As I was in Phuket for the last holidays, I saw there were some opportunities to practice yoga on the island. As it’s quite big and that yoga is pretty well organised, I figured I could propose you a list of the best yoga studios of Phuket. Here we go, let’s do some yoga in Phuket !
Between Kata and Karon beach, the CC’s hideaway is proposing 2 sessions a day in a lovely environment (on an open air rooftop). Various kinds of yoga are proposed : hatha yoga, vinyasa, ashtanga, or even pilates. A good studio in this area.
On the east coast, Sumalee yoga propose a beautiful space to study yoga and muay thai. Open house with a beautiful garden surrounding the place, Sumalee is proposing daily classes (1 per day usually) except on sundays. Beware, some of the courses are as early as 6.15am.
The yoga offer in Phuket is huge !
Near the Bang Tao beach, Yoga Republic seems to be a good option. This indoor yoga studio led by Jack Farras proposes regular courses of various yoga styles (fusion flow, chill, silent hot, etc) as well as some yoga retreats.
Another solid option is the Yoga + studio also in Bang Tao. Up to 5 courses a day with special spots for young kids (3 to 5 years old). The particularity here is that you will also find dance courses, such as Zumba or Salsa. Note that some of the courses are in english and others are in russian, and some are dedicated to women.
If you’re more into Hot Yoga, you can definitely try the Kata Hot Yoga, on Kata beach. With 3 classes a day, it’s a solid option for your daily sweat.
Another option for Bikram Yoga is the official Bikram Yoga Phuket in Patong. Easy formulas with 1 or 2 weeks are available (2 courses per day).
In Rawai, Julie set a nice little yoga studio : Ganesha Yoga Shala. The passionate and dedicated teacher host 1 to 2 classes every day. You can also stay at her place since they’re proposing a “practice and stay” option.
Mindbody Yoga proposes mostly end of the day classes as well as some intensive weekly training. Kim White focuses on the essence of yoga beside the marketing.
If you’ve tried other yoga studio, please add them in the commentaries ! Enjoy your yoga in Phuket.
There are many other places around to practice yoga around Asia, but also in Europe. I’d definitely recommand to look at the best beaches in Spain for a peaceful practice there.
