the best and most beautiful places for yoga in amsterdam
Stress!! Everyone knows the problem. To travel is, of course, my number one cure for this phenomenon. Unfortunately, we can’t always just leave town for a beautiful trip. That’s why a relaxing yoga session is my number two favourite. It’s a getaway from this busy city and I can just relax, simply with some yoga in Amsterdam. Maybe you think yoga isn’t your thing because you have to be agile? NO! You’re wrong! Most of the yoga centers offer different programs so everyone is able to practice this hobby. So, there’s just one thing left to do: find your perfect yoga club in Amsterdam.
8 x great options for yoga schools in Amsterdam
Yogafest: In a beautiful historic building near Westerpark this yoga school opened the doors in the fall of 2016. They host teachers from all over the world for special classes and have several rooms for practice. Also nice: this yogaschool has a great vegan restaurant in-house where you can have a healthy breakfast or lunch! Also when you don’t go for yoga you’re welcome for food and drinks.

Absolute Yoga: Would you like to combine pleasure with the useful? If so, Absolute Yoga is it for you. They offer ‘hot & sweaty yoga classes’, bikram yoga. You burn extra calories with this, but it takes some effort as all the positions are done in a room that’s 40°C.
