DUBAI // A picturesque rooftop yoga session was held on Saturday at the Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road.

Participants were able to “power up their weekend” with an hour-long ‘Vinyasa’ yoga (meaning the power of breathing) 43 stories above the bustling Sheikh Zayed Road while soaking up breathtaking views of Dubai’s skyline.

“This vinyasa yoga session, set against the stunning view of Dubai, represents breathing life into the city” said general manager Erik Vedsegaard.

“This particular rooftop yoga session was a one-off event before summer kicks in. Given the incredible response we have received so far, we will be making this a regular feature and will resume in August/September. Relevant details related to the sessions will be shared over the summer,” Mr Vedsegaard added.

The session was organised by Australian expat, Stephanie Mulet who has been practicing yoga for more than 12 years.

Becoming passionate about the physical and spiritual aspects of the practice, Stephanie wanted to share her passion with others so decided to take the Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with ETA College in Dubai.

Ms Mulet now provides a flowing, dynamic and friendly class, with challenging balance poses, inversions and core work, taking the time to make adjustments for correct alignment in each pose.

Not just focusing on the physical aspects of the practice, she encourages her students to look inward and start to find the peace and tranquillity within themselves.
