Us corporate slaves are always itching for some form of release after a hard day’s work, and for some of us, that comes in the form of yoga. The act of stretching out our stiffened muscles after a whole day of being glued to a chair can do wonders, but with everything in the CBD being expensive as heck, we tend to shy away from yoga classes nearby for fear of breaking the bank.
Fret not – there are always affordable alternatives lurking around, even in town. We’ve sussed out the best and cheapest yoga studios that you can easily hop to after work.
P.S. Some yoga studios also livestream virtual classes for those that are working from home!
