BodyMindLife is a renowned leader in Yoga, Pilates, and holistic wellness. For over two decades, we've curated serene environments dedicated to healing. Our Surry Hills studio, boasting an exceptional team of instructors, offers the ideal setting to rejuvenate, and enjoy. We are here to provide unwavering support and nurture all your wellness aspirations.



Born from a desire to empower reconnection through education, BodyMindLife was established in 2002, and co-founded by yoga teacher and entrepreneur Phil Goodwin.

Phil and his wife Ferique now co-own and run BodyMindLife from their Byron home, raising their young daughter, Gigi. Ferique Brown is an award-winning architect and designer. She has helped to shape the heart of BodyMindLife by designing meaningful spaces with regard to their energetic qualities using sacred geometry to encapsulate healing.

Beyond their contributions to the wellness industry, Phil and Ferique lead a multifaceted lifestyle as organic farmers, tending to vegetable crops and revitalising farmland. Their dedication extends to overseeing a homeschool program benefiting 20 families, tailored to children aged 6 to 12. This initiative prioritises project-based learning and the cultivation of emotional intelligence among young learners.

They are also deeply immersed in cutting-edge technology, with a mission to empower and establish resilient and sustainable micro-communities. Our Byron bay studio is the first example of this in the country

The driving force behind their vision is a profound heart connection that continually ignites their passion for community. Their collective vision is simple: for every individual involved with BodyMindLife, their experience should be a catalyst for personal evolution, connection, and growth.

"BodyMindLife welcomes everyone. We aspire for each individual, whether they spend a day, a week, or five years with us, to witness an enhancement in their life. Our commitment to providing accurate information empowers our teachers, staff, and students to make better lifestyle choices and decisions. As this information is internalised, it transforms into knowledge, and from knowledge arises wisdom. Change is possible no matter what your circumstance or who your are."
