohammed Javad, General Manager of XDubai.
“The result will be two full days of holistic and inclusive yoga, workshops and activities led by some of the most engaging yogis in the world including home-grown, UAE-based teachers,” he added.
The event is brought by a partnership between global investment holding company Dubai Holding and XDubai, with global fitness brand Reebok as an exclusive partner.
