OUR STORY

 

Melbourne Loves Yoga Awards 2016:

Top 10 MelburneYoga Studio of the Year

Top 10 Melbourne Yoga Teacher of the Year (Andi Kiprillis)

Our vision:

To inspire and enrich your life.

 

Our mission:

To become Melbourne’s premier Yoga studios though a vibrant and committed team who inspire, nurture and lead by example to enhance our patrons’ physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

 

Our director and our story:

Andi founded Yoga Plus in 2010. At the time her daughter was only one, and the yoga class was merely a hobby and a distraction from her busy working life as a pharmacist. It wasn’t long before the small community classes grew in size and Yoga Plus opened its first studio in Berwick., Melbourne.

 

At the time Andi was still juggling part-time work, motherhood, family life and running a business. Needless to say, something had to give, so she decided to give up her profession to give 100% of herself to the work that she is truly passionate about. She is now proud to call herself a full-time yogi. The belief that life is too short to do things that don’t honour our values and beliefs has prompted her to make a career change and she hasn’t looked back.

 

The yoga journey began at a time when struggles with infertility were demanding that Andi take a good look at her physical and emotional wellbeing, to which yoga proved to be the answer. “Yoga is a practice that allows individuals to find acceptance. It is a practice that, if done consistently, shifts our outlook on life and problems that once seemed overwhelming are put into perspective.”

 

“To many, yoga may seem like just a series of postures that stretch and strengthen your body. It certainly does that, but so much more…over time people find their outlook on life changes and they become more positive – this is the essence of yoga”, says Andi.

 

Having seen first hand how yoga can be a powerful tool in enjoying a healthy pregnancy and an empowered birth, Andi feels passionate about yoga in the pre and post natal period. Yoga Plus is now Melbourne’s biggest prenatal yoga school.

 

If considering yoga, Andi suggests choosing your studio carefully, and within the studio a class that suits your needs. Yoga is for everybody, and the first step is often the hardest – showing up.

 

Yoga Plus and its team of teachers work cohesively to ensure each client feels welcome and is given the space and freedom to practice in a way that honours their body. “Seeing the smiles on our students’ faces and hearing about the way yoga has improved their lives makes our work extremely satisfying.”

 

Yoga Plus clients vary from infants to the elderly and every age in between. City of Casey’s Award Winning studio, Yoga Plus has been instrumental in introducing quality yoga to Melbourne’s Outer South East.

Our Community

The friendly faces of not just the crew but your fellow yogis are what make our yoga studio unique. We pride ourselves on the strong sense of community, in and out of the studio.  We like to go out for catch-ups, we like to get to know you. We also like to travel. In 2015 we visited India, the home of Yoga. In 2016 we are hosting our second international yoga retreat, this time in Bali.

We also have a Facebook group we have created, just for those who attend the studio - it's a little more informal than our official page, and we welcome all our yogis to join in the conversation.

Our teaching staff are carefully selected to reflect our values and to make your experience with us something you want to rave about! 

"Although I am fairly new to yoga I have always loved it and practised intermittently over the years, however I have found it difficult to find a reasonably priced, well rounded yoga studio in the South Eastern suburbs. Yoga Plus is an amazing studio, with extremely helpful and friendly staff. They cater for all experience levels and let you go at your own pace and level during classes.

"I am 2 years old to yoga and am totally addicted.
I've tried a few studios in Berwick and this is my review of YOGA PLUS
Yoga plus....the name says it all.
YOGA PLUS.
PLUS I say.... Being starting with......
Andi, the proprietor is so friendly, competent, progressive, innovative and PLUS approachable.
Andi also organises retreats and coffee mornings.
The studio is excellent
The teachers are the best.
They make you feel so comfortable and welcome.
They are so dedicated and provide continual variety of yoga practices as well as the use of props.
They must do a lot of behind the scenes work and research to keep coming up with such a variety of classes that target so many parts of the body as well as fun to do.
The variety of classes are awesome and the flexibility of times to attend is a real.....shall I say PLUS.
The equipment you use in the studio is top quality and continually refreshed.
PLUS, attending a Yoga Plus session adds a real Plus to your life."
