Affordable yoga for students
Yoga is still as popular, and expensive as ever. Despite the myriad of options in Richmond, it wasn't until Yoga in Daily Life was recommended to me that I finally found what I was looking for.
Firstly, as a part-time student it was a miracle to find a Yoga studio that support students (or those with concession cards) – at $100 for a 10 class pass, it's impossible not to give it a go. Casual class rates are the same for everyone, regardless if you're a student, so the most cost effective option is to go with the 10 class pass. Make sure you have your valid student/concession card with you upon payment. You can use this pass as little or as regularly as you like during a three month period.
Secondly, the location of the studio is away from the busyness of Richmond's main roads, nestled amongst a quiet suburban pocket behind Burnley Road. This makes for a distraction-free atmosphere, where you feel like you can genuinely switch off during the class.
Yoga classes usually run for 90 minutes, and includes a meditation practice toward the end of the class. Depending on your ability, there are different classes to suit, and pre-natal classes are also available. If you're new to yoga or meditation, Yoga in Daily Life also hosts beginner short courses.
With yoga and meditation classes that run mid mornings and evenings (every day except Saturday evenings and Sundays), the timetable offers the flexibility that students need – that also accommodates the full-time worker.
No need to bring your own yoga mat, they are provided along with everything you may need for a comfortable class. For the price list and Richmond timetable, see Yoga in Daily Life's website.
Yoga in Daily Life also has studios in Ivanhoe, Doncaster and Pascoe Vale.
