Back at Base
After five years of growing Body Mind Sol and expanding the team, the last 6 months have seen us regroup and refocus. Like most beginnings, it has been a bit painful – we let go of our growing team as founder Sol Walkling brought home more than she’d bargained for from her advanced teacher training in Costa Rica and Guatemala. While she thoroughly enjoyed teaching yoga anatomy in Costa Rica, journeying in the jungle on New Year’s Eve and coming back to a warm welcome by faithful private clients, the change came with a hard-to-shake parasite infection and resulting health problems.
We’ve now joined forces with Roman Pilates who offer state of the art studio locations in Randwick and Edgecliff. This etaming up has expanded the private session scope to encompass cardiovascular training on the incline trainer as well as using vibration machines, freeform boards, climbing walls and more. It’s opened up a world of play to our existing clients who have commented they love the new variety and the ability to mix it up even more, complementing their Pilates reformer and yoga therapy work. We are now setting specific targets for clients on a quarterly basis where appropriate.
Sol also received a warm welcome back by the NRL referees at ANZ Stadium and clients at the Sydney Football Stadium as well as a promising start to new Pilates with props classes at the Royal Motor Yacht Club’s stunning facilities in Point Piper. She is also working with individual yoga/Pilates/PT clients at the club’s gym.
When not dashing between Eastern Suburb locations, shooting movement videos or writing, Sol has been enjoying visits to Whale Beach for private sessions and resting in her favourite Avalon cafe to plan an upcoming event in Sydney.

Tuesday 7pm Yin Yoga at Roman Pilates Randwick
Thursday 6.30pm Reformer Pilates at Roman Pilates Randwick
Saturday 1pm Yoga Flow for Beginners at Roman Pilates Randwick
