Uprising is a one stop shop for yoga whether you’re just starting out or have been practicing for years. Located on Ferry Road, this unique studio is situated inside of the larger bouldering gym but is its own spacious, sound proof and purpose built environment.

Yoga at Uprising is all about keeping things simple, relevant and relatable and the team sticks to this mission in everything that they do.

The timetables are easy to follow, consistent and well balanced. The different class types offer plenty of options to suit your skill level and the instructors bring a range of yoga philosophies to the table. Last but not least, the membership package is one of the most approachable you’re likely to find. $29/week earns you unlimited access to Uprising’s yoga classes, bouldering gym and fitness gym with just a four week minimum contract. Uprising’s outlook on yoga and all that it entails is completely refreshing and makes it far easier than expected to simply turn up.

Here you’ll find classes like Vinyasa Flow which focuses on breath centred, flowing movements. Designed for all skill levels these classes are a great place to start if you want to foster ease of movement. Awaken classes, meanwhile, are all about connecting mind and body at the start of the day. Rest & Restore classes, on the other hand, are a chance to decompress with a slower pace and supported poses. Beginners Yoga is the perfect jumping off point if you’re totally new or simply want to tune up.

Whatever experience or outcome you’re after, there’s a class here for you. The friendly instructors can help you decide where to start, where to head and offer guidance and support tailored to wherever you may be in your yoga journey. They get that everyone’s different and understand that learning together as teacher and student is one of the most important parts of yoga.

Uprising also offers a unique Yoga Study option. This six week course covers similar content to a yoga training course and is an excellent way to expand your understanding of yoga with others who enjoy it. If you’re not there yet, check out the Yoga Fundamentals course. Also six weeks in length, this course is an opportunity to explore the basic aspects and philosophy of yoga step-by-step.
