Diana Bell-Heather   |   14 - 10 - 2018

Starting the week with a good cup of morning coffee in a company of a Dubai-based swing yoga instructor Shirly Sha.


If you haven’t tried swing yoga yet, you need to get down to the nearest studios ASAP as it’s one of the best ways to give your muscles a deeper stretch and improve flexibility without putting too much pressure on the joints. Also, there’s something peaceful about hanging upside down in a swing.
