Welcome to the Dawn Collective Shala. We believe health is a recognition of balance, learning, pleasure & self-care - an appreciation of natural cycles & attuning ourselves to them. At the Dawn Collective Yoga Shala we offer traditional practices with a contemporary touch to relax & strengthen the body, calm the mind & untie the knots around our hearts.
Join us for open yoga classes, Mysore intensive weeks,
therapeutic & holistic massage treatments, privates as well as trainings & workshops with local and internationally renowned guest teachers who share their love for yoga, meditation,
