Mirosuna Is the New South Melbourne Mindfulness Studio That's Serving G&Ts During Class

It's not your average yoga studio — classes include 'yin and tonic', sound meditation, sleep techniques and tea-fuelled mindfulness sessions.

South Melbourne is now home to a schmick new mindfulness and meditation studio, and it's offering cocktails alongside its yoga sessions.

Mirosuna isn't your average yoga space. Last year, Founder Sally Kellett spent time at Vietnam's Truc Lam Monastery, where she studied under Zen Buddhist nuns. Veering away from your standard hatha and vinyasa classes, Kellett hopes to bring mindfulness into your everyday life by doing things a little differently.

Classes include 'yin and tonic', a Friday-night session that focuses on releasing tight muscles and tension from the work week — and finishes off with a G&T during the wind down. You can expect more booze-related classes on the schedule in the coming months, since Mirosuna has its own liquor licence.

Other special classes include sound meditation (with Kellett playing crystal singing bowls), one focused on sleep techniques (geared toward people who have difficulty falling asleep) and a 'mindfulness tea journey' — which sees participants using tea as a tool for meditation and a source of calm. Mirosuna also offers massages and free online wellness tools.

The gorgeous studio was designed by Melbourne architect Melanie Beynon and is meant to exude a nurturing atmosphere. Think sustainably sourced cork floors, flowing curtains, soft lighting and custom-built acoustics.

Find Mirosuna at Level 1/18 Ross Street, South Melbourne. For the full schedule of classes and events, head to the studio's website.
