Free Yoga in Bangkok

Bangkok is a crazy city that has everything you could possibly want, healthy food trends and fitness included!  Yoga is hugely popular but it usually comes with a big price tag since it’s trendy and many of the gyms and studios are super new and fancy, geared towards wealthy Thais and expats.

I spent the last four months living in Bangkok and discovering all the options for FREE and donation-based yoga.  After some looking on Meetup, Facebook, and asking around, I found some great **free** classes and made new friends!

Yim Yam Hostel & Garden (the hostel we are marketing consultants for!) has a free sunset rooftop class open to everyone Tuesdays at 6pm!  The class is taught by Kwan and it’s usually a hatha style class suitable for all levels.  After the class, you can hang out in the garden or cafe at a Post-Yoga Social Hour with 30% off all drinks!

Yoga with Evelin offers classes in Benjakitti Park around sunset twice a week!  Tuesday at 6:00pm is a Hatha Strength class and Wednesday at 6:30pm is a Relaxing Yin class.  I loved coming to her Wednesday yin yoga class to really stretch and meditate while watching the sunset!  Evelin is an amazing teacher and also runs cool yoga/meditation retreats on Koh Samet!

Wanna do yoga on Thursday?  Kwan, the teacher from Yim Yam Tuesdays, sometimes offers a FREE class in Benjakitti Park.  Check her Facebook page, Bangkok Free Yoga, to see if it’s happening!

Last but definitely not least, my favorite Bangkok restaurant Broccoli Revolution, recently started a donation-based class on Thursdays on their rooftop at 5:30pm.  The volunteer teachers rotate through and have always had great music and a great flow every time I’ve gone.  Donations from this class go to Sati Foundation, a nonprofit working on health and education programs with under-served and at-risk populations in Thailand.  So this class has a great karma yoga thing going on and it’s a great excuse to eat amazing vegan food for dinner after class!  Just check Broccoli’s Facebook page for the official dates of this class and send them a message to sign up!
