OUR CLASSES

All of our classes include options & alternative movements so that all bodies are given the support they deserve.

This includes aids such as chairs, bands & hands-on guidance from Chloe.

Bend & Stretch 

Great for releasing & letting go.

Join us as Chloe guides you through a sequence of dynamic (moving) and static (holding) stretches, mobility training & fascial release (think foam rollers, trigger point balls). Fill up your self care cup as you build flexibility, protect against injury and correct your posture. This class leaves you feeling relaxed, calm & blissed out! We recommend a minimum of one B&S class for all Girl Gang members to ensure you recover well. 

Guided meditation & mindfulness activity included in each class. 

AGILE   

Sweat mindfully with Chloe & our girl gang. An all body workout with a focus on core, glute and posture strengthening exercises with a mix of agility, balance, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) Tabata and partner work thrown in - that will challenge you to stay in the moment & move!

Strong 

This class is designed to make you feel like Wonder Woman- strong & you know it! This class focuses on helping you conquer movement patterns that we use (& need to use safely!) in everyday life- such as the squat, deadlift, horizontal & vertical push & pull.  We use free weights to build strong muscles (you won't get bulky promise!) as Chloe guides you through with options for all bodies. We recommend coming to at least 2 classes a week if you are wanting to build strength.

TRIBE

Tribe is our weekly 'self care' check in with Chloe. Share a cheeky cuppa with Chloe (or bring along your dinner or both!) as you are led through setting grace-filled goals, mindful activity & discussion. A great time to catch up with your girl gang, check in that your goals are still grace-filled and take stock of your 'small victories'. A time to be encouraged and uplifted as a 'Girl Gang'. Come along before Bend & Stretch & make some deeper friendships!

Tribe is a 10 week course run during the school term-

Free for all members. Limited to 8 ppl per session.

THRIVE  MEDITATION

Come join Chloe, an experienced Holistic Meditation Teacher (Diploma from Yoga Alliance Australia) as you are led through a beginner guided meditation. All of her meditations have a focus on self compassion, body awareness, holding space for self & self care.

Chloe holds space for you lovingly observe your body & thoughts minus judgement. Each class begins with some gentle stretches to allow you to settle into your chosen pose (sitting or lying).

Chloe explains common misconceptions about meditation at the beginning of each class to help remind you about your practice & how it can help your mental health.  (e.g. often your mind will become louder during meditation, but how we redirect our thoughts with kindness not judgement makes all the difference!)   

Our weekly Thrive meditation goes for 30 minutes for those who want to immerse themselves in their practice in a supportive, guided environment.    

If you think meditation isn't for you read this:

There is no "ONE" way to meditation- like styles of music or your favourite shoes- you must find a way that fits you. Chloe uses both concentrative and mindfulness-based meditation to help you connect to your breath & your body.   

Concentrative Meditation focuses your attention on your breathing whilst using an image, or a sound (often called a sound/work) to allow you to narrow your focus and be intently focused on one thing. For example, you can be led to focus through a forest, onto a tree and then onto one particular branch or leaf, allowing you to remove all other things until you are left with one focal point. 

Mindfulness Meditation involves opening your awareness and allowing yourself to notice & observe feelings, thoughts, sounds, images, smells etc without delving deep into thought about them. Think of it as if you are an active observer, like watching people watching at the airport but not becoming an active character in your observation. This involves consciously practicing careful observation rather than reaction. Ultimately all meditation uses different techniques to build our focus and attention. Chloe's unique style is not spiritual and allows beginner's to slowly deepen their practice to aid their mental health.
