Please switch off your mobile phone during class, or set it to silent mode.
Can I come if I’m pregnant?
You can certainly practice yoga if you’re pregnant and our teachers can provide guidance on how to modify poses. However, we strongly recommend that pregnant women get clearance from their healthcare professional first before participating in a yoga class.

We offer a variety of classes at Yoga in Vang Vieng. To see our weekly schedule, visit this page.
Hatha Yoga classes are perfect for beginners and advanced students alike. We focus on alignment and breath during Asana (yoga pose) practice while connecting the mind and the body. Aspiring Yogis will get a chance to receive detailed information on each position to insure their safety. And those who practice for a while will have an opportunity to revise the basics and to receive hands-on adjustments.
Each class we focus on a different system of the body for neutralizing and cleansing – nervous system, digestive, cardiovascular, etc. The class involves gentle movement with guided alignment and focus on body awareness. Perfect for all levels. You will leave feeling like you got a good reboot of your body!
