Abu Dhabi, UAE, September 13th, 2011
Fitness enthusiasts in Abu Dhabi will now be able to discover the rejuvenating power of yoga on the mind and body with the help of the most advanced yoga workouts designed to eliminate stress and lifestyle-related health problems.
From Sunday, September 18th, Khalidiyah Mall, the capital’s well-known shopping landmark, and Lifestyle Yoga will conduct free yoga classes in the mall. The free classes will be conducted by Yoga master Sumit Manav, who is acknowledged as one of the top 10 Yoga teachers from India and is the founder of Lifestyle Yoga, one of the leading yoga schools in the UAE.
The initiative is part of Lifestyle Yoga’s ambition to spread the benefits of Yoga to as many people as possible and in line with Khalidiyah Mall’s determination to introduce innovative community-friendly initiatives.
The classes will be held from 7.15 am to 8 am every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday in Khalidiyah Mall’s main atrium, under the expert guidance of Sumit Manav and his professional team. The classes are open to both experienced practitioners as well as absolute beginners. Those interested in enrolling for the yoga programme could visit the mall and register their names with the instructors.
Lifestyle Yoga is a powerful and complete form of yoga with high energy levels that helps people to de-stress, unwind the body and mind, and lose weight. This style of yoga has been proven to effectively counter lifestyle-related conditions such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, cholesterol, thyroid problems, cervical cancer, osteoporosis, and heart ailments, among others. Routine workouts help in building stamina, improving muscle tone and providing overall strength to the body.
Speaking about the development, Livio Fabi, General Manager of Khalidiyah Mall, said: “Khalidiya Mall has always endeavoured to create community-benefiting initiatives for its customers. We recognise the real value of yoga as an important discipline for those who are conscious about their health and lifestyle, and we are confident that our partnership with Lifestyle Yoga will help fulfil that mission.”
Manav said: “With the health benefits of yoga being acknowledged across the world, we are keen that our initiative with Khalidiyah Mall will further encourage residents of the city to actively pursue yoga as a healthy and active lifestyle. We chose this mall for our mission due to its central location, great ambience, accessibility and availability of ample parking.”
For those who cannot attend the morning classes, Lifestyle Yoga also runs regular evening classes at the Sheraton Abu Dhabi. In addition, Lifestyle Yoga conducts classes at Mai Towers (Al Nahda), and in the Arabian Ranches – both in Dubai.
There are limited seats available for the session and the mall plans to hold many more sessions later. To register or for more details, please call 02-6354000 or visit www.lifestyleyoga.ae.
