Check out these free yoga events taking place this weekend

In celebration of International Day of Yoga, lululemon is hosting a series of yoga and mindfulness sessions on June 1 in Riyadh and Jeddah…

When it comes to free things to do in Riyadh, you might think you’d be limited to going to the library. Considering it feels like SAR200 evaporates from your bank account the minute you step outside, we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s all you thought there was.

Thankfully, though, you can exercise for free – *rolls eyes* we know… but it’s better free than spending thousands of riyals a month on the gym, no?

Say Namaste to these free yoga events. On Saturday June 1, ahead of International Day of Yoga, lululemon is hosting a series of yoga and mindfulness sessions in Riyadh and Jeddah.

The event will include multiple sessions to choose from, offering guests both movement and stillness for physical and mental balance. Plus, the free-to-attend sessions are open to both females and males of all experience levels and will be led by lululemon ambassadors and certified yoga instructors as they guide you through poses and stretches.

Following the yoga and mindfulness sessions, you’ll be able to tuck into complimentary healthy bites and refreshments and have the chance to shop at the lululemon pop-up on-site.

Riyadh sessions

For those in Riyadh, you can head to the impressive Astor Grand Ballroom at The St. Regis Riyadh in Via Riyadh to do some yoga, along with breathwork and a sound bath session.

St Regis Riyadh

Starting at 4.30pm, there will be a 45-minute Reviving Mobility session with Hela Hijazi, Riyadh lululemon Ambassador and seasoned yoga instructor with over five years of teaching experience.

This will be followed by a 45-minute Vinyasa Flow yoga session with Sarah Farhoud, and a Refreshing Breathwork & Sound Journey with Ghalia Al Madani from 6pm to 6.45pm. So, pick your tribe and enjoy, or breathe in, breathe out, and do all three classes.

Jeddah sessions

Meanwhile, the Shangri-La Ballroom at Shangri-La Jeddah will be transformed into a yoga destination this weekend. Newbies and advanced yogis can choose from two sessions.

Shangri-La Jeddah

Get your Yoga Flow to the beats of live music with Lana Nazer from 5pm to 5.45pm, and then fuel up with healthy bites and delicious refreshments.

Or if you’re more into the spiritual side of the practice, the Guided Meditation yoga with Khaled Nahfawi, Jeddah lululemon Ambassador with expertise in the nine emotions of yoga, vinyasa, and meditation, from 6pm to 6.45pm could be the session for you.

Yoga is so much more than movement—it encourages mindfulness, community, and connection to your body and mind. As a company whose vision is to create transformative products and experiences that build meaningful connections and unlock greater well-being for all, lululemon is bringing people together in support and celebration of yoga practice.

The events in Riyadh and Jeddah will run from 4.30pm on Saturday June 1. To register, sign up here for Riyadh and here for Jeddah. Downward dogs at the ready…
