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.

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 building "The Crossing" on Lichfield Street, across from the bus interchange. Currently, the first 2 hours parking in the building is free.
There are various other off-street carparking options available - see the map on the Christchurch City Council website: https://www.ccc.govt.nz/transport/parking/find-a-car-park-park-smart/
