REVIEWS

"I have been doing the Flexi Barre class twice a week for 3 terms now and thoroughly enjoy it. My flexibility has increased, I am more toned and overall a lot stronger. Prior to starting this class I was goIng to the osteopath up to twice a month for my back & neck, I no longer need to go as the class has helped to develop my core strength and improve my posture. I couldn't recommend this class enough." 

- Rochelle J - FLEXI BARRE

"Love the variety between each class, it’s nice to do something different each week. It’s also nice to go to a class where there’s no pressure to push yourself harder than you should."

- Hayley T - FLEXI BUMP

"I think it's a really great environment and class for the kids of this age. They just beam at Renee the whole time, she has an amazing energy and rapport with children and it's so lovely to see them all learning and having fun."

- Zoe S - TWINKLETOES

I seriously love this class! Perfect balance of fun and also a great work-out! So nice to be dancing again regularly, absolutely thrilled to have this class available!

- Michaela M - ADULT JAZZ

"Your Twinkletoes dance class is awesome because it's not too serious which is important for preschoolers! You offer lots of variety in the routines but there's enough repetition so that the kids can get a kick out of remembering them. The kids have so much fun :-)"

- Georgia S - TWINKLETOES

"Renee is a really great teacher, she is very clear with her instructions and makes sure you know how to do everything in class and are comfortable. Renee pushes you to be your best, and even though you feel like you may die at the time, you really feel like you have accomplished something by the end of each class. Would recommend Renee’s classes to anyone and everyone :) "

- Kristyn M - FLEXI BARRE

I love the adult jazz dance class. I promote it to everyone that I can and can’t speak highly enough of Renee.

- Anna R - ADULT JAZZ

"I love the Mums and Bubs class. My daughter gets to play with the other babies while we get into shape! Renee is not only a great teacher but fantastic with a bunch of inquisitive babies!"

- Claire N - MUMS & BUBS

"I'm stoked to finally find a class that really excites me. I look forward to it each week, and want more! I love how Renee pushes me, but also keeps it light hearted and fun. Thank you!!."

- Liz H - FLEXI BARRE

I absolutely rate Renee and these classes! I tell anyone I can about them, trying to get them to come along. It is a great mix of yoga and pilates with a little ballet strengthening thrown in. Love it. Jess S - FLEXI BARRE

"I go into the Flexi bump class with so many aches and pains and come out feeling great. Each exercise can vary in difficulty to suit everyone in the class. Renee is so positive and really approachable. It has helped so much with all my pregnancy related aches and pains. Plus I can use the stretches I learn in class at home."
