Dance of Life – Yoga and Healing
Find us on the premises of St Marks Church, 250 George Street, Fitzroy. The Dance of Life is a long established yoga school and healing centre in the heart of Fitzroy, just north of Melbourne’s CBD. We are committed to spiritual, emotional and physical health, happiness and peace of mind. Our philosophy is simply to open the mind and heart to the Infinite in each and everyone. Yoga and dance classes for all levels of experience from beginner to advanced are held 7 days/week. Click here for our timetable and more information about the teachers at Dance of Life. Practitioners from diverse backgrounds such as shiatsu, massage, arts therapy, kinesiology, dance movement therapy, body mind centering come together under one roof to work holistically towards your health.
The Dance of Life is different…
… and here’s why:
– our teachers are all very experienced, from a range of backgrounds and at the heart of their offerings lies the desire to help you grow and find your potential
– we are not your regular business model; instead, our teachers get to keep the money from students and pay rent to the studio. This way, we guarantee independence, deep engagement and ownership of their offerings
– our classes are longer than the average studio classes, with the majority of them running up to 2hrs. We are aware that not everyone has the time to indulge in this kind of immersive practice, so part of our inclusive nature is expressed by you always being welcome, no matter how late you run for class or how early you need to leave
– last, but not least, you will find a safe, caring and personal space at the Dance of Life. With a history of 40+ years as a yoga and dance studio, as well as teachers from all walks of life we are all about inclusion and openness. Our classes are small, versatile and suited to beginners and seasoned practitioners alike

Regular Yoga Workshops
Sunday, Sept 29th 12pm: Purposeful Practice for the Knees
On Sept 29th we will be looking into how to keep the knees safe and sound in the practice of asana.
We will learn about the anatomy of the lower limb and knees, thoughts to bear in mind for alignment and safe loading, how to deeply and meaningfully engage and also create space and awareness.
With this information, we begin to investigate physical engagement options and asanas that pose difficulties on the knee joints. Finally, we look into joint maintenance, practice preparation and strengthening exercises.
Location: Dance of Life, Fitzroy
