Regardless of where you are in your yoga journey, where you practice will have an impact on that journey.Naturally, beginners may feel more comfortable practising at home but eventually, some support will be necessary to avoid misalignment and injuries. As for advanced practitioners, of course, an added push will always be appreciated to deepen and further the practice.
So, here is a list of yoga studios around hotspots within Wilayah Persekutuan (Kuala Lumpur) and Selangor. These studios cater to all levels, with most focusing not only on the physical but also on the mind through meditative practices or workshops.
Oscillation, Kuala LumpurIf you’ve been toying with the idea of inversions then Oscillation is the place for you, specifically the Inverted Strength Flow class; this class teaches you everything you need to know about headstands, handstands, and forearm stands, laying the foundation for Insta worthy shots. Even advanced practitioners can benefit from the Inverted Strength Flow class as it also focuses on understanding body alignment and understanding how to fall.

The Flow Studio, BangsarLife is about balance and the Chill Flow class at The Flow Studio embodies that sentiment; the class is neither yin (slow-paced and relaxing) nor yang (fast-paced and intense), it’s just in between the two. So if you’re a beginner, the Chill Flow class would be a good introduction to yoga whereas if you’re an advanced practitioner, it’ll be a good opportunity to chill - after all, yoga is about balance, too.

The heated Strala Flow class is recommended for beginners and advanced practitioners as it embraces the freedom of movement, meaning it encourages practitioners to connect with their body intuitively and independently.
