Fitness travel is thankfully a trend that’s here to stay – and in Sydney there’s no better season to try it than in summer. This harbour-side metropolis is up there with the best and most beautiful cities in the world, so I decided to explore all the things to do in Sydney that would let me work up a sweat and sight-see at the same time.
Yoga by the Sea
Like many locals and tourists, the first stop on my weekend of fitness was Bondi Beach. I saved the swim for later, and instead booked in for a spot of yoga. After a long week of training and working, I really needed a good, deep stretch – that’s where Yoga by the Sea comes in. Set on a platform atop the famous Bondi Icebergs complex, these yoga classes have one of the best views in the world. You stare straight out at a spectacular view of the ocean, and can take your relaxing breathing cues from the waves crashing into the rocks below. For an hour and a half you’re out in the elements, with the morning sun shining on your skin and the sea breeze doing its best to cool you down. Now, while I can sun worship with the best of them, a bit of slip, slop, slap is more than necessary if you’re going to give yoga outdoors a go. At this location, water is BYO – but bringing your own mat is optional.
