Alive Yoga

Post by Mark


I just spent the good part of the morning thinking about if I should actually post about this place or not. You see, I have a few well kept secret goodies that I haven’t shared on the blog like this small little Korean place I go to in Mahboula or where I go play tennis (they even have indoors) for just KD5 an hour. Sometimes I don’t post about things because I don’t want them to change, like I don’t want to not be able to play tennis whenever I want to because now they’re suddenly always booked. But, I don’t have that many secret places because most of the time I put the blog ahead of my personal interests. And this is the case with this new yoga studio I passed by yesterday called Alive Yoga.


I’m not a yoga buff but I do go do yoga every now and then, mostly for stretching purposes and to keep me somewhat flexible because I weight lift. My go to yoga place is The Palms since you don’t have to be a member and it costs just KD5 for a class. But yesterday I tried Alive Yoga and I think it’s my new favorite place, not just as favorite yoga place but like in general, my favorite new place in Kuwait. It’s located in a two story villa in Bneid Al Gar and the place is just really well done. The ground floor has a very cozy waiting area and small boutique filled with yoga gear while the top floor has two large yoga studios one of which brings in a lot of beautiful day light.


They have a bunch of yoga instructors and a lot of different classes available through out the day. Some of the classes are mixed while some are for women only. If all this already isn’t enough to sell you on them, Alive Yoga also have a very practical and functional iPhone app which you use to check out what classes are available and for signing up to them. Price wise they’re more expensive than what I usually pay at Palms. A single class is KD12 but if you buy 5 classes it’s KD50. They also have unlimited plans which start at KD95 a month. That means if you do yoga three times a week it’s like you’re paying KD7.9 a class or if you do 6 classes a week it’s basically KD3.9 a class. Right now though they have a new members offer where they are offering 2 weeks unlimited classes for just KD24. Thats what I signed up to and I’m going to make sure I take advantage of it by trying as many different instructors and classes as I can in this period.

    Agree with you on not revealing the less crowded tennis place but I’m pretty sure you’ll be helping the owners (and prospective customers) if you point out the Korean joint in Mahboola :)

    Yea I was tempted to try it but damn those prices! I think the monthly memberships might be worth it, but only for an extreme yoga buff. If only the membership can be shared……..

    or you know download one of the BAZILLION yoga videos offline, free courses from beginners to expert and do it in the comfort and space of your own home.

    I can’t stand the trendiness of these places :P

      The ambiance of a yoga studio and the general atmosphere totally makes yoga for me, especially with the cool-downs and meditations afterwards. A youtube video can not compare.

    I hope that if you ever find out about my hole-in-the-wall Thai place in Salmiya; you keep it to yourself.

    I will beat you with a Shani, trample over your body for their tom-yum.

    The pictures are just amazing; wondering how hot it gets in that room with the great natural light.

    Hello Mark,

    If you could kindly please let me know the place you could rent the tennis courts I would be very grateful as I’ve been searching for a decently priced place in town for a while!

    Many Thanks!

    Hello All,
    My name is Reena, I’m from UK. Visiting Kuwait for 3 weeks, staying in mahboula, any cool yoga places this side of town?
    I like the look of alive yoga but I suppose it would take me ages to get there? I’m totally new here – landed yesterday!
