Flametree Yoga Studio

“Flametree Yoga Studio operates on Larrakia country. We acknowledge the Larrakia people as the Traditional Owners of this country on which we practice. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.”

Flametree Yoga Studio teaches yoga in Darwin CBD,and Woolner.

Flametree studio was established in 2002 by Christine (Chris) Lalor and over the years has grown into a vibrant yoga centre offering a wide variety of classes to cater to a diverse range of people. We offer a 7 day a week timetable and a teacher training programme. The style of yoga taught at Flametree is called Iyengar yoga. It is style renowned for the fact that it can be practised by both men and women – at any age, any body shape and any level of flexibility.

All the teachers at the studio are passionately committed to teaching yoga and believe in the power of yoga to transform us wherever we are in our lives. All our teachers are long term practitioners, qualified through many years of specialist training to teach Iyengar yoga. We limit the numbers in all the Beginner courses to ensure individual needs are met. The studio offers a friendly learning environment where students can enter as a complete beginner and progress safely through to being an experienced student with an established home practice. We place great importance in teaching students how to adapt their yoga practice to the changing seasons in the ‘Top End’ so it helps them nourish and energise their bodies, quieten and soothe their minds and restore balance.

Testimonials from our students

Speak up ... don't give up

I have a mental illness known as major depression and have long been aware that exercise is touted as an effective antidote, but I was never able to stick at anything, until I found yoga. I do not know why yoga appeals so much. Perhaps it is because I can be in my own space in a room full of people and I have so many things on which to concentrate that I have no time for depressing thoughts.

Starting Iyengar at Flametree

My Friend Gary came out from Sth Korea to work in Darwin January‐ June 2017.

How yoga taught me patience

I had always been the type of person going from one activity to the next. I thought that a good run, or game of sport meant that I had worked out. And really, what did it matter if I couldn’t touch my toes? Or, even after trying to stretch, my hamstrings were still really tight? But seriously, no matter how damn hard I tried I couldn’t bend forward without feeling my concrete hamstrings and that was that.
