Dubai’s Only Underwater Pilates Class Launches At Atlantis, The Palm’s Lost Chambers Aquarium To Support Self Care This Summer

Designed to improve strength, flexibility and core stability, pilates classes will provide an intimate and immersive workout, with yoga and Tibetan bowl meditation also returning to the tranquil setting

Pilates lovers can now crunch and stretch in the most tranquil setting in Dubai, immersed in the serenity of the underwater world at The Lost Chambers Aquarium. Set against the ultimate backdrop of 65,000 colourful marine animals, the 60-minute class led by an expert practitioner guides guests through a series of pilates exercises, incorporating breathing techniques and engaging their core strength – while getting a solid toning workout and prioritising self-care.

Taking place every Saturday from 8:00am-9:00am at The Lost Chambers Aquarium, pilates class goers can dedicate an hour to their wellbeing, emerging from their mats feeling fully revitalised as they round off their weekend. Classes cost just AED 120, are suitable for all levels, and hold a maximum occupancy of 12 people, so those in attendance can enjoy the space and the individual experience on their mats while drawing energy from the group atmosphere.

Yogis can also return to the tranquil setting of The Lost Chambers to practice yoga during 60-minute sessions, every Tuesday and Friday from 8:00am-9:00am, for only AED 160 per class, led by an experienced yoga instructor. Underwater Yoga at The Ambassador Lagoon involves a sequence of calming postures, traditional breathing techniques and relaxation exercises suitable for people at all yoga levels to connect mind, body and soul, channelling positive energy from the majestic marine surroundings.

On the last Friday of every month, the one-hour yoga session from 8:00am-09:00am will be followed by a 30-minute Tibetan singing bowls meditation for a longer switch-off from the outside world. Tibetan singing bowls are an ancient form of medicine that are not only used for meditation but for deep release and restoration, relaxing the body as the vibrations of the bowls help to lower blood pressure, strengthen immunity, soothe pain and significantly reduce stress levels. Creating a perfect harmonious balance to optimise inner healing, this combined yoga and meditation session is available for just AED 175 and will leave yogis feeling fully refreshed and rejuvenated.

Given the popularity of the underwater pilates and yoga classes, all guests are advised to book in advance. As per COVID-19 government guidelines, participants must bring their own towels and mats; alternatively, the hotel has a special partnership with SUGAR yoga mats, which will be available to purchase on the day.
