You’ll find this yoga studio down Love-grove Lane, a row of owner operator businesses in East Hamilton. They teach Ashtanga yoga in the Mysore style, as well as Yin, Hatha and meditation sessions. Sun Salute are family friendly, running a ‘Mums n Bubs’ class for mothers returning to yoga, with toys available for children, as well as a children’s session to encourage strength, flexibility and balance from a young age. The studio is a peaceful space with natural wood walls, fernery and a communal area with comfy sofas and shelves of books - all arranged with an air of quiet thoughtfulness.

With a belief in the holistic power of yoga for daily health, they encourage self-study, breath regulation, reading and ‘complete rest’, as regular elements of yoga practice, and also regularly host a number of visiting teachers, including the highly acclaimed Ashtanga teacher, Peter Sanson, based in Hawkes Bay.

To encourage holistic living, Sun Salute have started an organic grocer and juice bar called ‘Hearth’ which can be found in the shed next door. They sell yoga mats and products, and also have a consultation room where you can book an osteopath, a ‘Kakano’ midwife or a massage. Teaching beginners level classes right through to advanced, Sun Salute is a holistic health hub, with a warm environment and conscientious service. Check their website for session times.
