The yoga revolution is well and truly underway; don’t get left behind by the tide of toning and tightening. Not sure where to start? Check out these lovely Melbourne studios!
We’ll begin in Berwick, where one of Yoga Plus’s gorgeous studios is based. Founded by the award-winning yoga maestro Andi Kiprillis, Yoga Plus offers a varied range of classes designed to suit any level of experience and ability. If you’re a brand new student, you can get your first class totally free, followed by seven days of unlimited yoga for just 25 bucks.
“When I arrived in Berwick, I looked around where I could continue to practise yoga. YOGA PLUS is the best in the area! The studio is light and pleasant with its timber floor. The teachers are great, friendly and dedicated to their students. Everybody is different, so no ego, no competition, no judgement, just props for those who need them and a lot of laughs and giggles!” – NathalieW
We don’t want to leave Berwick yet; it’s nice here. Fortunately, our second studio can be found here too! We speak, of course, of Body Yoga, where you can try your hand at everything from vinyasa and hatha yoga to special yoga designed just for mums and babies. New students can grab a seven-day unlimited pass for $25, with a $90 five-class pass available for everyone else.
“I highly recommend Mary and her team at Body Yoga. The classes are held in a purpose-built studio, which is fantastic and welcoming. The classes are designed for beginner to advanced level, and is truly suited to everybody.” – martykell
On to St Kilda now, proud home to the delightfully bright and airy Ihana Yoga studio – a purpose-built, beautifully decorated yoga haven, where Jenni Morrison-Jack and her talented team help folks from every walk of life rediscover their inner harmony. You can help yourself to ten days of unlimited yoga for $25 here, and they also offer amazing corporate classes.
“This is a wonderful yoga studio. Very relaxing ambiance and energy. The teachers are caring and knowledgeable and always looking to bring a new level of awareness to everyone’s practice. Classes are vinyasa based, and quite a few teachers have a strong Ashtanga background. Many adjustments are offered for a custom practice. For all levels – beginner to advanced.” – CarmenRosa
Everyone likes dogs! Granted, they don’t have anything to do with UpDog Yoga, but putting them in the name was a smart idea. Anyway, UpDog Yoga is a slick, modern space where many high-quality yoga-ings occur, and the lessons are very accessible for anyone who wants to get a piece of that sweet stretching action. If you’re a first-timer, you can get a 21-day intro pass for $60.
“At last a studio with a strong sense of community where you are actively encouraged to engage with your fellow yogis and go on the journey together. Great variety of teachers always offering new insights. Best of all the room isn’t too hot!” – AdamJ_1
Whether you’re talking about healthy food or wrestling extravaganzas, the word “raw” is generally a herald of good things to come. Yoga is no exception, and r.a.w. studios have created a kind of cool, cutting-edge underground community where the denizens of Melbourne can get a seriously good workout. Get the one-week unlimited intro pass for $45 to see what all the fuss is about.
