Yama Yoga Studios – Doha, Qatar

imageAs-salam alaykum

I was in Doha 25-31 May 2015. On previous trips to Doha I had been able to attend several classes at both of the Yama Yoga Studios (YYS) locations – ie European Family Club (Garveys), and Asas Towers.

In the lead up to visiting Doha I had been very interested to read of upcoming workshops and classes being delivered at YYS. However, on arrival in Doha, due to business commitments, I could not fit in a visit to either of the YYS.

If you are planning a trip to Doha it would be useful to register for the YYS newsletter and check out their website and Facebook pages.

Yama Yoga Studios in Doha, Qatar

imageAs-salam alaykum – Peace be upon you

I have been visiting Doha, in the State of Qatar, for five days on a business trip. During this window of opportunity I was grateful to align spare time and scheduled yoga classes so that I could attend a yoga class at Yama Yoga Studios.

On Wednesday 3 April I attended a “heart opening” vinyasa class lead by Sama Davidson. Sama introduced herself to me before the class and advised that I, and one other student only would be taking the class.

The temperature in the studio was around 30 deg C. This was due to the warm weather in Doha, ie not because the room was artificially heated. I am not accustomed to practising in warmer temperatures and began to feel nauseous and light headed part way through the class. These feelings quickly subsided by sitting back in Balasana. I was shortly able to continue with the remainder of the class with no further issues.

imageSama provided subtle adjustments during the practice. And, I was most grateful to Sama for headstand and wheel assistance, and advice.

It was not necessary to book a place for the class. Mats and props were supplied, along with a hand towel. The cost was QR60 – around A$20.

Lovely to meet, and take asana practise with Sama
