Studio Red Yoga
We welcome yoga enthusiasts of all levels at Studio Red, including absolute beginners. The classes, taught by studio manager Erica Davis and her passionate team, incorporate Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, as well as a Vinyasa flow to music. Our open-level classes are perfect for those just starting out in yoga or for those who have been practising for some time. The warm room means you can really stretch your body and the heat intensifies the workout to challenge you both physically and mentally. We look forward to welcoming you into Studio Red, so you can enjoy practising with some of the best teachers in a beautiful environment that makes hot yoga a transformative experience.
Designed by award-winning Cheshire Architects, our studio is one of the first Auckland examples of the big-city trend towards uncrowded, contemporary yoga spaces that focus on design, as well as increased comfort and hygiene. “Our purpose-built studio, in the bustling City Works Depot on Wellesley Street, has been designed as a modern sanctuary that feels more day-spa than fitness studio. It’s an experience the moment you walk through the door” says founder and hot yoga enthusiast Vicky Cullinane.
Tall, generous spaces, polished concrete floors, discrete lighting, beautifully appointed dressing rooms and two large, luxurious bathrooms create a boutique hotel-like ambience. “We set out to create a yoga studio of great elegance and amenity,” says Nat Cheshire, the architect whose practice is behind some of Auckland’s most celebrated urban transformations, including City Works Depot. The yoga area itself has been the main focus. It features fragrant cedar lining, the highest quality German flooring, sophisticated temperature control systems, ventilation and acoustic controls to maintain the peacefulness of the inner studio.
