Guavapass : new price options

I recently mentioned the Guavapass and how you could use it. The basic system was a “buffet” system with an all you can do classes, limited by the number of classes per school (3 per months). While this limit didn’t change much, Guavapass is now offering new options for people looking to test but who can’t commit to a daily yoga life.

You can now subscribe to a monthly fee as low as 1599thb for 4 courses. Another interesting plan is the 10 classes package for 3199thb (available for 3 months). See below :

The best yoga studios in Bangkok

As you probably know, I tried many yoga studios in Bangkok. I’ve had the opportunity to take different courses of different kinds of yoga (hot yoga, vinyasa, hata yoga, yoga fly, etc) and today, i’m proposing my personal favorite so that you can check the Best yoga studios in Bangkok.

Disclaimer : I truly believe yoga is a personal path and that what spoke to me might be different than what you’re looking for. I tend to prefer smaller studios with a strong connection with the teacher. This is a very personal post and i’ll keep updating it if I believe some things have moved or if I discover another yoga studio that earns the place on the podium.

Interview : Adrian Cox founder of Yoga Elements

We have had the opportunity to interview Adrian Cox, the founder and boss of the famous yoga studio Yoga Elements (BTS Nana). It was a chance for us to ask many question about his journey into yoga, his own practice and how he runs Yoga Elements.

First of all, can you introduce yourself briefly ?

My name is Adrian Cox, I am from the US, and I came to Bangkok in 2001 and started Yoga Elements studio. Yoga and teaching is my life work, my mission, and my passion!

How did you discover yoga in the first place (when did you begin?) ? Did you do other physical activities before that led you to yoga ?

I took my first yoga class 23 years ago but didn’t like it very much. It did get me curious however. At the time I was allergic to team sports, although I loved dance, karate, and cycling. The next teacher (Eve Nyman, Iyengar Yoga) I tried I really got switched on to the practice and philosophy and it started a passion that continues to this day.

The microtraumas that your muscles  suffer will create this stiffness that people call sore muscles of DMOS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
