One Hot Yoga in South Yarra has a new sibling, One Hot Pilates. This is really exciting news for yogis and Pilates-goers keen to expand their exercise repertoire, or anyone who fancies giving either a go.
The new studio space is the result of a marriage between yogi and studio owner Lucinda Mills and architect Rob Mills. There are now four studios offering a total of 114 Yoga and Pilates classes a week, including reformer and hot mat Pilates, Hot Yoga, Power Yoga and Yin.
I’ve been doing reformer Pilates for seven years and I have to say that this marriage between architect and yogi is a winning combination. The One Hot Yoga and Pilates experience is based on the point of connection between architecture, Yoga and Pilates, being that the space we inhabit both inside and outside our bodies directly influences our physical and psychological wellbeing. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
I kickstarted my week with a reformer Pilates class and was really impressed by the whole experience – the space, the calming music, the quality of teaching and brand spanking new beds that glide so smoothly I could slide up and down them all day. I walked out floating on air and glided peacefully and mindfully through the rest of my day. I was equally as impressed with the Hot Yoga class for beginners.
If you are an avid yogi or pilates-goer I highly recommend being adventurous and mixing things up. I find that both practices really complement each other, with the strength I gain in Pilates helping my yoga poses, and the length, flexibility and sense of calm I get from Yoga really helping my Pilates, not to mention the profound impact it has on my overall sense of wellbeing.
The One Hot Everything membership not only offers ridiculously good value for money, but really supports your ability to be guided by how your body is feeling. For just $50 a week you can attend as many Yoga and Pilates classes as you like. Not convinced? You can try before you buy, with $50 trial memberships giving you two weeks of unlimited classes.
The official opening day of One Hot Pilates is happening this Saturday 15 November, with free taster classes on offer this week. To find out more go to www.onehotyoga.com.au
