I recently completed the 14 day Bikram challenge at Rawr. You pay AED350 and you must attend 14 classes within the two week time period set by the studio. It was very challenging as you need to be in the right frame of mind to be committed and I had to do a few double classes or two classes in one day to make up for missed days, but I felt super afterwards and now I'm hooked. If you work in Media City it's convenient and there's free parking if you attend classes early morning, after work and of course weekends. I've been to many Bikram classes in other cities around the world and Rawr's teachers are ok for Dubai standards (bar is not that high) but compared to other teachers outside of Dubai, they're very mediocre. The best teacher is Rowena, but I found out she was only covering while someone was on holiday. I would like to see teachers who have a better voice that guide you much smoother into the poses and not to stutter and rush your words. One teacher in particular often starts to talk jiberish about really random stuff and you can tell the class just wants her to be quiet get on with it. As for the studio, it's a little smelly (this is typical and you get used to it) and the bathrooms could use more light and they don't seem to have enough lockers at peak times but you can keep your stuff behind the counter. They give you one complimentary towel to borrow but if you need a second one for showering it's AED5. I think you also pay to rent a mat if it's not your first time -I would always suggest buying your own. The girls who work there are friendly and there's a nice community of regulars.If you plan on joining Rawr, check out what specials they have on. I was lucky to catch their 25 classes for AED800 deal which works out to AED32 a class. Drop-in AED70 or 10 classes for AED500.
