Yoga has rapidly become one of the trendiest forms of mind, body and soul conditioning in Taipei. Space Yoga is a private club that embraces an image of culture and exquisite taste. Its stand-alone building in Tienmu reflects founder Matthew Allison's unique point of view and insistence on these principles. Unlike many other chain concept stores, SPACE Yoga exudes a kind of warmth and intimacy that encourages you want to take your shoes off, let go of your stresses and listen to your body's needs.

A. All classrooms at SPACE Yoga Tienmu are individually temperature-controlled for hot yoga classes. Hot yoga classes are conducted in heated rooms where the temperature is maintained between 36 and 40 degrees Celsius. This helps promote perspiration, as well as increase flexibility.
B. Hot, Flow, Restorative, Anusara and Ashtanga yoga classes are available. There are over 15 classes daily, all led by internationally-accredited instructors. There are also regular workshops and retreats held by overseas yoga masters.
