If you like to practice yoga and you are looking for teachers/places to practice yoga in Lyon, I can give you my personal Top 3 Yoga places – in my area.
2 of them are in Brotteaux (and this blog was about Brotteaux, right ?), to get to the third one – the one I recommend the most – you just need to cross the river.
#3 O Yoga studio – Vinyasa Yoga
It’s based in old house, (19 rue Cuvier 69006 Lyon), you need to request the digit code to open the house door, and the entrance to the studio is at the end of corridor.
I like this place, it makes me think about the yoga “centres” I had a chance to practice yoga in California – it’s a space dedicated to Yoga Vinyasa practice, with all needed material, decoration etc. There is a planning with different yoga teachers so you have a large choice of available classes ( no excuses :) ). If you are here just for few days, and would like to catch up with your practice, this is probably the place I would recommend.
#2 Les Ailes – Hatha Yoga
It’s Hatha Yoga School with no dedicated room or addressee; the yoga teachers are changing the venue however you always know where to go – for example in one of the rooms of Mairie de Lyon 6, (they have very good and clear communication) or 13 rue Curie, Lyon 6°, 3ème floor (400 m de la Gare des Brotteaux) (it could change in 2017).
My yoga journey has started with this school and I will be forever grateful for lessons of kindness and humility I learnt there. If you are new to yoga, or on the contrary, you already know what you want, and Hatha Yoga is what you want – I strongly recommend this place.
PS. Yoga mat are provided.
My personal number 1 !
#1 Orazen – Yoga & Wellness
Adresse : 3 Rue du Griffon, 69001 Lyon. This is kind of exception for this blog, to share the addresses outside Brotteaux :) but this time – believe me – it’s totally worth it :)
Orazen, from my perspective, it’s something more than a studio or school of Yoga. Mrs Kisseline Mai, the yoga teacher, is creating here a place where different aspects of wellbeing, personal development and of course yoga have space to grow.
I found her courses via platform Gonette (maybe you know this local money of Lyon? If you use it, you will be happy to learn that you can pay with Gonette even yoga lessons !).
Then I discovered the Saturday morning workshops – where Kisseline is inviting yoga teachers, instructors of mediation, and other wellbeing practitioners, so we can discover different approaches, practices and open ourselves for different ways of reaching the happiness.
Happy Yoga practice in Lyon!
