Ocean Beach Yoga is a tranquil oasis in the bustling seaside village of Sorrento on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Uniquely situated between the pristine bay and the wild ocean beach, the floor-to-ceiling glass doors of the loft-style studio, open out onto the rugged treetops of the national park, and the salty sea breeze carries with it the sound of waves crashing less than 400m away.
We believe that yoga is for everybody: a practice to be enjoyed by all ages, shapes, sizes and levels of ability. No body is good at yoga. No body is bad at yoga. We are all just here, in the moment, trying to discover a little about ourselves on this journey towards a better self.
Taking inspiration from our location, our class names reflect our love of the ocean: from Flow (dynamic Vinyasa) and Float (Slow Flow) to mellow Wade and Drift (Gentle Hatha and Yin), we offer a diverse schedule of daily classes to help you cultivate strength, suppleness and mindfulness. Our passionate teachers are here to guide and hold space for you in an open, inclusive and welcoming environment.
Maggie Carr - Founder
With a background in dance, Maggie was first introduced to yoga in the late 1990s. It began as something she did a couple of times a week at the local gym, but it was in 2000 that Maggie truly found yoga. After being involved in a sailing accident that saw her lose the fingers on her dominant left hand, Maggie embarked on a journey to heal hand, head and heart, and a daily yoga practice became an essential part of her life.
Maggie initially began teaching the Bikram Hot Yoga in 2005. She owned two busy studios in Melbourne for more than a decade before being drawn to the ocean and the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in 2016. Her travels have involved studying Vinyasa and Hatha yoga in India, plus additional training in Yin and Restorative Yoga and Meditation.
Maggie’s own practice has led to the discovery that the days she practices yoga are simply, better days.
Whoever you are, let Ocean Beach Yoga become your home, your home away from home, or the path that leads to the home within.
