Hong Kong may be a concrete jungle, but finding wellness and peace has never been easier as we’re never far from a yoga studio and classes. Whether you’re new to yoga or eager to perfect your downward dog, each of these yoga studios offers something unique to fit your needs.

Marketed as the destination for power yoga, the Power Flow Yoga and Power Sculpt class take a fitness approach to yoga by focusing on strength and intensity—the latter incorporates light weights and resistance bands, with the help of patient, highly experienced instructors, to make you stretch that much further.
For those looking for a more relaxing practice, try the Hatha Yoga and Stretch and Release class. Expect to hold the postures for longer to allow you to deepen the stretch and release tension—you’ll leave lighter and looser.
