Get your fix of all things fitness at this Glebe studio
Quro Health Studios in Glebe is a fitness fanatic’s paradise. Offering yoga and hot yoga, reformer and clinical pilates, Zumba, Kung Fu and spin classes alongside rehabilitation programs, the studio could easily be mistaken for a major gym complex. In reality, it’s a small space that provides specialised experiences for locals. The staff are friendly, there’s soothing music that echoes throughout the studio, and in the evening candles create a calming atmosphere.
On our visit, we tried an hour-long Hot Yoga class. At lunchtime in the middle of the week, there were only three people in the class so it was an intimate and personalised experience. We each receive plenty of one-on-one time with the instructor, who doesn’t hesitate to twist our bodies into correct alignment or push us into deeper stretches. It’s an approach that can feel slightly uncomfortable at first, but the benefits soon become clear as we find ourselves in poses we could have never otherwise achieved.
The room is heated to around 30 degrees, with the premise that we are not solely relying on the room’s temperature, but also creating heat through the quick flow of Vinyasa movements. We repeat the same sequence a number of times at increasing paces, so that when it comes time to relax in Savasana, we feel we’ve earnt it.
