Bodhi meets Bond: Rave, ride and revitalise
High intensity spin classes, electric yin, deep house yoga and pressed juices served in martini glasses – Wellness Clubbing is the latest fitness trend to hit Melbourne and it is popping-up exclusively at the iconic nightlife hotspot, Bond Melbourne.
Brought to life by Bodhi & Ride, one of the newest fitness and wellness kids on the block – Wellness Clubbing will change the way people exercise and make it even more fun in the process.
Set amongst the luxe gold and velvet backdrop of Bond Melbourne and with a variety of classes on offer, this is one exercise session you won’t want to miss.
Kicking off with Bodhi & Ride’s signature Ride class complete with handweights, an exhilarating light show and set to the latest DJ remixed tunes, the instructor will have you hitting goals before you’ve even thought about lunch.
Heading into the afternoon, the space is heated and reset for the Electric Yin and Bodhi Flow Yoga classes that will be set to deep house sounds, designed specifically to leave you feeling refreshed and zen.
At the conclusion of each class, the Bodhi & Ride team hosts a well-deserved after-party complete with Kombucha, protein balls and clean eats provided by Matcha Maiden, Lains & Co, as well as Pressed Juices and other health brands from across town.
Keeping the positive vibes flowing throughout the day is one of Bond’s resident DJs, who mixes chilled beats and smooth tunes.
The Wellness Clubbing venture came to fruition when Bodhi & Ride owner Michaela Fellner decided she wanted to expand her vision and bring the studio into the city.
“Our studio is located in Port Melbourne and I wanted to give those in the city a chance to experience all that we have to offer in a really luxe environment. We are taking health and wellness to the next level by creating an immersive experience with a strong focus on music and choreography, which is known to enhance enjoyment and your mood,” she said. “City workers are caught in the hustle and bustle for up to 10 hours a day and I wanted to offer them the chance just to stop, take care of and treat themselves. We have designed the classes so guests can be in and out within an hour if they need to be back at work – it’s just like an express workout.”
