Satva yoga has yoga classes on mornings and aerial yoga classes on afternoons. The teacher Nit is very friendly and very nice, I always have much fun during the class. She’ll adapt the class to your level and propose alternatives for every level, totally recommend !

I signed up to the bodywork and yoga course without much background knowledge in neither, but been going to all kinds of yoga classes over the last 10 years, and I was blown away by Freddy's knowledge and excellent ability to teach with patience. After this course I realized I knew nothing about yoga before coming to Satva yoga and starting all over again from scratch. And the aero-yoga was very liberating and I am longing for it every day still!
The only bad thing about my time at Satva Yoga was that I could not stay longer and practice all what I learned. I really need to go back there as soon as I can! Thank you so much Freddy and thanks to his wonderful wife Nit for being such a good model :)
Peace

I took the 5 day Structural Yoga and Massage training.
And I immediately felt that I was in the hands of a very experienced and knowledgable yoga and massage teacher. And I highly recommend you try the flying yoga, a completely amazing experience.

I followed a five day yoga course at Satva yoga, taught by the very experienced Freddy. I wouldn't call myself a beginner, but I'm not an advanced yogi either. Freddy gave me so much more knowledge on yoga than your regular yoga school would give. He personalized the entire course and taught me all about the principles of alignment, strength and the human body (which he knows a lot about as he is also a very experienced Thai massage teacher). Instead of doing only flows, he explained what the movements do for your body, why it is important to train certain muscle groups, and also gave me tips and ideas on how to practice in a basic environment without all the props he has in his studio! Very helpful, I'm certain to go back there and would recommend it to anyone.

I rate Satva Yoga Chiang Mai 5 stars on the following aspects particularly :

1, Outstanding professionalism : In addition to excellent personal Yoga skills and friendliness that most teachers process in this industry, the couple-teachers Freddy and Nit at Satva Yoga have vast knowledge about using different props, particularly inversion sling, to help students isolate and improve the bottleneck(s) in each pose, therefore beginners to advanced yogis can always benefit a lot in every class.

2, Great studio environment; Large semi open-space studio with 100% natural airflow, beautiful garden adjacent to the studio with birds and butterflies visiting from time to time.

3, Attention to students: The teachers can always identify every student's FIRST bottleneck for improvement in every pose, improvement advice is suggested and demonstrated on the spot before moving on to the next pose.

4, Stable teacher resources – though small scale, I say Satva is indeed a devoted Iyengar Yoga academy instead of just-another-yoga-studio, there is always either one of the same couple-teachers doing the teaching whenever you come to any classes (usually Nit, the wife). It is not like other co-working-space type of yoga studios that operate by signing up a few visiting or freelance teachers who fill in the teaching spaces on a weekly or monthly rotating schedule.

5, Teaching objectives : The teachers aim at equipping you with the necessary Yoga knowledge and skills so that you can do the asanas by yourself correctly and safely at home, not simply showing you what poses you can do or imitate in the 1.5 hours.

A little more about my experience with Satva Yoga Chiang Mai.

I was an absolute yoga beginner with no more than 20 casual holiday-resort kinda yoga class experience in my whole past 40+ years of life.

My whole body is stiff as a wooden plank here and there and the situation only got worse after I went thru a hip surgery 18 months ago. I was looking to focus on improving the overall flexibility of my body by attending yoga classes intensively when I was in Chiang Mai between May & June 2022.

Before reaching Satva Yoga, I went to 4 other studios in Chiang Mai for 9 classes, learning from 5 different teachers. They were all excellent yogis, yet I only saw very little improvement in myself, more often than not finding myself puzzled by many different Asanas in those fast-paced flows in different classes.

The reason I came to Satva the last, simply because Satva did not do as much digital marketing as other studios in Chiang Mai would do, I spotted the name Satva Yoga only after ruling out the other names that I already tried.

I attended 13 classes at Satva across 3 weeks between late May and June, doing around 4 classes a week on average. At the end I saw flexibility of my different body parts improved significantly, also I learned a lot of essential Yoga skills that I can really do by myself at home. I guess the attached collage picture of myself in Full Wheel Pose speak better then words.

I left Chiang Mai happily with improved flexibility in my body and I have already planed on returning to Satva two months later for further improvements. I highly recommend Satva Yoga Chiang Mai to all of you.

Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and innovative use of props - the yoga wheel , the balls, the swing/ hammocks instead of ropes. Good sequencing. Inclusive type of yoga for all abilities .

Satva yoga is a cool place with a big front yard where you can practice yoga outdoors while inhaling the air of Chiang Mai! The trainer Nit is very welcoming and kind. She's focus on Iyengar yoga so the students don't have to worry about not having too many experiences before as they have gadgets to help out. The environment is full of spirits and Thai style! Will definitely come again. Strongly recommend here!!

This lovely yoga shala in a covered garden area is a little tricky to find in a nice peaceful neighborhood.but definitely worth the effort . The instructors have learned a ton about yoga, anatomy and massage in their decades in massage therapy and yoga and they are happy and to share this knowledge with students. There all sorts of props to assist like bamboo walls, hanging harness, blocks, bolsters, etc. There is no need to bring a mat, most of the work is done on the props and there are mats available if needed. The best part is that the instructor will identify any issues you may have and tailor your session to deal with it, both in the sessions and giving you the knowledge to help yourself after you leave Chiang Mai.
