Beginner's Yoga Brisbane

New to Yoga?

You’ve come to the right place. Our Brisbane yoga classes really are accessible to everybody including beginners. We’ve been there too. We know that your first yoga class can be scary, that you’re not sure what to expect, that you don’t know if you’re good enough or even what to wear. Don’t worry, we have yoga classes and courses that will build your confidence, strength and flexibility. You don’t’ have to be fit or flexible to do yoga. You don’t need fancy clothes and you don’t even need a yoga mat – you can use ours.

Pregnant and new to yoga? We recommend pre-natal classes at Stretch Yoga or Inna Bliss Yoga. Pre-natal yoga is a specialty that we don’t offer.

Which yoga class is for me?

Both the Vinyasa Basics and Yin yoga classes are suitable for beginners but there’s a big difference between the two. If you’re looking for something really gentle and relaxing without working up a sweat then the Yin class is for you. This is perfect for those looking to develop their flexibility, calm their mind, manage stress and rehabilitate from injury as it focuses on deep, passive stretches.

The Vinyasa Basics class is an active yoga class featuring traditional standing and seated poses as well as sun salutations. It’s much slower than a regular Vinyasa class and features more alignment cues so you can be sure you’re doing it right.

What do I need to bring?

Wear comfy gym clothes, bring a water bottle and mat if you have one, otherwise borrow one of ours.

If you tend to sweat a lot, bring a towel.

Yoga is a barefoot activity so no shoes are required.

Please wear deodorant and ensure your body and clothes are odour free. We do a lot of deep breathing in yoga and there’s nothing worse than inhaling someone’s body odour.

Do I need to book or sign up for a series of classes or a course?

No, we want to make it easy for you. Just show up 15 minutes early to any yoga class you want to attend. You don’t need to enroll in the 5 Week Beginner’s Yoga Course to start with us. Just come along to any Vinyasa Basics class.

Yoga etiquette and things to know during class

  • Practice yoga on an empty stomach, avoid large meals 2 hours before class (light snacks are ok)
  • Always let your teacher know if you’ve been sick, have an injury, medical condition or are pregnant
  •  If you have a cold or flu, please be mindful of your fellow yogis and stay home until you are well

  • Turn your phone off
  • Unless you are feeling unwell, please stay for the duration of the class
  • Leave your belongings in the change room
