MAKE TI’ME FOR YOGA
Hotel in Al Barsha expands leisure offering for 2013; international yoga instructor joins recreation team with weekly al fresco sessions for body and mind
TIME Oak Hotel & Suites, located in Tecom Al Barsha, Dubai, is expanding its health and fitness programme with the launch of a new Vinyasa Yoga class on Monday 21st January 2013.
Led by US-certified yoga practitioner and fitness expert Liz Terry, the 60-minute session will take place in the hotel’s landscaped gardens, offering a relaxed setting in which guests can get in touch with their own bodies and liberate their senses, surrounded by nature.
“This is a great way to enjoy the amazing benefits of regular yoga practice in a unique location that complements the gentle, relaxed philosophy of Vinyasa,” said Liz Terry.
Vinyasa works on building flexibility and bringing awareness to the body’s major joints, and is the ideal exercise class for people with stiff hips or tight shoulders, and those who enjoy a gentle but thorough workout that delivers all-round benefits.
“Vinyasa flow is based on a style of yoga that connects movement with breathing, and this helps tune both body and mind as they harmoniously interact, concentrating the mind and maximising the physical benefits,” remarked Liz.
“Liz has taught yoga all over the world, and her classes use a combination of dynamic techniques drawn from the different yoga styles. This is a very empowering form of exercise where students are able to realise their physical potential and also incorporate yoga into their daily lives as part of a regular fitness programme,” said Gerhard Pretorius, the hotel’s recreation manager.
The new yoga sessions are the latest addition to the hotel’s activity calendar and fitness Powerzone Fitness Centre facilities, which include the latest Technogym machines, steamroom, outdoor Jacuzzi and temperature controlled swimming pool.
Classes cost AED 65 per session. For more information or to book, please contact Liz Terry on 050 376 6984 or email email@example.com.
