Yoga and fitness lovers now can enjoy a new way of yoga exercise--to have it underwater with 65,000 marine creatures. Set against the mesmerising tranquility of the Ambassador Lagoon, underwater yoga in The Lost Chambers Aquarium officially launches this week, taking place from 8am-9am every Friday.
A first of its kind in the region, underwater yoga is the perfect way to kick start a weekend, with a one hour yoga class costing AED120 which includes a yoga mat, valet parking and a bottle of water.
Surrounded by a majestic 65,000 sea creatures, guests will have the opportunity to rejuvenate and restore in a unique aquatic surrounding practicing Hatha Yoga, a discipline that helps bring peace to the mind and body. The class is open to all different levels* and aims to improve strength, flexibility and balance, involving beautiful, calming sequence of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation of body tension.
A study released by researchers from the National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth University and the University of Exeter has shown that contemplating fish in an aquarium has an effect in reducing levels of stress and anxiety and provides health benefits including lowering blood pressure.
* The class is open to those 16+ years of age
