The 45-minute workshop will “enable Muslims to shed the daily accumulated negative ergonomic effects on their bodies”, Nader Sabry, CEO of Timez5 company, told Gulf News on Saturday, November 23.
The new sessions were announced in complementary sessions at Raffles Hotel Dubai, following an official launch of the workshop.

According to Timez5, the workshops, involving stretching and flexing exercises, are “specifically designed” to enable “a more comfortable joint and muscle pain-free enjoyable prayer experience.”
Sabry added that the effects were related to individual lifestyle, health and posture problems rather than prayer.
“There can be a variety of reasons for that – how you sit, where you work, how you travel in a bus,” Sabry said.
“Ninety-two per cent of products aren’t ergonomically designed,” he added.
The company’s exercises were basically designed for the neck, abdomen, lower back, thighs and knees.
“These exercises aren’t new or specific to prayer, anyone can do them. But they help in flexibility and strength, which will help you perform prayers,” said Emirati Eman Al Janahi, resident physiotherapist at Timez5.
“Getting the right posture, knowing how to use muscle tone to support weight on the bone or joint – that can help avoid a lot of future problems.”
Muslims pray five times a day, with each prayer made of a series of postures and movements, each set of which is called a rak‘ah.
The five prayer times are divided all through the day which starts with Fajr prayer at dawn.
