Just like the heart of the CBD that surrounds us, the vibe at Flinders Lane is vibrant and energetic, while providing a welcomed sanctuary from the hustle.
A story of our studio:
Our studio has been architecturally designed from top to toe by the amazing Mihaly Slocombe Architects, with a deep focus on creating the most beautiful, sensory experience for your Barre Body class. We stripped back the old carpet, partition walls and office ceiling to reveal a raw shell, filled with personality. Into this space we added surfaces and materials rich in detail and texture. Timber, linen and brass are the material expression of the studio. The concrete floor ws ground back and polished to a high lustre. Around the walls, a series of linen curtains soften and shape the space. And the ceiling is a beautiful array of Australian hardwood dowels, recalling the form and texture of the barre. A true expression of both Melbourne’s character and the Barre Body brand, we know you’re going to love this natural beauty.
What to expect:
Our unique studio is full of a fabulous mix of professionals who work in the CBD, as well as visitors to Melbourne (keen to try their hand at Barre Body!). And we’re so pleased that our studio makes for the perfect place for mingling and relaxing for workers and travellers alike. With a large reception and waiting area full of tea, retail shopping experiences and goodies, it’s a sanctuary in the heart of the hustle and bustle.
Where to head after class:
Just two blocks east of the studio is Tom Thumb, the tiniest little coffee shop that sells expertly brewed coffee and an impressive range of pastries (many being gluten free – yay). We’re also fond of a little stroll through Parliament Gardens, which is a gorgeous spot to eat your lunch and to admire the adorable baby ducks in the springtime. And an honourable mention goes to The Organic Food and Wine Store for our absolute favourite lunch options.
If Flinders Lane were a girl, she’d be:
Angelina Jolie. Modern, engaging, gorgeous and ever-so-slightly mysterious.
Barre Body Flinders Lane is located on level 6 (the penthouse) at 175 Flinders Lane, between Russell & Swanston streets. The nearest train stations are Parliament (8 minute walk) and Flinders Street (3 minute walk). Most parking nearby is 1 hour so we don’t mind if you come in right on the class start time and leave a few minutes early if you need to. All that we ask is that you either stay for savasana (rest at the end of the class) or sneak out quietly before savasana begins.
