About YHC

Yoga and Natural Therapies Northern Beaches

The Collective grew from humble beginnings in the Jacaranda canopy that was Avalon Yoga around 2010. In 2014 we expanded into Mona Vale where we were the only established school at the time. Much has changed in our village since then, and Mona Vale has become a hub for fitness, natural therapies, yoga and meditation. We are genuinely appreciative that the Mona Vale and Northern Beaches communities continue to value our work. 

Yolande Hyde is founder and principal teacher at The Collective and her creativity and gentle nature form the scaffold of the center supporting a diverse platform of senior yoga teachers, traditional and specialty yoga classes, a natural therapies clinic and yogic studies.

Hailing from the Iyengar system Yolande weaves her love of yoga asana with 20 years of study into the philosophy of Taoism, the Five Element Theory and the I Ching. At the Collective we call it Seasonal Yoga and it’s what we do best. 

We offer live in studio, live online and prerecorded class and course content from some of the most senior teachers on the beaches.  This means you can access us in person if you live on the Northern Beaches, or online if you find yourself somewhere else.


If you are the type of student who is looking for high quality instruction and senior teachers with an attention to detail and the capacity to expand you beyond where you are now then you are one of us. If you want to feel confident attending specialty classes – especially for beginners, seniors or those in rehab, then our teaching faculty is right for you. Our teachers are Yoga Australia registered and as such, claims can be made against your health insurance for your yoga practice where applicable.

Our Natural Therapies Clinic offers specialists in natural fertility, massage, acupuncture, Chiropractic, Osteopathic and Yoga therapy. On the spot health fund claims are available for most practitioners. 

Our staff are yoga teachers and healing professionals in their own right and can help to guide you to the best yoga class or most appropriate natural therapy practitioner. Our reception is open 6 mornings a week for face to face contact or catch us via email, phone, messenger or text 7 days a week. 

This place holds a sacred space for YOU – For your health, for the light of your heart and for all that you need to be the best you can be.
