Yoga Studios in the Heart of Collingwood
Where you feel you are practicing amongst friends. SomaChi Collingwood is a stunning two storey warehouse studio – aka “the hidden jewel” – just off vibrant Smith street. We provide an opportunity to do something truly and wholly good for yourself. Turn off your phone, step away from your desk and spend time focusing on your own body and mind.
We offer Vinyasa, Hour Flow, Align Flow, Inner peace and restore, Ashtanga Led, as well as our signature style SomaChi. SomaChi is a vibrant, active and uplifting practice that combines traditional yoga poses with dynamic, energetic transitions which combines yoga and martial arts, emphasising flowing movements. Our yoga courses inspire the individual who loves to move, often to the rhythm of music, and at times alongside live performances.
SomaChi Collingwood uses hydronic heating during the cooler months to heat our yoga studios to 24C. Hydronic heating is the healthiest heating. This system creates a very warm comfortable environment, while still allowing the student to build heat in their body, enabling them to reap the maximum benefits of yoga.
Truly transformative yoga lessons focusing on the needs of each individual student
At our Collingwood yoga studios, we believe everyone can benefit from the rejuvenating and life-giving experience that our mode of practice provides. Walking in the door, you are greeted by a statue of female bodhisattva Green Tara, the mother of liberation in Buddhism. You are also greeted by smiling teachers, committed yogis and a lively upbeat vibe which is also intuitive to the ebb and flow of energy. Don’t just join a studio, join a community. At SomaChi, we try to foster a lively, inclusive, encouraging atmosphere that welcomes people of all ages, abilities and experience levels.
At our SomaChi and Vinyasa yoga classes, you’ll be led by qualified and passionate instructors who can gently guide you towards a better form of practice. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re looking for a skilled school to help you start on the path to teaching, we’re there for you.

Important information on the Physical Effects of Touch
Researchers at the University Of Miami Touch Research Institute found that touch with moderate pressure stimulates a cranial nerve that slows heart rate and lowers blood pressure. This produces a state that is relaxed but more attentive. Touch also reduces stress hormones and may enhance immune function.
I knew as soon as I walked through the doors of Somachi that I had found the studio for me. It’s warm embrace was palpable. My instincts were confirmed after a few classes as each and every teacher there took us through dynamic flows and encouraged us to work, play and have a laugh. What became apparent very soon after becoming a member was that I hadn’t only joined a yoga studio, I’d also become part of a community. It has been over six months and I am so glad that I have found this little community in Collingwood. I never regret a class; no matter how hard it is to find the motivation to get there sometimes (especially in the colder months!), I always walk out with a smile.
I have been fortunate to be practicing SomaChi yoga for many years. I first met Lianne when she came to my office to teach yoga. I quickly found her studio in Prahran and started attending her SomaChi classes, from there to South Yarra to Collingwood I have followed SomaChi. The classes are beautifully flowing and elegant with a gentle manner. All of the teachers are warm and friendly and there is great energy in each class. Such a joy to practice here.
I thoroughly enjoy my time practicing yoga at SomaChi! The teachers are great. In particular I enjoy Emily’s classes the most, she is very meticulous and helped develop my technique and for that I am very grateful. Not only is their price extremely competitive but the classes are also of high quality. Thanks guys!!
