Yoga was developed in India in the ancient times and is comprises of breathing (pranayama), posture (asana) and dhyana (meditation). All the postures are based on nature and are physical, growing in intensity as the practitioners develop and help in building up physical strength and balance. On the other hand, the pranayama and dhyana help the individual focus on the self and develops mental strength. The prolonged effects of yoga have helped greatly in the development of yoga classes in Dubai. The classes are conducted as part of gyms or are held in exclusive yoga studios that have an excellent ambience.
A form of yoga that has grown in popularity since its inception in the 1970s and is found all over the city of Dubai is Bikram yoga. Bikram yoga in Dubai is taught by certified instructors and is taught in a room that is heated and has a humidity of 40%. About twenty six postures and breathing exercises are practiced in a session that lasts about ninety minutes and is said to be highly effective in weight loss.
