With the new year and events season in full swing and workloads steadily increasing, I have to admit my fitness has taken a backseat. I recently decided to ease myself back in to the fitness world with an Ashtanga yoga class. So I headed down to RAWR Yoga in Dubai to get my Downward Dog on and see what it’s all about.
Juice cleanses, macro-biotic diets and torturous exercise routines have never been on my list of “must-do’s” in life. And while I love to stay fit with weights, cardio training and indoor cycling, when it comes to things like yoga I’ve always had other proverbial fish to fry. I love the deep stretches and pushing my body out of its comfort zone, but the soothing tones of the instructor and slow, flowing movements usually have me struggling to stay awake within the first ten minutes.
