Buenos Aires is fully in the throes of a yoga revolution. As yoga practice takes over the world, more and more types of yoga and more gurus and studios are popping up all over the place, but which one is right for you? We have compiled a list of the best yoga studios in Buenos Aires.
This yoga and pilates studio is located in Palermo Hollywood, and occupies a beautiful old corner building that is full of light and period features. With a focus on the integration of wellness into their pilates and yoga classes, Urban Lotus offers clients a wide variety of yoga classes, including hatha, ashtanga, and Iyengar, as well as pilates classes that are run using a reformer bed. They also offer a range of different massage styles and therapies, including ayurvedic treatments, reiki and reflexology.
This yoga studio in Recoleta is suitable for yogis of all levels and runs sivananda classes that teach traditional Eastern and Indian yoga practices. The style of yoga offered here focuses much more on breathing techniques and long poses, as opposed to flow yoga’s more aerobic style. All classes are an hour and a half long, with lots of relaxation built in. Yoga Sivananda also runs teacher training courses in this style of yoga, and organizes yoga retreats.
This Almagro studio is located in an old house that functions as a cultural centre, and you can also attend flamenco classes and other activities there, if yoga isn’t your thing. The ashtanga yoga class run four times weekly by the Carlos Frione school takes place in a large room on the ground floor, and the 90-minute classes are largely self-guided, although a teacher is on hand to guide new students through the practice and help experience yogis adjust their poses as required. Drop-ins are accepted, but let them know on Facebook beforehand.
This studio in Colegiales has a pretty full roster of classes, owing to its serious teaching practice and popularity among local residents. Hatha is the main yoga practiced in Ananda and classes are divided into gentle, medium, and intense. There are also ashtanga classes, but these are only offered to advanced students and yoga teachers. Ananda also offers extensive teaching training courses, as well as individual hatha classes, yoga therapy, and massage therapy. Check their website for more info and the class schedule.
