~About Yoga Kala~
“Art is of two types: one is the art of pleasure (bhoga kala) and the other of abiding divine ecstasy (yoga kala)”.
From The Art of Yoga.
The Murwillumbah Yoga studio is conveniently located in the centre of Main St. Murwillumbah. The studio is air conditioned for your comfort. The town is known for it’s wonderful Art Deco architecture and Yoga Kala is located in one of the towns most beautiful buildings. The Yoga Kala studio offers a tranquil and serene space in which to explore the wonderful art, philosophy and science that is Yoga.
The Yoga studio is fully equipped and open every day for classes. On occasion, when seminars are running with visiting experts, slight adjustments to timetable occur.

- General Yoga classes for those with some experience.
- More advanced Yoga classes for those with substantial experience.
- We also offer purely restorative Yoga classes based on the quietening of the mind and soothing of the nerves through breath awareness.
- One on one Yoga sessions are popular – these offer a focussed opportunity to go deeper into your individual microcosm.
- Gift vouchers are a wonderful way of giving the precious time of being with oneself to someone you care about.
- Julie has had the privilege of conducting Wedding Yoga which is a truly delightful way to enrich your special day at home or at wedding venue.
- Private classes for small/large groups. Contact Julie for further details ( see Contact Us page).

Yoga Kala often runs week-end Yoga workshops that offer a deeper look into all limbs of Yoga. The studio also hosts visiting teachers.
Yoga gives you a strong flexible body, a calm clear mind and the practice of Yoga builds foundations with the potential to engage and support you through life. Yoga connects us to the divine spark within, practise is a torch, once lit, will show us the way home.
“Yoga” in its Sanskrit root means “to unite” to “yoke together” mind, body and individual soul to the universal soul. The application of this vast accommodating practice builds enormous fortitude mentally, physically and emotionally. Yoga may be challenging at times and requires perseverance, practice and patience and it may demand certain qualities and focus, but the inherent beauty that lies within, is the development of those very qualities in the practitioner. The self inquiry involved opens the way to witnessing, transforming the way we think, speak and act. It is by nature a refinement of man.
The sage Patanjali is the author of the Yoga Sutras from which the teachings at Yoga Kala are based. The vastness of this work on the artistry, science & philosophy of Yoga is an overflowing well of guidelines to help us all live fully, and pass this earthly plane with some connection to divinity & grace.
Yoga is an ancient practice that in these modern times proves to be a magnificent support system to allow us to open to our full potential. Most of us come to our first Yoga class hoping to bring ease to a bound up body. The magic of Yoga is soon revealed as we innately are shown the links from the vehicle we live in to the mind that controls it, to the essence of soul that fuels all. It’s wonderfully expansive and in the space, comes the peace.
The teachers at Yoga Kala have immersed their lives on the path to progress in Yoga with experience of over 4 decades of practice, teacher training, study of the texts, and attend professional development with Senior Iyengar Yoga teachers both nationally & internationally.
The classes at Yoga Kala are imbibed with the unsurpassed quality of experience gained through time & maturity.
In loving memory of Guruji, B.K.S. Iyengar.

” Let the thing that you love, be what you do,
there are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the earth”.
“Yoga is that which brings you home to yourself”.
