Made for Melbourne

Melbourne is known for its thriving yoga community. But with hundreds of studios and teachers to choose from, it can be overwhelming finding the right practice for you.

Vinny (which is short for Vinyasa) is here to help you discover your kind of yoga. No matter where you are in Melbourne. We carefully present a selection of Melbourne’s favourite yoga teachers and studios all into one place. Think of us as your newest yoga friend, supporting you in expanding your practice.

Meet Andie: Vinny Creator

Believe it or not, my first yoga experience was in San Francisco back in 2009 when Bikram Yoga was popular. The extreme heat, the carpeted floor, the static poses — needless to say it wasn’t my kind of yoga. But fast-forward a couple of years, I went to my first Vinyasa class. Like many lovers of Vinyasa, the dynamic, fluid, free movement completely got me. It was like a warm welcome home and I’ve been practicing ever since.

That exact feeling is what sparked the idea for Vinny. I completely believe that there is a yoga practice for everyone, it’s just about discovering the kind of yoga that resonates with you. My hope is that Vinny plays a role in helping you find that ideal yoga practice, the one that makes you feel right at home. From the teachers and studios we feature, to the content we create, Vinny’s goal is to shift the common misconceptions about yoga and to continue making yoga accessible for people of different levels and backgrounds.

Prior to launching Vinny, I spent my days working in the San Francisco startup world as a recruiter, then shortly after moving to Melbourne in 2015, I made a 'career 180' into creative production and digital marketing. I completed my 200 hour YTT with Yoke Yoga and have taught at their South Melbourne location as well as other studios locally. While I'm not teaching in the studio-sense, I enjoy spreading yoga and serving the community through Vinny.

I love learning about the many facets of yoga just as much as I love practicing it, so if you’d like to connect further or collaborate, please do get in touch at andie@vinnyyoga.com.

Much love,
Andie Pineda
