Nothing says it’s time for 37-degree surprisingly difficult flexible body moves in a state-of-the-art warehouse studio like a twelve-degree partly-sunny day with a 60% chance of hail. This is why we’ve put together a list of all the places you can do hot yoga in Melbourne.

Just a few streets away is MOVE Yoga, which offers two weeks of unlimited yoga for $35, or alternatively three months for $379.
