Spring in Melbourne has a little bit of explaining to do; one minute its tepid, the next, you're trembling. Never fear, there is now a super-fab fitness option to keep your temps perfected – and your tummy toned – simultaneously.
One Hot Pilates is brought to you by the masterminds (and bodies) behind One Hot Yoga, one of Melbourne's best yoga studios. The modern and contemporary double-storey hot yoga studio combines the core teachings of yoga within a truly architectural space.
Opening to the public this Friday, October 17th, One Hot Pilates offers either the perfect solo option for pilates fans, or the best way for hot yoga fans to expand their practice. If you want to combine both practices, the studio is offering a One Hot Everything membership so that you can pick and choose as your mood takes you, With Hot Mat Pilates and Reformer options available, there is surely something to get your heart racing and your brow beading.
Why One? Well, if this isn't evidence enough that they are one step ahead of the hot yoga and pilates game, then the Robert Mills Architects and interior designed space surely is. Parked behind the Como Centre in South Yarra, the glass and concrete symphony is a true revelation for Melbourne pilates fans wishing to bolster their visual surrounds as well as their spiritual ones when working out. There's no dank carpet or purple drapery in sight; instead, heavy linen drapes and shag pile rugs are the only accessories within this open, breathable space.
For anyone who has visited One Hot Yoga, simply walking through the door of this incredible and enveloping space makes the experience of a class even more inspired and inspiring. So add to that the option of a One Hot Pilates class, and you're staring down the barrel of a truly awesome awakening of mind, body and spirit this spring.
With Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga and now Hot Pilates on the menu, the studio ethos of accessible and evidence-based results still rings through within the pilates side of the story, with an emphasis on core strength and a unifying practice of body and mind. There is a freedom to the structure of practice within 'One', so if Drill Sergeant-style teaching is your want, you best move along. Here, there is a framework to the class – both in pilates and yoga – combined with an unspoken invitation for you to work at your own pace, with a positive experience nurtured by practitioners, just as much as positive results are by the clientele.
