Check Out These Stunning Images of Yoga In Dubai

Last month, the city of Dubai hosted the largest yoga festival ever to hit the Middle East. Over the course of 48 hours, more than 20,000(!) people dipped into downward dog and relaxed in savasana.

The festival, XYoga Dubai, hosted famous yogis who held a number of classes, as well as meditation workshops and nutrition classes. Bollywood start Shilpa Shetty (one of the most high-profile celebrities in India) held one of the biggest workshops of the weekend, which saw thousands of yoga fanatics of all ages sweating it out on green mats that lined the city streets.

Check out these photos to see how women (and men!) on the other side of the world are embracing health and fitness. Namaste.
