Whether you’re packed in like sardines in a subway or stretched out on a white sandy beach, self-care is important. For some people, that includes yoga. In a city with Hippie roots like Seattle, you know there will be some top yoga options. On that note, here are the best yoga studios in the Emerald City.

InsideOut Yoga

Yoga Studio

This yoga studio blends Kripalu, Anusara, Iyenger, and Sivananda, focusing on opening the heart as well as the wisdom and safety in body alignment. It offers events, workshops, and classes with an intentionally limited class size. Providing yoga and meditation in an inclusive environment, regardless of body type, age, and fitness levels, InsideOut strives for self-discovery and satisfaction in the context of acceptance and community. Classes are offered in many variations, including for couples, children, and private.

The Center for Yoga of Seattle

The Center for Yoga of Seattle

Started in 1980, The Center for Yoga of Seattle is considered one of the leading Iyengar Style Hatha Yoga centers in the nation. The studio focuses on a balance of flexibility, strength, stamina, concentration, will power, and relaxation from a perspective of precision. This particular yoga style is accessible to all body types, ages, and limitations. Other than typical yoga classes, The Center offers three to nine week yoga courses and teacher training courses, with levels for both beginners and learned yogis.

Urban Yoga Spa (UYS) is, well, exactly what it sounds like: a yoga studio and spa in an urban location. In downtown Seattle, UYS offers hot yoga, massage, manicures and pedicures, waxing, and reiki. The yoga is practiced “hot” to facilitate flexibility, increase the cardiovascular workout and improve circulation. The entire experience from yoga to spa is intended for self-improvement, allowing patrons to rid themselves of personal obstacles from the physical aspects of excess weight to the mental factors of stress, anger, and fear.

The Grinning Yogi

The Grinning Yogi, with two Seattle locations, is a Vinyasa Yoga studio with a community-based mindset. With the intent of providing accessible and affordable yoga, all levels (including teacher training) are welcomed to the studios, each lightly heated to no more than 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Karma community classes, from which all proceeds are donated to local charities, are offered regularly. The Grinning Yogi believes that self-care (and a smile) should be considered a necessity, not a luxury. This is the studio to visit for an energetic sweat session in which to have fun and connect with others.

The Grinning Yogi – Capitol Hill, 345 15th Ave E, Seattle, WA, USA, +1 206 755 7611

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
