Yoga Course

Your path to wellness starts here

​Trying something you've never done before can be intimidating! That's why at Stretch we aim to make your first step into yoga as easy and fun as possible. Our four-week Beginners Yoga Course is the perfect introduction to the world of yoga, and our teachers take each class step by step to ensure you feel confident on the mat!

Fantastic for those who have never tried yoga before, or those wishing to deepen their knowledge and confidence and refine their poses. The course is Hatha Yoga based and focuses on the history and philosophy of yoga, breathing, meditation and alignment - ensuring that you have the confidence to step into any yoga class upon completion!

Achieve, celebrate, transform

Four weeks of growth

We understand that life can get busy, and commitments may arise. If you miss a week, you can always make it up in the next intake or the parallel course. Alternatively, you can explore the parallel course running concurrently at our sister studio.

Small group setting

We believe in the power of personalised attention, and that's why our commitment to your growth and well-being extends to keeping our classes intentionally small. By maintaining a cozy class size, we create an intimate and supportive environment.

14 days of free classes

We applaud your dedication to self-discovery and well-being. As you celebrate a significant milestone in your yoga journey, enjoy two weeks of unlimited yoga on the house to start your transition into regular yoga classes once you complete your course!

Join us on the mat

With parallel courses running seamlessly at both our Holland Park and Brisbane CBD studios, you have the flexibility to choose the location that suits you best. Whether you're seeking the serene ambiance of our suburban studio or the vibrant energy of the city, we've got you covered.

What do I need to bring?

For a comfortable and enjoyable experience at Stretch Yoga, we recommend bringing a few essentials:

To stay hydrated throughout your practice we recommend bringing a water bottle. Hydration is key to supporting your body as you move and stretch.

A small towel can be handy for wiping away sweat and providing additional comfort during your session.

While we have a limited number of mats available for hire at $2, we recommend bringing your own yoga mat.

What should I wear?

Remember to choose clothing that allows you to move freely and doesn't restrict your movements. As for footwear, we typically practice barefoot or with grip socks.

When it comes to attire, comfort is key. We recommend wearing breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics that allow for a full range of motion. Opt for flexible leggings or shorts paired with a comfortable tank top or T-shirt.

What if I have an injury or health concern?

We'll start to book everyone in 15 minutes prior to the class starting. Your teacher will be available to chat about anything that's going on and suggest modifications throughout the practice to keep you safe!

What happens if I miss a class?

Life happens! We allow for one make up session, so if you miss a class, you're welcome to attend a session in the next round.

Any uncertainties regarding dates or additional info, please shoot us an email.

What's on at Stretch?

Each month we have a variety of offerings, courses and workshops to help you deepen and develop your practice on and off the mat.
