Sign up now for a mammoth free yoga class

If you’ve ever dreamed of taking part in a free, massive yoga class with hundreds of other yogis (and who hasn't?), you could be in luck. Next week, Oysho, sister brand to fashion chain Zara, is hosting a giant yoga session at the Shanghai I-Pavillion, in the former Expo area.

Yoga coach Zoey Zhou will lead the class, which is expected to have around 500 participants, and a few celebrities will apparently be peppered about too.

The class is part of the Oysho Yoga tour, which has already been to Barcelona, Madrid (above), Milan and Dubai. So far, around 9,000 people have joined in the mammoth yoga classes in their cities, and the tour reaches Shanghai next Saturday. It might all be a bit corporate, but we can’t help but love Oysho’s cute lingerie and pyjamas, and this tour is to celebrate the brand's latest yoga wear, which also looks pretty slick. Word is attendees at the class will receive a free shirt and yoga mat to boot.

The class will be in Chinese, so if your language skills are a bit rusty be prepared to copy the person next to you pretty sharpish.
