While learning how to workout in German can be one of the best ways to learn the language, yoga is definitely one of the most difficult activities to take part in when you don’t understand the nature of the conversation. I sure this goes without explaining, you get it.
If you’re constantly on the lookout for new yoga retreats, meet-ups and meditation classes, Meetup Düsseldorf is a great place to start. If you’re looking for a place to settle, kickback and relax, here are a few English speaking yoga courses in Düsseldorf that the international community speaks highly of:
The International English Library is more than just a library, they offer a number of different English courses including Relaxation and Yoga Classes. No experience is necessary to join. The classes run on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings and courses run for 6 weeks ( €40 per course *subject to change*).
The International English Library is located in the Altstadt (right outside of the Heinrich-Heine-Allee underground).
Yogicway is more than just a studio. Liina Puustinen offers Iyengar Yoga classes in English and is quite active on the Meetup Düsseldorf yoga groups. Liina offers private classes, general classes, and workshops through the year. My experience with Liina was during a free trial class in the park – wonderful!
Yogicway is located in Oberkassel.
While the website is all in German, it has been said throughout the international community that the teachers do teach English courses. In addition, they also offer aerial classes and massages!
Your Yoga Now is located in Pempelfort.
Also an all-German website, but again a highly recommended yoga studio by international residents in the city. Yoga Lila offers the course plan online and all prices.
Yoga Lila is located in Neuss.
Vishnu Vibes yoga instructors do speak English (as other expats have mentioned) and they offer quite an array of courses. Courses include prenatal yoga, postnatal yoga, meditation, aerial yoga, children’s yoga and more.
Vishnu Vibes is located in Pempelfort.
Jiva Studios offers 40 degree Celsius hot yoga. You can also choose to buy a starter package for 5 days for 10 Euros. This is a great way to see if you understand the English instruction and you enjoy the course.

Bikram Yoga is the original hot yoga and offers classes in English. They’ve even got some inspirational packages for purchase including a 100-day yoga challenge which includes a photography shoot of all your poses in the last day.

My Urban Veda is a new and popular yoga studio with a website and courses completely in English. Here you can practice your Vinyasa moves, join a morning yoga class, work on your alignment, or join in on their yoga for athletes courses.
Yogakitchen’s motto is “cook and bake your body”, and offers a full weeks worth of courses including Hatha-Yoga, Vinyasa, prenatal yoga, baby gymnastics, pilates and more. While most of their courses are hosted in German, on Wednesday nights, Yogakitchen hosts an English Vinyasa yoga class.
