Zen out with yoga in the South-West of WA

Published December 6, 2017 by Private Properties
Stretch and flex your way into a weekend dedicated to yoga.

Got too many things to do and can’t find enough downtime?

In today’s modern world managing stress and taking time out is incredibly important. It’s why yoga has become such a popular pastime. It helps you de-stress, unwind, and centre yourself.

Whether you’re a longtime lover of yoga or you’ve never tried it before, what could be more relaxing than a yoga retreat in WA’s beautiful South-West?

Known for its relaxed pace and hippie feel, the region has a host of yoga studios to choose from — with great teachers and loads of different yoga styles to try. And the great thing about doing yoga down South is that, after class, you can keep Zen-ing out in peace, or you can go and enjoy a relaxed lunch at a winery — the choice is yours!

Here are some of the great yoga studios and masters in the South-West who are available if a yoga getaway sounds like just what you need.

Dunsborough

The Zen Den Collective in Dunsborough is popular because of its central location and gorgeous loft studio. They also do yoga ropes (where you can hang suspended) and SUP yoga (stand-up paddleboarding) if you’re feeling adventurous.

Yoga South West is another great option, with private classes, so they’ll come to you if you and the girls fancy enjoying a class in your amazing down South abode.

Fancy a day of yoga, health and wellness activities? The South West Yoga Festival will be held for the first time on a beautiful property over looking Bunker Bay on Saturday 13 January 2018.

Margaret River

For a long time it was WA’s ‘home of the hippy’, so it’s no surprise that yoga studios are in abundance in Margaret River. We love Margaret River Yoga School, which has four different teachers who all bring their own style and passion to the classroom.

Where to stay:

There are plenty of wonderful accommodation options in Margaret River.

Busselton

Beautiful Busselton, right on the waterfront also has a plethora of yoga options including Busselton Yoga Centre, which has a great range of classes from beginner right up to more advanced levels.

You could also try Katie Yoga with popular teacher Katie Garnett, who has won the hearts of many down South by drawing influence from Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Iyengar, Restorative, Yin and Yoga Therapy for her teachings.

Albany

If you’re keen to practice in Albany, the Albany Yoga Room should be your first port of call. This peaceful studio will allow you to unwind and find your natural rhythm again. They even do classes for kids!

Dedicated to creating strong, healthy and agile bodies, the Pilates and Yoga Studio Albany is also a great option. Both strengthen the body and core, so if yoga isn’t your thing, maybe give Pilates a try? It can be a total game changer for those with bad backs.

Denmark

Denmark, on the south coast, has a long association with not only yoga but all kinds of spiritual and health retreats and experiences. So, it’s no surprise there is no shortage of yoga teachers, classes and venues in the town. You can find everything you need on the Denmark Yoga website.

If you’re looking for something special, check out the Holly Carter School of Movement, which not only does yoga but also Pilates and various forms of dance, or Radiant Being, which offers you yoga classes in your own home or holiday accommodation.
