About RAW Yoga Malta
Welcome to the Studio
Hi! I’m Govinda, founder of RAW Yoga Studio Malta.
Yoga is an amazing journey of self-discovery and its practice has given me so many benefits to my life. By opening my yoga studio in Malta I hope to share these benefits with everyone, whilst we all get inspired and surrounded by wonderful people.
Raw Yoga Studio aims to offer different types of styles and levels to fulfil different people’s needs.
I hope everybody enjoys their time at our studio which we’ve created with love.

May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
Discover Yoga at RAW
Though yoga has its roots in ancient Indian philosophies, modern-day yoga is as diverse as the lives of those who practice it.
At RAW Yoga, we offer a wide range of yoga classes that help build inner and outer strength through a combination of movement, breathing, meditation, and chanting.
Whether you want to be more flexible, build muscles, explore your spirituality, or connect with other like-minded people, yoga can help you achieve it. Different students respond to different styles of yoga, so we encourage you to try a range of classes until you find the one that speaks to you.
Though yoga styles and teaching methods may vary, our expertly trained teachers share a passion for helping students develop a healthy body and a deeper connection to who they really are. That’s why we are called RAW — because yoga helps us rediscover our original, natural state.
At the end of your practice, we hope you’ll take your newfound serenity and strength out into the world, and spread the kindness and joy you discover here into the lives of people around you.
About the Studio
When you enter the studio, take a moment to breathe deeply. Conscious breathing is a great first step in forging a deeper connection to yourself and what’s in your heart.
Our softly lit lounge areas, designed using all raw materials and gently scented with essential oils, provide the ideal atmosphere for peaceful introspection. Here you can retreat from the hectic always-on pace of modern life, let go of everyday worries, and just breathe.
Our two studio spaces feature modern enhancements for a variety of yoga practices. We supply the full range of yoga props and are happy to be able to offer Aerial Yoga and Wall Yoga alongside more traditional styles.
After class, feel free to linger and recharge with an herbal tea, a fresh juice, or an energizing snack. If you’re looking for natural skincare products, eco-friendly yoga gear, or mindful gifts, browse our Boutique Shop which features a selection of all-natural products hand-picked by Govinda.
We have poured our hearts into creating this beautiful yoga centre and truly hope you’ll love it as much as we do.

New to the Studio?
If you’re a newcomer to RAW Yoga, here are a few tips to help you have an incredible first visit.
Which class should I choose?
We suggest you take a look at [our class descriptions] and choose a class based on your reasons for wanting to try yoga. If you’re still not sure, give us a call or drop in and we’ll help you find the right class.
Should I sign up ahead of time?
Yes, please! By signing up in advance, you reserve your spot in class and help us manage the flow of students in the studio, so we can be sure we’re offering the right classes at the right time. To sign up, please register on MindBody and then choose your first class from [our class schedule].
When should I arrive?
Arrive 15 minutes before the start time so you have time to get changed and settled before class begins.
What should I wear?
Any loose-fitting and comfortable clothing can be worn to yoga. Don’t worry about getting special yoga clothes for your first class, just wear something that won’t restrict your movement and will allow you to keep cool while moving your body.
Do I need my own yoga mat?
If you have one, you can bring your own yoga mat; if not, we have mats at the studio for you to use during class.
Do I need to bring anything else?
Please bring a reusable water bottle — we like to take care of the earth by avoiding disposable plastic bottles. You can refill your water bottle at the studio. If you know you sweat a lot, you should also bring a small towel to dry off during class.
