About Yoga for Life

Yoga for Life has been open since 2010, we are a couple with different interests, so both of us have contributed to the success of our now fully established yoga studio.

We opened our first studio in another suburb, we redecorated a huge rumpus room that was underneath the house, we put in floorboards ourselves to save some money and ended up with an awesome space to run our classes.

However, after the first year there, our landlord decided to increase the rent substantially and with our newly started business it was impossible to afford, so we had to move to another house.

In this new house that we still have, we converted the living area into the studio. We separated the house from the studio by building a wall with IKEA closets! And it has become the home of Yoga for Life since 2011.

Our studio has a very nice feeling to it, it is very cozy and inviting and we can have a maximum of 16 people, which allows us to pay attention to every single one of our students. We have now created a space of peace and harmony where our students feel comfortable and cared.

We have made many mistakes during our journey and we have now an established and fully operational business. We thought it was time to help other yogis around and share our knowledge so that other yoga teachers can finally let go of their 9 to 5s and be dedicated full time to our passion, yoga.
