In three studios across Cologne, ‘The Couch’ offers Vinyasa Flow classes for all levels, pre- and postnatal courses for pregnant ladies and young mums and Yin Yoga classes for those who want to slow down, stretch out and relax.

The beautiful light-flooded Yes!Yoga studio in central Cologne offers Power Yoga classes, sometimes accompanied by music. Each teacher has a style influenced by different disciplines and brings their individual experience to the table. It’s a great place to experiment and find your rhythm. Regular workshops give you the chance to perfect those inversions and arm balance postures.

Hot Yoga Köln – Yoga 39°

Ashtanga Yoga Mitte
The Ashtanga Yoga Mitte studio sits in the heart of Cologne’s Belgian quarter and teaches the Ashtanga primary series. Teachers take the typical Mysore approach and give individual advice to each of the students. Beginners are welcome to join at any time. If you prefer to have a bit more guidance rather than jumping straight into the practice, you can join one of the in-depth introductory courses.
