Dubai is hosting yoga workshops aimed at helping participants reverse the ageing process by reducing stress and anxiety, maintaining balance and enhancing physical and psychological strength.
The workshops use the ancient 7 chakra (energy) system of Kundalini yoga where each chakra or energy centre is responsible for specific physical, emotional and personality features, according to Nizar Saab, the Kundalini Yoga Instructor teaching the workshops.
Kundalini yoga includes various poses for body parts that have significant impact on the ageing process, particularly the spine. The sessions comprise various stretching and relaxing exercises for the lower back, thighs, and abs as well as special breathing exercises and chakra meditations to reduce stress and anxiety.
Research shows that the so-called anti-ageing yoga gives results 16 times faster than other forms of yoga.
Saab, who has been practising and teaching Kundalini yoga for over 30 years, will hold the workshops every Sunday starting February 5 from 6:30 to 7:30pm at Sonata Art Centre, Jumeirah Lakes Towers. Classes will take place for the duration of four weeks. Each class is priced at AED80 while four classes are priced at AED300.
