AURA Skypool, the world’s highest 360-degree swimming pool, is hosting a series of one-of-a-kind experiences this April including a ’Full Moon Sound Healing Yin Yoga’ class, a ‘Wim Hof Method fundamental workshop’, and a ‘Ladies Night Swim in the sky’ in partnership with Charlotte Tilbury.
Guests can witness the iconic city skyline and glittering sea from 200 meters in the air while taking part in exclusive one-off events, offering unforgettable experiences for all the senses.
Sound Healing Yin Yoga class
As the full moon rises above, wellness enthusiasts and yogis can immerse themselves in a healing Yin Yoga class with a sound bath, designed to strengthen the physical body while soothing the mind and allowing it to slip into a deeply restorative state.
Twinkling views, fresh air, and the full moon beaming onto the AURA Skypool deck will provide a calming yet powerful backdrop for this special class on Thursday 6th April, which aims to harmonise the body and release stress.
The session begins at 7.30pm with Yin Yoga, a passive practice that targets not only the muscles but also the deeper connective tissues where there is often resistance, with the aim of reversing the effects of stress. Participants will be encouraged to push themselves to the edge of comfort to activate deep muscles, through the holding of a mix of passive postures.
During the class, sound therapist Liz Prescott will simultaneously lead a magical sound healing session, to help achieve the deepest state of relaxation. Her sessions help activate the body’s self-healing system, soothing the nervous system and encouraging the release of tension from the body. The healing vibrational frequencies help facilitate shifts in the brainwaves to achieve a meditative state, releasing energetic blockages to induce tranquillity.
These two elements together with the power of the full moon are the perfect combination to cultivate a harmonic space to nourish the mind and body, letting go of things that will not serve you in the next cycle.
Guests will all receive an AURA water bottle gift filled with white iced tea, and mats will be provided, alongside bolsters and stripes.
Date: Saturday 6th April
Price: AED280 per person
Wim Hof Method Workshop
The renowned Wim Hof Method fundamentals workshop is coming to AURA Skypool on April 29th from 6am – 9am, in which guests can take part in the famous combination of breathing practices, ice bath immersion and mental strengthening exercises against the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Dubai skyline as the morning sun rises over the Arabian sea.
Led by Ferdinand Thor, the workshop offers a variety of holistic health benefits, from reducing inflammation to improving athletic ability and mental health, which are designed with the aim of helping individuals feel stronger, happier, and healthier.
The workshop will be held at the spectacular AURA pool deck, an exquisite haven filled with lush foliage and natural design elements. It begins with a welcome, in which the theory of the method is shared. A breathing session will follow where guests will be guided to reconnect to themselves, to others, and to nature through deep breathing practice.
The famous ice bath experience follows, which is said to trigger a cascade of health benefits, including more balanced hormone levels, improved sleep quality, and the production of endorphins — the feel-good chemicals in the brain that naturally elevate your mood. Following the experience, guests may stay to ask questions in the indoor lounge and enjoy a well-earned healthy breakfast and hot drink in the AURA Skypool lounge.
Mats and towels will be provided for all guests, who will also receive an AURA water bottle gift to take home.
Date: Saturday 29th April
Time: Workshop runs from 6am-9am followed by breakfast in the lounge until 9:45am
Price: AED1,200 per person
