With a clear vision in mind mother-daughter team, Susan and Clare, are excited to open their second yoga studio together in Balwyn, Melbourne.
With the aim of being something beautiful yet offering a point of difference from their first yoga studio, their second studio took a lot of time and careful planning. The outcome is a truly beautiful space, designed and styled by up-and-coming Melbourne Stylist Phoebe Bell from Sage x Clare. With tree-top views, an abundance of natural light, and a welcoming ambiance, Light Space Yoga studio has been designed to create a sanctuary for Melbourne yogis.
The motivation for this space came from Susan and Clare’s desire and belief that yoga should be a complete time out for your body and mind.
“We wanted to create a sanctuary where people could come and practice yoga, feel at home and stay for a herbal cuppa and a chat!”
Offering great yoga and changing peoples lives in the process. The space has a peaceful and welcoming feel, in which people are likely to attend more often leading to regular yoga practice.
Susan and Clare’s main focus through their yoga studios has been to offer yoga that is targeted towards modern lifestyles. They offer a Basics Program that runs on a four-week cycle, which is a great way for beginner students to learn about the key foundations of yoga practice, and for experienced yogis to sharpen their knowledge. By offering these programs, students become more comfortable on their mats, get a good grasp of the fundamental alignment principles for a whole lot of key poses, and develop their practice more quickly.
The Yin classes have proved to be the most popular at their ‘daughter’ studio. Yin is a slower paced, calming style of yoga which targets the connective tissues in the body.
“Everyone walks out of the room feeling like they’re floating!! We know how important a yin practice is, but to be honest, it’s popularity has surprised us and it really goes to show how much people want and need a bit more ’still time’ in their busy lives.”
The Melbourne yogi community is growing from strength to strength, and it is no surprise that the Balwyn community has been so welcoming to their beautiful new studio. Susan and Clare have been very humbled by the all the lovely feedback and support.
“We’ve been blown away with the support we’ve received, and for now, we’ll just be working on making sure we continue to offer great quality and life changing yoga to all those who have supported us by coming along to our classes!”
Light Space Yoga is now open and is a tranquil setting to enjoy your next yoga practice.
