Yoga's earliest beginnings come from the act of giving. As Sydney's first donation-based yoga studio, Barefoot Yoga continues that practice through openness, honesty and trust. Through yoga we nurture these values, improving strength, flexibility and peace of mind. We welcome you to join us and discover all the benefits yoga can bring.
All classes are run on a donation basis
We don't employ teachers directly. Instead we've invited some of Sydney's best yoga teachers from all styles to host classes in our space. That means you can enjoy a diversity of classes and teaching styles in one place.
"Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in kind. When we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success" Deepak Chopra.
Suggested Donation $10 - $20
Yoga has exploded in popularity over recent years and is often priced beyond many peoples reach. Inspired by Bryan Kest's Power Yoga in Los Angeles, we run our studio on a donation basis. While we are conscious we have a business to run, the emphasis is to offer yoga as a service, first and foremost.
Our mission is to create a community environment where everyone feels welcome and has permission to give according to their ability. By operating a donation-based studio, we are cultivating a culture of abundance and gratitude.
"If we offer yoga honestly and with kindness without any expectations - this will have a transformational effect on peoples' lives."
- Crawf Weir, Founder Barefoot Yoga
Lack of pretense: always a welcoming reception, no mirrors, wear your oldest running shorts or your newest lululemon get-up = equal cred in the Barefoot sphere!!, willingness of teachers to engage with you after class, feeling like an individual person (rather than a digit or keytag entity!)
