Relax and unwind after a hard day at work, with a class of yoga in the heart of the city. Urban Yoga, Level 3, 123 Swanston Street, runs a 1.5hr power yoga class on Monday and Thursdays beginning at 6pm. Classes are designed for all levels of aspiring and experienced yogis, in a non-threatening relaxed environment, and are very reasonably priced at $15 ($12 concession), which includes a meal afterwards.
Four different teachers with slight variations on teaching style, bringing either free moving postures with music in the background and mantra mediation (generally Monday classes) or strength endurance stances and silent meditation (Thursdays). Your body will be challenged and your mind freed, every time.
After stretching your limbs and rejuvenating your mind, enjoy a two course delicious and nutritious vegetarian meal (vegan and gluten-free options available on request), and make new friends amongst the welcoming crowd.
