The BodyMindLife Story

BodyMind Life, established in 2002 by founder Philip Goodwin, was a pioneering brand in the Australian yoga, Pilates, and wellness space. The brand opened the first studio in Australia dedicated wholly to Vinyasa Yoga, and has since expanded to offer a diverse range of services to support a life of wellness. With a focus on empowering transformation through mindful movement, the brand has built a loyal following and strong community.

Presently, BodyMind Life operates four locations in Surry Hills, Kirrawee, Byron Bay, and Bondi Beach. As a veteran of Australian Yoga, BodyMind Life has hosted an impressive lineup of local and international teachers over the years and will continue to do so moving forward.

The Highlights

The studio was fresh and provided a nice environment to practice. The equipment was in good condition and worked as expected.

What Our Evaluator Had To Say

“The coach spoke to me before the class to find out if I was new to Pilates, which help me feel assured and prepared.”

“The studio was well-lit and spacious."

What to Expect From A BodyMindLife Session

BodyMindLife offers a wide range of yoga and Pilates classes. Reformer Pilates sessions range from the more intense Dynamic class designed for advanced clients to a Mums and Bubs class programmed to help rebuild strength and flexibility post-partum.

Yoga at BodyMind Life involves classes such as a relaxing Chill Flow class to a more challenging heated Open class, with the room at 30°c.

The brand was born from “a desire to empower transformation through education” and was reportedly the first Australian Yoga Studio to fully dedicate its yoga offerings to Vinyasa.

The Reception Service

Our pre-visit calls to the branch went unanswered. On arrival, registration was quick with an orientation of the studio given. Overall, interactions were more transactional than warm.

The Class Experience

BodyMind Life Surry Hills received a Rated score for the Class Experience.

Our coach was confident and communicated the structure of the class well. More connection and interaction with us as first-time visitors would have helped improve the experience.

The Equipment And Studio

The equipment was of high quality, with some wear and tear noted. The studio lacked strong branding elements but did provide a fresh environment for the class and was well-lit.

The Facilities And Public Areas

Workout and shower towels were not provided. Lockers were provided with key locks. Free water refill stations were available.

The club had a good range of facilities, including multiple showers, a changing room and toilets. There were numerous branded touches throughout the public areas and there were enough benches around the studio so that everyone had a place to sit.

Digital And Technology

The website was designed professionally and very easy to navigate. The aesthetic of the club’s social media pages was in line with the brand and also represented the client experience well.
