Our For the Folk Yoga and Wellness studio was created in 2019 by Melissa Gibson.

A sanctuary solely dedicated to the practice of yoga located in Daisy Hill, Queensland.


Here we focus on evolving as a whole, physically, mentally and finding a deeper connection spiritually.

We offer space, and support you to heal, nurture and nourish each time you step on the mat. 


Our teachings stem from the traditional 8 limbs of yoga applied to our modern day living. Each class includes yoga asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation (dhyana) and yogic philosophy.  

Our teachers are passionate, authentic teachers on their own journey, soul seekers, sharing with you their knowledge through education and their own many years of yoga experience in a honest, raw, relatable way.


We encourage and welcome all people with open arms to our studio. Seasoned practitioner or total beginner. 

You have found your yoga tribe. For the Folk is your community.

Creator and owner of For the Folk Yoga and Wellness.

Melissa's teaching style is influenced by her love of Hatha and Vinyasa Flow practices.  She has a strong focus on alignment, strength and stability and a desire to bring lightness and energy to your yoga practice.


Melissa has been practising yoga over 20 years ago as a way to relax her mind and body into a journey of self exploration that flooded through every aspect of her life. This journey became a passion not only to move deeper into her own practice, but to help others do the same. In 2011 she started teaching yoga. 


Melissa is a qualified Level 2 500hr Yoga Teacher, Yin Yoga Teacher, a Reiki practitioner and is currently completing a Bachelor of Health Science -  Nutritional Medicine.


Throughout Melissa's Yoga classes you will be challenged, not only physically but also mentally and spiritually as you transform, rebuild and replenish your entire being.

"Melissa is amazing! She has a beautiful, soothing voice. She gives clear, concise directions with a strong focus of breath awareness. Beautiful sequencing that is sure to work your body, steady your mind and elevate your spirits. Her Yoga classes are fun, light hearted and accessible to all. I feel fabulous when I walk out of her class!"
