We pride ourselves in creating a space with a warm and inviting atmosphere. We all arrive at class for a different reason – whether it is to gain strength, heal our body, learn something new, personal growth or merely to decompress from the perceived pressures of life.



Yoga flow is an all levels class that takes you through a sequence of postures that move gracefully from one posture to the next.

Yoga flow will lengthen and strengthen your body. Practicing many of the traditional yoga postures. You will get a nice mixture of relaxation, breathwork, and energising movement.

Feeling energised and uplifted by the end of class. You can expect pranayama, mantra, meditation and alignment cues.

Restorative Yoga
Restorative yoga works on a deeper level than more active asana practices – A deeply grounding class that will bring a sense of calm & balance to your body and your day. We use poses as a tool to work energetically through the body, helping it to repair, restore and revitalise itself.

Taking time out to completely relax is something that no many of us do. Our lives are so full with work and family responsibilities that self-nurturing falls way down on the list of priorities. Making time for relaxation and nourishment is essential part of our well-being – physically mentally and emotionally.

The session is designed to allow our body and mind to deeply relax and unwind. You can expect pranayama, mantra, meditation and alignment cues.

YOGA Strength
Yoga strength is a dynamic class aimed at building strength and balance in the body. Linking our movement to breath while being aware of where our body is in space. A is a heat-building style of yoga which incorporates a warm up, sun salutations, a number of standing sequences, working to a peak pose, a floor and/or seated sequences and a restful savasana relaxation at the end.
Pilates is a class designed to improve flexibility and develop strength through the entire body. Benefits you gain are alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination, stability and balance. The focus is on gentle movements and correct engagement of the pelvic floor and abdominals to help strengthen the core and protect the back.


Yes, our beautiful studio is for hire. A wonderful space for holding workshops and events.

Hello, and welcome. My name is Emma Walkinshaw and I am the founder and owner of ‘Yoga in Paradise’ located on the vibrant Chevron Island, Gold Coast Australia.

I am a heart centred woman. I am a wife and mother of 2 beautiful children who are my greatest achievement. I have a passion for teaching yoga and all things personal development. I’m also a raving fan of empowering the self-belief in others. Today, I do it through my yoga studio “Yoga in Paradise” and my coaching practice. I am a certified life coach and a licenced facilitator of The Clarity Catalyst, an 8 week powerful personal growth workshop designed by Michael Ray from Stanford University in the USA. I am also a coach of The Desire Map by Danielle La Porte.

The heart of personal development is self-awareness. Whether it’s in a downward dog or having a conversation. When you are prepared to get out of “judgement” and into “curiosity”, you are able to answer some of the questions that often keep us searching for many years.

Here’s to finding and living unapologetically in your JOY!
