Melbourne's original home of
ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA
We have been teaching traditional Mysore-style Yoga for over 25 years in our tranquil studio in the heart of Fitzroy, Melbourne. Our unrivalled timetable offers classes every day of the year.
Whether you are a beginner or experienced, out of shape or athletic, the Ashtanga Vinyasa system of yoga is a powerful method for improving your flexibility, stamina and strength. Above all, it creates an atmosphere for opening the heart and consciousness, fostering a greater sense of wellbeing.
Sadly, it's now official that the studio must remain closed until further notice. While to some it seemed an inevitability, I guess we held hopes that our yoga home could continue at some level through these difficult times. No doubt it's hard for all studio owners, teachers and students alike and we've really struggled to let it go! But for the time being, we also now surrender to our communal yoga practice space entering a period of hibernation.
The beautiful thing of course is that the individual practice experience can continue largely unaffected. Create the environment at home that provides the elements most conducive to you maintaining your mat experience. Mix that with plenty of patience and self-acceptance and you can't go wrong.
All the best and remember how incredibly lucky we are to have this amazing sequence as our guide. It's an opportunity for structure and discipline to fully merge with our intuition to give us what we truly need from our practice on a daily basis.
Good luck with the next phase of your yoga journey and please stay in touch to let us know how it's going.

MEET GREG & TRACY
In the early 1990s we returned home from studying with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore South India. We began teaching the first daily Ashtanga vinyasa classes in Melbourne.
After a number of years moving between some great spaces we finally knuckeled down to restoring the 450sq metres of our Argyle St studio.
A lot of labour and love went into the creation of a truly unique home for our students
Blessed with highly trained teachers, the Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Melbourne holds decades of experience that is available to our students.
We frequently hold specialist workshops and immersions with globally renowned teachers as supplementary knowledge for our students and community.
A communal kitchen and lounge infused with the aroma of home brewed Chai tea made daily , have become a fond memory from yogis around the globe and a place to share stories and experiences.
The Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Melbournes warmth was born out of the bonds of close friendships and dedication to this traditional yoga practise. We look forward to meeting you on the mat.
"Do your practice, all is coming."
- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
