Walking into Happy Melon Studios in Armadale, Melbourne is a little like walking into a really good friends home - a friend who just so happens to have impeccable taste! The homely and serene yoga studio was Co-Founded by Simon Davey and Masha Gorodilova, who take pride in the fact that their clients see the studios as a 'home away from home', a serene place they come to rejuvenate, reflect and connect. I caught up with Simon and Masha for a tour of their delightful studio place.

“Our favourite space is the reception areas with seats, tea and books - it’s here our community is built... It’s our version of the family kitchen table.”

“The most important element was to have a functional space, which was bathed in natural light and communal spaces - encouraging connection and conversation.”
