The Yoga Specialists

The Carlton Yoga Collective is a passionate collective of yoga teachers overseen by Lianne Metcalf. 

Our small home studio strays from the crowded mainstream in that we focus on small classes (max ten people) to provide individualised assistance and adjustments to participants

Regardless of whether you are new to yoga or experienced, our classes will provide attention and support to further your yoga.

What yoga do we do?

SomaChi is a dynamic flow yoga created from Vinyasa flow, Somatic movement and Tai-Chi.

The transitions concentrate on fluid movements that not only create enjoyment in motion but also support the joints and muscles.

When experience matters

Lianne has been teaching for more than 25 years and training people to become yoga teachers for the last 15 years. She also has a 30-year background in Somatic psychotherapy that aided the development of the studio’s principle style, SomaChi. She brings these years of expertise to the yoga class.
