Best Mount Barker Yoga Studios
There isn’t any need to drive down to Adelaide and deal with all that unnecessary traffic and red lights. Stay up there in the hills and experience what the options right in town are.
Based on our research of reading student experiences and reviews, plus evaluating social media profiles, it’s evident that these studios are leading the way:
1. Unfold Yoga + Wellbeing
Easily Mount Barker’s best yoga studio is Unfold Yoga + Wellbeing. We love their philosophy and what they stand for. Just yoga without Instagram feel!
Loretta the owner founded this place in 2012 and since then has become the go-to place to find quality yoga classes. From Lyengar to hatha and yin, you’ll certainly feel engaged here.
2. Peak Physique Hot Yoga Mount Barker
In the coldest days of winter, you just when you could do some Bikram yoga in Mount Barker and thanks to this yoga studio, you certainly can! This is a national brand, with several studios in South Australia and have their own studio in town.
We always feel that some hot yoga studios are a bit ‘odd’ but not this place. It is quite modern, clean and the teachers are very much professional with plenty of space to really stretch out.
3. Adelaide Hills Recreation Centre
Yes, the Rec centre in Mount Barker runs yoga classes a few times per week. Are they our most preferred option? Not really as the sound and environment isn’t perfect for yoga.
With those complaints aside you can actually join a membership where you can get general fitness classes and yoga classes within the same membership. You might even want to hang back later for strength or cardio training or even use the tennis courts.
4. Adelaide Hills Bikram Centre
“But that yoga studio isn’t in Mount Barker….” and yes, that’s true. We just feel that the drive down to Stirling is worth it if you’re already heading into the city. The Adelaide Hills Bikram Centre at Stirling is highly rated with many positive reviews.
If you’re not into hot yoga then they also offer Bikram classes. There are multiple classes on daily in the early morning, afternoon and evening. If you’re already working in Adelaide then you can stop in this studio on the way through in the morning or after work.
Have we missed anything? There are some other yoga studios in town that are gaining in popularity. If you’ve come across a studio that you believe we should know about, then leave your comments below!
One of the best things is the easy parking here. That’s one of the key reasons why yogis move from Adelaide up to the hills because the traffic is becoming quite crazy.
Likewise, all of these places welcome beginners without being judgemental like the inner-city studios. Bring your own yoga mat, towel and water bottle but most importantly, plan to arrive 10 minutes early. Sometimes there are some forms that need to be filled in even if you’re just doing casual classes for now.
Also, look out on the Facebook groups for the kirtan and meditation events that often occur in the Adelaide Hills year-round. They are a welcome escape from the daily challenges of life.
