Meet Bodhi & Ride: a newly opened boutique studio that’s bringing the New York wellness scene to the streets of Port Melbourne.

Inspired by cult fitness trends in the United States including Soul Cycle and drop-in meditation, Bodhi & Ride is a holistic health space offering a complete body and mind workout under one roof.

“We’ve created the perfect environment to help people develop a strong body, sharp mind and discover new levels of health and vitality with a range of wellness and fitness classes and times to meet busy schedules,” says owner, Michaela Fellner.

The first of its kind, Bodhi & Ride consists of three studios – the Yoga Loft, the Spin Chamber and the Unplug Pod – in one to provide something for everyone based on their fitness and wellness regime and daily needs.

Smash through an exhilarating beat-based and high intensity spin session complete with dance moves and hand weights; strengthen, lengthen and tone with a sound-tracked flow yoga class; or unplug with a guided meditation session.

At Bodhi & Ride, every class is unique, with Fellner describing the cycling as a spin on the traditional. “[It is] an intensive full-body workout that integrates high-energy interval and endurance bike work and handweights. Not only have we got a team of experienced and passionate ride instructors to get your ass into gear,” she says, “but we have worked with renowned DJs to create playlists that motivate you through the class.”

Workouts aside, Bodhi & Ride includes a members lounge equipped with complimentary wifi and artisan tea, as well as a Refuel Station, which is stocked with superfood smoothies and healthy treats from the Lains & Co. Facilities come with high-end grooming and skincare products, fresh towels and all the mod cons, further adding to the luxurious, boutique feel.
