Dubai Celebrates International Day of Yoga with Art of Living Foundation

Dubai residents embraced wellness as over 225 people participated in the International Day of Yoga celebrations hosted by Dusit Thani Dubai and organized by the Art of Living Foundation.

The event followed the Common Yoga Protocol, a standardised set of postures led by Shri Gaurav Verma.

The event, part of global celebrations marking the 10th International Day of Yoga, highlighted the growing popularity of yoga in the UAE and its diverse, health-conscious community.

Ms. Shubham, a long-time Art of Living volunteer and yoga practitioner, shared her perspective on the impact of yoga:

“I’ve been following yoga and meditation for 18 years, and I’m really thankful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji for taking it across the globe. We’re celebrating in 180 countries today,” she said. “Yoga brings purity to the heart, clarity to thoughts, and sincerity to actions. It’s not just about physical stretches; it impacts your mind and brings a good reunion of body and mind, making life complete.”

This celebration in Dubai reflects the universal appeal of yoga and its growing significance as a practice that transcends cultural boundaries, promoting health and harmony on a global scale.
