Behind the Studio:

Tell us a little bit about how your yoga journey began.

We're Physiotherapists with a desire to offer the best quality of yoga in an intimate and boutique setting. We want to give all people the opportunity to learn and be guided through an intimate, safe and tailored yoga practice.

This collaboration is the SUM of the four of us, it is the SUM of parts that enable total wellness, it is the SUM of its people and community; it will provide SUM physiotherapy, SUM Myotherapy, SUM Podiatry, SUM Pilates, SUM Yoga, SUM coffee, SUM nutritious food, SUM meditation, SUM other wellness services.

What inspired you to take the leap and open up your own studio?

We saw a large gap between Western medicine and Eastern practices, both of which we believe have their place and should be combined to offer a wholistic and comprehensive offering. We wanted to bridge that gap and combine our varied passions for wholistic wellness.

We opened Sum of Us Studio to be a total wellness studio where all people can find their pathway to health and wellness in an environment that combines modern science and ancient practices. We opened the studio we always wanted to go to.

Speaking of inspiration, what words do you live by? Name your personal or professional motto.

We all have the capacity to live our best life at every stage of our life. The path can be varied, changing and challenging, and the individual variable and different, but with the right attitude and guidance (internal or external) we can all optimise our quality of life, health and happiness.

What sort of experience are you looking to cultivate when someone steps foot inside your yoga studio?

All people will feel immediately welcomed, warm and comfortable. Our studio feels luxurious yet homely. The strong and warm sense of community and genuine care is evident, and the level of professionalism and expertise is outstanding.

Our studio feels luxurious yet homely.

Describe the kind of music your teachers play during class. What's the music vibe like?

Our teachers match their music to the theme of the class. Expect ambient, calming tunes, classic and modern.

While we're in the neighbourhood, what local spots should we check out before or after class?

We have it all in one spot at Sum of Us Studio. You'll enter via our very own cafe which serves smooth Melbourne coffee, chai, tea, turmeric lattes, amongst the smoothies and dietitian designed menu of eat in or grab and go food!

While you are here you can book a massage, see a physiotherapist, myotherapist, dietitian, health coach, podiatrist, do Meditation, Pilates, Barre or HIIT class.

Pick up your gourmet supplies around the corner in the Hawksburn Village, or head down High St Armadale for the best fashion in Melbourne. Facial at James Vivian Dermal Therapies.

If you could collaborate with someone on a dream project, who would it be and why?

The dream is to transform as many people as possible. To help more people live healthier and happier lives. To give more people, more of the community, the opportunities and desire to invest in their health.

We believe strongly in what we can do, what we know, and how we can help, we just need to collaborate with someone to bring us onto a bigger national or international platform, someone real and down to earth. Perhaps Margot Robbie or Meghan Markle!

Lastly, what are you most proud of when it comes to your studio and/or your community?

Our staff. Each and every one of them expresses and resonates with our dream and our values. We are lucky and privileged to have found people who are the best at what they do and professional, yet are genuinely warm, friendly, kind and genuine.
