Move your body. Still your mind.

We offer dynamic and fluid barre, Pilates mat, Pilates reformer, yoga and yin classes.

At Bende, you will find a delicious blend of slow, conscious movement, fluid flow, mindfulness, toning exercises, and cardio intervals. A little of everything you need for mind-body wellness in one hour.

All of our classes are strong and energising with the exception of yin stretch, which is nurturing and restorative.


Emma Seibold is the founder and creator of both Barre Body, Australia’s first barre and yoga fusion technique, and Bende.

We believe in giving generously to causes that make a true difference in the world. We are long-time supporters of One Girl, proudly funding the education of 50 girls in Sierra Leone. In 2016-2017 we also made a $15,000 donation to the Syria appeal via UN Women.
