Nicknamed the City of Oaks, Raleigh is an excellent city to get your standing tree on at dozens of highly rated studios. We’ve narrowed down 10 of the best yoga studios in Raleigh below to help you determine which one best fits your needs.

Bliss Body Yoga

This small, bright space offers flow and restorative-style yoga classes as well as private sessions. New yogis love Bliss Body’s beginning series, an eight-week course that lays out all the basics of yoga, and all of its regular classes are suitable for beginners too.

YoBa Studio

A go-to spot for yoga practitioners looking for hot yoga classes – and like to mix in barre classes with their fitness regimens – YoBa aims to challenge its students. Great choice for the workout-minded when it comes to their yoga approach.

CorePower Yoga

At CorePower, its philosophy is “Live Your Power,” and it helps students achieve just that with its very physical yoga practices. Some classes bring weights into the workout, and all bring the sweat. Studios under the CorePower Yoga umbrella span across America.

Gratitude Hot Yoga Center

Some Raleigh yogis have made this their home studio because they like combining their yoga with the wellness services offered at Gratitude and its relaxed atmosphere. The studio has two spaces, one dedicated to non-heated, traditional yoga and the other a flow-focused room that offers warm and hot classes.

Element Hot Yoga

With a focus on only warm and hot flow classes, the instructors at Element Hot Yoga are some of the most beloved in the city. An overall highly rated studio, some students have noted that the bathroom location is less than ideal since it’s shared with a number of businesses in the building.

Raleigh Yoga Company

Bikram practitioners and Yin yoga fans should head to Raleigh Yoga Company. Hot Pilates are offered at this studio. Those looking for something a bit different and more intense should try a yoga-fusion class that was developed by a former Broadway performer.

Iyengar Yoga Center of Raleigh

As one of the only places in the state of North Carolina to offer certified Iyengar yoga, this center emphasizes that it’s suitable for all skill levels and body types. Iyengar yoga focuses on alignment, poses and concentration, and students rave about the owner and instructor Graham Williams for her open-heart approach.

Colors of Yoga Raleigh

Touted as Raleigh’s only black-owned yoga studio, Colors of Yoga focuses on creating an environment where everyone feels welcomed, safe and inspired no matter their pant size or yoga ability. Catering to “beginners and non-traditional yoga students,” it offers tea post-class as a way to encourage students to mix and mingle as the staff wants it to be a community center just as much as a yoga studio.

Raleigh Yoga Center

Raleigh Yoga Center also focuses on making yoga accessible to a wide range of fitness levels and body types and practices the philosophy, “Be aligned on your mat, in your life.” Its calendar typically only offers a few yoga classes per day Sunday through Fridays.

Judith Valerie Yoga

Judith Valerie brings over 30 years of experience to her yoga studio, and she has many long-term students that like the traditional yoga taught here. Many of her classes attract those new to yoga and many that have more than a few decades under their belts. Each class is 90 minutes and offered Monday through Wednesday, with Thursdays and Fridays set aside for private classes.
