Dunedin has dozens of yoga studios, but they vary. Through our research, here are the best Hatha, Vinyasa, Bikram and Yin studios in Dunedin NZ.
Best Yoga Studios in Dunedin
Dunedin is a beautiful city that isn’t so well known for its good vibes and established consciousness following, but there are certainly some yogis around. All you gotta do is search!
We decided to create a list of the best Dunedin yoga studios based on student experiences in local Facebook groups, online reviews and established followings. This took us a while but we’ve come to these conclusions.
These 5 studios you should consider visiting in the very near future:
1. Studio Tula
Awarding this winner was hard! We really did consider the other options but it seems that Studio Tula is slightly ahead of the pack, so we’ve named it the top yoga studio around the city.
You’ll find plenty of Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin offered here. Community classes on Sundays welcome those who want something less intense on the body and the budget. Clearly something here for everyone!
Address: 286 Princes Street, Dunedin
2. The Dunedin Yoga Studio
This is a very close runner up in this list. This friendly studio offers yoga, meditation and kirtan to locals and those visiting this beautiful city.
Classes include hatha, lyengar and Ashtanga so you can improve your flexibility, balance, strength and stillness both on and off the mat. Beginners are more than welcome to attend anytime.
Address: L2, 492 Moray Place, Dunedin
3. Utopia House
Coming #3 on our list is Utopia House and a place that’s certainly worthy of your attendance with a mat rolled under the arms! The teachers here are friendly and welcoming to beginners of all ages.
The timetable features classes at varying levels of difficulty. Owner Jane has built this as both a yoga and fitness studio so you can achieve holistic wellness in a safe and nurturing environment.
Address: 421 High Street, Dunedin
4. Suburban Yoga
This place has been running for almost 10 years and has a lower following than any of these others studios listed, but it’s made up for with the community spirit. Jude created this studio a little outside the city in Mornington for those looking for lyengar, hatha and anusara.
People of all ages and abilities are welcome. The space is smaller meaning you’ll probably wind up chatting to some fellow students after the class. If you’re looking for some good friends, then this is a great place to find them.
Address: 35 Crosby St, Dunedin (Mornington)
5. Hot Yoga Dunedin
Yes! Dunedin NZ has a Bikram studio on St Andrew St in the city center which is awaiting your presence. It’s actually been running for almost a decade now serving both visitors and locals to warm up on the mat.
You’ll also find Yin, Ashtanga, Hot FLow, Kundalini and Inferno Hot Pilates classes. It’s combined with a physical fitness centre if you want to develop your skills and fitness in one place.
Address: 33 St Andrew St, Dunedin
Now it’s time to find your yoga mat and cancel that online yoga platform subscription! Heading out into a yoga studio is the best way to experience some quality time to yourself without the distractions.
For beginners, here are some tips:
- Bring your own yoga mat even if they are supplied.
- Arrive 10 minutes early to your first yoga class
- Let the teacher know that you’re new (so it’s less awkward)
- Remember that yoga is an individual journey, so don’t judge the advancement of others or your own limitations in the moment
