Our philosophy is based on ensuring a mindful, strengthening and holistic yoga practice. We encourage the experience of yoga to be a complete system, both on and off the mat.
At Good Vibes we honour our asana practice as moving meditation that creates a strong, clear, connected body and mind.
We focus on the integrity and fluidity of movement through unification with the breath. These movements are initiated by the inhale, allowing us to lift, expand and open, and with every exhalation we move deeper into the experience of being.
Our approach is grounded in the traditional lineages of yoga. We acknowledge all eight limbs of yoga: Yama (ethical disciplines), Niyama (self observation), Asana (postures), Pranayama (breath control), Pratyahara (sense withdrawal), Dhrana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (a blissful state of joy and peace).
Our vibe is laid-back, open, friendly and positive. Our goal is to foster an empowered, healthy and mindful community.
We welcome beginners, right through to the most experienced yogi.
Good Vibes offers classes across two unique yoga studios in Melbourne. Our Northcote studio opened in 2015 and our new Collingwood space launched in July this year.
Your health and the sustainability of our Earth are of the utmost importance and this is reflected in all areas of the studios.
In Northcote we keep our classes small, around 30 students maximum. Our white floor is hypo-allergenic cork, which is hygienic, environmentally sustainable, warm in winter, cool in summer, and best of all - soft on your joints.
Our Collingwood space offers two purpose built yoga studios and provides plenty of space to move and is flooded with fresh air and natural light.
Good Vibes is a climate-controlled environment of 23°C. We primarily use hydronic heating which does not cause dehydration. Hydronic heating is the healthiest choice for your body (and for the environment), as it allows heat to be built internally and safely.
Latex free Manduka mats are provided for complimentary use at the studios. These mats are closed cell, which means they are hygienic and won’t absorb sweat.
Other amenities include male and female changing facilities and showers. We provide all body products and towel hire is available.
This is the perfect environment to learn, discover and expand your heart, mind and body.
We care about your health and wellbeing. We believe wholeheartedly in the importance of a healthy interior space with a low environmental impact to practice in. For this reason we are committed to the following initiatives;
