Are you feeling frustrated from persistent aches or injury?
Curious about why you’re struggling to progress your posture practice?

This may be just the thing for you moving forward. I have developed a structured program to provide you with detailed steps to deepen your understanding of how to safely approach the way that you practice not only Yoga Asana but expand your awareness of your body’s tendencies, so you can self-correct and adjust/re-align.

  • Learn in a safe, inclusive, beginner friendly setting.
  • No Fluff. Just simple, Clear Guidance.

Each session will look at a different area of the body starting from the ground up. We will cover technique through quick, super informative, easy to follow lectures, followed by demonstration and practice.
You will be surrounded and supported by a group who just like you seek not only the understanding but the shared community experience.

    Joey and the team at UpDog have created an environment which is the ideal retreat form busy inner city life. The classes are always thoughtfully curated with thought provoking intentions. The studio also has a great range of yoga styles. I personally enjoy the flowing vinyasa classes with an evening yin session as a treat.

    Joey runs a fantastic studio here. Each of the teachers offer their own unique experience which allows me to manage daily yoga sessions depending on how my body is feeling. The space itself is beautiful and the community is welcoming. Very much recommend anyone who’s new or experienced to give it a try.

    Joey and the community of UpDog Yoga is the most loving and caring I could find in Melbourne when I moved here 2.5 years ago. The studio is wonderful, bright and clean and has all you need when joining a new happy space. Honest and well experienced teachers guiding you through classes.

    Joey Myers is a modern day master. The environment he creates in a yoga class is truly magical. He is easily my favourite teacher in Australia. His wisdom and method of teaching has provided me such a clear insight to the practice for which I am forever grateful. An irreplaceable teacher.

    “Thank you for leading our group in the mentoring course. I found it really informative, inspiring and motivating. Just what I needed to find my passion for yoga again. To get re-motivated and re-dedicated to the practice. I am enjoying surrounding myself with like minded people and loving the community you have created. I feel one of the positives from the course was the numerous resources I have now to read, listen to and watch. Really looking forward to doing some study myself at home.”

    “I really enjoyed it, it was a great refresher and good to dive back into some of these subjects. I particularly enjoyed the self discovery work, discussing yoga philosophy again. I gained a lot from the hands on adjustments and key postures clinics as they were practical, group oriented and I left with some new skills to try out in class.”
