Hula Hoop and Hoop Dance
Based in Nth Fitzroy, this hula hoop class is more like a fun night out than a fitness class. Al teachers are performers and will take you from beginner to pro levels. Don't be fooled by the floaty title, this class is a serious workout for your abs!
3. Yoga for Rockers
Amazing! This class follows the 'Vinyasa flow' style of yoga however is set to a mixtape of epic rock ballads. Great for those who want to gain the benefits of yoga, but without the crystals and patchouli.Held at 307 Sydney Rd, Brunswick (near the corner od Dawson St), this class is part of the Alternative Women's Fitness program.
Miss Smash Dance
Also a part of Alternative Women's Fitness, Miss Smash Dance is a melting pot of dancestyles and music. The trainer, Sarah, has spent living and training in Africa, New York and Cuba – so expect all that mixed up with some garage/punk/rock tunes. This is a really fun class that gets you moving and shaking. You don't even have time to think about what you might look like, you'll be too busy loving the class!
