Westside Yoga was born out of a vision to return to and reconnect with what we understand to be the the original intentions of Yoga. Our ultimate aim is to cultivate a way of life that is conscious, mindful, connected and blissful. To achieve this we embrace not just the physical practice, but all aspects of this ancient tradition.

Our mantra is to explore wholeheartedly a traditional and wholistic yoga experience, both on and off the mat, and to reinvigorate these ancient teachings into our modern world.

Preparing for Your Class

When You Arrive:

  • No bookings required, arrive 10 - 15 minutes early
  • Plenty of parking

What to Bring:

  • Bring your own mat or feel free to use one of ours (complimentary)
  • Our studio is a comfortable 28 degrees, so you might like to bring a hand towel and some water

Behind the Studio: Mark Pheely

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

I found meditation at an early age but discovered asana through a surfing injury and fell in love with the practice. Yoga lit me up and over the years it kept calling me. I travelled to India and made the decision to give up a 20 year senior corporate role to pursue my dream of being a full-time yoga teacher. I believe if you can find your passion in life, then you should pursue it wholeheartedly and without compromise.

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

Yoga is a portal to a more conscious, connected and blissful life. Westside Yoga was born out of a vision to help people wholeheartedly explore yoga, on and off the mat.

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

“To be present in love always.”

What sort of experience are you looking to cultivate whenever someone steps foot into your studio?

At Westside Yoga we teach from the heart with a genuine desire that every experience you have with us is authentic, grounded, insightful, connected and balanced. Our teachers are completely committed to delivering you a full and rich experience that will enhance your life on and off the mat. Physical practice is integral to our school but it is only one limb of a multilayered experience that is yoga.

Our ultimate aim is to cultivate a way of life that is conscious, mindful, connected and blissful.

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

Our teachers all have their unique styles and are encouraged to teach in their own authentic way, including their choice of music.

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

In Seddon we are blessed with choice. Try Miss An'am for coffee and Eka Wholefoods for authentic house made chai.

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

Our community is passionate, committed and diverse.
