Abbotsford Convent is a unique and beautiful place with a rare fusion of old and new.

It’s 11 historic buildings and gardens make it Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct and an Australian National Heritage site. Sitting on part of the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people, the precinct has 6.8 hectares of surrounding heritage gardens; offering a peaceful urban retreat. With the hum of nature and the silent flow of the Yarra River there is no sound of traffic or the world rushing by. It’s hard to believe you are just 4km from Melbourne’s CBD. The Convent is most similar to a countryside village. Filled with artists’ studios, creativity, cafes, galleries and markets, it is easily accessible by train, tram or bus.

The Practising Space

From intimate to grand, industrial to opulent, the Convent’s spaces are historically fascinating and bursting with character. Exploring and practicing yoga at the Convent will take place in a dedicated, open and owing multi-purpose room. With ornate, high ceilings, the steady stream of natural light and views over the green landscape, the setting instills calm, peace and the inner space to immerse yourself in the experience of yoga and community.


The surrounding suburbs of Abbotsford that will provide a commuting time to the Convent, using public transport, of approximately 30 minutes or less, are Collingwood, East Melbourne, Richmond and Kew.

Please contact the Course Convener for more information about budget and mid range options for your perusal and to notify your interest in co-student accommodation sharing.

Melbourne’s Intensive 9 Day training is a non-residential program. 

Cafes and easy dining options for your convenience are available on site at the Convent for breakfast, lunch and tea.
