Welcome to Humming Puppy
A yoga experience evolved from traditional practices in a stunning space that resonates with a perfect hum. More than just the physical practice of yoga, your experience begins the moment you sign up and book your mat online (for our 'In Studio' students). Start your practice, leave the outside world behind and immerse yourself in good vibes.
We have yoga studios located in Melbourne, Sydney & New York and we now also offer classes online via our On-Demand Live Streaming platform. This allows you to practice with us from anywhere in the world and from the comfort of your own sacred space.
The same studio offerings, now online
Mellow Hum is a super chilled class that include deep openings and gentle movement. Postures are typically seated or laying down and held for 3-5 minutes at a time. These are slow paced classes that allow space and time to cultivate awareness and reflection.
A perfect place for any student wanting to create a calm meditative state of mind.
These classes include moderate paced flows to entry-level strength content. These classes typically offer more modifications and detailed instructions on fundamental postures. Students can expect to feel comfortably challenged. We welcome beginners to more seasoned practitioners who prefer a steady paced practise.
If it’s your first time practising yoga, we suggest you try our Foundation Hum classes first.
Dynamic Hum includes flow and strength content designed to challenge your current limitations physically and mentally. These classes tend to focus on building into more challenging asana. You will build strength and body awareness by exploring more complex transitions and by having a play into inversions and arm balances.
These classes are catered to Intermediate-Advanced practitioners.
What kind of yoga is it?
While we don’t prescribe to a specific style of yoga, we base our teachings on the principles of breath-pranayama, movement-asana and awareness-meditation. These principles are the foundation of our classes in which we welcome beginners through to the most experienced yogis. If practising with us in one of our physical studios, its important to note that our classes are ‘warm’ and conducted in a room typically heated to 27 degrees.
Our teachers are always mindfully present for their students with the intention to create a space where you will always feel comfortable.
New to yoga?
Our Foundation Hum classes are the perfect place for beginners to start their journey or for any student who wants to review the foundations of their practice. Classes will focus on guiding you through key asana (postures), alignment and pranayama (breath techniques) to have you feeling empowered to join our Unified Hum classes.
Dive Deeper Online
Yoga is a holistic practise and as such there are so many beautiful aspects to the practise that cannot possibly be shared in the space of a single class. Exclusively to online, we are able to offer more specialised yogic content we know you'll love.
DEEPEN YOUR HUM
These shorter classes aim to provide you with an opportunity to dive a little deeper into the various elements of yoga and yoga philosophy. Each class will have a specific focus and provide you with a deeper understanding of how to incorporate the theme into your practice or your life.
A guided meditation and mindfulness practise to cultivate stillness, mental clarity and peace. Each class will incorporate one meditation or mindfulness technique to increase concentration, self-awareness and reflection.
Combined with the resonance of “the hum” which aids in supporting a meditative state of being, our meditation classes are designed to bring you back to the inner stillness that resides within you.
Trying to nail that pose? Dive a little deeper into the energetics and physical alignments of a particular pose in Asana Lab. Each Lab will focus on a different pose and it will allow you to explore the specific pose in a more focused manner.
Rest in a deep state of yogic sleep, Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation technique whereby your consciousness is guided to the place between waking and sleeping. It is a powerful practise that helps to reduce stress and anxiety and is one of our favourite practises to achieve ultimate relaxation.
Yoga for Pregnancy
Special classes perfectly designed for mamas-to-be or new mamas who are looking for a safe and grounding practice.
THE HUM IN HUMMING PUPPY
When taking a class at Humming Puppy, one of the first things you will notice is that the room quite literally 'hums'... and this is by no means an accident! Our yoga space or ‘shala’, engineered by ARUP (one of the worlds leading acoustic engineers), is injected with a combination of frequencies to enhance and deepen your experience. More specifically we use a combination of 7.83hz and 40hz. Being submersed in these frequencies helps you to naturally produce matching frequencies through a process of entrainment. 7.83hz otherwise known as the Schumann Resonance is actually the frequency of the earth itself and helps to 'ground' you through your practice. 40hz is specifically associated with ‘Gamma’ brainwave activity, integral for achieving states of peak performance. Elite athletes, top-notch musicians and high achievers in all fields, typically produce far more gamma waves than average.
And whilst all of that sounds quite serious and complicated, on a much simpler level the hum just feels good!
Our Hum was created in collaboration with composer Mitch Allen from OneTwoStudios. Mitch and his team designed a natural hum sound from a recording of our own singing bowls that they later de-tuned to resonate at 40hz.
