The best yoga studios in Phuket help you to maximise your relaxation during your holiday. This is a fantastic place to get away from it all, with its scenic beauty and seemingly endless stretches of sun-kissed sandy beaches. It is an ideal place to practice yoga, so that you can make the most of the peaceful surroundings and really feel the rejuvenating effects of this increasingly popular activity.
While some hotels are starting to offer limited facilities, professional studios run by dedicated instructors are often a better option, providing top-notch equipment, classes throughout the day, a greater range of yoga styles and more experienced teachers. While the choice of yoga studios in Phuket is not a wide one, we have picked out the most popular and best equipped of them in our selection below. Note that the prices listed are for single drop-in sessions, but all yoga studios in Phuket offer discount packages.
