Mystic Yoga

You will love the Zen-like aesthetic interiors of their studios. Their classes offer pure form of Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga along with Buddhist meditation. We loved their health food café at the studio in Purnadas Road strung up with Buddhist flags. They had a range of freshly squeezed juices, great for detox. They offer pre and post natal yoga which keeps moms limber, and helps expectant moms with that backache.

World Yoga Society

Got a kink in your back or want to get fit and lose weight, but have no time? World Yoga Society will send qualified instructors to your doorstep. They employ methods of traditional yoga with an approach to healing and therapy. Here’s how it works – you have to visit one of their centers and have a talk with a doctor who will discuss your health issues and prescribe the right asanas for you. Fees are calculated on the basis of the number of classes you take per week. Be warned that this ain't a hip yoga joint for millenials, it's kind of basic but they know what they are doing.
