Best Yoga Studios in Ballina NSW
We’ve done the research for you! We have audited a number of the local yoga studios for their general atmosphere and their social media signals.
The reviews and the general vibes of these studios were also taken into mind. With that, we’ve come up to this great list which includes Ballina Bikram, Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga classes for all levels of experiences.
Let’s kick this off!
1. Ballina Yoga
Yep, this place is literally called Ballina Yoga. You’ll find them at 182 River St and there are some seriously positive experiences that students have had here. They’ve just did a renoation to their premises as well.
The timetable includes Lyengar, Yin and Vinyasa Flow. You’ll find them to be very accommodating to total beginners as well as catering for those who have been doing yoga a while.
2. Yoga 4 U Ballina
This is a little strange of a bhakti yoga studio to have as a name, but nonetheless they are right there in town. The classes here are safe and gentle for all levels with a terrific outlook.
The best part about this place? It’s right there on the esplanade by the beach. You can jump straight in the ocean afterwards if you’re not refreshed after that prolonged savasana that their classes typically end with.
3. Jenny’s Yoga
Jenny runs yoga in Ballina and Lennox Head. The classes are frequented by the older generation (hint: retirees) but younger people do come to her classes quite often too.
You won’t really find her classes on social media as her students hardly use it, so you’re far better off using the phone and checking her regular timetable. She runs her classes twice weekly at the Ballina CWA Hall and it’s typically on Tuesdays. It’s best to call her for pre-booking on 02 6687 5140.
The best part is that there is plenty of space to stretch out and you won’t feel intimidated. If you’re the type who doesn’t like Instagram style yoga, then you’ll love it here. Nothing to pretend about!
4. Use the gym
There are several gyms in Ballina and they offer yoga classes on occasions. To be honest, they aren’t going to have the same vibe as a genuinely set-up yoga studio, but the real advantage is that you can go there for strength and cardio training as well as pilates.
Also consider doing yoga from home. This has become popular in recent years and you won’t even need to leave home. Some people also simply head up to Byron Bay for yoga instead of using of the local options.
Yoga isn’t daunting. Even if you’ve never done it before, it’s best to start today and start reclaiming flexibility and vitality in your life.
Always aim to be 10 minutes early to any class and bring your own yoga mat, towel and drink bottle. Even in the winter months we typically find we are thirsty after a yoga class, even if it’s slow and mellow.
Also – leave your phone alone. In fact, just leave it in the car as you don’t need any distractions. Yoga is about relaxing and releasing both the mental and physical.
