Time Out Melbourne

New book The Best of Yoga sifts through the thousands of yoga classes this city has to offer and comes up with the best - and the strangest

The yoga world is terribly complex. Some studios offer more than 300 classes every week, some others 20 different yoga styles. But there’s a new book that sifts through it all for you. The BEST of YOGA team has spent six months researching hundreds of classes in Melbourne, has gathered feedback from countless local yogis and didn’t mind the 5am wake up calls to find out where’s the really great yoga in Melbourne.

Melbourne’s most weird and wonderful yoga experiences

1. Immerse yourself in a“soul massage”- during a singing bowl meditation at Ohana Yoga in Albert Park.

2. Float through your practice like you’ve never done it before, following the innovative and unique fusion of Yoga and Tai Chi at SomaChi in South Yarra or at the brand new Collingwood studio.

3. Watch the world upside down while suspended in gorgeous silks at the airy and spacious Body Flow Yoga studio in Windsor.

4. Practice within the serenity of St Marks church yard, immersed in light that’s seeping through multicoloured windows at Fitzroy’s Yoga Dance of Life.

5. Listen to talks by visiting saints and discuss their pearls of wisdom with fellow yogis over the complimentary veggie dinner at Urban Yoga, right in the buzzing CBD.

6. Be taught by a cheerful Swami in an orange robe and enjoy the satisfaction of supporting a global non for profit organisation at Yoga in Daily Life’s Richmond studio.
