The journey to becoming a Yoga Studio
The owners of Bodhi Yoga Studio, Chris and Allie, have traveled to India twice to become fully qualified Yoga Teachers, spending many hours learning the ancient practice to bring you an east meets west approach in there urban oasis in Milton.
They experienced an Ashram in Goa, India, giving them a taste for Ashram life. 2 years later, they returned to India, this time heading to Rishikesh, located in the foothills of the magnificent Himalayas. Rishikesh is rich in the history of yoga and known as the Yoga capital of the world.
Allie and Chris delved into ancient teachings from current masters. The knowledge being passed down through generations. The experience was truly mesmerizing and provided them with remarkable tools to teach authentic yoga in Australia.

As there second trip to India closed in, Chris and Allie started discussing the potential to share there love of yoga to the Brisbane community. Chris was already in the health and fitness world as a physical fitness trainer and Allie had longed to leave the corporate world. Chris had already been actively looking for a new space that was close enough to Paddington to continue to serve his loyal personal training studio clientele. But things hadn’t quite gone so smoothly prior to India.
On there return to Australia, the right place at the right time popped up. The space was absolutely perfect and it truly is amazing how things flow much easier in your life when you make the commitment to not only seek them, but make them a part of who you are.
This began the journey to 3 months of renovation. Chris and Allie really got there hands dirty and helped create the space that you now see and experience today. Together with a licensed builder and a handful of friends and family pitching in at different stages, Bodhi Yoga was born. We are excited to share our passion with you and recoemmend you experience Bodhi Yoga Studio today! We have a few different yoga classes on offer and have an easy to use online calendar to make your booking.
With an understanding that life in the West is vastly different to life in the East, Allie and Chris bring the perfect balance of traditional yoga with that Westernised touch. Each class helping to bring calm the mind and body and bring a touch of tranquility into your life.
