How can I find English-speaking yoga teachers in other parts of Japan, outside of Tokyo?

To find yoga classes in other parts of Japan, you may try the following websites; however, they are all in Japanese and English-speaking yoga teachers are rare outside of Tokyo.

Alternatively, try searching Google for yoga classes in your area. The information is likely to be all in Japanese.

Where is your yoga studio?

HelloYoga.com is not a yoga studio, but rather, it is a website giving information from various yoga teachers and studios across Japan.

I’d like to contribute an article to HelloYoga.com.

Great! Please see our article contribution guidelines.

Are work exchanges available? I’d like to do work for a yoga studio in exchange for free classes. Can you help me find a work exchange?

Most yoga studios in Japan are open to a work exchange arrangement on a case-by-case basis. If you are a qualified yoga teacher, many studios will allow you to attend other teachers’ classes either for free or at a large discount.

If you are not a qualified yoga teacher, there are still many tasks you could help a studio with. A yoga studio is a business and therefore has lots of administrative tasks in order to run. Foreign visitors need to be aware, however, that any work which involves dealing with studio customers, computer use, or paperwork may require a certain level of Japanese language ability. However, if you have other skills that may be attractive to the studio owner such as IT, website design/development, graphic design, or video production, then you may be able to come to a great win-win arrangement.

      • HelloYoga.com is not a yoga studio—we just maintain this website. However, you could contact the ones listed in our directory of yoga studios in Japan.
      • Also, you could try posting a note on our Facebook Page specifying that you are looking for a work exchange.
