Our vision for the Garden of Yoga studio is an inner city oasis of calm, colour and creativity. A sustainable, nurturing and inspiring space accommodating Antigravity aerial yoga classes, small group and individual Yoga sessions and studio pilates sessions including reformer. Garden of Yoga is a beautiful boutique studio with a maximum of three students for Antigravity sessions, so you will always receive plenty of support and attention as we help you work towards your goals!
We were recently featured in Paddle You Own Canoe
We are located here at rear of 10 Separation St Northcote, just across the road from Northcote Plaza, if you are driving is it probably easiest to park there. We are really close to the 86 tram and Northcote train station and have lots of space to park your bike. Enter the studio via the laneway off Balgonie place. From Separation St, turn into Balgonie place by Expresso Alley Cafe and turn left at the iguana mural, you'll see our light, sign and doorbell as you walk down the lane.
Pricing is as follows: $70 for one, $40 each for two or $30 each for three students in our private and semi-private sessions. It's always $30 per person in our sessions marked 'individual bookings available'. Yin Yoga classes are $20 each.
Want to come more than once a week? Save $5 off your second session and $10 off your third!
Please be mindful that in a small studio, late cancellations and no-shows have a big impact. If you have to change your booking please give us as much notice possible, so we can fill your space and be aware that a cancellation fee applies for less than 24 hours notice.
Please be aware that I schedule a 15 minute gap between classes and that if you arrive more than 15 minutes early you might disrupt the previous group.
What to wear
For AntiGravity yoga, wear workout wear that covers armpits (sleeve) and legs, or if you want to wear a singlet, bring a top with sleeves with you for the poses that require it. Cotton or cotton blend fabric is best (non-slippery) and most comfortable. Wear something you can move easily in, that will not be too loose or floppy, remember, you will be upside down! Leggings, tracksuit or yoga pants are great- jeans or rough stiff fabric will be uncomfortable. No socks (unless they are grip socks). PLEASE NO JEWELRY, MAKE UP OR FAKE TAN- this will damage the hammocks.
Wear comfortable clothes you can move easily in for yoga and pilates classes.
When to eat
Don’t have a heavy meal before class, but a light snack can be helpful especially if you are prone to dizziness or motion sickness.
Depending on your health fund, you might be able to get a rebate on your sessions at Garden of Yoga. Here is a table that shows the details for each fund.
