Yoga in Melbourne, is ever increasing in popularity, and the variety of Yoga classes in Melbourne has never been greater. Whether you want to make use of the warmer weather to get outdoors and enjoy some time alone, or you would rather seek shelter and solace within indoor yoga studios, Melbourne has something for everyone. If you need a little inspiration, perhaps you might like to practise yoga in one of these interesting locations?
The Beach – Try: Middle Park Beach
Salty sea air and the sound of gentle waves lapping the shoreline, the beach is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing yoga session. The repetitive sounds of the water allow you to gently relax into a meditative state, and the flexibility and softness of the sand can allow you to try poses you may not be brave enough to try in conventional yoga studios in Melbourne. Middle Park Beach is far enough along the Port Phillip Bay foreshore, that you can escape the lively sounds and activity of the vibrant and bustling St Kilda Beach, but you are still only 10 minutes from the city, so you don’t need to drive for hours down the surf coast, to find a place of quiet solitude on Victoria’s coastline.
Mountain – Try: Falls Creek in Summer
You may be familiar with Falls Creek during the winter ski season; snow up to your knees and warm hot cocoa by the fire, but have you ever been to Falls Creek in Summer? In Summer, the snow melts down off the ski fields allowing the wildflowers to bloom, making the mountain vista a completely different landscape. With a panoramic view of lush, green, rolling hills, a mountain top in summer months can be one of the best natural yoga studios in Melbourne, and the perfect location to unwind and revitalise. The temperature on the Victoria mountains are always a few degrees lower than Metropolitan Melbourne, so when the heat starts to creep up in the city, you can have the relief of crisp mountain air, allowing you to practise yoga outside even in the peak of summer.
Park – Try: Royal Botanic Gardens
Any good Melbournian will tell you about ‘The Tan’ running track that surrounds the Royal Botanic Gardens on St Kilda Road. The Tan is buzzing any time, day and night, with amateur and professional runners alike, all enjoying the city views and convenience of being only 5 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, it truly is a Melbourne icon. But have you ever stepped inside the ornate metal gates, and actually taken a stroll through the Royal Botanic gardens? The path will take you on a maze of parks and lakes as you snake around from one side of the gardens to the other. The beautifully manicured lawns and the quiet sanctuary the gardens offer from one of Melbourne’s busiest roads, is a beautiful and convenient spot to set up a yoga mat and enjoy a yoga session in the quiet, lush, green surrounds. Meet some friends there after work, and find a quiet spot to set up your mats and enjoy a yoga session together!
