The interest for Yoga in Rio is quite big. It’s more an activity for the wealthier. There are quite few options around, in many gyms they offer yoga lessons. I have listed some of the more purely oriented yoga centres below. These types of lists can get out dated pretty fast, if you find out that some of my info is incorrect or if you want to a good place to practice Yoga in Rio just let me now and I will make changes accordingly.
