When Istanbul’s chaotic urbanity becomes too burdensome, the city’s many yoga studios are some of the best places to unwind and focus on your inner world. With great studios on both the European and Asian sides, the city’s yoga scene is strong with classes, retreats, international guests, and much more. Check out some of the most popular yoga studios below.

Yoga Şala

With a few branches in Istanbul, Yoga Şala is another favored option when it comes to yoga practice. The Nişantaşı branch is on the sixth floor of an apartment building with two large rooms where all the teachers and students know each other by first name. On the schedule are Yin, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Kundalini Yoga as well as meditation and breathing classes, plus pre-natal yoga. Yoga Şala also hosts yoga instructors from abroad for weekend workshops that fill up fast. Check out the program at a Yoga Şala near you to make sure you don’t miss out.
