A new yoga studio has opened up in the Melbourne suburb of Moorabbin, offering a full sensory experience that explores colour, light, sound and movement in combination with traditional yoga healing.
The first of its kind in Australia, The Light Practice features a particularly unique offering through sound journey and gong healing classes, which is said to help students “drop into a deep meditation state within 60-90 seconds”, particularly useful for those who find meditation challenging.
“The vibration of sound is known to quite literally rearrange disease and re-align the cells back into homeostasis,” says the press release.
“Sound is one of the quickest ways to access a meditative state.”

Indeed, although still considered alternative medicine, vibration healing is believed to aid conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, Parkinson’s, and sports injuries by releasing tension and stimulating the nervous system.
It’s certainly not a new concept, however, sound healing is an ancient practice. Also known as a gong bath, it has its roots in Chinese and Buddhist rituals and ceremonies dating back thousands of years.
“These modalities of light and sound have now been re-imagined innovatively combined by The Light Practice to deliver a truly new and unique yoga offering,” the press release continues.
“Each class incorporates low-level light projections” to enhance the experience and “evoke flow state”.
The studio also offers an infrared sauna, wellness practitioners, and a café opening soon.
