Yoga

Our rating:

For a small city, Phnom Penh offers a diverse range of possibilities for yoga fans. Whether you’re a devoted yogini or yet to bend your limbs to anything resembling a cow pose, the scope is here to extend your practice or try out something completely new, safe in the knowledge that no one you know can see you.





Established in 2004, the longest-running centre in Phnom Penh is Nataraj Yoga, at 52 Street 302 in BKK1. A project of the Krama Yoga NGO, they run programmes providing yoga training and life skills for young Cambodians, and a yoga therapy programme.

For the public, Nataraj runs daily classes at the site on Street 302 and also at Samata, health and wellness centre (and spa), on nearby Street 306. The classes include pilates, meditation, private yoga classes and yoga therapy, and cost $9 for drop-ins, or you could try the unlimited one-week yoga class pass for just $45 to really kickstart your programme, or a 10-class pass costs $80. They host regular workshops here as well, so check out their website for information on any upcoming events.

The studios on Street 302 are open- or partially open-air, though protected from the elements, and quite simple. They provide yoga mats free of charge, but you should bring a towel and a water bottle—which you can refill for free. They have showers and changing rooms on site. If you require air-con, then the Samata site is much more upscale, and has a beautiful studio. Prices ... please log in to read the rest of this story.
