Whether you are new to yoga or you are totally immersed in your practice, when you walk through the doors of Jivamukti Yoga School’s downtown centre (841 Broadway, New York) it is impossible not to get caught up in the spirit and love that is Jivamukti Yoga.
The place is alive with people getting ready for class, chatting amongst friends, chilling out over vegan cookies and chai in the cafe or getting lost in the boutique shop and library.
As co-founder of Jivamukti Yoga, Sharon Gannon says “if you want to uplift your own life then you need to uplift the lives of others”. It is obvious to me that this yoga center embodies this statement.

Samadhi Yoga Studio is one of our favourite yoga studios in Sydney. It offer yoga classes in a range of styles suitable for all from beginners to advanced students. Whatever your style, you will find something to suit your needs at Samadhi.
Every time we go to Samadhi it feels like we never left. You see familar faces, the space is welcoming, and the classes are always fun. They offer the full spectrum from restorative yoga to dynamic vinyasa practice, and a wide range of workshops and events.
They also offer teacher training which has a good balance of theory and practical work. Highly recommended if you want to be teach yoga or just want to expand your yoga practice.

My favourite yoga studio is in Berkeley, California – The Yoga Room.
It’s a purpose- built space designed by an architect in a rough-hewn style with an exposed beam ceiling, natural light on two sides and a dance bar along one wall. Not overly large, there’s still room for perhaps twenty students, with an ambience of friendly welcome.
The building is only two stories high, with a cafe on the ground level that offers the requisite wholesome menu for yogis.
Best of all is the main teacher at the Berkeley Yoga Room, Donald Moyer, who is highly skilled, hugely experienced, and consummately gracious.
