WELCOME TO APOLLO POWER YOGA

If you are new to Apollo Power Yoga, whether an experienced yoga practitioner or a brand new beginner, it can be daunting to step into a yoga studio you're not familiar with. You have nothing to be apprehensive about.  Our teachers will give you a cheerful welcome and our students will be friendly to you.  Just come along to a class.  You do not need to book or pay ahead of time.  There will be a place for you and we can take your payment at our reception desk.

Apollo Power Yoga has studio mats for you to hire, beautiful change rooms and showers, a water filter to fill your water bottle, towels for hire to either take into class with you if you so need or to clean up with afterwards, and a reception area to leave your belongings (we do ask that all personal items be left in the reception area, including cellular phones). You need not bring anything with you apart from yourself and comfortable clothes you can move in (shorts, leggings, sweat pants, t-shirt or tank).

‚ÄčMany beginners wonder which class to start with. The one that you can come to, is the short answer. There are many classes on our schedule; many different names and descriptions, but they all have teachers that are happy to see new faces and are comfortable and familiar with teaching new students. They are fully capable and eager to lead a class for all different levels; the beginner included!   We look forward to seeing you soon.

apollo's classes are your best opportunity for growth 

At Apollo, we offer fun classes in transformative power vinyasa yoga and restorative yoga.  Studies have shown hot power yoga to be the optimal form of yoga for burning calories yet the practice is low impact and tones and opens your entire body.  You are ready now!  Drop your doubts.  Come out of fear into courage.  Be the change you want to see for yourself! 

Power vinyasa and restorative yoga are perfect complements to each other, balancing, as they do, qualities of strength and mobility. These classes will immerse you in your physical and mental self, and let you realise your full potential. Do not come to class as you think you should be, come to class just as you are, and let that be the starting point for your growth in body, mind and spirit.

We invite you to join us to practice and experience the life-changing benefits of yoga. As a special introductory offer, your first fortnight of practice at Apollo comes for just $25.00! In that fortnight, you can practice as many times as you like.

Make a commitment to growth NOW, and join us as we step into a powerful new way of being.

where to park your car 

If you ride a bike to the studio, mat hire is free!  And we have bike racks on the side of our building for you.  the bike racks on the ground at the Victoria St end of the building are also available for your use.

But we know that some of you are coming from a distance and need to drive a car. There is plenty of on-street parking in Victoria St, and some of Salisbury St, just outside of the studio.  It has a 1 hour limit between 9am and 5pm, but that is not frequently enforced. 

If you're prepared to walk 3-5 minutes from a car-park to the studio, there is quite a bit of free on-street parking between the studio and Hagley Park, and in the "Playground Parking" in Hagley Park.

There are various other off-street car-parking options available - see the map on the Christchurch City Council website: https://www.ccc.govt.nz/transport/parking/find-a-car-park-park-smart/

If you have problems getting a car-park, tell the City Council.  The Council's strategy and planning has created the shortage of car-parks and they need to hear your feedback.
