Finding a studio to do yoga in Bangkok can be tricky. It’s a big city full of tight roads, alleyways and many places aren’t listed online.
Some of the classes are a great standard. Others are, frankly, worth avoiding. Generally though, the quality of the instructors is pretty good.
There are western expat yoga teachers with many years of experience. Plus, there are some really good Thai yoga teachers in Bangkok.
Without a doubt, Bangkok is the best city in Thailand for the amount of Yoga classes and studios. The environment might not be the most picturesque but yoga in Bangkok is great for beginners or advanced students alike.
It’s the perfect activity for de-stressing on holiday, or great for long term residents, who can take up some of the low-price membership options available.
So whatever type of yoga you’re looking for, here are five great studios to visit…

The five studios mentioned here are great for tourists who want to do yoga during their trip. But they’re also suitable for long-term residents who would like to find a yoga studio in Bangkok that they can attend regularly.
Yes, there are other places. And I’d recommend trying as many as possible until becoming more experienced and finding a long term option that’s good value, fun and challenging.
