Postcoder has designed the ultimate day of (healthy) indulgence for the fit folk of Elsternwick.
Put on your trainers and grab a towel. Don’t forget to pack a banana to keep you on the go!
6am – Yoga
5 Horne Street, Elsternwick 3185 | (03) 9532 7418
For the early risers amongst us, there’s nothing like a bit of bend and stretch to get the day started right. And who better to instruct you than the enlightened team at Yoga Tree! This established yoga studio is the perfect place to get your mind, body and spirit on the same page. You’ll find everything from Bikram Focus and Power Flow classes to Yin Yoga and even a sprinkling of Pilates on the timetable.
7:30 – Banana o’clock!
Elsternwick Station Reserve, Riddell Parade, Elsternwick 3185
Time to refuel! Take a short stroll up Glen Huntly Road to Elsternwick Station Reserve for some mindful banana eating under a tree.
9:30 – Cardio Hit
Level 2/207 Glen Huntly Road, Elsternwick 3185 | (03) 9528 1024
Slept in and missed the yoga class? Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of heart- starting fun to be had at 6 Degrees South Health and Fitness! Rock up ready to sweat it out at one of the intense group training sessions (Butts & Guts, anyone?) or set your own pace on the treadmill.
12pm – Brunch/Lunch
211 Glen Huntly Road, Elsternwick 3185 |(03) 9533 0765
Boasting an angelic range of all-natural, organic, gluten-free, vegan and GMO-free prods, your halo will be well in place after a visit to Green Remedy Bar. Take your pick from a delicious range of raw, cold-pressed juices, organic salads, acai bowls and smoothies to top up your energy levels fast.
1pm – Get a healthy glow!
211 Glen Huntly Road, Elsternwick 3185 | (03) 9533 0765
If all that running around has you looking a bit disheveled, simply pop next door to Remedy Bar for a top-to- toe pampering that will have you looking as good as you feel. This gorgeous bunch does everything from organic spray tans to manicures, pedicures, facials and hair packages!
3pm – Restock on supplies
358 Glen Huntly Road, Elsternwick 3185 | (03) 9523 7824
Stocked to the brim with organic groceries, supplements, skin care and health products Glo Health is a must-visit for the health-conscious crowd. Don’t forget to grab one of their delicious pre-made dinners to make the evening easy (FYI – the homemade quiches are delish!).
4pm – Afternoon tea
1C Staniland Grove, Elsternwick 3185 | (03) 9972 9592
For a sweet treat that won’t undo all your hard work at the gym, stop by Cocomama’s. Everything here is raw and organic and so, so good. You will struggle to decide between the raw ‘donut’ range and the incredible slices (try the ‘Snickers Bar’ or Mint slice to take your taste buds on an unforgettable trip to paradise). If you can’t decide there’s always the option to take away that which you can’t leave behind!
5pm – Home
Pop your Glo Health quiche in the oven and make your way to the couch for some well-deserved R&R – it’s been a big day!
