How We Got Here!
Founded in September 2013 by a group of friends on Meetup that gathered weekly, Perth Yoga for Everybody emerged by its teachers being approachable, authentic and relatable to people learning about yoga for the first time.
The collective was (and remains) committed to the enjoyment of sharing yoga and meeting up.
As the group grew with the boom of yoga and event technology, we developed booking processes and policies to deliver consistent outdoor, group yoga classes all year round. Anyone in our community experiencing financial hardship can pay a donation amount of their choice and its been that way since the start.
To apply to pay by donation at any of our classes, click here.
We are a fully decentralised, incorporated entity (registered with ASIC), made up of yoga professionals and digital communication enthusiasts, sharing the extensive teaching experience enjoyed collectively in Perth.
"To improve the vitality and mobility of people in Australia, by delivering affordable and accessible Yoga events and services."
