Yoga Down Unda

When planning our trip to Australia, we made sure to research various places to be able to experience the yoga that the Aussies have to offer. With the lack of a car, cell phone or any sort of travel guide, those plans went right down the backward toilet the moment the adventure began. Luckily, we ended up in Sydney Harbor – a mecca for healthful people. After a morning run throughout the botanical gardens, we stumbled across a community pool with a Hatha yoga studio attached.  Yoga BC (BC standing for Boy Charlton) has two yoga rooms that overlook the Woolloomooloo Bay, which allow the natural heat from Sydney’s summer to flow throughout.

Entering the studio we were greeted with a big smile by Grant, the owner.  We then jumped into his Level Two Hatha class; a 90 minute session of asanas and meditation.  There really is something about flowing through different asanas and being lead by an Australian accent.  Grant was very calming and made the class feel extremely comfortable at any level.  The position of Yoga BC studio located right on the water provided beautiful scenic views, which allowed easy meditation and focused drishti.

Overall, Yoga BC was a great introduction to Australia’s yoga community.  Everyone was very congenial and approachable.  Grant was knowledgeable on all poses and flows and we enjoyed his jokes and different ways of saying the asanas.  I hope to get another chance to come back to Sydney and see the studio again, as we know that “There’s no place like ‘Om by the trees and seas of Yoga B.C.”
