Bahrain mall introduces new yoga session
Manama, 14 days ago
Bahrain City Centre, the largest shopping, entertainment and lifestyle destination in the Kingdom, is introducing Odaka Yoga to female shoppers as part of the mall’s ongoing commitment to health and well-being in the community.
Founded by Roberto Milletti and Francesca Cassia from Italy, Odaka Yoga is a new version of yoga that utilizes a “liquid” yoga approach, with each wave-like move used to overcome barriers and develop emotional flexibility.
The “Odaka Yoga Never Stop Flowing” ladies-only exercise session is introducing a new style of Yoga to the region on February 24, said a top official.
“We’re continuously looking for innovative ways to engage with shoppers and encourage the community to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. We are excited to host internationally recognized yoga instructors for the Odaka Yoga session, and welcome shoppers to sign up to experience the innovative yoga form in a fun, friendly environment at the mall,” said Duaij Khalifa Al Rumaihi, the senior mall manager for Bahrain City Centre.
Up to 200 women of any fitness level can participate in the one-time 9am session, during which they will be encouraged to embody the flow of life with awareness, joy and empowerment.
On its Middle East debut, Instructor Milletti said, “We are so happy and honored to live and share timeless moments with the people of Bahrain. In every instant yoga is with us, and it is the medium to surf the waves of life. An asana yoga position works and stretches the body in ways that create new needs and possibilities for further exploration and change.”
Milleti was featured as one of the three world leaders in new contemporary forms of yoga. He has created Odaka Yoga, incorporating martial arts, zen and traditional yoga postures.
Francesca Cassia is an internationally respected instructor, having taught in the US, Europe, Australia and Japan; and has dedicated her life to the empowering and transformative process of yoga.-TradeArabia News Service
