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.




Suitable for beginners all the way to advanced yogis, our yoga class on the Gold Coast will take you through a sequence of postures that help unite mind, body and spirit. 

Our teachers bring their own flair, background and experience to the practice, creating a tapestry of new ideas, and a range of insight and techniques to help you get the most out of your yoga experience. 

Leave class feeling: Energised, uplifted, stronger.

Perfect for: Anyone wanting to decompress and align movement with their breath while lengthening and strengthening the body.

You can expect: Pranayama (breath), asana (posture), mantra, meditation and alignment cues.

Restorative YIN Yoga

Craving an excuse to unwind, go deeper into your breath and therapeutically work through sequences centred around flexibility, muscle release and meditation? Our yin classes on the Gold Coast are suitable for yogi’s at all levels, even those recovering from injury. Prepare to relax into postures as we hold them for 3-5 minutes, awakening meridian channels and releasing tension in your muscles, joints and, most importantly, your mind. 

Leave class feeling: Relaxed, nourished, revitalised.

Perfect for: Those wanting to decompress, bring a sense of calm and balance to their day while working on their flexibility and breath.

You can expect: Slow, steady, curated movement with a mix of pranayama (breath), meditation and alignment cues.


Don’t be fooled by the name; you do not require any prior dance experience to feel and see the benefits of our barre classes on the Gold Coast. Barre is a high-intensity fusion of Pilates and dance-inspired movement that will leave your muscles burning, all while building good posture and alignment. Our teachers deliver fun, fast-paced classes that will have you smiling and craving more. If you are concerned about the speed or are recovering from an injury, try a traditional Pilates class first before diving into barre. 

Leave class feeling: Toned, lengthened, sweaty.

Perfect for: Gals and guys wanting a fun, fast-paced workout paired with an epic playlist.

You can expect: Burn, lots and lots of burn. Barre is a whole-body workout, with a focus on the quad, glutes and core. 


The goal of Pilates is to strengthen the entire body, with a focus on core activation and pelvic stability. Pilates is a low-impact, controlled form of exercise that can be practised every day and is fantastic for those recovering from or wishing to avoid injury. Our Pilates classes on the Gold Coast use bodyweight and small props such as the Pilates ball, magic circle, band and 1kg weights to build long, lean muscles. Chances are you might wake up a muscle you didn’t even know existed!  

Leave class feeling: Balanced, energised, aligned.

Perfect for: Beginners to advanced Pilates students seeking core strength and a whole body workout.

You can expect: A dynamic workout for the whole body using low impact exercises and a strong focus on alignment and control. 

Dynamic Reformer

A classic reformer Pilates class on the Gold Coast that works the entire body through low-impact movements. This 45-minute workout will challenge your body, with a strong focus on your core strength, posture, balance, and flexibility. Expect fun yet challenging sequences that will leave you feeling stronger, more aligned and invigorated at the end of each class.

Leave class feeling: Aligned, strong, lengthened

Perfect for: Anyone seeking a low-impact and effective way to build strength and balance throughout the entire body.

You can expect: A mix of movements that challenge the entire body in a safe, controlled environment. 

Cardio Reformer

The perfect fusion of classic reformer moves to strengthen your body, and cardio sequences that will raise your heart rate and get you working up a sweat. This class is a fantastic low-impact workout for those wanting to add some more intensity to their workout schedule, burning calories while working the whole body.

Perfect for: Anyone needed a cardio infusion in their weekly routine.

Reformer Stretch

Step into the slow lane and exhale into some juicy stretches that lengthen out your body with the help of the reformer.

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!
