This story is different


True Yoga Heidelberg began organically in 2015 with yoga sessions at Neckarwiese in Heidelberg. Despite challenges, we persevered and now, in 2023, our community is growing. Our name, True Yoga, was inspired by respected yogis and gurus.


sthira-sukham-asanam –Patanjāi Yogasutra Verse 46 chapter 2.

A steady, well-balanced, effortful but comfortable asana (posture), along with swift and deep breathing, progressing with a concentrated awareness, is the instrument of experiencing the union (yoga) within.

My class at True Yoga was wonderful for many reasons, first, the clarity and cleanliness... of the room and bathroom, every detail is carefully studied to make the experience pleasant. The class, I loved it. You can explore all the movement possibilities and understand your body in each practice. Additionally, if you want to advance a little further, you have the option of personalized classes. There is extreme respect for each person who attends the class and each teacher and it shows because everyone smiles. Additionally, at True Yoga we speak Spanish, English and German!

True Yoga is a unique yoga studio in Heidelberg where all classes are taught in English.... It is a great place for international people to practice yoga and connect with others.

Couldn't write enough on how amazing and beneficial Manoj's yoga classes were for me... 😊!As a complete beginner, I joined the pregnancy yoga classes and felt at the right place from the first session. Manoj shares his passion from the heart very skillfully and make everyone feel cared for individually, even during a group class. He's attentive to every member of the group in a warm and relaxed atmosphere which brings a very positive vibe to the class. I can only highly recommend Manoj's classes!And for all the non-german speakers, the classes are given in English 😊read more

I recently discovered yoga, not only as a form of sports activity, but, first of all, as... a way of life. At the very beginning of your journey, you need to understand that this is not just a “tribute to fashion” - it is an attentive and careful attitude towards yourself, your body, getting to know it.... It is very sad that we pay so little attention to ourselves. In the pursuit of material wealth, people have forgotten that our main wealth is our body with its unlimited capabilities and our consciousness, as the crown of the ingenious structure of the human body.It is very important that the guide to the “world of yoga” is an experienced and qualified specialist who can correctly position the main ideas and clearly explain the essence of the process. I was lucky, because from the very first lesson I found myself with Manoj, a wonderful teacher and a wonderful person.P.S. If you want to change your life for the better, start with yourself - start with the “philosophy of your body” - start with YOGA!read more

I visited Heidelberg from Seattle, where I am a Yogi with 15+ years of experience and an... ex-competitive dancer, and was looking for an authentic yoga studio. I was so impressed by Manoj's class as I truly felt like I had the mind-body connection that my self was lacking.Also, the studio is absolutely gorgeous (honestly, the prettiest yoga studio I've ever been to) situated in the heart of Heidelberg with large windows with the sun pouring in - which is a huge plus!I highly, highly, highly, recommend going to True Yoga Heidelberg (even if you're here on holiday and take just one class, like me. Manoj makes you feel so special!) and take Manoj's class, you will not be disappointed!read more

Trueyoga is an absolute recommendation! You feel totally comfortable and welcome from the... first second. Manoj is an incredibly good teacher and you will be accompanied individually. Even as a beginner you don't have to worry at all, everything is explained and shown to you in detail and you get specific help. Afterwards you not only feel great physically, I felt a great effect, especially mentally. You are much more relaxed the day after, but also more concentrated. Thanks! I will definitely come again! 😍read more

"Welcome home..."I will never forget this sentence. The yoga studio was recommended to... me by a friend, this is where I really practiced yoga for the first time. In my first yoga (ashtanga) class, Manoj said to me, welcome home. It was a bit strange for me at first because I had neither experience nor did I know if I would continue after the first hour. After 6 months, looking back, I can say that he hit the mark with this sentence. I was looking for a yoga studio and found a home in the Ashtanga practice and this studio. Manoj has an open and incredibly warm manner with which he also leads the yoga classes. He attaches great importance to breathing, individual practice and a benevolent cooperation, so that it was the ideal place for me to experience and learn yoga as a holistic concept. Thanks a lot for this!read more

I've been practicing Ashtanga yoga at True Yoga studio for a while now. Manoj is a great... instructor who created a beautiful space that is very welcoming, peaceful and inspiring. Manoj is very dedicated and attentive to every individual in the class, making you feel comfortable and adapting the practice to your own needs. He always suggested modifications when I had an injury so I was still able to continue with my yoga practice. I really enjoy classes at the studio, I always feel calmer and relaxed after the class. I definitely recommend this yoga studio for everyone who wants to continue with their yoga practice or to someone who wants to start, but doesn't know where to more

I started my practice here and have been enjoying it more than I had anticipated. Manoj... is very attentive and patient with new comers and makes each class a learning tranformative experience. Both my physical and mental health have improved since starting my practice and I truly recommend True Yoga to all yogis, (both newbies such as I or those who are more experienced). I never committed to anything long term, but this I see myself doing for a long time going more

By far the best yoga class I have been a part of during my time in Heidelberg. Being a... yoga instructor myself with an advance practice in yoga, I have taken many yoga sessions in multiple countries. Its safe to say that the session at True yoga by Manoj will stay in my memory not just for the practice but for the atmosphere & energy! I highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone in and around Heidelberg 🙂read more
