Southern Yoga and Health Centre
Servicing areaMoorabbin, Victoria
Welcome to Southern Yoga and Health Centre
Yoga is a spiritual discipline containing a large number of different paths and techniques for attaining inner freedom, which is sometimes described as Nirvana, Samadhi and Liberation and has been practiced in India for over 5000 years. In Yoga, we see body and mind as inseparable parts of a whole.
Through our Hatha Yoga and Meditation classes we provide a space where you can simply be, where your own intuition and wisdom flow and your health and wellbeing returns.
The system of physical exercises called Hatha Yoga is not the whole of Yoga. It is considered a preliminary toning up of the body and therefore the mind in preparation for deeper spiritual practices.
The Centre is spacious and full of light, and very peaceful. All our classes are fully guided and beginners are welcome into all classes. We have mats, blankets and cushions you are welcome to use.
The Centre has ongoing classes, workshops with visiting teachers, film nights, dinner nights, hikes, cooking classes and yoga weekends. Everyone is welcome to join us.
Please scroll down for details of our Practitioners and other services.
