Try cat yoga at Dubai's Ailuromania Café

Stretch out with cute kitties during the one-off yoga event

Yoga

Forget the cobra – it’s all about the stretched-out kitty at Dubai’s very own cat café.

Ailuromania Café is putting on a cat yoga session on Tuesday August 14 and we can’t think of a more joyous way to reach higher consciousness and stretch our aching muscles than to enjoy shavasana covered in cat hair.

The beginner-friendly class is for ladies only and costs Dhs30 for the session. You’ll be required to bring your own mat, but the felines will be provided.

You can sign up by visiting Ailuromania Café’s Instagram page and have a scroll through snaps of your furry new friends while you’re there.

The one-off event is filling up fast, so you’d do well to get it locked in if you’re keen on cat cuddles (and bending your legs into unnatural positions).

And if you’re a fan of novelty yoga, you might be interested in the new community-class from TEP Factor in JBR.

The challenging puzzle room experience is now offering yoga classes in a cave during the summer completely free of charge.

Every Friday from 8am until 9.30am, beginner yogis and experts can participate in classes throughout the season, taught by a new instructor each week.

The sessions will fuse TEPfactor’s special individual categories from its course, focusing on strengthening the mind, body, patience and skill levels of all attendees.

We’re ready to put ourselves to the test.
Dhs30. Tue Aug 14, 7.30pm-8.30pm. Jumeirah Street, Umm Suqeim (04 321 6661).
