Strength Development and Shapes

Shapes-this is a blend of core training movements from different methodologies like Pilates, barre and power yoga. This new workout sits in our suite of core training offerings. Pilates is our class to train accuracy and fundamental movements, Shapes take this a step further and will give your booty a burn unlike anything you have ever experienced. Then our Core classes train your core for athletic patterning and performance. Shapes has a fresh soundtrack and we have some fresh new faces delivering this for you to enjoy.

Strength Development-this takes the concept of a gym floor workout and brings it into the group fit studio. This is a structured series of workouts that is designed to get you really strong, really fast. Unlike Bodypump, you can move at a tempo that suits you (so not necessarily on the beat of the music) enabling you to bring your focus to your form.

Bodypump is our strength class focusing on muscular endurance, Grit Strength is our strength class that focuses on power and cardiovascular training. Strength Development is different from both of these offerings with lower repetitions enabling you to lift heavier weights and structured with unique focuses within every workout. There are twelve workouts in the series but you can dip in and out however it suits you. Each workout will run for two weeks so you can really maximise your understanding of it before we move on.

  • The empowering cardio workout where you are totally unleashed. This fiercely energetic hour-long programme is inspired by martial arts and draws from a wide array of disciplines such as karate, boxing, taekwondo, tai chi and muay Thai. Powered by great music and strong instructors, you’ll strike, punch and kick your way through calories to superior cardio fitness.

    These classes are active and sometimes challenging. Poses flow from one posture to the next but at a faster pace than our slow flow class. Both a yoga experience and a workout.


    A body conditioning routine that builds flexibility, strength, endurance and coordination without adding muscle bulk. Pilates emphasises the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement. Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise for overall conditioning, toning and relaxation.


    Our Evolve class is a step up from our standard Pilates class. We lift the level a little to challenge people who are looking for that bit extra. However, our instructor teaches to whoever is in the room so movements can be modified if needed. This class is not suitable for those who are injured so, for back injuries and similar conditions, we recommend attending the standard Pilates class where the movements are more fundamental. A reasonable base fitness is ideal.


    This class flows from one posture to the next, but at a slow pace with plenty of time and space to get in and out of postures.


    An athletic stretching class. Simple positions that target the most overused muscles in the body.


    This class will reduce tightness and stress, and increase mobility and flexibility. It's a slow paced style of yoga with poses held for longer to allow the body to relax into each position.


    Our yoga teachers put together a sequence of yoga poses that focus on stretching and relaxing. They might use props and the class will vary with the instructor.


    This class adds water to your workout and is suitable for any level of fitness. It's a great way to improve aerobic fitness, develop your strength and burn fat without the impact, making it easier on muscles and joints.

New sign-in process

You may have noticed that there's a new sign-in process to group fitness classes. Here's a brief rundown of what you need to do before class:

  • Scan in at reception and grab a tag
    • The tags will be separated by bookings and walk-ins. If you've booked online there will be a tag in the bookings section for you
  • Take your tag to the class and set up your space
  • The instructor will walk around and collect your tags

Why the new process? We find that it's difficult to track attendance as some people might not have the time to sign-in to class and instructors are also too busy to head count before class. This gives us an easy way to measure class attendance. 

A stretch class with live music!

Yoga Stretch with live music is back! On Saturday 22 June from 4.00pm, join us at Lake Hayes Pavilion as we run a special stretch class accompanied by local pianist, Kinga Krupa.

This special class will be $25 per person. Please book a spot at reception and payment will be done on the day by cash or direct crediting Happiness House.
