In recent years, yoga joints have been popping up all over Tianjin. But unfortunately, the good ones are still few and far between. Luckily, we've cut out the fat for you. Here are the four best studios in Tianjin for strength, serenity, and Namaste hands.
1) YogilotusView In Map
Located inside Nancuiping Park, Yogilotus offers quite a few yoga classes: Hatha, Prana Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anusara, weight-loss, toning, therapeutic, outdoor breathing exercises, meditation and hot yoga, all at a reasonable price. Check your worries—and your shoes—at the door; instructors at Yogilotus are known for their knowledgeable service and make-you-feel-at-home demeanor. Remember to bring your passport when you come the first time (or ID card for Chinese citizens).

2) Shangshan Yoga (Balitai studio)View In Map
Shangshan is an official studio and training center of the Hong Kong Yoga Association, so you can expect some high-quality instruction here. They offer a huge variety of classes, including the increasingly popular “mother baby yoga” and, of course, belly dancing (still no word on a “mother baby belly dancing” class yet). The facilities aren't huge, but the environment is calming. Most first-timers opt for a low-level Hatha yoga class; it's easy and the instructor is supremely patient. The studio also frequently offers group-buy promotions on gaopeng.com, but you'll have to book a day in advance to snag them.

Opened more than a decade ago, Gandhi Yoga is one of the oldest yoga studios in Tianjin. The rooms are spacious and there's plenty of equipment, plus they offer just about any kind of yoga you can name: Hatha, flow, power and much more. It's well-designed, clean, the staff don't bug you all the time about buying a yearly membership… pretty much everything you could ask for in a studio.
