Melbourne's favourite Pilates & Yoga studios

008 Breathe

Friendliness, convenience, expertise

We are renowned for our friendliness, our incredible profusion of classes, the expertise and professionalism of our instructors, free tea & apples and our spacious, beautiful and clean studios. Plus the convenience of booking, waitlisting and purchasing credits via our smartphone apps or website.

With 2 beautiful locations in the CBD providing over 150 classes every week, Breathe is Melbourne's favourite and most popular Yoga, Pilates and Functional Fitness studios.

Breathe is also Australia's premier Pilates education centre and the instructors who will be teaching you at Breathe have trained and certified over 500 professional Pilates instructors since 2007.

Our yoga team collectively represents over 80 years of yoga teaching experience, featuring several of Melbourne's most prominent yogis rooted in an eclectic mix of styles; you'll find traditional instruction in alignment, sequence and form as well as innovative approaches to applying yoga in the modern world.

You can savour a Pilates, yoga or functional fitness class at either of our Melbourne CBD studios. Or just sit around and enjoy the eclectic music mix, free fruit and ever-changing tea blends. Or coffee. We also have free coffee.

Plus we know how to fine-tune (or overhaul) your posture, muscle balance and movement patterns based on the latest research.

If Pilates or functional fitness is your thing, you probably won't notice the science behind Breathe classes, but you'll instantly notice the increased ease, comfort, strength and general pleasure you experience in your movement (also, we hope you won't mind looking amazing in a swimsuit).

If you're a yogi, over time you may observe subtle effects from your practice at Breathe. Your third eye will open, revealing the world fully for the illusion that it is,  transcending materialistic attachments until you are at one with the universal prana... Just joking. But as your practice develops you will become more mindful, flexible, strong and graceful. Ok, maybe we were only half joking. We love yoga.

Our reception folk are cool, quirky and ever-friendly. But not in an 'it's your job description to be friendly by reading from this script' kind of way. Rather more in an 'I'm just a genuinely friendly person and I naturally express that by taking extra care when blending the tea or helping you with your class booking' kind of way.
