The Loft Dance & Yoga Studio

Regardless of your ability, experience, gender or fitness level, The Loft can offer a movement class that will be right for you; whether it be classical ballet, contemporary dance, yoga, pilates or something else. First and foremost the studio believes that enjoying dance and movement shouldn’t be restrictive of age, and caters for those aged 18-70 years. Each session, while being fun, can also help develop balance, alignment, general fitness and flexibility. The studio philosophy is based on the belief that a regular movement practice can transform body, mind and spirit. The Loft supports the development of dance and movement in Geelong, and with years of experience, the team at the studio have done just that. The beautiful studio is located perfectly in Newtown between the Barwon River and the cafe precinct of Pakington Street. A secondary studio was also opened recently in Inverleigh. Classes are run weekly as well as special events throughout the year.

The Rock

Have you been down at the gym, staring blankly at the front of a treadmill or watching the weight stacks going up and down, wondering what you are doing this for? Now, more and more people are finding that their workouts don’t have to be like that. Climbing is quickly becoming people’s workout of choice.

As well as being a great experience that uses all the muscle groups in your body, it also engages your mind to workout the puzzle to get to the top.

The feeling that you get when you succeed on a climb that you have been struggling on is amazing, so much so that you don’t realize that you are getting a low impact full body workout. You can come in and test your mind and your body and find your limit, or just have a great session with your mates for fun!
