Hi -Does anyone know if there’s any drum circles in Canberra?

It would be fun I reckon.

Do they exist here in Canberra or do I need to head North to Nimbin or somewhere like that??

I’ve got a mate who goes to the drumming circle. I used to take the p**s out of him for going (load of ex-hippies sitting in a circle drumming?! – weird!) but he reckons it’s a great stress beater and its ‘normal’ folk who go along! Fair play, whatever.

Anyway, is that Soul Yoga place in Torrens new? I thought there used to be an Estate Agents there? They’ve got a few things going on there, including Chair Yoga (whatsthatabout!!??)! Its on their website http://www.soulyogacanberra.com.au under Weekend Workshops…

I keep meaning to give Yoga a try, but its finding time! Does anyone on Riot-ACT do Yoga? If so, is ‘Soul Yoga’ any good (as its quite local to me)?

There is a drum circle at Soul Yoga Studio Torrens shops every second tuesday night, 8-9pm. Recommences 9th feb.

You can join a drum circle with Peter every second Tuesday at Soul Yoga – here’s the website


Also goes on to say: “research has found that the rhythmic sounds of drumming, which has the power to activate all brain centres, can achieve similar results to that of acupuncture & massage”. So there you go!

“Can you hear the drums Fernando . . ?”

You don’t have to be a hippy to like drumming and geesh what a way to welcome someone new to the site and to Canberra. No wonder people from out of Canberra have such a high opinion of the place.

Head up the Federal highway for a few hours back the way you came from and you might find one there, you can cry about your father on the way. Hippy!

thanks for the advice, cheers

Head to Commonwealth Park on a Sunday (or maybe it’s Saturday) afternoon. Down near the amphitheatre and castle. I think it’s mid afternoon. There are two groups that I’ve seen in that general vicinity. Just hang around there for a while and then head for the sound of the drums.

I agree with the toad.

good luck to you my friend – just do it far far away from me.

Local lass Kate is heavily involved in beatiung things with sticks. Sure she can point you in the right direction… you’ll find details at the site below.


There’s a drum circle who drum at the Baptist Church in Kingston. Think it might be a paid class type thing tho.

They do exist in Canberra, not sure exactly where though (above Griffith shops springs to mind) or who you need to contact.
