Finding a yoga studio
Now that we can see what the best yoga studios in Adelaide have to offer, let’s help you decide which one would be right for you. Essentially, there are some things you should consider and think about when deciding.
Some yoga studios provide free yoga mat hire for students whilst others charge. Some don’t even have mats for hire nor will they let you store yours there for when you’re away.
It’s ideal that you look for a studio that has the amenities that you’re needing. That can include clean toilets, non-stairs entry, easy car parking and minimal disruptions from traffic.
Yoga timetables and class schedules can be all over the place. Look for a yoga studio that caters towards your work times so you can make a class when it bests suits you.
You might find a studio that runs most of their workshops and classes on weekends. Likewise, some studios run the bulk of their classes in the mornings so you can start the day refresh, sometimes even before the sun rises!
It goes without saying that your yoga teacher should have experience. This includes the 200-hour yoga teacher accreditation as well as ongoing study.
It’s good to check online first with their corresponding websites to ensure they do have the experience that you’re looking for. This includes specific training on the forms of yoga that you’re specifically interested in, such as Yin and Bikram.
Does their studio look grim and run down, or bright and airy? Have they maintained the entrance way and is their shop area looking neat and tidy?
Aesthetics go a long way to present a yoga studio to be a clean and holistic place for which to switch off from the headaches of everyday life.
Some places charge expensive prices for their yoga classes while some are simply more cheaper. You shouldn’t decide but on cost alone but by actual value, considering that some classes run longer than the usual 60 minutes.
Often the best way to save money is the annual yoga pass but this should only be taken up after you’ve stayed at the same studio for 12 months and enjoy the good vibes there.
The location of the studio is certainly important. While Adelaide does have good public transport and less hectic traffic than say Melbourne and Sydney, you still don’t want to be driving for more than 10 minutes to a class.
Not only that, but there should be easy car parking and the studio itself should be away from the main road frontage. The last thing you’ll want to hear is traffic! The entrance should also be well-lit so you don’t slip when we get those rain storms.
Adelaide does indeed have some great yoga studios to choose from with various forms of yoga on offer. From Ashtanga to Yin and Vinyasa, you’ll certainly find something suitable for you and not far from home either.
Find a studio that speaks to your soul with nourishment and appreciation. That might entail using casual passes and trying out several yoga studios before you find “the one” that you call home. After some time, consider going on an Adelaide yoga retreat or joining yoga teacher training for which numerous of these yoga studios offer.
