Local businesswomen, Anna Grant and Andrea Creighton, are excited to meet you, hear about you, hold space for you, and provide a sanctuary where you can move with purpose, strength, calm and focus.
Anna and Andrea, both STOTT PILATES certified instructors, started their business in March 2019 out of the function room at the Springwood Pumas AFL Club. 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, create a sense of peace and empower members to feel connected and healthier in their mind and body.
Andrea has said, “How often do you get to create your dream business with your best friend? I cannot believe how fortunate I am to have created Inna Essence with Anna. We are loving mums and best friends, and we have had the opportunity to create the most beautiful sanctuary for our members to connect, feel safe in, move and exercise in an inclusive, nourishing way.”
Due to the amazing support of the local community, their business has thrived and outgrown the function room, so much so that they have needed to find a new space. Wanting to stay close by and connected to their community, moving to the South City complex just around the corner in July 2021, was a perfect fit for both the studio and their beloved clients.
Anna continues, “Inna Essence is our baby; our small business which we breath love, life and soul into nearly every minute of every day. We are in the heart of it; teaching classes, chatting with our community in-studio and over the phone, doing everything we can to make every class an amazing experience.”
Designed with their members in mind, the new studio has a dedicated Pilates Reformer room with 8 machines, as well as a beautiful light-filled Yoga, Mat Pilates and Barre room that will host up to 20 members per class.
There is a fully equipped private room for anyone looking for a one-on-one training experience at the studio with one of our highly qualified instructors.
Additionally, to provide a fully holistic support network, Inna Essence offers two treatment rooms where their resident Osteopath and Mental Health Counsellors practice from.
Inna Essence offers over 50 classes each week, open 7 days, with classes including Reformer, Yoga, Mat Pilates, Dance Barre, Boxilates, Strength & Flow sessions and Mums & Bubs classes.
Anna and Andrea have put their hearts and souls into creating an inviting, tranquil and relaxing custom space that will be a sanctuary for all. A place where everyone feels welcome, where they can move and practice in a space with inclusivity and no judgement.
They cannot wait to share it with you.
Inna Essence is a custom-designed and lovingly built studio. Anna and Andrea carefully considered and selected every element you see when you arrive.
Reception has been designed to feel like your lounge room, a place where you can relax, take in a deep breath, and forget about everything. Friends sit and chat together before and after class, read, enjoy a coffee, or just have a quiet moment to catch their breath.
Studio 1 is a beautiful light-filled studio, featuring floor to ceiling windows, sheer curtains, and the most beautiful morning sunshine. We have a gorgeous 9 metre long ballet barre, hand-crafted yoga table made from reclaimed timber, and custom-built shelves containing all our props for Yoga, Mat Pilates and Barre classes.
Studio 2 is the home of our 8 Reformer machines. We love our Merrithew SPX and Pioneer reformers; with Anna’s dad Ralph servicing and cleaning them every week so they work perfectly for every class. Each Reformer has its own box, maple pole and jumpboard so we can offer variety and modifications for every session.
Down the hallway you will find two treatment rooms; these are the home for our resident Osteopath and Mental Health Counsellors. At the far end, is our Private Pilates room; with quite possibly the prettiest light in the entire studio! Anna and Andrea have set up this room with a Reformer, Stability Chair, Ladder Barrel and half-trapeze with a huge variety of props and tools to help rehabilitate and challenge our private clients.
