Our History

The Margaret River Yoga School was established in 1994 by Shane Moody and was the first, full time practising yoga school in regional Western Australia. MRYS is an Iyengar yoga school, following the teachings of B.K.S Iyengar, and offering both daytime and evening classes for students of all skill levels and experience. MRYS provides a range of classes, including beginners classes, yoga for pain and women’s classes. Our knowledgeable, experienced and qualified teachers will provide ongoing assistance and instruction as your yoga develops, and can help with any questions regarding health or injury. Since it’s inception, MRYS has been a big part of the Margaret River community as a place to learn, heal and grow.



All yoga props, mats, straps and blankets are provided with every lesson and are available for general use upon request. Yoga equipment is available to buy any time, and should you require anything more specific, please be sure to let us know. If you are a new student, please arrive to your first class 10 minutes early to introduce yourself to the instructor. If you have any concerns or injuries, don’t hesitate to let your instructor know.


The Studio

The studio is located within walking distance to the town centre, with ample parking surrounding the building.   The building is heritage listed and was once the original local blacksmiths workshop. Renovations were completed in 1994 and some modifications were carried out to ensure plenty of natural light into the space whilst maintaining the buildings old world charm.


Shane Moody

Since the passing of MRYS’s founder Shane Moody in 2017, the school has been handed passed to Ally Hately, a long time student of Shane’s, and Amitay Moody, Shane’s son. Together, they strive to keep Shane’s legacy going by offering a space to teach Iyengar yoga, where the doors are always open to students new and old.
