Yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi & Qigong are all low impact, highly effective, and suitable for any body and everybody, from professional athletes to out-of-shape couch potatoes starting to move again.
All three practices are wonderfully engaging and extraordinarily beneficial ways to keep on the move.
Devote yourself to one practice or enjoy the variety of all three.
All classes and courses are free for Members; see Memberships for detail.
Shared benefits of Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and Qigong
The greatest benefit is that after each class we immediately feel more serene, energetic, and happier. It’s this experience which draws us back, again and again, resulting in us incorporating these practices into our daily and weekly routines.
Three profoundly different experiences
The art of waking up
You don’t need a flexible body to do yoga; all you need is a flexible mind.
At Be Well, we provide a modern form of Hatha yoga: a posture-based physical fitness, stress-relief and relaxation technique in which the yoga teacher guides the class through a series of asanas (postures), with a strong focus on breathing and an emphasis on meditation.
Our fully trained and experienced yoga instructors offer a wide range of different classes, ranging from gentle and mellow through to intense and dynamic. Chair Yoga is available for those with limited mobility, and Yoga for Beginners courses are conducted regularly.
The ‘one-and-done’ workout
Our fully trained and experienced Pliates practitioners conduct small group classes (maximum 5 Members) tailored to the needs of each participant.
Meditation in motion
We are privileged to have secured the services of Senior Master Chin Min, who has trained at the renowned Chin Woo Martial Arts School and the Shanghai Institute of Sports. A co-founder of the Celestial Tai Chi College in Melbourne, Senior Master Chin has taught many thousands of people the art, wisdom and benefits of Tai Chi & Qi Gong.
Senior Master Chin conducts regular classes throughout the year in our yoga studio.
Regular exercise brings remarkable changes to your body, your metabolism, your heart, and your spirits.
Exercise has a unique capacity to exhilarate and relax, to stimulate and calm, to counter depression and dissipate stress. It reduces stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, while increasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators.
As your waistline shrinks and your strength and stamina increase, your self-image will improve. You’ll earn a sense of mastery and control, of pride and self-confidence. Your renewed vigour and energy will help you succeed in life, and the discipline of regular exercise will help you achieve other important lifestyle goals.
Exercise is play: when we are busy moving, our minds are distracted from the demands and worries of daily life, and will be free to think creatively.
Play regularly and often, and enjoy the profound benefits that come to you, naturally.
