Welcome to the Yoga Space, YogaNelson

Our Yoga studio is located in the heart of Nelson City, New Zealand.
We have a spacious, warm and fully-equipped studio. We are dedicated and experienced practitioners and teachers  We have a timetable with classes through the week that are suitable for both beginners and more experienced practitioners. We teach a strong hatha yoga flow underpinned by our understanding of Ashtanga as detailed in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Ashtanga in this context is an Eight-Fold path providing instruction on how to live a purposeful, healthy, and joyful life, and lies at the heart of our approach to teaching yoga.
