It’s no wonder that many yoga lovers and wellness travelers find themselves drawn to Hoi An. Everything about Hoi An–its healthy food, soothing nature, and slow rhythms–seems designed to create wellbeing. Among the rice fields and flower-strewn streets, Hoi An’s yoga centers offer a chance to deepen your practice and connect inwards. Here are a few of the best places in Hoi An to get on the mat.

Aum Vietnam

Owned by an experienced instructor from Rishikesh, Aum Yoga is a small studio in Cam Chau offering traditional yoga classes several times a day. Rahul Chamoli is known for his detailed and thorough sessions, which intermediate and advanced practitioners will love. The center also holds sunrise yoga classes on Tan Thanh, regular teacher training programs, and yoga retreats on the beautiful Cham Islands.

Xoai Macrobiotic Living

Xoai is a cozy cafe and yoga studio tucked away in the rice fields in Cam Chau, offering Inside Flow classes several times a week. Huong, the owner, is passionate about health and balance, and guides each sweaty session with smiling enthusiasm. After an hour of transitioning through a sequence set to music, head downstairs to the back patio for delicious macrobiotic meals, fresh juices, and smooth coffees.

Om Factory

You’re likely to find a sense of community at Om Factory, one of the most well-established and popular yoga centers in Hoi An. Part of an international yoga group, Om Factory hosts an array of classes in a variety of styles, including vinyasa, ashtanga and gentle yoga, mostly led by young Vietnamese instructors. Drop in to enjoy a practice with amazing views, and meet like-minded locals and travelers.

Love Yoga

If you’re familiar with Sivananda Yoga, don’t miss the chance to practice with local teacher Jyoti, who has set up a home yoga center not far from the Ancient Town. The class follows Sivananda’s traditional sequence, beginning with breathwork, working through 12 essential poses, and ending with a long savasana. Weekend classes are usually full, so be sure to reserve your spot in advance.

Mint Studio

For a fun challenge during your holiday, join the aerial hammock yoga classes at Mint Studio. Situated in an airy room behind Nourish Eatery–a favorite hangout for digital nomads and vegetarians–the studio is an inspiring space, and the classes are expertly led by Mint, a licensed yoga, pilates, and aerial yoga instructor. Sway, stretch, and strengthen together with others in this engaging activity.

Thien An Yoga House

A humble yoga homestay and practice center, Thien An in Hoi An is where many locals go for regular classes. The spacious studio is in a quiet house and garden off of busy Cua Dai Street, where you can roll out your mat and focus on the postures. Thien An offers several hatha, vinyasa, and gentle yoga classes in Vietnamese and English on weekdays, and yoga classes for children on weekends.
