Somnus is a contemporary yoga & pilates studio offering professionalinstruction to those seeking balance of mind and body.


A place to nurture minds, bodies & spirits.

Somnus is a peaceful, contemporary space tucked away among the throng of the St. Kilda foreshore. A space for those who wish to reap the many benefits of yoga and pilates, without the cultural teachings commonly found in many yoga programs across Melbourne.

We focus on keeping class sizes small (under 20 students) to properly coach and instruct students on an individual level. This personal service has become our hallmark and in-turn our classes are often booked well in advance. Our instructors come from a range of backgrounds and disciplines, making Somnus a diverse collective of expertise.

Yoga can be enjoyed in many variations. With a yoga weekend there any many elements that can be explored.
