Free Yoga at the Sapphire Room

Downward dog that won't break the bank.

The cost of a yoga class in Auckland can be so eye-wateringly high that you need a shavasana (yoga speak for a rest) to recover. Luckily, a free class has been running right on the fringe of the city for three years. 

The Sapphire Room above Ponsonby Central has been running free Monday night community yoga since May 2015. Founder and class leader Yogi Brian de Greogory started the class to encourage more people to try yoga. In Brian's words, "Be curious, be playful and see where this journey will lead you."

Rumour has it that they will also be adding a kids class to the schedule soon, so watch this space for your budding baby yogis.

No bookings are required, just show up at the Sapphire Room (upstairs from the laneway in Ponsonby Central) at 7pm every Monday with your yoga mat and water bottle to try downward dog that won't break the bank.
