Krama Yoga, based in the heart of Newtown, offers authentic teachings of yoga and combines them with a strong asana practice. Our classes are fun and informative, flowing through a sequence style of Vinyasa Krama. Not only do our classes include the physical practice of asana, but include mantra (chanting), meditation, pranayama and dharma talks regarding related yogic philosophy or history.
What is Vinyasa Krama?
Vinyasa Krama means succession or sequence, which we apply to our classes so you can practice in an intentional order with step-by-step progression. Classes are taught in a way that prepares your body and mind for more advanced asana, by starting with basic poses to warm up, and progressively building to more challenging variations.

Whether you’ve never tried yoga before, or are an advanced practitioner we have classes to suit all levels. If you’re just starting out, our Beginners Course or Krama I classes are perfect for building a foundation of knowledge.
