Life has been shaken up for pretty much everyone in the past few weeks. You might be working from home already, your weekly trip to the supermarket is all of a sudden inducing some serious anxiety and you’re definitely getting to know your housemate better than ever. There are ways to keep the balance in your life though, and Melbourne’s yoga and meditation cohort are helping you do just that by taking their classes online.
One Hot Yoga
One Hot Yoga & Pilates are running two daily classes online this week, with mat pilates and slow flow yoga running at 11am and 3pm. Sessions are free for the remainder up until Friday, and can be accessed through the One Hot Yoga website; for those wanting to continue on, the team will be offering weekly, unlimited access for $10.
Humming Puppy has several classes up online already, with plans to expand into a more comprehensive offering during the lockdown. Their take on yoga is unique in that it doesn’t prescribe to one specific style, but rather takes learnings from several areas of the practice. We recommend getting started with the ‘Mellow Hum’ class to get you in the zone. Get started with the free classes here.
Jessica Dewar Yoga
Jessica Dewar Yoga is taking the schedule online, and it’s looking stacked with Yin, Hatha and Vinyasa flow classes to suit anyone’s ability and schedule. The pay-what-you-feel model won’t be in effect online, but you can’t really go wrong with weekly subscriptions starting at $14.95. More details here.
It’d be inappropriate to throw around the term ‘business as usual’, as everyone’s had to make some concessions in some way, shape or form. Move Yoga isn’t slowing down, though, with around 6 live online classes per day. Take your pick from yin or hot yoga, and if it’s the latter, it may be worth giving your central heating a nudge for the true experience.
Happy Melon considers themselves a connection studio first and foremost, and that’s something needed more than ever right now. Whether you’re taking a yoga, mat pilates or dynamic fitness class, you can guarantee some form of meditation within the session to bring you into the present.
There are plenty of meditation classes available in the coming weeks, too. Find out what Co-Founder Simon Davey had to say about the importance of practising mindfulness in light of the current situation here.
The School Of Deep Feelings
A—Space, one of the leading meditation studios in Australia, has begun live-streaming sessions on their Instagram with several of your favourite teachers and thought-leaders including Dr Ezzie Spencer and A—Space founder Manoj Diaz. Log in for the next guided meditation this Saturday at 8am.
