  • Centred - through movement, breath work and meditation
  • Connected - to sacred essence, finding your place of tranquillity, bliss and ultimate wellbeing
  • Balanced - still the mind, honour your spirit, strengthen and expand the body and breath, and nourish your soul

The Ananda Sanctuary space

Ananda Sanctuary offers two intimate yoga spaces within a large, Victorian building. Practice is performed on a wooden floor, in a room that is very well ventilated.

The space offers bathrooms with shower facilities, as well as an outdoor courtyard space, tranquil koi conservatory, bookstore and shop.

All spaces diligently follow COVID safety protocols so that people can come inside, do their practice, and leave feeling fulfilled without concerns of health. The space is thoroughly disinfected, as well as any props used in the class.
