FITNESS & YOGA STUDIO

A refreshing new body-inclusive studio that is anything but your regular gym!

FITNESS & YOGA STUDIO IN SUMMER HILL

A welcoming body-affirming studio that is anything but your ordinary gym!

Haven is a special body-affirming space designed to help our members cultivate a peaceful relationship with their bodies through movement, yoga and self-compassion.

We're proudly fat-positive, non-diet and weight-inclusive - meaning we don't focus on weight loss, rather we neutralise body size and gently draw your attention to enjoying movement and caring for your body - not controlling it, shrinking it or judging it.

At Haven, body diversity is celebrated, and all bodies - whether tall/short, big/small, black/white, young/old, tight/flexible, slow/fast,  - are equally valued and warmly welcomed!

Weight-inclusive, HAES-aligned approach

We know that  bodies are diverse, and fitness & health come in all shapes & sizes.

Rather than focus on aesthetics and weightloss, our approach centres around compassionate movement - honouring your body's needs whether that be a strong sweaty session or enjoying something more gentle.

No mirrors, no judgements, no gym-bros & no diet-culture! 

You will never see any suggestion that your body should be 'fixed', shrunk, manipulated! We're proudly fat positive and actively promote body diversity and encourage challenging society's narrow body ideals.

We strive to foster an environment that supports our community to feel at ease and free to explore movement without judgements, egos or toxic gym culture.

LGBTQ+ Friendly 

We're LGBTQ+ friendly and all women (cis & trans), non-binary folk & gender diverse folk who resonate with our ethos and are seeking a weight inclusive fitness community are welcome!

We invite all newcomers to meet over a cuppa which helps us to protect the special community we've built, and ensure those who visit too support a welcoming, safe space.

"I am so grateful for your encouragement and support. I've spent the last 5 years unlearning a lifetime of disordered eating and body shame so finding Haven has been life changing for me.  I honestly didn't think i would ever enjoy movement as much as this - yoga is something i will do for life now. Thank you for creating such a safe and supportive community" 💖
