Arc Yoga was started in 2012 by Maria Allen following an opportunity to leave Townsville and live in Canberra for 12 months. Having practiced yoga for many years, Maria was inspired to become a teacher after seeing how her dad benefitted from yoga, and the potential for it to help people.


The name ‘Arc’ is Sanskrit (classical Indian language) for ‘Shine’. This symbolises so much of what we love about the shining qualities of yoga. See Maria’s favourite yoga photo of her father practising yoga at first light on the family farm with his dog sitting at his side.
