Noosa & Sunshine Beach
If you’re on the hunt for a killer yoga and Pilates studio on the Sunshine Coast, Noosa Flow is arguably the most beautiful yoga space we’ve set foot in. Noosa Flow has since expanded to a second location in Sunshine Beach and both studios are as beautiful as each other.
With plenty of natural light and loads of indoor plants, you’ll feel refreshed before you’ve even found your zen. From Vinyasa flow and Yin flow, to pre-natal flow and a special mums and bubs yoga class, whatever it is you’re chasing, you’ll most likely find it at these two special yoga and Pilates studios.
Morning Light Studio
One of our favourite additions to our list of the Sunshine Coast’s best yoga studios, Morning Light Studio is found on Level 1 of the Kawana Sports Hub, and the name couldn't be more fitting. The levelled studio overlooks the Kawana canals and provides your yoga session with breathtaking sunrise and sunset views. Morning Light Studio offers yoga, Pilates and barre classes perfect for the fitness enthusiast.
Haven Yoga Studio
Haven Yoga Studio certainly lives up to its name—the peaceful yoga studio is much like a sanctuary, or dare we say, haven for those looking to slow down and take a step back from their busy lives. Located in the heart of Buderim, this studio has a strong focus on providing a safe space, while still challenging you if you want a push. Choose from gentle yoga and yin classes and barre and pilates classes and test the waters with their 21-day introductory offer.

Catering to all levels, from total novices to advanced yogis, a packed timetable with plenty of teachers leading the way, means you’re bound to find the right yoga class for you.

Bikram Yoga Sunshine Coast
If you’ve shied away from yoga in the past because you “won’t sweat” during the workout, the Bikram experience is for you. Bikram Yoga Sunshine Coast offers the original hot workout which entails 90 minutes of stretching, flexing, balancing and posing in a purpose-built heated room.
Bikram offers a range of extra health benefits for the practicing yogini—including a deeper stretch from a warmer body, a mentally challenging environment (not dissimilar to working out inside a sauna) as well as toxin-releasing qualities from the large quantities of fluid you’ll be losing during the session. If the Bikram challenge sounds like your cup of tea, classes are held in Caloundra. Cap your workout off with a cold-pressed juice by the ocean once you’re done.
If you’re a yogi with an environmental conscience, CGM Pilates studio fit-out is made from local and ethically produced items, including the hand-made reclaimed timber furniture and the 100% VOC free paint on the walls.

With an introductory offer that offers you unlimited classes for two weeks for the sweet price of $60, this is hands down one of the best yoga studios on the Sunny Coast.
