BodyMindLife Surry Hills Studio

Yoga and Pilates

Play, explore, sweat and slow down in our beautiful, light-filled studios with some of the best yoga and Pilates teachers in Sydney.

Classes are designed for all levels. Flow in Vinyasa and reformer Pilates, learn the basics or slow down with Yin and our infrared saunas.

“I absolutely love this studio. Each time I step in the lift and can smell the essential oils wafting from Level 1, I noticeably relax. The Surry Hills studio is an amazing open, light and calming space and everyone I have spoken to is very friendly (I definitely prefer this venue over the Potts Point studio). Kat is my absolute favourite yoga instructor. She has an effortless way of making you feel comfortable and have the confidence to give everything/challenge yourself in class. I can’t wait until she is back from Bali so I can take her classes again. “

YOUR TEACHER - Noelle Connolly

Noelle Connolly has always been an athlete. A Philadelphia native, former Boston Terrier Field Hockey player and graduate of Boston University, she took her first yoga class in 2002, and fell in love with the practice – mentally, physically and spiritually. Noelle has a boundless curiosity for the practice, and is constantly driven to explore. She has a deep passion for inversions, harnessing the subtleties of the energetic body to defy gravity and move fluidly through space. Noelle’s classes are strong, creative and intelligent sequenced. Created to engage, refine and inspire, they are set to a background of meticulously curated music. She likes her students to leave class feeling informed, empowered and rejuvenated. A passionate and dedicated teacher, Noelle gives her all to her students. She feels honoured and blessed to take the knowledge learned from her teachers and mentors – including Maty Ezraty, Shiva Rea, Joan Hyman and Simon Park – and share it in an authentic way. “I hope to forever continue learning, about the asana and about myself. Yoga’s ability to ground and centre me, combined with an endless thirst for knowledge, pulls me back to the practice again and again.” Noelle Connolly
