The Shimis Yoga Story

Shimis Yoga, founded by Czech national Simona Stanton in 2020, offers a modern twist on yoga as well as sessions that focus on the more traditional practices. The club’s vision transcends traditional yoga, aiming to bring true health, joy, and wellness to practitioners through newer methods, all while respecting the fundamentals of yoga.

Shimis Yoga offers two distinct concepts - The Box is a dynamic Vinyasa flow class in a vibrant space with music and neon lights that bring a modern feel to a traditional session. The second studio holds slower-paced yoga sessions and is defined by a serene atmosphere, complemented by a variety of natural elements and bathed in sunlight. The brand currently operates a single location in Alserkal Avenue, Dubai.
