If you're reading this then we don't need to convince you of the physical and spiritual benefits of a regular yoga practice. Thankfully Auckland has a number of incredible studios, offering a wide variety of styles to choose from. There really is something for everyone.
Following are what we consider to be the best yoga studios in Auckland…
Founded by hot yoga enthusiast Vicky Cullinane, Studio Red is a world-class and luxurious hot yoga studio. It offers yoga, meditation, and wellness classes in an architecturally beautiful setting.
