Even after thousands of years, yoga remains popular because it combines fitness, meditation and a sense of community all in one enjoyable package. Whether you’re interested in hatha, bikram or aerial, Tokyo has got a yoga studio with your name on it.

Tokyo Yoga

Tokyo Yoga offers the most diverse range of yoga styles in both heated and non-heated rooms. Equipment is available for rental, and they also have a shop carrying everything you need for your practice and then some. Marika is fully bilingual, so if you need English instruction check out her classes first.

¥2,000 trial class / monthly or multi-class passes available

YogaJaya is one of Tokyo’s most popular yoga studios, located in the stylish Daikanyama area. Beginning early in the morning, classes for all skill levels are held throughout the day. They ask that you take a beginner’s class for your first session, even if you’re a seasoned yogi. Many classes are taught in both English and Japanese simultaneously depending on the instructor, and drop-ins are welcome.

¥2.500 per class / ¥1,000 trial class / multi-class passes available

Bikram Yoga Studio

This studio is named after the style of yoga it specializes in, also known as hot yoga. Luckily for anyone new to the practise, bikram yoga isn’t divided into difficulty levels. Instead, the postures have variations which allows beginners to learn alongside more advanced practitioners. The Bikram Yoga schedule is up to date and classes taught in English are clearly marked.

¥2,880 per class / monthly memberships available

Bikram Yoga Studio 4-3-17 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan

Be Yoga

Be Yoga is a well kept studio in Minato. The bright and airy practice rooms are the ideal training ground for the serious yogi. Since classes are only divided into two difficulties, even level one will be challenging for a beginner. A couple of different styles of yoga are offered, but currently natal and restorative classes are only taught in Japanese. Drop-ins welcome.

¥3,200 per class / ¥2,000 trial class / multi-class passes available

Studio Mana

If your Japanese is up to the challenge and you want to step outside the typical yoga experience, Studio Mana is the answer. Mana specializes in aerial yoga, which uses suspended hammocks to facilitate the poses. Reservations are required beforehand but no special equipment is required.

¥4,000 per class / ¥3,000 trial lesson / membership and multi-class packages available

Shizen Yoga

Shizen Yoga offers lots of relaxed, gentle class types with a focus on meditation and recovery, including pre and post-natal yoga. It’s also great for beginners who aren’t sure they want to commit, since equipment (including mats) is provided. Classes are primarily taught in Japanese, but several of the instructors including Miki, Mari and Tamami are able to accommodate English speakers.

¥3,000 per class / multi-class passes available
