Amsterdam offers great Yoga opportunities, both as a teacher and as a student. Yoga mats are usually included in the class price in Amsterdam, and all the classes I took were in English.
Check some of these great studios!
- Parc Studio is a young Yoga community in the South part of the city, with a cozy studio located across from Sarphati Park, which makes you feel surrounded by Nature. I've taken few classes with the owner, Regina: both her Vinyasa and Yin&Yang classes were led with special care for correct alignment, with a nice balance between challenge and relaxation, and accompanied with inspiring Yoga philosophy. Tea and chats will comfort you after class. Price are competitive: 5 euro first timer, 12 euro walk-in. I offered some Vinyasa here in Oct & Nov.
- Svaha Yoga Shala is one of the oldest studios in town, founded in the tradition of Jivamukti. I joined their free community class on Friday, which was led by Mark, an excellent teacher who led a vibrant, fun, challenging, and inspiring 1hr Vinyasa Class. They also offer Kirtan every Friday eve. Recommended!
15 euro walk-in.
= De Nieuwe Yoga School is located in a stylish large studio in the center of Amsterdam and it's a pretty popular spot. Personally I didn't feel a sense of community, and actually I felt rushed in and out of a class with maybe 50 people. The Vinyasa class I took didn't have a good flow, more of a fitness than a holistic approach, but maybe it wasn't my lucky day! 15 euro walk in
= Delight Yoga has three beautiful locations in different parts of the city, and they offer a lot of consistently high quality classes; Ashtanga, Mysore, Vinyasa, and Yin Yang for instance. Their walk in is 15 euro, they don't accept cash, only cards. I ended up joining their Intro Offer: 50 euro for 10 classes. Recommended!
- Yogisha: the first store in Amsterdam completely dedicated to Yoga, nice merchandise and friendly staff!
