Downward Dog in style: Humming Puppy, Melbourne

Downward Dog in style: Humming Puppy, Melbourne

Yoga is commonly known to strengthen, tone and elongate your body (evidenced by the long and limber Christy Turlington and Gisele Bundchen who are lifelong devotees). But, underneath all of those warriors, downward dogs and tree poses, you are also working to improve your digestion, balance your hormones and boost your circulation. That's why it's one of our favourite ways to work out - it makes your skin glow! 

So here's some high-end yogi inspiration from one of the most luxurious Yoga Studios in the world to get your juices going, even if it's just for twenty minutes of Savasana! Let's all flow and glow together!

Humming Puppy, Melbourne.

Located in Melbourne's stately suburb Prahran, this yoga studio combines the treatment philosophy of a day spa with the physical rejuvenation of a spiritual yoga practice. No expense was spared in the decadent stakes - every aspect designed with the intention of giving yogis the most wholesome, rewarding practice possible and the awareness of just how important a sensory experience is to fulfilling that. 

Designed by Architects (and yogi's) Louisa Macleod and Karen Abernethy with ARUP, the space is punctuated with simple white features and a warm enveloping palette of earthy deep browns and timbers. Soaring 10-metre high ceilings and engineered oak floorboards open up the interior, encouraging a sense of enlightenment and serenity. Silvertop Ash shiplap cladding gives a soft barn feel throughout the interior - adding to this sense of intimacy is the extra layers of soundproofing that all walls are clad in to completely cocoon members from the outside world as they focus on their inward practice.

 

But, the best part is it's namesake feature: a specially commissioned soundtrack that pulses via Sonos throughout the space. Soundwaves at 40hz - a frequency associated with ‘gamma’ brain wave activity and states of peak performance as well as a secondary layer of sound that resonates at 7.83hz, otherwise known as the Schumann Resonance, helps to centre yogis during practice. Together they create a distinctive hum that reverberates throughout the classes, grounding and uplifting the students at once.
