SoHo Yoga in Fortitude Valley is a tranquil sanctuary providing an oasis away from the hectic rhythm of city life immediately outside its doors. In case you were wondering, SoHo stands for 'Soul Home' (too cute, right?) and with its airy, light-filled vibes, this serene yoga studio definitely feels like somewhere your soul could kick off its shoes, put down its briefcase and get very comfortable.
SoHo’s Fortitude Valley location (its sister studio can be found in Newmarket) is perfect for Brisbane city dwellers and commuters to escape for a spot of zen before, during or after work. With its exposed timber beams and floors, dreamy artworks, sleek white walls and high ceilings, minimalistic greenery and modern Scandi-boho touches, the space is optimised to promote feelings of serenity and calmness as soon as you enter.
It’s the perfect place to switch off from all the crazy and look inwards for a bit while relaxing your body, mind and spirit.
SoHo Yoga has highly qualified, professional teachers with a wealth of experience, but the vibe is totally unpretentious and welcoming, with all levels of experience catered for from beginners to advanced practitioners. In addition to traditional yoga classes you’d expect—like Yin or Vinyasa Flow—this Brisbane yoga studio offers restorative yoga by candlelight, mat Pilates, and classes specifically aimed at addressing back pain. All classes at SoHo Yoga incorporate both relaxation time as well as the physical movements for a truly holistic yoga experience.
On a practical note, you never need to worry about forgetting your mat, where to park, or get changed, as they’ve sorted all that out for you (even your gold coin donation for mat hire goes to their current charity of choice—cute!). SoHo Yoga is all about de-stressing and chilling the f out—even before you arrive.
So whether you want to improve your posture, strengthen muscles, manage pain, de-stress, find inner peace, increase mobility, discover your highest self (or all of the above—who doesn’t love killing multiple birds with one stone?) don’t namaste in bed, put on those yoga pants for what they’re actually meant for (ie not Netflix binges on the couch) and try SoHo Yoga in Fortitude Valley.
