Flourish Yoga

Nestled away in Braddon, above the chaos of Canberra’s lively working district, is the quiet sanctuary of Flourish Yoga.

The petite studio is a perfect escape from the stress and demands of the workplace, as their motto is to focus on how you feel, not how perfect your downward dog is. Flourish Yoga also offers the opportunity to take a class within your workplace, sending one of their experienced instructors out to you.

The classes they offer range from beginner’s yoga, to meditation and mindfulness. However, for those looking for a slightly more physical challenge, the Vinyasa class is for you. Whilst still giving you the stress and tension relieving benefits, Vinyasa includes poses to build strength and improve flexibility.

Balanced Yoga

Fairly new to Canberra’s Yoga scene is Balanced Yoga. Located in Kingston, the business was started in 2015 by its passionate owner Sue McShane – a yoga teacher and personal trainer.

Balanced Yoga has seven different yoga classes available, ranging from beginner to advanced and catering to all ages. However, a spontaneous outdoor class on the water’s edge of Kingston’s foreshore is also not uncommon.

For those who wouldn’t consider themselves at all a ‘Yogi’, the beginner’s course that runs over eight weeks gives a slow introduction before moving onto their many other styles of yoga available.
