About Thrive Yoga & Pilates

The personal yoga school of Amsterdam Oost

The personal
yoga school of
Amsterdam Oost

Thrive is more than 'just' a yoga studio, it is a place where you feel at home and at ease. Get away from the daily grind for a yoga or pilates class in a small group, a moment with attention for yourself, your moment. That is also the place that the founder and owner of Thrive, Marco Rodie envisaged creating in 2012. After a career in the Royal Navy and in business, he wants as many people as possible to experience what Yoga can mean in everyday life. Inspired by the styles of Vinyasa (Jivamukti) Yoga and Yin Yoga, the studio specialises in classes which combines both the relaxation of Yin and the power of Yang.


The name Thrive comes from the verb "to thrive" which means "to flourish, to blossom, to grow, to become aware". Thrive Yoga offers opportunities for individual growth and development so that you can live a healthier and more conscious life.

"Let's Thrive together!"

What makes Thrive special according to founder Marco Rodie?

"Thrive distinguishes itself through its personal approach. For example, when you enter the studio there is a mat and props ready for you, the studio is attractively lit and the teacher welcomes you by name. Because we work with small groups, the teacher knows most of the participants. This way you get personal instructions during the class and the teacher walks through the hall to give physical 'assists'. At Yoga we always pay attention to the yoga philosophy in addition to natural aspects such as the breath, movement and meditation. After the class the teacher serves a cup of tea and there is plenty of time for questions and a chat."

I have taken yoga classes at about 10 different yoga schools in Amsterdam. With every move I made, but also my needs in yoga style changed over the years. Thrive Yoga has been my absolute favourite so far. The school offers both an intensive form of yoga (Vinyasa and Jivamukti) and a gentler form (Yin yoga). The combination of the yoga styles, the small classes, the experienced teachers, and the fact that you can also follow good Pilates classes , makes Thrive Yoga special for me. I always appreciated the extra attention in the form of lit candles and a cup of tea served on the mat at the end of the class. There are all kinds of subscriptions available and I also find the trial subscriptions very attractive. If you want to experience more peace, work on your body and do that in a super nice environment, this is your place.

After many Trial Classess at various yoga studios in Amsterdam, I finally ended up at Thrive and it felt right from the start! The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, the instructors are friendly and all have their own style of teaching, so there is something for everyone. It's also nice that you can sit down with a cup of tea after the class and let the effects of the class work in on you.

Thrive is a very nice yoga studio. Many good teachers, small groups and a wide range of classes. The music and smell during the classes remind me of the yoga retreat I once did in Nepal, so I feel like I'm back in that moment again! A lot of personal attention to the postures, but also the theory behind yoga is covered. I've been coming here for years with a lot of pleasure 🙂

I have been a loyal customer of Thrive for years. They are wonderful studios with a nice variety of classes at all times of the day. Even after the lockdown, I still follow an online class every week and I also do the occasional parent-child yoga class. Especially now, sitting at home, it's extra nice and important to keep doing yoga. Thrive has set up the online classes well and professionally, they remain of high level and easy to follow and although online will never equal a studio experience, it comes close!

I already had some experience with yoga but at the beginning of 2020 I decided to give it more space in my life and I bought the block for 5 Trial Classes in my neighbourhood at the Thrive studio on Ijburg. I felt immediately welcome by the warm and positive energy in this cozy studio and the personal attention you get during the classes but also with regard to any administrative questions you have you are immediately helped by the great team. The variety of yoga classes (also some great pilates classes) offered for all different levels and the skilled and super nice teachers in a comfortable and personal setting really impressed me from the start. Now, after more than a year of becoming a regular yoga practitioner, I can say without hesitation that yoga has really changed my life and that the wonderful team at Thrive has (had) a real impact on my journey.

I don't want to do anything else! There is also a wide variety of classes on offer so there is always something for you. I can only recommend this studio!
