Free Communal Bathing Sessions at Inner Studio
These spa sessions are for all the early risers out there seeking an alternative way to start the day.

Melbourne spas can be spenny. So much so that this sublime form of self-care just isn't accessible to many of us who are operating on a budget. Here to change that is Collingwood's Inner Studio. The wellness centre has teamed up with BAINA to run free communal bathing sessions every Thursday morning in February, onsen-style.
From 7–8.30am each Thursday, those seeking an alternative way to start the day can head to the calming leafy space and try Inner Studio's signature Awaken Class.
It kicks off with 20 minutes of deep breathwork (aimed to recentre and refocus the mind) and is followed by a quick three-minute cold pool plunge (which they say builds resilience in both mind and body). Concrete Playground has a few converts who swear by the ritual of being submerged into cold water as the best way to start the day.
This guided part of the bathing session is then followed by an hour of free time in the Collingwood spa. Warm back up in the sauna and hot pool and grab some tea or coffee in the lounge. If you consider yourself a morning person, this free spa experience will be hard to pass on.
To nab one of the complimentary bathing sessions at Inner Studio, head to the spa's website and use the code 'SOAK' when booking.
