Be aware that the classes start at the time specified with no leeway given, and then the front door will be locked.
Twice I have foolishly been caught out by the Stafford traffic or the parking situation. After arriving to a locked door at 2 or 3 minutes past the start time I had to turn around and go home again.
Do yourself a favour and allow at least 10 minutes extra travel and parking time than you think you need.

Stretch, strengthen and chill in an industrial warehouse

Greenery brings peace to the converted warehouse

Until recently, if you sought a yoga studio on Brisbane's north outside the inner city, you were likely out of luck. While you can find yoga at most gyms or practice at home, it doesn't leave you with the same vibe as a dedicated studio.

Thankfully Yoga Everyday is now on the scene at Stafford, with classes and courses in yoga for "everyday people". You don't need to know your asana from your mudra here - the friendly staff behind Yoga Everyday seek to make yoga accessible to everyone.

They even have specific sessions catering for beginners, pregnant mums (5-week prenatal yoga courses starting in January), men (monthly "Broga" classes), and kids. The regular classes include yoga flow, hour of power, and yin yoga (stretching).

A street of warehouses out the back of Stafford City Shopping Centre may be an unusual place to find yoga. But the warehouse has been cleverly transformed into an expansive, comfortable studio. A massive section of the wall slides back to reveal the garden and water feature outside. Trendy lights dangling from the ceiling far overhead, indoor plants, and a theme of navy and turquoise have beautified this formerly industrial building.

Room to breathe, stretch and strengthen

Unfortunately the metal roof is not insulated which lets the Brisbane heat in. But the polished concrete floor is cool, and there are large windows, powerful fans, and a massive sliding door. And a warm body is more amenable to a good stretch anyway. In winter, the advice is to dress in layers.

If you do get sweaty and would like to freshen up, or are heading straight to work from one of the 6am sessions, showers have been built onsite.

Parking is available in the street. Although you might not find one right outside the door you shouldn't have to walk far. If you get really stuck there's always the shopping centre just around the corner (or plenty of buses nearby). There can be heavy traffic on the nearby main roads so it's sensible to plan to arrive early. BYO yoga mat or use theirs.

For your first week, $20 gives you 7 days of stretching, strengthening and relaxing. After that you have the option of dropping in ($20), or for better value working your way through a 10-visit pass, or committing to a weekly pass (with or without being locked in). It's handy to be able to buy your pass online in advance, or when you arrive.

Whether you've been meaning to try yoga for ages, or waiting for a reason to be to tempted back, Yoga Everyday is a pleasant place to take up the habit.
