Ph. 03 365 6740
You don't need to fit in visits to the gym on top of yoga classes - practice Power Yoga at Apollo instead! Authentic Power Yoga at Apollo gives you 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.
Power Yoga as taught at Apollo was designed to help athletes achieve their best performances, but it's also a great practice for anyone who wants to combine the benefits of yoga with a strengthening, power-building work-out. Professional rugby players, cricketers, basketballers, multi-sport athletes, rowers, netballers and many others have benefitted from the Apollo Power Yoga practice.
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.
At Apollo you get authentic power vinyasa yoga taught by New Zealand's specialists. We take a deep interest in each of our students and will give you guidance and support as you learn and in your process of transformation. You will not be lost in the crowd but will be acknowledged and assisted. Get along to the studio, no booking necessary, and take our two-week introductory offer for just $25. Begin your transformation now.

No BUDOKON YOGA CLASS ON 25 JUNE
Hamish is teaching at a winter yoga retreat in Picton on Saturday 25 June and as a consequence there will be no Budokon® Yoga practice that day. All other classes will run as normal that weekend.

PRE-RECORDED CLASS FOR SALE - INSPIRE AND MOVE
If you like to practice the way we do at Apollo Power Yoga when you travel or like to have a recording at home for when you cannot make it into the studio we have the answer.
We have for sale a class called Inspire and Move in which Hamish and Margo run through a 60 minute all levels class of powerful yoga. The class is saved to a USB stick so you can play it back on your computer. It is a great companion to the travelling yogi.
The cost is just $40 and you can purchase it from reception at the studio.
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 Hereford Street, just outside of the studio, is limited to 1 hour between 9am and 5pm. But if you go to the part of Hereford Street just east of Manchester Street, there's no time limit and it's also free there.
Another good alternative is the off-street carparking at the corner of Manchester Street and Worcester Street, as that is only $1/hour. There are various other off-street carparking options avaiable - see the map on the Christchurch City Council website: https://www.ccc.govt.nz/transport/parking/find-a-car-park-park-smart/
