Yoga on a budget

Need a second job to afford (more) yoga? Well, you’re probably not the only one, as it’s not that cheap to practice in a yoga studio in Zurich….

You may have noticed this yourself and also read in my recent interview for a drop-in class can set you back 40 CHF!

You could of course buy a multi-session pass to get that price down, but if you’re as afraid of commitment as I am, you’ll pay for the flexibility.

But don’t worry, drop-in yogis! I compiled the below list & map of studios / locations that offer classes for limited budgets. You can use these as cheap alternatives to get to know some studios and teachers in Zurich.

This journey won’t burn a hole in your pocket, but please still be mindful and compensate your teachers for their work as much as you can. They’ll appreciate it and you’ll enable these classes to continue in the future 😉
