Test-drive: Bungee Core Fitness

Looking for a fat-burning, body-sculpting activity that’ll keep you coming back? South Australian Style’s resident fitness guru, Emily Hartley, test drives a fun new way to stay fit. Introducing Bungee Core Fitness.

What is a bungee workout?

Bungee Core Fitness is the first bungee workout studio in South Australia. It’s a high intensity group class during which a bungee cord is attached to your waist, allowing you to move in ways and reach heights you never thought possible. Each class contains a series of core, resistance, flexibility and cardiovascular exercises.

What to expect

At the beginning of the class, everyone is fitted with a harness – you want to get this part right to ensure a safe and comfortable bungee experience. Once fitted, you then progress to a warm-up. This includes a series of stretches, strength and a range of motion exercises, which is a great way to adjust and familiarise yourself with the variety of different movements, shapes and motions your body will 
make. Now comes the fun part – bungee time! You are connected to the bungee, an extra strong springy cord, by your harness which is perfectly adjusted to your height and body weight for maximal bounciness.

Who’s it for?

This class is designed for anyone from beginner to advanced. Being a beginner, we started with the basics and slowly built up, layer by layer, from star jumps to push-ups to flying tuck jumps until eventually nailing upside-down handstands! As the class progresses you start to build up confidence and get a little more adventurous with 
each bounce. 

What we loved

The best thing about this class is that you’re so focused on bouncing around, moving your body in different ways (even back-to-front and upside down) that by the time you’re finished you’re red-faced, a little sweaty and left wondering where the time went!

Bungee Core Fitness also offers 1:1 PT, Boxing, HIIT and Functional Fitness classes if you’re after an 
extra burn in your week’s workout. Plus they also offer self-defence classes for kids, so there really is no excuse not to get the whole family involved.

How much does it cost?

$25 per casual class or take advantage of exclusive offers with a Bungee Core Fitness membership.

Will we be back?

Absolutely, just give me a moment for my muscles to recover! This is a unique style of fitness to add into your weekly routine or even as a fun activity shared with friends or work colleagues.

Perfectly Aligned

A passionate group of health and beauty experts have joined forces to open a new clinic on Unley Road that offers clients a more discrete, personal service.


The decision for four like-minded female professionals to come together in a luxe communal space was the brainchild of cosmetic injector Linda Schreck. 

Linda began her career almost 40 years ago as an operating room nurse, working alongside plastic and reconstructive surgeons, she’s dedicated the last 20 to cosmetic injecting. She is now able to use her knowledge and understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the face to better treat her patients, avoiding the over-done look that is so prevalent in the booming anti-ageing field. 

Her vast experience also means she’s instinctively aware of the various needs and desires of her expansive client base, and the ability to offer a more discrete, personal service was something she wanted to provide. This modern, calming space, flooded with natural light (and with ample parking!) was the ideal solution. “I had worked in several busy clinics, but this is something unique,” she says. 

The integration of three other like-businesses, all in the health and beauty space, was a logical next step. “A big advantage for me and my clients is that my prescribing doctor, Dr Susan Lloyd, also an experienced cosmetic injector and is under the same roof – in fact, she’s in the office next door. We work side-by-side, not interstate like lots of other clinics,” she says.


“I guess I always knew my place was somewhere in the ‘health field’,” says hypno-psychotherapist Anna. “I was the one you could count on and the best friend to talk to!”

From here there was a formal education in medical studies and a degree in public health (in Anna’s home-country of Poland) and then further studies in psychotherapy and counselling in hypnosis back in Australia. But it wasn’t until years spent at home with her children that she discovered her passion for mental health. “I spent much time digging into research to learn more about the connections between mind and body. To start with, I wanted to know more about children’s brain development and behaviour, you know, just for myself and to ‘be a good mum’, but once I started, I couldn’t stop expanding to all age groups. Satisfaction came only when my husband, who’s a GP, showed me how he uses hypno-psychotherapy in his practice.”

A hypno-psychotherapist is a person who is trained in both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy is probably the more common term, although hypnotherapists deal with simpler issues such as habits, phobias and pain but are not generally trained in psychotherapeutic techniques. Hypno-psychotherapists can use both hypnotic and psychotherapeutic interventions as part of therapy sessions to get to the core of more complex issues and examine problems that are likely more deep-rooted. “Hypno-psychotherapists generally use consistently structured sessions tailored to the needs of the client,” says Anna, “as well as focusing on the problems with established protocols for treatments. Every step of the session 
is there for a reason and words matter a lot.”

Feeling safe is also important, and Anna’s new space offers a warm, welcoming environment. “The majority of my clients are troubled with serious trauma and I believe having a warm, safe space and atmosphere is crucial to them being able to open up and talk about sometimes very difficult memories and emotions.”


“My work is about enhancing individual and natural beauty,” says brow expert Anita Peterson, “and I get to watch my clients’ reaction to the aesthetic transformation. It’s all about self-belief and self-love, it’s empowering and it’s the greatest reward.”

Anita’s work is unique, using only tweezers and scissors she adopts a hair-by-hair approach to preserve the natural and correct shape of the brows, while refining them to enhance facial structure or to correct asymmetry. “Every client receives a personalised service, there is no one-size-fits-all for brows and 
I also like to take into account each client’s aesthetic and their preferred style.”

It’s this considered, individualised service 
that keeps clients coming back, and her ability to revive brows that have been over-plucked, working with them to bring their brows back. “My ultimate goal is to ensure every client leaves with an understanding of how their brow shape impacts on their facial structure, and the steps we’ll be taking to achieve and maintain a better shape. I want them to leave feeling their best, and excited about the future of their brows.”


“I’ve been a GP for 14 years and started cosmetic injections in 2015,” explains Dr Lloyd. “I had been looking to increase my time in this area, and then this opportunity came up to join a fabulous group of women, I couldn’t say no! The location is perfect, the consulting rooms are beautiful and private, and the girls are delightful to work alongside.”

This new business venture also gives Dr Lloyd the opportunity to make a significant difference in people’s lives – she’s been doing this as a health professional for years, but now, thanks to this coming together of professional women and their complimentary skill sets, she’s also able to make a difference to the confidence of her clients too. 

“I don’t agree with looking ‘perfect’, there’s no such thing,” she says, “we are all beautiful in our own way. Not everyone can look like a Kardashian, and nor should they want to.” Dr Lloyd’s goal for her clients is rather to help them look “fresher and a little less tired” so that they walk away with a new-found vigour. “Knowing that they leave feeling more confident and happier after seeing me is what it is all about. I love getting my patients back two weeks after treatment and showing them the before and after photos, their smiles say it all!”


This female-led, restorative and communal space has everything under one roof.

Different Strokes – The Permanent Make-up Boom

The rise of social media has seen the popularity of permanent make-up boom. From lip tattoos to eyeliner and of course eyebrows, there is a brush stroke for them all. Alexia Rocha from Alexia Makeup . Hair . Beauty specialises in cosmetic tattooing and removal at her salon on King William Road. We spoke to Alexia about social media’s impact on the beauty industry.

How has social media influenced your industry and clients? 

Social media has definitely changed the way I interact with my clients. Clients have more access to my business, and they can clearly see examples of my work and become more informed on the right treatments and products. I love interacting with clients over social media and helping them with any advice they need. I think social media is a great way to bring out your personality as well, so that clients can see I’m not just a beauty therapist, I’m also someone who deeply cares about how they feel about themselves and is determined to help them achieve all of their beauty goals.

You offer a range of treatments, from beauty and cosmetic tattooing to skin and body. What are your most popular treatments?

Hands down, cosmetic tattooing is dominating the space right now. Brows have exploded in popularity since 2014 with eyebrow feathering (also known as microblading), but lip blush tattooing is also really popular, followed by eyeliner tattoo. Busy women want to wake up ready to go with minimal effort in the mornings, and cosmetic tattooing techniques and pigments have been refined to appear more natural than ever before. 

You also offer a removal service – tell us about that.

Tattoo removal is a fantastic way to remove bad work either entirely or in parts – I offer laser and saline removal (non-laser) for unwanted cosmetic tattoos that have gone wrong, such as botched shapes and bad pigment discolourations. However, it should be noted that this treatment requires patience from the client because it requires multiple sessions to get the best result.

Do you have any tips on how to find the best eyebrow shape for different face shapes?

Yes, book in for an appointmentEach pair is customised and designed to suit the client’s features and face.  I take my time in pre-drawing the shape by following the Golden ratio measurements.

Plant-based Beauty

Jurlique’s new Activating Water Essence+, $49 (75ml) and $79 (150ml). Available from, Jurlique standalone stores and selected Myer and David Jones stores.

Once a niche in the beauty space, plant-based beauty products have now found their place in mainstream.

When Adelaide’s Jurlique Farm began harvesting over 35 years ago they did so with grand plans to grow and sow their crops of medicinal plants and herbs, and to use the potent extracts in their revolutionary range of skincare products. 

‘Plant-based’ beauty was a niche back then with the ‘seed to skin’ philosophy only entertained by those on the beauty fringe. Of course, these days it’s part of the beauty landscape, with influencers, experts and glowy faces everywhere singing its praises. 

Plant-based means exactly that, but Jurlique’s myriad of powerful products offer another advantage – the potent botanicals are harvested at their peak for optimal potency. While the process has been perfected over time, and years of experience mean they have well and truly mastered the art, they continue to improve their formulas. Even one of their best-sellers, the much-loved Activating Water Essence+, has recently been tweaked to include powerful new biodynamic botanicals that deliver even better hydration and radiance. 

Upgrading an already best-selling product might seem counterintuitive, but the delivery of innovation and the discovery of new, revolutionary ways to improve the function and feel of your skin is literally at the core of everything at Jurlique. 

The new Activating Water Essence+ contains two powerful marshmallow root extracts that help to not only increase hydration, but to also maintain hydration. Radiance is also given a boost with a unique blend of locally grown lavender, rose gallica, calendula and marshmallow root. Of course, the clean formula is free of all of the nasties, so there are no silicones, petrolatum, mineral oil, paraffin wax, parabens, and the list goes on. The final touch is the sustainable and recyclable packaging, again a nod to the company’s ethos, which centres wholly around the power of nature.

Breaking the Taboo

Young Australian of the Year Isobel Marshall and long-time friend Eloise Hall have achieved in four short years what most don’t achieve in a lifetime. And their quest to change the world has only just begun.

When a young Isobel Marshall first met Eloise Hall as a Year 7 at Walford Girls School they could never have dreamt up the journey that would follow. It was here that they learnt the importance of community service (“every year we were encouraged to engage and lead service activities,” says Isobel); they were also introduced to strong female role models who would encourage them to take part in challenging leadership activities. It was after an inspiring Women in Leadership conference at Bond University, attended while they were both captains at the prestigious school, that they were introduced to the concept of social enterprise by one of the event’s key speakers, Thank You water’s Daniel Flynn. The idea that a business could function normally, but with all of the profits going to a cause rather than to shareholders, was something that held their attention. This was the beginning. 

With a keen interest in reproductive healthcare and a new-found understanding of this concept of ‘social enterprise’, marrying the two together seemed the next logical step. From there they decided to address the worldwide problem of period poverty, making their own pads and donating 100 percent of the profit to the communities that need it most. All of this by the ages of just 17 and 18. I sat down with them both at Isobel’s family home to chat about the journey so far.

First of all, congratulations Isobel on the Young Australian of the Year award!

Isobel: Thank you! It’s still sinking in! I think the most encouraging part is that a group of people who have incredible influence in Australia decided that period poverty is a conversation that needs to have a national platform. The platform has proved to be very useful already – lots of orders have come through, lots of opportunities, lots of collaborations! The media in itself is starting the conversation and it means that people that perhaps wouldn’t have normally had those conversations are forced to listen to them in their living room! It has been incredible.

The stats surrounding period poverty are staggering, with something like 30-40 percent of girls in some developing countries not finishing school because they don’t have access to menstrual healthcare. Tell me about that.

Eloise: Exactly, and it’s heartbreaking. So many girls are not able to complete their education once they start their period due to a lack of product or a lack of access to menstrual healthcare, and there was such a simple solution. Australians spend about $300 million on pads and tampons each year, it’s a lot of money. We saw an opportunity to make some financial contribution to bettering the lives of these girls – so we thought, we need to make own product and put the profit back into what’s needed.

Isobel: And the beauty of the model is that we’re not asking the Australian customer to do anything they wouldn’t normally do or buy anything that they wouldn’t otherwise have to buy. 

Your product is called TABOO, which hints at the stigma that surrounds talking about menstruation. Can you tell me a bit about the role of ‘menstrual stigma’?

Isobel: Yes, menstrual stigma – the taboo – has a massive impact on these girls not going to school because they fear bleeding onto their dress. Even here in Australia women feel like they can’t tell their boss they have endometriosis or that they’re away from work because they’ve got their period.

Eloise: And it’s funny how ingrained it is. It’s something we’ve been taught to conceal from such a young age and it’s never something anyone’s comfortable talking to you about when you’re a kid. And when we then learn that the stigma is the driving force behind period poverty then all of a sudden it is something that does need to be addressed and we do need to open up that conversation.

You have set up a social media campaign, #tagyourtaboo, to try and address these problems. How successful has that been?

Eloise: We’ve definitely noticed some people have been uncomfortable to join the campaign. We had a lot of people show their interest and then not actually follow through and we had a lot of friends say, ‘nice idea’ and then not do much, so I think there is still a lot of personal courage that people are mustering up to be a part of the campaign. It is quite against the grain in terms of norms – no one normally shares to their social media following that they’re bleeding and that’s what we’ve asked people to do. The people that have – Rebecca Morse for example, joined the campaign recently and she has had the most incredible impact. There have been a few comments, as there always is, saying why are you doing this? What’s this all about? 

Those people who question why you are doing this are actually helping the conversation though, right?

Eloise: Yes, they’re the people we’re trying to target in that campaign. It’s opened up such a great platform for people to explain why breaking the stigma is so important.

Period poverty is clearly an issue is developing countries, but what about disadvantaged communities here in Australia?

Eloise: Period poverty is a problem in Australia as well. It’s kind of surprising when you consider how much wealth we have and how much support we have from government but still so many girls don’t have access to proper product. Even in wealthy parts of Adelaide it’s a problem because of the stigma. Then there’s rural or remote communities that just don’t have access because of the lack of product available in shops; in these areas it’s common for things such as Chux to be used instead and other materials that are absorbent, but they just aren’t dignified and they don’t work as well as they need to. 

In Scotland they’ve recently made sanitary products free. Should our government be doing more?

Isobel: That’s a great question. I guess you can liken pads to toilet paper, it’s a product a large part of the population needs and there should be support from the government, whether it be subsidised product or just access to product.

Eloise: Victoria has been quite progressive in establishing a public system where pads are provided, so that’s really hopeful and the Commissioner for Children and Young People, Helen Connolly, is quite excited to have a similar initiative in place through schools in South Australia. Helen’s really advocating for the school systems to make pads accessible via a dispensing system.

You have also recently launched another unique marketing push – this time directed toward employers. Can you tell us a bit about this?

Isobel: Yes, we’re challenging employers to consider stocking TABOO product for their employees. We’d love to challenge people of do this, even before there’s laws around it, because it’s the right thing to do and also just to be on the front-foot and open the conversation up with their employees. It’s also a great way to support your female employees. SkyCity have shown interest, Flinders Uni are going to get on board too, the National Wine Centre and we recently pitched it to a whole bunch of CEOs at a conference.

We actually already do that here!

Isobel: Really? That’s great! How good would it be if all major South Australian businesses got on board?

The journey has obviously been amazing so far, so what happens next? 

Eloise: The next chapter for us involves an exciting new retail partnership. The end goal is for us to be present everywhere people buy their product. 

TABOO products are stocked at On The Run, National Pharmacies and online at

What is Skin Needling?

We explore the pros and cons of skin needling and explain the benefits of an in-salon treatment with Lifestyle Medical’s Dr Katina Koukourou.

What is skin needling?

It’s a minimally invasive medical grade procedure that uses fine needles to puncture your skin for a wide variety of skin benefits.

What happens during the treatment?

Topical anaesthesia is applied to the skin for 20-30mins. The skin is then sterilised to prevent infection and several tiny sterile stainless steel micro needles on a disposable tip of a pen device are injected into the skin. These micro needles are injected at high speed, penetrating perpendicularly to the skin surface. Topical serums are used during the procedure, containing hyaluronic acid for hydration, peptides, growth factors and antioxidants. 

Does it hurt?

At doctor supervised clinics a prescription-only topical anaesthetic cream is applied, which numbs the skin, so the procedure is very well tolerated with minimal discomfort. Use of anaesthesia in-clinic allows a deeper needle depth with minimal discomfort enabling the needles to reach the dermis. This obtains optimal, fast results. The numbing effect lasts up to two hours. The actual skin needling procedure itself takes around 30 minutes. The face appears red from one to three days following the procedure and you need to apply sunscreen afterwards and to avoid direct sun exposure for up to four days. 

What are the benefits?

The overall effect of skin needling is skin rejuvenation – improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores, pigmentation and overall skin texture. It also helps to tighten the skin and can improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. 

How many treatments are needed to see results?

You can see visible results two to four weeks post treatment. Although you will see results with one treatment, best results are achieved when a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart are performed. Maintenance treatments can be performed throughout the year.

What’s the difference between at-home micro needling and a professional treatment?

To reach the level of the dermis where collagen production is stimulated the needles need to be a certain depth in each specific area. In-clinic skin needling can safely use an increased needle depth, often of up to 2.5mm, due to the topical local anaesthetic cream applied under doctor supervision.

The fact that the needles used in-clinic are entering perpendicularly at high speed is theoretically less traumatic to the skin compared to some home roller devices, which enter the skin at an angle. Some in-clinic devices also insert product into the skin under vacuum pressure, enhancing their delivery to the dermis.
