Frequently Asked Questions

What style of yoga do you teach?

We teach traditional yoga that combines movement and breath. Our teachers draw from many traditions of yoga and each class is a little different! Some days your physical yoga practice will become a moving meditation. Other days join us to cultivate strength, stretch and learn new breathing and relaxation techniques. All classes are safe, fun and beginner friendly. The perfect start into your summer days.

What if I am a beginner?

We welcome people of all ages and stages to our classes. Our instructors love introducing beginners to yoga on the beach. It’s a wonderful place to get a taste of yoga. Just let your teacher know that you are new to yoga (and tell them about any injuries) and they will keep a special eye on you.

Do I need to bring a yoga mat?

It’s up to you! If you prefer practicing on your own mat, please bring it along. We generally suggest to bring a beach towel to keep things simple. Some venues also have mats for hire.

Can I share my 10-class or season pass with my family and friends?

Our 10 class passes can be shared amongst family and friends. Purchasing a pass for the whole family, or a group of friends is a great way to save money, and do a fun activity together that promotes health and wellbeing for everybody.

Our season passes are non-transferable. It’s yours for the season.

Can I use my pass across different venues?

Yes! Many students love exploring our different Beach Yoga Venues. You can use your pass for all our four venues. What a great way to see and experience our stunning beaches.

Can I pay cash for a class, weekend pass, ten-class pass or season pass?

You can pay cash for all classes and passes at each venue. Please note that we have a special discounted season pass, which is only on offer online before the start of the season.

What it if rains?

Beach Yoga runs in most weather conditions. On days with rain predicted, we will be at the venues to see the conditions first hand. Weather can move through quickly and even the weather radar at times can prove to be in error. We find some of the best days when being exposed to the elements, or practising for a short while in drizzle. Just make sure to wear some layers. If we get rained out during class, you will receive a free pass to another class. (30 mins is considered a full class if this is the case).

I have purchased a season pass, ten-class pass, or weekend pass. Do I need to book into individual sessions?

You don't need to book into any sessions with a season pass, ten class pass or weekend pass. Just turn up whenever you like. You can use the pass at all our locations - Mornington, Dromana, Mc Crae and Phillip Island.
