Tucked behind bustling Chapel Street, Yoga XTC is the newest kid on the block, and boy can South Yarra residents feel the heat.
Stepping into the Wilson Street studio, expect to be met with an air of the peacefulness and tranquility that washes over you in an instant.
Founder of Yoga XTC and multi-tasking pro, Christine Lau is a solicitor by day, yogi by night (she almost sounds like a superhero). Her philosophy is simple, balance in all aspects of life is the key to optimal health.
Offering classes on both the yin and yang sides of the fence, Yoga XTC aims to keep a sometimes crazy life, calmly in check.
There’s five different types of warm or hot yoga classes available daily, and seven different yoga instructors on rotation, so you can guarantee the classes all have their own spin.
What sets Yoga XTC apart from most yoga studios is the range of Fit classes offered in the back of the studio, which involve
s high intensity interval training focusing on weights and cardio. Those who are game are given a heart rate monitor, and your heart rate percentages are projected onto a screen, showing you the level of effort you’re putting into your workout.
The Fit instructor’s focus on each person’s form and heart rate is the perfect finishing touch to an already beneficial experience.
The team at Yoga XTC really attempt to get to know their clients, and in a world where we all just feel like another person in a class, a bit of one on one is very welcome.
