Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

I have seen a bunch of postings about yoga and Pilates in other cities. Can anyone recommend a good place to take Yoga or Pilates classes in Basel?

Re: Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

Hi!

Unfortunately I can't recommend a place yet, since I'm quite new in Basel. But I've looked around for especially Pilates classes in Basel - it seems like most gyms have them - but as I said I can't say if they are any good.

I've signed up for a class/course (9 times) through the health insurance company (Oekk) I belong to at Malibu fitness with start mid-August. It is a fairly good price without need taking on a 1 year membership somewhere. I can get back with info later in August if it is any good/bad.

On this site http://www.oekk.ch/praeventio you can find pilates & yoga courses (8 -10 classes/course) under Wellness. I think that you don't have to belong to Oekk to sign up (only differnt prices) and the classes are held at regular gyms or studios which are specified at the site as well. So I guess, one can also contact them directly.

When I've looked around on internet I've found these pilates studios (I think they have yoga as well)
http://www.spirit-studio.ch/klassen/
http://www.loft-studio.ch/ort/

and these gyms with pilates classes
http://www.john-valentine.ch/
http://www.universaldance.ch/frame.html (in Rheinach)
http://www.malibu.ch/
http://www.actifit.ch/ActifitWomenOn...tundenplan.htm
http://www.wellnessparc.ch

there are surely other places as well.

It would be great to hear if anyone has tried pilates or yoga in any of these places and if the instructors are any good.

Re: Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

Hi Pilates Fans !

I used to go to the Spirit Studio, in Gundeldingen about a year ago, and I really enjoyed the lessons (used to go at midday). Teachers were very good, although, at the time, the classes did get a little full, but there was always enough space for everyone.


Well equipped, with different sized balls, rolls and hoops, to get those muscles working !

Enjoy the workout !

Re: Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

Rather than start up a new thread . . . .

I'm looking for a pilates class in Basel.

My german ain't great, but I think I'd be OK with a german speaking pilates class if I did a couple of one-to-one lessons first (to learn the swiss german phrases for "now put your left foot behind your right elbow", etc).

There are Pilates classes at Spirit-Studio for Pilates and Yoga. Dornacherstrasse 192- Gundeldinger Feld , Bldg3,(upstairs) Basel.
I have not tried them but they are recommended by the International School of Basel's Extra Curricular Programme for parents.

Re: Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

My missus has been searching for an English yoga class for ages, thanks.
Edit: Are there any plans for evening English speaking classes, a morning session excludes a lot of working English expats

Re: Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

I would like to add the Byoga school to this thread - They are located above the Coop City (at Marktplatz), offer about 30 classes a week and the teachers speak english. I have taken classes there in the last few months, and like it. They regularly offer a great package deal for new customers via Groupon!

Re: Yoga and/or Pilates classes in Basel?

I have also been to Byoga.

TBH i find them a little expensive... 30chf for a class... which i know isnt too bad but anywys...

I found the classes ACE. At the time I wasnt speaking any German and in the classes I didnt need to . . . Teachers spole fluently. The environment was lovely & they provided all that you needed (Mats, blocks etc..)

I would completly recommend them!
