Ever tried out swing yoga in Dubai? It’s an aerial yoga class that uses suspended hammocks to help your body stretch.

4. Define Dubai
This soothing 60-minute class at Define Dubai aims to calm the mind and improve flexibility. Using a mix of yoga and myofascial techniques, the Define Mind (hammock) class will melt away stress and any tightness in the hamstrings, hips and shoulders.
5. Voyoga Dubai
Swing yoga has loads of benefits including better blood circulation, increasing joint mobility and alleviating pain within muscles. If you’re looking to work on a specific part of the body, just inform the instructor so they can tailor your practice to your needs. Fun fact: The hammocks at Voyoga Dubai are made from parachute material, so they’re lightweight and heavy duty for usage.
