Gladstone isn’t really big on yoga but there are certainly multiple weekly classes and studios around that cater for total beginners and tourist.
In this guide, we’re going to show you exactly where you can go. These places are established and offer Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and even Bikram.
Best Gladstone Yoga Studios
In creating this list, we looked at what the town actually offers. Yes, there isn’t much as the community is small but it’s certainly growing! IBIS World did a yoga market research report which shows steady growth in the Australian market.
Smaller towns are slower to catch up but the area benefits because it’s so close to the Great Barrier Reef and therefore attracts tourists. If you’re going to Gladstone for a holiday then why not do some yoga as well!
Here are the best yoga studios in town:
1. The Railway Shala
A really great place run by Anita is The Railway Shala which is one of the premier yoga studios in Gladstone and surrounds. You’ll found it at 25 Olsen Avenue right by the golf course.
2. Gladstone Yoga
A very community-driven place is Gladstone Yoga. They also run kids yoga classes here and salsa dancing quite often, as well as meditation classes. For those 60+ they even have specialty classes not to be missed!
It’s not as visually beautiful as The Railway Shala but it’s certainly quite affordable and genuine. If it’s your first time going to yoga then this is a great starting spot and the owner is super friendly.
3. Hub Fitness
If you go into Hub Fitness in town then you can actually get a membership which covers you for a range of classes. Guess what? They also have yoga and pilates classes right here in Gladstone!
Pricing is quite affordable and you’ll find them at 85 Sunvalley Road. This place lacks the zen-like atmosphere of a genuine yoga-only studio but makes up for that in offering so much more value if you’re also into strength and cardio training.
4. Epic Yoga & Lifestyle
There are reports that this place has closed down. Can anyone confirm? According to their Facebook page, it still appears open and it’s located right next to a very nice cafe.
Either way this place really does look stunning and a great way to escape for an hour or two on a yoga mat.
Are you a total beginner? You don’t need to be afraid at all. Going into a yoga studio for the first time can seem daunting but keep in mind that all these yoga studios that we’ve listed here have beginner-friendly classes and the teachers don’t pass judgement. They have the country-town vibes, unlike the big cities who are all about Instagram.
Just remember to be there early for your first class and bring your own mat, towel and water bottle. Consider checking out a few of these places first with casual passes then taking up a monthly subscription plan.
