Yoga rave and free classes to celebrate Essence of Living milestone

LOCAL yoga and pilates lovers are in for a weekend of bliss, with free classes and fun on the cards at Essence of Living.

The renowned Broadbeach studio and school is celebrating it’s 10th birthday with an array of festivities this weekend.

Gold Coasters can enjoy a glow-in-the-dark yoga rave tonight, a stunning exhibition by photographer Linda Angledal on Saturday night, and free classes all day on Saturday and Sunday.


Owner Michelle Merrifield, who opened the studio when she was just 22, said the weekend is a chance to celebrate this significant milestone and pay tribute to the staff and clients who have made the studio such a success.

“The success of the business is of course something to celebrate, but more important to me are the lives that we have helped transform through yoga and Pilates,” she said.

“I live and breathe my vocation, as it resonates with every cell of my body,” Michelle says. “I truly love what I do and I want to share my passion with the world around me and hope to create a happier, healthier world.”

“Celebrating our 10th birthday gives us the opportunity to share yoga and Pilates with even more people on the Gold Coast. We can’t wait to welcome everyone.”
