“expensive”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Depends on which one you go to. I went to the one in the Amarin Plaza, the yoga is good but it's pricey.

“Yoga in Bangkok”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

This place is great. Bilingual teachers. Drop in class costs 650 Baht.
The studio is very clean, in fact there is a six man cleaning crew waiting to clean the floor after each class. They provide the mats and towels for you.
Went to the Yoga Pilates class and learned a lot. A little yoga experience is required, but felt comfortable with all the poses. They also offer Hot Yoga.
If you're looking for yoga in busy Bangkok, this is the place to go!

“TONAL YOGA COUNTING WITH A DEMO DUMMY:”
Reviewed January 2, 2010

Went to Absolute Yoga Sathorn while in Bangkok. It is very clean, well ordered (matching mats and towels), and has very good showers....almost like being at Pure Yoga in NYC except there are windows and the staff is supper friendly. I could only make the “all styles class” which is basically a challenging version of Hatha. The class is bilingual, but the English is really funny; when holding for a 5 count, all the number are sung in English with each number going from high to low pitch in two syllables (three—ee, two-oo, and wa---one). 75% of the 90 min was focused on backbends…the girls in the class were amazingly good; it was fun watching them do virasana to full wheel and then grab their angles in full wheel. The instructor really knew his stuff; however, instead of demonstrating the poses, the instructor used this young fit completely shaved guy to demo the asanas…a truly Bangkok touch. Afterwards, I suggest going to the restaurant at the Jim Thompson house for a raspberry-banana smoothie and a Thai salad…yeah it is wimpy not having a drink after yoga, but Bangkok is really hot so you can get dehydrated and seeing all those extremely skinny girls in class doing backbends does make you think about having a light snack.

“Bangkok: Absolute Yoga”
Reviewed May 9, 2009

I attended the Hot Yoga class drop-in class here - I'm a complete beginner, and was afraid at first it may be difficult, but the teaching style was very professional and non-judgmental - everyone goes at the pace they are comfortable with, and the teacher is calm, patient and clear. There were about 30 people in the studio on the Saturday afternoon I went, but you can hear and see the teacher so this wasn't much of an issue. In the class, there were all types - old to young, men and women, people who were using yoga to get fit and others to stay fit.

The studio was heated up to 37 degrees celsius (hence the "Hot" yoga) in order to improve circulation and detoxification - it can get a little stuffy, and the bottle of chilled water you can buy there for 10THB is essential. They have a variety of drop-in yoga classes in studios across Bangkok - I went to the one at Amarin Plaza just next to the train stop Chidlom BTS, it's very convenient as there's Starbucks, MacDonalds, Boots as well as other shops there.

It was 650THB per 90min class, but if you're here for 7 days there's a tourist package which allows unlimited drop-in classes. The receptionists were helpful and not at all pushy if you come from a drop-in class, I enjoyed my session there and will be going back again today!
