Between busy work schedules and jam-packed holidays, it’s easy to forget to take a break and just breathe. But practising yoga or other forms of meditation is a great way to help you unwind. Learn new poses or practise old ones at one of the best yoga studios in Perth.
The Yoga Garage – Scarborough
The warmth from the friendly staff at The Yoga Garage extends into its yoga classes. Specialising in hot yoga, Sumit’s hot vinyasa flow, yin yoga and hot core pilates, this family-orientated studio has mounted heaters hidden in the ceiling. The light-filled space has mirrors decorating the walls to showcase body alignment, but don’t be alarmed, the instructors use clear language, making it easy to follow classes. The Yoga Garage attracts a diverse crowd of all ages and has a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, which is apparent in the way it gives back in community-based projects such as its involvement with the non-profit Classroom of Hope organisation.
The Yoga Vine – Perth CBD
Nestled in the heart of Perth Central Business District, The Yoga Vine is a boutique urban studio offering a place to escape everyday life. It opened its doors in 2014 with a mission to bring accessible yoga to the city workers. Here, you’ll find a mixed crowd of professionals finding their equilibrium before, during, and after working hours. The teachers recommend a quick 45-minute yoga class to assist with relaxation during a busy workday.
YogaLab – Fremantle
You’d be hard-pressed to find a yoga studio more charming than The YogaLab. Located in Fremantle’s historic Westend, The YogaLab can be found on the second floor of a beautifully converted 1920s warehouse. The dark hardwood floors and high white beams will bring about a state of calmness as soon as you walk through the doors. Perched above The Raw Kitchen on the mezzanine level, you can continue your self-care by purchasing a vegan treat when you exit.
Rooftop Yoga – Northbridge
Possibly Perth’s most unique yoga studio, Rooftop Yoga infuses movement, mindfulness and open skies. Located on the top floor of the Roe Street car park, you’ll find yourself practising your downward dog under the sun, surrounded by colourful chairs. The crowd skews younger and classes are ideal for beginners. The seasonal classes are the ultimate outdoor fitness choice. Try and make the sunset flow yoga class that runs on select Mondays in summer.
Kookaburra Creek Yoga Centre – Bedfordale in the Perth Hills

is a bright studio located in the fashionable and high-end Claremont quarter. The studio is run by yoga teacher Tamara Graham, who learned how to practise yoga in New York and believes that there is a type of yoga for everyone.

The classes are grounded in ISHTA (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda) and are very popular with the hip yogis in Perth.
iThrive – West Leederville
is a multidisciplinary healthcare and wellness centre, complete with its own yoga studio. Located in the trendy and family-orientated suburb of West Leederville, the tiny studio is hidden behind a garage door and leafy garden wall. The classes on offer here tend to have more of a clinical feel due to the healthcare practice behind the brand. There are also more specialised classes, including kids yoga as well as prenatal and postnatal yoga. Mat spaces are limited due to the studio’s size, so booking is a must. Grab a coffee afterwards from popular neighbourhood cafe, Hylin
