We are so happy you are here!

Hello from co-founders Anna and Andrea

Anna and Andrea, two STOTT PILATES certified instructors embarked on their entrepreneurial venture in March 2019. Driven by a shared vision, they set out to create a haven where their clients would not only receive exceptional care but also experience a profound reconnection with their inner calm, fostering a sense of peace and empowerment in both mind and body.

Reflecting on their remarkable partnership, Andrea says, “How often do you have the privilege of building your dream business alongside your best friend? I count myself incredibly fortunate to have embarked on the Inna Essence journey with Anna. As loving mothers and soulmates, we have poured boundless love, life, and soul into creating the most exquisite sanctuary where our members can connect, feel safe, and engage in inclusive, nurturing movement and exercise.”

Anna’s passion shines through as she adds, “Inna Essence is our baby, a small business that we infuse with love, vitality, and spirit almost every minute of every day. We are in the heart of it all, teaching classes, engaging with our community in-studio and over the phone, going above and beyond to ensure that every class is an extraordinary experience.”

Thoughtfully designed with their members in mind, the studio includes a dedicated Reformer room with nine state-of-the-art machines. Additionally, a luminous and inviting space awaits, where Yoga, Mat Pilates, and Barre classes are held, accommodating up to 20 members per session. For those seeking a personalized training experience, a fully equipped private room is available, where highly qualified instructors provide one-on-one guidance.

Recognizing the importance of holistic well-being, Inna Essence offers two treatment rooms where a resident Osteopath and Mental Health Counselors practice their expertise, creating a comprehensive support network for every aspect of your wellness journey.

With over 50 weekly classes available, Inna Essence caters to all schedules, welcoming members seven days a week. The diverse class offerings include Reformer Pilates, Yoga, Mat Pilates, Dance Barre, Boxilates, Strength & Flow sessions, and even specialized Mums & Bubs classes, ensuring there is something for everyone.
Anna and Andrea have poured their hearts and souls into building an inviting, serene, and rejuvenating space that serves as a sanctuary for all.

A space where individuals of every background feel a warm embrace, free from judgment, and empowered to move and practice with inclusivity as their guiding principle.

This is our journey


Anna and Andrea are mums, business partners and best friends. They met in 2017 through a shared love of Pilates, and only a few months later, knew that they were soul sisters. Both Andrea and Anna had a dream of creating their own studio where Pilates, Yoga and wellness could come together; where all visitors feel like family.

In 2019 they co-founded Inna Essence, and started with just four reformers, establishing their business out of the function room at the Springwood Pumas AFL Clubhouse.

Their vision was to create a space where clients felt greatly cared for and would receive an experience that helped them to reconnect with their inner calm, to create a sense of peace and empower members to feel connected and healthier in their mind and body.

Emerging from the chaos of COVID lockdowns, these business partners knew that they had to take the next step and find a new physical location which they could custom-build and style; to truly reflect their vision. Their studio at 3245 Logan Road Underwood is their dream turned into a reality.

Every wall, window and piece of carpet was torn down and pulled up, and the Inna Essence studio was built, piece by piece. The studio space was designed by Andrea and Anna and drawn up by Andrea’s brother-in-law; the walls were painted by Anna’s dad, the veranda was gurnied by Andrea’s father-in-law; instructors came to clean windows and bring in plants.

This studio was built with love.

Andrea and Anna answer the phone, respond to emails, teach classes, and live and breathe every aspect of their studio.  They have a team of ten incredible Pilates Instructors and Yoga Teachers, and two businesses who provide specialty services in their treatment rooms.

You are important, respected, encouraged and loved here; we cannot wait to meet you.
