WE LOVE YOU TOO!
Thus far I have done Iyengar and Relax and Renew Yoga classes. There are Flow and Heated Flow Yoga classes too. The business side of the studio has me hooked too. I loved that I could sign up online, got a little RFID pass on my first visit, classes can be booked online, and that everything WORKS (a rarity!). My posture feels great after each session. Have to figure out how to work in 2 classes a week versus one. ~ Claire
Down Under Yoga has amassed some of the biggest names in yoga instructors, but is still one of the most welcoming, authentic communities I’ve ever experienced. You can literally feel the difference when you walk thru the doors. Their focus is where it should be: teaching and learning, not merchandising. It’s a beautifully renovated space, always very clean and neat – and the staff are awesome. Highly recommend! ~ Rick
