SomaChi Yoga

Where contemparary meets traditional

SomaChi Yoga

Where contemparary meets traditional

Soma is the alive body and Chi is energy. SomaChi is a fluid and flowing style of yoga. It is about being in the movement rather than just merely doing it – ‘enjoyment in motion’. It is contemporary in nature, but holds respect to tradition and lineage.


We run certificate and advanced yoga teacher trainings, take people on sacred pilgrimages to India and the SomaChi Yoga style is featured in a number of yoga studios including the Carlton Yoga Collective.
