5 Yoga Classes in Bangkok

Where to Find Yoga Classes in Bangkok

If you are looking for an active way to relax then taking part in a yoga classes in Bangkok is a great way to both de-stress and get some exercise. Although yoga was first developed as a spiritual practice, it has now become a great way to increase your body’s strength and flexibility. As well as traditional yoga classes, Bangkok also offers hot yoga, which is performed in temperatures hotter than those you experience outside, and yoga fly which was invented in Bangkok and involves hammock and plenty of fun.

Many of the yoga studios also offer pilates, which shares some similarities with yoga, but focuses more on your core strength and muscles than yoga. Below we have listed our five favourite yoga classes in Bangkok. We recommend you call ahead to reconfirm the class timings in case of any last minute changes.

Yoga Fly

Yoga Fly was actually created here in Bangkok, so there is no better place to experience the most unusual way to stretch and move. Incorporating elements of yoga, pilates and dance, it has a quick pace. Using a traditional mat and a cloth swing hanging from one fixed point on the ceiling, you move through different positions using the hammock as support and balance you whilst you attempt graceful poses, and swing upside down, which is a little less elegant. These classes are suitable for everyone, but it helps if you have a little strength in your arms and legs. At the end of the class you can relax and work on your breathing, cocooned in the hammock. Yoga fly classes run every day from Monday to Saturday, each lasting an hour.

Opening Hours: 08:30 - 20:00 Monday to Friday and Saturday 08:30 – 17:00
Location: 3rd Floor, Ten Ten Building, 593/2 Sukhumvit Rd
BTS: Phrom Pong
Price Range: Starts from 450 baht per session

 

Iyengar Yoga

These guys take their yoga seriously, with a strong focus on precision, breathing and detail. This is not merely a yoga class but a whole experience, and whilst some find this extremely relaxing, others can find it a little intense. At the beginning of the class you collect blankets, straps and blocks to help you to recreate the postures that are key to Iyengar yoga. For those who are more advanced there are ropes on the walls to help with inversion poses. Ideally you should have some basic knowledge of yoga, although teachers are very patient with novices, it can be tricky to hold a position for several minutes at the beginning. If you are getting bored of your usual yoga class and want to try something a little more demanding I recommend this. There are ‘level 1’ classes every day from Monday to Sunday and classes last an hour and a half.

Opening Hours: 08:00 – 20:30 Monday – Friday, call for weekend classes
Location: 3rd Floor, Fiftyfifth Plaza, Sukhumvit 55 (Soi Thonglor)
Tel: +66 (0)2 7149924
Price Range: 500 baht for a single session

Hot Yoga

If Bangkok isn’t hot enough already, check out hot yoga at Absolute. These studios have been around since 2002 and have several studios across the city including Siam, Silom, Sukhumvit and Ladprao. There are 50 poses in the hot yoga series, and they are all performed at 38 – 40 degrees centigrade, a little hotter than the air temperature on a Bangkok summer’s day. This might seem a little mad at first, but the heat helps your muscles loosen up and enables you to stretch better than you would in an air-conditioned studio. The impressive Amarin branch is Absolute Yoga’s flagship, with large studios and 71 classes a week, it’s so swish that royalty even used to come and perfect their poses here. They also have a pilates studio on site.

Location: 4th Floor, Amarin Plaza, Ploenchit Rd. Pathumwan
BTS: Chit Lom
Tel: +66 (0)2 2524400
Price Range: 650 baht for a single session

The mirror lined studio is rather small but well lit and clean, and they have spare yoga mats if you do not have your own. As well as offering the cheapest indoor yoga classes in Bangkok Angel Yoga Club also offers Bollywood Indian dancing, which has become increasingly popular in the past few years. It is a fun, entertaining way to do some exercise, and even if you are a beginner you’ll be swaying your hips with the best of them by the end of an hour’s session.

Outdoor Yoga at Lumpini Park

Lumpini Park offers a more verdant side to Bangkok, and is the perfect place to enjoy yoga alfresco. Classes run for an hour every day, twice a day, at 07:00 and 18:00. You will need to bring your own mat and the classes are taken in Thai, so it might be a little hard if you have never taken a yoga lesson before, but the teacher will help you to move your limbs into position. The classes take place on a grassy space under the trees, in between the lake and the running path and last an hour. If you are coming in the evening remember that there are a lot of mosquitoes around, so long trousers and repellent are essential.

Opening Hours: Twice a day, at 07:00 and 18:00
MRT: Lumpini
Price Range: 50 Baht
