“Good classes, friendly teachers - a much needed addition to Phnom Penh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

I go to regular classes at NataRaj Yoga and I like it more and more. The centre is in a great location in central BKK1 (on street 302) and the studio is lovely. There is also a nice big roof terrace where some classes are held - both are light and airy (or as airy as you get in Phnom Penh) with good fans. The teachers are very friendly and make adaptions to anyone who needs changes and there are classes of different levels, plus there are both English and Khmer speaking teachers. I really like this aspect, because it means you are not just in expat world like in so many other provisions in Phnom Penh, but there are a mix of people. They provide all the equipment you need, but you might like to buy your own mat, as people invariably sweat alot in the class! NataRaj yoga also run retreats in Kep throughout the year. And finally, they are a charity which trains and offers opportunities to young people from underprivileged backgrounds to get a more positive future - several of the Khmer instructors came with nothing and now provide international standard teaching. I love NataRaj yoga and would recommend anyone to go - it's not just for longterm residents, but great for people on holiday who want to do some yoga too.

“Great yoga classes for all levels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Nataraj is an excellent yoga school in a quiet location in Phnom Penh, and is a popular choice among expats. The teachers cater for all levels and it's great to have a mix of foreign and Cambodian teachers, and the classes are always held in English.

They have 10 pass cards you can buy, or alternatively attend the community class on Sunday afternoons, which is by donation, so it's a good choice if you are on a budget.

I always left these classes feeling amazing, they are well-equipped and sweetly even offer a cup of tea and a snack afterwards to give everyone a chance to chat, rather than everyone running out the door as usual. Very highly recommended.

“Private yoga classes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I haven't taken any open classes at Nataraj, but I did have a few private classes with Oskar and he was fantastic - patiently helped me refine and get the most from my poses, worked on my breathing, added great new poses that fit well with my routine. The cost was shockingly reasonable. The classes with him have been a highlight of my 5-year practice.

“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.
