Cairns Yoga for visitors

Cairns Yoga classes are many. Cairns is blessed with a huge range of yoga schools, workshops and yoga classes group & private lessons at all levels of ability from beginners to advanced. Many of these have drop in & single classes ideal if you are travelling and would like to do yoga whilst on holiday. While on holidays in Cairns I stayed at a lovely little retreat in Yorkey’s Knob surrounded by rainforest & by the beach, even though it isn’t a yoga retreat it has that serene peaceful tranquillity about it. The natural environment there lends to being a retreat & they are so close to the Yorkeys Knob Beach Yoga Centre so I was able to get classes in & then come back to the benefits of the peaceful location where I could unwind & immerse myself in nature rainforest & the ocean.

Accommodation 50m from the beach

I was looking to join a local yoga class during my relaxing holiday in Cairns. Peter from Villa Marine was very knowledgeable and was able to offer me many suggestions for yoga classes that are run in the area as well as options in Central Cairns

Yorkeys Knob Yoga Centre – Yorkeys Yoga

There were many other Cairns Yoga centres in Cairns that I could have also gone to but I went to a class at the Yoga studio right there in Yorkey’s  Knob just 5-minute walk from my holiday accommodation. There were a couple of other people staying at Villa Marine who was also practising yoga so it was a nice to be able to share with others when travelling by yourself. I chose the 9 am class so I would be refreshed and ready for the rest of my day in paradise but the Yorkeys Knob Yoga Centre, Ph: 0412 988 987

There was also standup paddleboard Yoga right out the front of the beach which was just amazing experience, just ask at Villa Marine. They also have spare paddleboards as well as the beach hire. There is also Yoga on the Yorkeys beach on Sundays in the morning. This Cairns beach yoga session was one of my favourites as the location & surroundings were so beautiful & allowed you to really unwind.

Yorkeys Knob Community Centre Yoga classes

I should also mention the Yorkey’s Knob Community Centre yoga class that runs from the Yorkeys Knob community centre & these were very cheap mostly locals but also great. I choose the very early morning class but there were other classes. So for me, I found Yorkeys Knob to be a little yoga hive of activity whereas at other Cairns locations I found the classes & schools were more spread out & dispersed.

I was lucky enough to be able to get to several classes during my stay as there are classes run in various places at different times throughout the day. I spent a beautiful moonlit hour on the beachfront with the lovely Dagmar at Kewarra  Beach on a Tuesday night,  Namaste’ Dagma!
