Yoga at the Top, Burj Khalifa: Now THAT was a Friday morning
|Yoga at the Top of the Burj Khalifa. The blue mat is mine.|
Um, yes, I am in.
There were 33 of us gathered up there. It was slightly windy, a little bit, but not too, hot, and one of the best experiences I've ever had. Fran Diaz, the 31-year-old Fitness First trainer and yoga teacher who led the class, agreed. "It's really exciting, because it's like doing yoga at the top of the world," she said after class. "I couldn't even sleep last night. It's the icon of Dubai."
It was fun being inside Dubai Mall that early, to hear the morning sound test of the fire alarm and see the observation deck staff all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
There are two more classes before Ramadan so hurry and book, as ours sold out. The organisers are working on plans to continue it weekly after the break. Dh125 for Fitness First members, Dh150 for non-members. Go to www.atthetop.ae to book tickets.
