A moving meditation, it’s astonishing to think what just a few minutes of yoga can do — cleanse the mind, strengthen the muscles, revive the soul and build that core stability. For moments when life seems to fly by at a rate of knots, take some respite and discover the best yoga classes in Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland.
The Kali Collective Yoga And Barre Studio
Located in the city centre, The Kali Collective And Barre Studio is a home away from home. From Power and Vinyasa Flow, to Yoga Nidra and Barre, there really is a class for one and all. Through incorporating the fluid graceful art of ballet (minus the heavy toll on the body) with Pilates and yoga, Barre is essentially therapy for the muscles. The kind of place you miss when you’re not there, The Kali Collective is comprised of a team of outstanding individuals eager to guide people of all levels.
Merchant City Yoga ticks every box. The fuss-free approach, immensely talented instructors, practical mentality and inclusive personality, all amalgamate to a very happy tribe of yoga enthusiasts. Dedicated and supportive, this yoga studio sources gurus in Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa, Pranayama, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, to name a few. The unrivalled vibes and perfect mix of laughter and composure at Merchant City Yoga ensure pure love at first breath.
The brainchild of yoga aficionado Sasha, Shanti Yoga is both invigorating and liberating. Her classes, which include Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yang, Forrest, Zen Ki and yoga specifically for runners, cyclists and sporty folk, are laden with infectious energy and vivacity. Extra attention is placed on taking care of the joints and knowing personal limitations. As a student of Scarlett Mehigan of Tribe Yoga and after an epic 200-hour training session in India, Sasha holds a wealth of knowledge that’s revealed in all of her classes.
Bikram Yoga Southside
Created by master yogi Bikram Choudhury, Bikram Yoga gained widespread popularity from the 1970s onwards. With a never-ending list of benefits and powerful healing qualities, the 26 postures and two breathing exercises of Bikram yoga work wonders on the mind, body and soul. Bikram Yoga Southside, with its exceptional team, commendable community spirit and serene space, is second to none. Once more, this stellar studio has a tasty juice bar packed to the brim with nutrients and a fresh air ventilation system that ensures the room is always fully oxygenated. And yes, the studio is set to a temperature of 40.6 C (105 F) and a humidity level of 40% — the perfect Bikram temperature.
My 121 Yoga
A true master in her craft, one session with Simone from My 121 Yoga is less of a class and more of a spiritual expedition. Through passing on the gift of her training with gurus in India and Western yogi celebs, Simone helps people mend the mind, body and spirit via a powerful mix of Ashtanga, Hatha and Iyengar yoga styles. Each session is tailored to the individual’s needs, resulting in a high level of personal and physical growth. Always expanding the yoga frontier, Simone is soon to embark on an additional adventure in the form of Kids Are Yoga, an outlet for children to flourish and truly be themselves.
For a wholly spiritual yoga experience, look no further than Infinity Yoga. Situated in the Merchant City area, the team consists of deftly talented teachers trained in all forms of yoga from Vinyasa and Absolute, to Power, Barken, Hatha Raja, Yin and Purna. Add a bit of heat into the mix and the tension literally falls off. With a mantra of ‘be your real self so the universe can find you’, this boutique hot yoga and Pilates studio is both restorative and addictive.
Yoga Meditation Healing Glasgow
Yoga Meditation Healing is a platform for people of all skill levels to rekindle their sense of self. One class with any of the yoga gurus has the ability to instill a sense of purpose and liberation from stress. A peaceful subterranean setting, the basement studio (complete with walled garden) is located in the West End. Those craving to try the more meditative aspects akin to yoga — think Shamanic Reiki, Shamanic Journeying and Shamanic Counselling — will fall head over heels. Literally.
Relaxing and thought-provoking, Yoga Jo’s in an epicentre of all things yoga. Located in Milngavie just outside Glasgow, this studio offers various classes around the clock, including 200-hour yoga teacher training courses for those wanting to spread the yoga love. The calming, open space transports people to another land, while the smaller Yoga For Wellbeing class is a sanctuary specifically for individuals suffering from anxiety, reduced confidence or low mood. Expect to leave with heightened awareness, a fresh approach to breathing and a stronger posture.
