Practice authentic Power Yoga at Apollo Power Yoga to gain the functional strength that you expect from weight-training at a gym, the heart-health benefits you expect from cardio work, and the full mobility and calm, focussed mind that only yoga delivers.

From professional athletes to people who have never enjoyed physical exercise before, Apollo Power Yoga offers a practice for everyone who is interested in growth in strength, mobility and mental calm.

Men, women and children of all ages, shapes and fitness levels enjoy our practice.  We teach from teenagers to seniors, professional sports people and athletes to first timers who have never liked exercise in their lives.  See our Testimonials and join in a fantastic community of yoga practitioners.  With modifications, our classes may even be practiced safely by pregnant women and new mums

Our last classes at 107 Hereford Street, our home for our last four years were on Thursday, 13 July.  From and including Friday 14 July we are running classes from 46 Salisbury, Christchurch (click here to see the location on Google Maps).

It was a long process to find new premises.  We appreciate that we will be more remote from some of our students but we will be more accessible for others. What you know is that our classes are unsurpassed not only in Christchurch but you would be hard-pressed to receive a better practice anywehere in the world than what you receive at Apollo Power Yoga.

In our new premises we can boast a larger practice room with beautiful natural light, nicely appointed changing rooms with more showers, more bench space, more hooks, more mirrors - more everything, and more readily accessible parking.  There are one-hour parks on Victoria St and parts of Salisbury St and, after hours, unlimited free parking on parts of Salisbury St.

Our timetable remains the same.  We're looking forward to seeing you in for practice.


We have for sale a recorded class, taught by Hamish and performed by a wonderful group of yogis from Apollo Power Yoga.  This class comes on a 32GB USB stick and is compatible with the device of your choice.  Drop in at the studio to pick up your copy or phone Hamish (021 0551884) to order one.  It is great for when you are travelling or to have at home for motivation and guidance in your home practice or for those who live remotely and do not have ready access to the teaching at Apollo Power Yoga.  Just $45! 



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 

On street parking in Victoria St and some of Salisbury St, just outside of the studio, is limited to 1 hour between 9am and 5pm. Some street parking on Salisbury St is unlimited in duration and is free.  If attending early morning classes or evening classes these parks will be very helpful to you.  

Be prepared to walk 3-5 minutes from a car-park to the studio.  There are various other off-street car-parking options available - see the map on the Christchurch City Council website:

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