Wellness Wednesdays

Lunch & Learn – Sleep & Recovery Workshop
Casselden Terrace, Level 5 Casselden
12:00pm to 12:45am, 19/06/2019

Did you know that the effect of having less than 6 hours of sleep in a night is likened by scientists to being drunk the next day? 

We can be so motivated, wanting to DO more, BE more, achieve MORE… but in wanting all this we’re actually ‘unsleeping’ ourselves into the very opposite of peak performance. The very opposite of what we’re hoping to achieve.

This is a MasterClass style workshop designed to unveil your most productive, energised and inspired self in all facets of your life, and along with our 5-minute mindfulness tools, we’ll be sharing our favourite and easily actionable (and scientifically supported) techniques to get you there.

Registration for this event is a must, please register here.

Please Note: Lunch will not be provided.

Music meditation is an active meditation process that works with the power of sounds and the energy of creation.

On opening ourselves up to music meditation, we craft the co-creative space within us, increasing our awareness, awakening our potential and quietening the mind from our busy lives.

Please note – this music meditation session will be guided.

Mat Pilates

Genesis Fitness Studio, Level 2, 50 Lonsdale Street,
11:00am to 11:30am
Each Wednesday 20/06/2019 – 31/07/2019

The goal of a Mat Pilates class is to strengthen the body’s “powerhouse,” a Pilates term that refers to your abdominals, lower back muscles, pelvic floor, hips and glutes.
Through a series of floor exercises using resistance bands and rings, the workout helps build, sculpt and tone these muscles. Pilates can aid in flexibility and improving posture, as stretching your body is a vital part of this class. While low-impact, Pilates burns fat during and after class, as your muscles continue to shed calories long after class ends.

Mat Pilates is an effective, precise set of exercises. It’s accessible to everyone at any level of fitness and provides countless benefits.
