Weekly Free Yoga Classes

The benefits of yoga cover not just the physical but the mental and emotional as well. Regular practice of yoga can help you sleep better, maintain a healthy weight, reduce back pain, relieve stress and help you tone up as well! Our Yoga classes are one of our most popular programs and regularly fill up. This semester no sign up is required to take part in each class, but places in each class are limited so arriving early will make sure you avoid disappointment.

Please note:

  • Classes are limited in size
  • Spots are given on a first in best dressed basis
  • Sign ups are no longer required this semester
  • A small number of mats will be available to borrow, but priority may be given to those who can provide their own mats. We recommend you buy your own mat, a good quality basic mat costs around $6 at Big W.


This semester we’re offering two classes per week during semester and an additional class each week of exams.

Every Tuesday, 5:30-6:30 PM
(Excluding Mid-semester break and Melbourne Cup Day)

Every Friday, 8:00-9:00 AM
(Excluding Mid-semester break and exams)
