Yoga is so much more than just a fitness regime – it is known to provide mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as well. From studios that follow traditional forms like Hatha yoga to those that offer modern versions of aerial yoga, here are the best places in Delhi to experience this ancient Indian practice.

AtréYoga is a special form of yoga developed by Zubin Atré. This style consists of five structured series of postures or asanas. AtréYoga lays special emphasis on biomechanics, meticulously studying muscle movements in order to refine existing asanas and increase their effectiveness. The studio also teaches a variety of other yoga systems including Ashtanga and Iyengar, offering the best form suited to an individual’s lifestyle. The studio believes in providing maximum attention to an individual and therefore, their class sizes are kept small, with no more than eight students attending each group session.

2. Seema Sondhi - The Yoga Studio

Seema Sondhi’s first experience with yoga was after she suffered three lumbar slip discs and the doctors advised her to take complete bed rest. The pain, coupled with lack of mobility, left Sondhi with a difficult physical and mental barrier to overcome. This was when she took up restorative yoga classes and within a year, she made a stunning recovery. Since then, Sondhi has become a well-known yoga instructor and her personal experience plays an important part in motivating her students.

For those looking to mix some thrill and fun into their regular yoga regime, The Yoga Chakra is the perfect place to do so. They offer three styles of yoga — aerial yoga, yoganitriya and Vinyasa. While aerial yoga is a growing trend around the world, where you perform gravity-defying asanas on a hammock, yoganitriya is a blend of yoga and classical Indian dance form. Vinyasa, on the other hand, is a more traditional approach where body movements are coordinated with breathing when transitioning from one pose to the other. Whatever your taste and fitness goals are, you can trust The Yoga Chakra to provide the best guidance.

6. Delhi Rock
