“Yoga with a conscience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

I've done many challenging classes here but it also has beginner classes, workshops and yoga trips away. It is set in an airy, fan-cooled colonial villa in BKK1. NataRaj has set up a NGO to provide yoga and training to the local community as a way of assisting those affected by traumatic life events and Cambodia's recent history.

“Great stretch out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

I joined one session at 12.20 and it was great! Though it's quite hot over noon in the studio, but still, good sweat and wish I could do their retreat at the weekend but I had to leave PP. Still remember the asanas and do it everyday now.

“Best yoga in SE Asia (so far ...)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

I did two classes here during the week I had in Phnom Penh - it takes about 5 - 10 minutes walk from the Independence monument (but get a moto if leaving after dark). The classes are held in an airy room (but you will work up a sweat) and mats and props are provided.

At $9 a class, it's expensive by Asian standards, but still cheaper than what I'd pay at home.

I had Alison as an instructor both times and she was wonderful - helping me with a couple of headstands I'd struggled with for months.

It's not a tourist attraction of course, but if you're looking to continue your usual yoga practice while travelling, you can't go wrong with these guys.
