Please See Updated Timetable Below

For over fifteen years, 58 Bastings Street has been a home, a gathering place, and a space of refuge for so many.

Channa has generously opened up his home to the community with the service of teaching and an indescribable generosity. Now as the studio slowly prepares to move to its new home a few streets away, Channa is currently accessible through the profound healing yoga and meditation class he provides six days a week.

We will keep you updated regarding the move, which requires a lot of detailed planning, fundraising and effort. We are creating a truly exceptional and enduring new space. The move will allow the expansion of Channa’s teachings to the wider community, and deepen the connections between all of us. We are not there yet, and you can help us greatly in any way you are able, or by visiting our fundraising campaign to sign up for some great offers.

Our Studio

This is one of the more interesting yoga studios around. There is a strong base of dedicated members of all ages from the local community, but many travel from other neighbourhoods to take part in our regular classes, or to attend meditation and yoga workshop intensives. The warmly decorated studio offers a place to relax and focus on your yoga practice, unwinding to the trickle of the fountain, amongst Eastern statues and icons.

You can experience a candlelit night-time class to wind down for the evening, or an energy-generating morning class to boost your day. Take time in our spacious garden to admire the new growth and leave with a handful of homegrown veggies. You may even be able to taste one of his amazing home cooked meals, he prepares take home packs weekly so keep an eye out in the office for the fresh, healthy, gourmet packs. (He's actually a master of Sri Lankan cuisine, who has dedicated his life to teaching yoga).
