Luxurious but affordable Reformer Pilates classes surrounded by water views? Welcome to GROUNDUP Yarralumla.
As soon as you step into the stunning GROUNDUP Yarralumla, it’s all about you. From the light-filled spaces to the luxury change room and friendly staff, a genuine, meaningful feeling of wellness can be found in the boutique experience bringing Reformer Pilates to the sandy shores of Yarralumla Bay.
Now open to the public, GROUNDUP Yarralumla is the newest addition to the Viva Leisure family.
Like its sister in Belconnen, the newest studio provides a reshaped wellness experience that benefits the mind and body, the perfect balance to our hustle ‘n’ grind culture. And with stunning views of Lake Burley Griffin to go along with your workout, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the serenity of nature and discover your flow.
Featuring a light-filled studio that draws attention to the monochrome colour palette, herringbone timber flooring, and terracotta bricks, GROUNDUP Yarralumla has everything you need to make your experience feel as luxurious as possible—including a tea room that offers delicious T2 teas, like Turmeric Ginger Ninja (the perfect way to end a morning class before heading out for the day).
Bringing the discovery of wellness through motion to life, the classes are designed to build strong muscles and a strong mind—but if you think Pilates is easier than your usual gym routine, you have another thing coming.
With only Reformer Pilates classes on offer (similar to mat Pilates but with added resistance thanks to the springs of the Reformer machine) the dynamic full-body workout from GROUNDUP is a combination of strength, balance, and muscle endurance that will leave you challenged—and feeling amazing.
From Reformer 101 to a special mums and bubs class, the workout suits all fitness levels and the friendly instructors are there to correct techniques (with none of the judgment), while remaining positive and affirmative, creating a killer studio experience that will leave you wanting more.
With classes running from 6 am during the week, 7 am Saturdays and 8 am Sundays, there are plenty of options to choose from, perfect for kick-starting your day or for an after-work relaxation remedy.
Keen to sign up and enjoy the stunning lakeside views?
In lieu of paying $30 or more for a single Pilates class, the studio is offering 60+ classes for just $49.90 a week—and the best part is you will also have access to the Belconnen studio which offers a signature blend of Reformer and mat Pilates as well as yoga and barre. But don’t worry, if you still love your gym or HIIT workouts you can even add GROUNDUP to your existing Club Lime or HIIT Republic membership so you have every workout at your fingertips.
It’s the perfect way to chill out, take a weight off and sweat your stress away, as you build yourself from the ground up.
