If you're thinking of travelling to Australia, Perth is a great city to visit on the West Coast. Picturesque beaches, beautiful river - perfect if you love water sports, fresh air and just a general great relaxed atmosphere that you'll find in Australia in general.
I’m a firm believer in always being a student of Yoga. That is why, even as a Yoga teacher, I always attend regular Yoga classes — I don’t want to stop seeing the world from a beginner’s perspective.
Before I left Perth, Western Australia on these most recent round–the–world travels, I had a number of my Yoga students ask me what other Yoga classes/studios I’d recommend to them.
So, here are the Perth Yoga Studios that I attend and recommend as a Yoga student:
151 South Street, Beaconsfield
Yoga Asana Style: Mainly Hatha Yoga
Beacon Yoga Centre is a Yoga Ashram – it’s high up on a hill as you enter Fremantle on South Street.
I’ve only attended the Tuesday evening class but I like the relaxed atmosphere and the studio is large but still cozy. The Yoga classes are busy but there’s plenty of room and I never felt squished in. They have a good range of Yoga Props for use.
Door 4, E-Shed, Victoria Quay, Fremantle
Yoga Asana Style: Hatha Yoga
I’ve been attending Yoga classes at Fremantle Yoga Centre a lot over the years.
The studio is upstairs, above the E-shed Markets. It’s a light and airy space. It does get busy but there’s plenty of space.
They run a wide range of Yoga classes and a great selection of Yoga props that the Yoga Teachers make good use of them.
220 Carr Place, Leederville
Yoga Asana Style: Ashtanga Yoga
8 Limbs in Leederville teaches Ashtanga Yoga. Guju Pattabhi Jois founded this style of Yoga Asana that it has set sequences of asanas (poses).
They run two 6 week beginners courses (Levels 1 & 2) and regular Ashtanga classes as well as Mysore style (guided) classes and Pre and Post Natal Yoga classes.
The studio is fairly small and I found that it was busy for the morning classes where they had both Mysore and beginners courses running in conjunction.
I’ve attended both of 8 Limbs’ 6 week courses and found that they gave a good foundation to Yoga in general and to Ashtanga Yoga.
