If you fancy yourself a good downward facing dogger, a skilled crow poser or simply a yogi in training, you will love all the studios that Sydney
has to offer. From sweating like crazy, hanging upside down or listing to the waves
crash beside you, there is a yoga studio to suit every need. Here is a list of Sydney’s best yoga studios to get some zen.
Yoga By The Sea
Technically Yoga by the Sea isn’t a studio, in fact it is a lot better than a studio – it’s (as the name suggests) by the sea. Located inside Bondi’s famous Icebergs Club, here you will be able to do sun salutations in the great outdoors with the ocean breeze keeping you energised throughout the practice. Classes are $25 each which includes entry to the Icebergs Club where you can go for a swim or sauna after your class.
Power Living is a yogi’s paradise. Located only 100 metres away from the beautiful ocean water of Manly beach and plenty of wholefood cafes. You can come here for all your yoga needs as you can buy mats, funky yoga wear, candles, inspiring books and salt lamps. As far as the yoga goes, you’re in safe hands as the classes are done by teachers who also offer teacher training. Make sure you pack your towel as some of their classes can get very hot and heavy.
If you like your yoga to be a fast paced workout, then you will love this Flow Athletic. In fact many professional athletes come here including the nearby Rabbitohs rugby players which is a testament to the quality of the classes. They also have Male Only classes available and the studio also has other classes to complement your yoga including fitness, training, and strength classes.

Ever wanted to know what it is like to fly? Well the antigravity classes at SKY-LAB might be the closest thing to it! During the class you are suspended in a hammock while the instructor leads you through a light, invigorating practice helping you into positions you wouldn’t otherwise be able to achieve. These classes do wonders for compressed joints and are the ideal way to expand your practice. You’re guaranteed to feel like a million bucks afterwards.

The Space Studio
Located in the bustling precinct of Barangaroo, The Space Studio provides a little slice of serenity in the heart of the city. The sleek, minimalist design instantly makes you feel relaxed and also has plenty of natural light seeping through the windows. There are many classes on offer including the hot power vinyasa which is a sure fire way to sweat out any toxins. There’s also a more gentle yin practice which improves flexibility while releasing tension. They also provide guided meditation classes too.
