Life is hectic, work is stressful and there’s a lot happening right now. Here are the best yoga studios in Canberra to find a little zen.

Stemming from ancient Indian texts, yoga is an important part of religious cultures from South and Southeast Asia. The benefits of the exercise have been widely adopted by people all over the world, and you can find yoga classes just about anywhere you go. Canberra has a number of excellent teachers and some beautiful spaces in which to practise. When this stressful world has got your muscles all knotted up, take a deep breath and check out one of these studios.

Canberra has many different yoga classes on offer

1. Flow Yoga

Yoga Studio

There are few places more atmospheric than an art gallery, so that’s exactly where this yoga takes place. Teaming up with the NewActon arts and culture precinct, Flow Yoga runs sessions among the art in the Nishi Gallery. There are just six classes a week, but teacher Odona also occasionally runs special classes to coincide with other arts events such as the Art, Not Apart festival, and guests at the nearby Ovolo Hotel can attend classes for free. Once you’ve finished your practice, leave some time for a different kind of self-care and visit one of the restaurants or bars in the NewActon precinct, and salute the tequila sunrise!

2. Rise Studio

Yoga Studio

This beautiful space in the south of Canberra is not just a studio, but also a community. Rise aims to offer a space for people to connect, relax and take some time out of their busy days for themselves. Along with conventional yoga classes they also run workshops to help people create mindfulness routines that they can implement in their everyday lives. With a focus on mobility and inclusivity, Rise aims to create a safe space for all people to participate.

3. Canberra Yoga Space

The Canberra Yoga Space is also a great option for people wanting to train as teachers, or learn more about a range of different yoga styles.

4. SOULution

Yoga Studio

This popular inner-city studio is right in the middle of hipster Lonsdale Street. Sweat it out in a heated ‘Soul Burn’ class or cool off with a slow Yin practice.

SOULution also runs sessions by the lake for those wanting some fresh air. If you’re lucky you may have some enthusiastic pups joining in for some downward dog.
