The Medibank Feel Good Program is returning to South Bank Parklands and the City’s Queen’s Park from 28 September to 28 November, to provide the Brisbane community with free fitness classes from morning to the evening.

Last series the program saw over 6,000 attendees take part in the much- loved program and in light of this popularity and the Queensland Government’s COVID-Safe Events Framework, several COVID-Safe measures will be in place throughout the program, including a yoga mat giveaway and a free pre-registration process. Pre-registrations have already reached capacity for South Bank’s inaugural Yoga class of the season, at 130 participants.

A reflection of the community’s steadfast commitment to remaining active and re-connecting with nature through the City’s most iconic parklands, proving beneficial for both physical and mental health. In addition to Yoga, participants are welcome to take part in Tai chi, Zumba, Pilates, and Bootcamp, as well as Barre for core strength, Mums & Bubs and an Aqua class held in South Bank’s Boat Pool.

Latin Fitness will be added to the South Bank program on Tuesday evenings, complementing the celebrated and growing dance-focused line-up of Bollywood and Ballroom Dancing. Tarcisio Teatini-Climaco, Founding Director of Riorhythmics and Latin Fitness Instructor says, “Latin fitness encourages a fun and active lifestyle, while immersing in other cultures. And staying active brings people happiness and energy- and those things are contagious and powerful in bringing people together.”

All classes are run by qualified instructors from Goodlife Health Clubs or certified dance and Yoga trainers, delivering workouts designed to suit all preferences and fitness levels, ranging from low impact to high intensity. Participants are advised to bring a water bottle and towel to each class. The yoga mat giveaway will take place in the initial two weeks of the program or unless allocation is exhausted prior, at Yoga, Pilates, Barre as well as Mums & Bubs classes. Following this attendees will be required to bring their own mats.
