Elevated above the hustle and bustle of Willis Street, you'll find an inner city sanctuary. Urban Yoga is a yoga studio devoted to creating a space for the individual to expand their mind and body. With its rustic warm interior housing recycled wood panels and large windows overlooking a vista of greenery, this third story studio provides the perfect platform for experiencing a practice that will enhance your health and wellbeing.

After 10 years working in the film and television industry (5 of which were spent as a Production Manager at Weta Workshop), Sarah Morris was ready to shift her focus and energy into her passion for yoga full time.

Taking the reins as Urban Yoga’s new director in January of 2015, Sarah, along with a small team of experienced teachers, offer a high standard of customised classes, specialised courses, workshops, events, pregnancy yoga and one-on-one private sessions. For those starting out, their beginner’s course is the best way to set a good foundation in a space where the teachers are friendly, relaxed and approachable; they take away the small amounts of anxiety sometimes associated with stepping out of your comfort zone into trying something new. The teachers guide you along every step of the way, with options offered to take your yoga practice to the next level - to which you decide.

The philosophy here is that yoga can be used as a tool to get to know yourself better, with a practice that meets you wherever you are, whether you’re there for stress relief, increased flexibility, strength or general wellbeing and empowerment. The teachers are sincere, passionate and accommodating, which just contributes to the community vibe Urban Yoga creates.
