If you want to know where to go for the best free and cheap yoga classes in Hong Kong, we have you covered.

Cheap yoga classes in Hong Kong might sound like a contradiction. In a city as cool and classy as HK, you can be sure there’s plenty of yoga studios around, but can you really go for free?

If you feel like the price of yoga classes in this city knocks your chi out of whack, we’ve got your back. Here at Savvy in HK, we feel your pain, and we’re here to help you stretch and breathe it out.

We’ll cover:

  • Why you should be doing yoga
  • Why you need to be visiting a yoga studio regularly.
  • Where to go for free yoga sessions
  • Yoga classes in Hong Kong with no set fees, free trials, and unlimited subscriptions

Giving you everything you need to get you started on your yoga journey. 

 

Why do I need to do yoga when I live in Hong Kong?

This city is hectic. That’s why we love it, and hopefully, why you love it too.

It’s a cool city full of interesting vibes and amazing jobs, and plenty to do. Throw all this together, and you can begin to forget to look after yourself.

Yoga is great for seeing your body through the city stresses and bringing you back to the center. Some of the many benefits of yoga to your life in Hong Kong include:

  • Effective, all-over muscle toning as you build strength
  • Up to 250 kcal burned in a one-hour, Hatha yoga session.
  • Immediate and long-lasting benefits to your mental well-being
  • Greater physical flexibility and stronger core, making everyday life easier

 

What are the different types of yoga in Hong Kong?

Being such a cosmopolitan city means we have yoga studios across the city to suit all tastes. You can find classes for:

  • Hatha
  • Vinyasa
  • Yin
  • Hot
  • Balance

Along with plenty of others that will keep you contorting to your chakras’ content.

 

Why should I go to a yoga studio?

There seem to be as many YouTube yoga instructors as buses are heading down Queen’s Road Central. However, you don’t get the personal touch that you get in a studio.

An in-person instructor can verbally or physically correct your posture. You can ask questions and understand adjustments for your level, which just isn’t a thing on a streaming online video.

 

Where should I go for yoga classes in Hong Kong?

Lululemon

Lululemon regularly host free yoga lessons in Hong Kong in their stores.

Every yogi’s favorite sportswear brand, Lululemon, has taken the city by storm. It’s got two new branches, one in the Tsim Sha Tsui branch and the freshly renovated Hysan Place. The brand’s popularity is all thanks to its wide range of high-quality activewear products and the company’s involvement in the local exercise community.

They regularly host free yoga lessons in their store before opening hours, as well as occasional sweat sessions around Hong Kong. They hold yoga classes in Hong Kong at different locations. To stay up to date on their next community workout or yoga class, follow Lululemon’s social media pages on Facebook and Instagram

Yoga Union

Led by renowned yogi Adam Wei, Yoga Union in Hong Kong Central holds various yoga classes every week. From Hot Hatha and Detox Hot Vinyasa to Hatha Basics, the classes are small to ensure that the teacher can provide proper adjustments and care for each student.

Located in Central, the studio is equipped with yoga mats, yoga blocks, and changing rooms, so all you need to bring is yourself, a change of clothes, and water. This is a unique yoga class in Hong Kong, as far as we know, because you pay what you feel, with a suggested contribution of at least $150 per class.

The Yoga Room

The Yoga Room allows you to try the first class yoga class in Hong Kong for free.

Offering over 100 classes per week, The Yoga Room in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, is perfect for experimental yogis. They have a vast range of yoga styles and teachers in the boutique studio covering four floors.

On offer are classes like:

  • Hot flow
  • Candlelight yin
  • Yoga Nidra
  • Meditation
  • Anti-gravity wheel

Plus, The Yoga Room even offers mother and baby yoga for the moms who need extra bonding time with their babies.

HKID cardholders can try the first class for free, while visitors can join a trial class for $200 – great value for Hong Kong yoga classes.

Prajna Yoga

Located in Lai Chi Kok — the up and coming neighborhood on the Kowloon side — Prajna Yoga offers everything from aerial yoga classes, gentle yoga, wheel yoga, balance as well as yin yang.

The studio is fully equipped with changing rooms, showers, and lockers available, making Prajna Yoga is the perfect studio choice for those living further up on the Kowloon side.

Recognized as one of the best yoga studios by World Real Yoga Alliance in 2018, they welcome yogis at all practice levels. Whether it’s you’re first ever yoga class, or you’ve been practicing yoga for years, you’ll be welcomed here.

A true Hong Kong yoga success story as a business, and they have a great initial offer. Prajna Yoga offers trial yoga classes for only $100.

IKIGAI

Ikigai offers drop-in prices at $190 a session for yoga classes in Hong Kong.

IKIGAI is a picturesque studio that is relatively new to the city. With bright red-orange walls, wooden floors, and open windows, the studio exudes welcoming and soothing energy to visitors. 

We love their Yin Yang class on Sundays, a 75-minute class that taps into both your Yin and Yang energy. The first part of the class, Yang, includes faster-paced movements, vinyasas, and sequences, followed by Yin, which includes gentler movements and stretches to end the practice – a perfect balance for the HK lifestyle.

The fee structure is great when you’ve got a busy life and want to slot your yoga in around you:

  • Monthly unlimited classes for $750-1,100 a month depending on package length
  • Packages from $875 for five classes
  • Drop-in prices at $190 a session

FAQs

What are the best teacher training courses?

  • Anahata Yoga

The Anahata Yoga teacher training courses are renowned for having great yoga teachers. If you’re looking for an authentic, calming environment, this is a great option.

The teacher training courses here are accredited by Yoga Alliance and Asana Andiappan College of Yoga and Research Centre.

  • Pure Yoga

Another option is Pure Yoga. Pure offers a large variety of teacher training courses that are accredited by Yoga Alliance.

Pure Yoga offers basic teacher training courses and more advanced courses such as the WildLotus 300-Hour Teacher Training Programme.

While the environment at Pure Yoga is very Instagrammable, it always seems to have a rather hectic vibe.

Where can I buy a yoga mat?

We absolutely love HKTV Mall, and along with everything else you can pick up there, you can get a range of yoga mats to match your budget. Otherwise, for something a little more lux, check out yoga mats at Selfridges. You can get free shipping on all items purchased from Selfridges for 12 months for a relatively low one-off fee. 

Can I do yoga every day?

Daily yoga practice offers you so many benefits. The benefits include; increased flexibility, increased strength, better focus, and feeling calmer.

So you can certainly practice yoga every day, as long as your body and mind are up to it. With the range of budget yoga studios we’ve found for you, there are great classes across the city to choose from.

How many yoga studios are there in Hong Kong?

Full disclosure – we’ve not sat down and counted. It’s a lot, though.

One of the first things I noticed when I moved to Hong Kong was the large number of people practicing yoga regularly. At first, it took me by surprise, but given how hectic the city can be, it makes sense that people devote time to staying centered and improving their mental well-being

 

Finally

Hong Kong is a yoga-mad city. You’ll find plenty of different yoga classes here. Before committing to one particular studio, try out as many yoga classes in the city as you can. This will help you understand the vibe of each studio and determine which suits you best.
