Vinny is actually short for Vinyasa! Although, we don’t mind if you think of Vinny like a person - like your newest yoga pal that has the inside scoop on all the Melbourne yoga happenings.
Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin are our main focuses. There is a very large number of studios that offer these yoga styles and as a result, require more research and time on the students’ end, in order to choose what’s right for them. So, this is where Vinny can be of help the most (at present moment). That said, we are not yoga “purists.” Vinyasa or not, whichever yoga tradition or lineage you follow, we respect that your practice is your own.
As we value quality over quantity, we look for specific criteria when selecting studios and teachers, but we welcome any new recommendations! We’d be happy to get to know and consider them. Please read our Get Featured page prior to submitting a nomination.
Melbourne not only has a large number of yoga studios, but a thriving, highly-engaged yoga community. We’re interested in diving deep on this local community before expanding into different cities across Australia or overseas. Patience, grasshopper!
We currently do not have the capability on Vinny to aggregate and display the classes of a specific teacher across all studios they teach at. Timetables are displayed through an individual studio’s booking system of choice and most of these systems unfortunately do not have the capability to view classes by teacher.
No. Yoga is a very personal, subjective experience both for the student and for the teacher. We intentionally have teachers and studios write their own profiles in their own words, so you get an authentic feel for their vibe. Vinny does not write these profiles; we simply want to present what’s on offer and let you make the decision for yourself from there. Your experience is your own.
That said, we do have a Comments section at the bottom of every studio, teacher, and event profile for Vinny users to leave their thoughts. As a community representative of Yoga, we ask that your comments are mindful and respectful, otherwise we reserve the right to remove them from our website.
As mentioned above, all teachers and studios supply us with their own content for their profiles - both written and visual. If teachers or studios need support with high-quality images, we are happy to provide our services! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love new friends and we’re open to collaborations and partnerships of all sorts. You can find more information on partnership opportunities here.
Vinny is a directory of carefully curated yoga teachers and studio owners. While we don’t list every single teacher or studio in Melbourne on our directory, we highly value recommendations from members of the yoga community! So, if you’d like to be listed, please contact us and provide student testimonials through our Get Featured page.
It is completely free to join Vinny, however you must be selected by our team. Again, more information on that can be found here.
No. We do not receive payment or commission for any teacher profile or studio profile that we list on Vinny’s directory.
We sure can. High-quality images make all the difference when it comes to your yoga business! Our photographers and designers can help with any of your content creation or content strategy needs. Please contact us at email@example.com.
