Beyond Yoga offers a good mix of yoga, zumba, and antigravity yoga classes. For yoga, it has beginner and intermediate levels of Vinyasa and Ashtanga, and it also has classes for Yin, Hatha, Restorative, Hot, and Jivamukti.
Beyond has six branches, which makes it an accessible choice for people who often find themselves in different cities. Their branches are in: Il Terrazzo (3F) along Tomas Morato, Westgate Center in Alabang, Metropointe Center (2F) in Greenhills, 38 Rockwell (3F) in Rockwell Center, and Serendra (2F) in BGC). We’ve been to the branches in Greenhills, Serendra, and Rockwell.
Showers and lockers are available. Water and other drinks are for sale. Yoga mats and props are also provided by the studio, but feel free to bring your own mat. For the antigravity classes, make sure to come in leggings and a top with sleeves to avoid burns. For zumba classes, come in rubber shoes and clothing that you can move freely and comfortably in.
Rates for the yoga classes are P550 for one class, P4,600 for 10 classes, and P8,700 for 20 classes, while monthly unlimited classes cost P4,600 for one month and P46,000 for one year. Dance or zumba classes are P450 per class, and the monthly unlimited package for all yoga and dance classes costs P6,000. Meanwhile, antigravity classes cost P650 per class, P4,600 for 10 classes, and P7,500 for one month of unlimited antigravity yoga.

Beyond Yoga is probably one of the most franchised yoga studios, having branches from Alabang to Quezon City. I used to go here for their Ashtanga classes, which they hold regularly (every weekday morning in Serendra) and with both kinds (mysore or self-practiced and led). The mysore ones may not be indicated in the schedule, but on the event that you did chance upon it, the teachers are generous with their introduction and will guide you through. I have been trying to be more regular with Ashtanga ever since and I have Beyond Yoga (and Teacher Rosey) to thank for that.
I’ve only tried the Vinyasa class in their Serendra but I’m definitely coming back to try their other classes as they do offer a good variety of them. Their studio is spacious enough to fit a good number of people. Bubbles, my instructor, was really nice. I appreciated how she would assist students in variations she thought they would be able to do.
The antigravity classes are more challenging than they first seem, and they work your core pretty well (shoutout to Addy! She’s a great teacher!). As with any yoga class, I appreciate how there is emphasis on the breath, which is crucial when you’re hanging upside down! Some studios are smaller than others (such as the Rockwell branch) so it would be wise to always have your spot reserved.
