YOGA IN SOUTH EAST ASIA!

Posted by Rashida on 7/8/2013 at 00:33

Hello All!

Me and a friend are planning our South East Asia adventures, leaving 1st of December 2013-until the end of February 2014.

We are wanting to go to as many yoga classes as we can find in each of our destinations and are looking for some tips/suggestions/advice from those who have previously done this before! We will only be in each place for a few days so drop in classes would be best, pricing doesn't matter too much however we are not planning on travelling in style haha. we are both in our early 20's!

Our destinations are as follows:
Vietnam:
Hanoi
Halong Bay
Hoi An
Nha Trang
Ho Chi Minh

Cambodia:
Phnom Penh
Siem Reap
Angkor Wat

Laos:
Vientiane
Vang Vieng
Louang Prabang

Thailand:
Chang Mia
Ko-Pha Ngan
Ko Samui
Phuket
Phi Phi Island

Any help would be much appreciated!! :)
Thankyou and safe travels to all!

Chiang Mai: Wild Rose Yoga and Yoga tree, both in the old city. Both run by very experienced people whom I know personally.

Hanoi: California Fitness and Yogo: http://www.cfyc.com.vn/ -> so famous in my country but a little expensive. Its website has English version.
Halong Bay: No idea
Hoi An: No idea
Nha Trang: No idea
Ho Chi Minh: http://www.saigonbellydance.com/ -> Don't mind the name of its domain, it teaches Yoga, too and it has English version with a lots of experienced teachers speaking English. You could learn Indian dance here :) quite funny.

You should be able to find Yoga studios via the internet on each city. Just search "Yoga" and "city name".

We have a studio in Mukdahan "Yui Yoga" but it's not on your list of destinations (surprise, surprise).

Zenith Yoga in Hanoi is probably your best bet - their drop-in rate is $12.

I did yoga for 2 years 2 years ago. I have vietnamese yoga trainer degree. I live in HCM city. I did some different yoga classes such as california fitness, get fit,... But i only like my teacher class. My teacher, she's look younger than her age about 20 years. She doesn't talk english but you can follow her or the others. The class begin at 5:30 am end at 7:30 am, and 5 pm - 7 pm. The training is not too fast or hard, its suitable for all people. Its good and cheap, only about $ 10 for 1 month (3days a week). If you do for 1 or 2 days, you can do it for free. The inconvenience is no shower place and you need to bring water to drink.
I finished my college 2 months ago so i'm going to do yoga again next month.
