Prana Lounge is a beautiful space and has a great following. It’s not just a yoga/meditation space; they’ve also got the Kinetic workout studio attached as well as a café and a shop. They’ve got great teachers, and in our minds, it is the best place to practice in terms of atmosphere. It has a much stronger international yoga practice vibe than other places. They’ve got a great choice of classes throughout the day, but be warned, this place can get noisy (due to the café). Staff and schedules frequently change too. That said, we love its accessibility and the wide range of workshop courses they offer. They’ve also got treatment rooms attached, offering a wide range of mind, body and soul treatments. It’s also a brilliant space to meet new people.

The Om Space is one of the original yoga studios with a huge following. They have a big mirror which is useful for seeing your alignment. It’s not the prettiest or most Zen space, plus there is a gym on top, so sometimes you find yourself listening to feet stomping above you rather than finding your inner peace. However, Serena and her team are excellent and incredibly knowledgeable teachers who will realise your full potential. They offer prenatal classes and kids’ classes with properly certified teachers. Be sure to check their schedule online, it gives you a much better understanding of things.
They offer barre and pilates classes. They have recently expanded and now have group reformer classes. The space is beautiful, light and airy; they really have made such an effort to create the right atmosphere for you to practice in. They also offer 1:1 private training and rehab. Nare is a very caring and professional teacher and she is building up an amazing following with the addition of more great teachers.
