Masters of riding. Masters of motivation. Masters of empowerment.

Meet the instructors who will challenge and support you on your journey.

Ariel

After spending my childhood exploring my passion as an actress, I decided it was time to chase my other passion in life – fitness. While filming a TV series in 2016, I undertook my certification in fitness and decided to make it my mission to do every type of training possible, ranging from sprint training, pilates, boxing, HIIT and of course – Ride! I have trained in Ride all over the states and am ready to kick your butts into gear! Ride with me and expect to the workout of a lifetime!

My Mantra

“Just because you are struggling does NOT mean you are failing. Every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there.”
“Comparison is the thief of joy”.

 

 

Music Of Choice
RnB ALL. THE. WAY! If you love Usher, Beyonce, Destiny’s Child, Rihanna – then I’m your gal. I can almost guarantee you’ll be able to sing along to every song while you ride your butts off.

 

Life Beyond The Chamber
When I’m not riding, I’m either training elsewhere or eating my way across Melbourne’s vegan cafes or cuddling my gorgeous puppy/boyfriend/nephews!

Andrea

Born and raised in Mexico, I came to Melbourne in 2018 for a new adventure! The moment I stepped in Bodhi & Ride I immediately fell in love with the community, the RIDE and the energy behind the tribe! Ride with me and expect to have a lot of fun. You will dance, laugh and have the greatest workout of your life.

Life Beyond The Chamber
When I’m not riding you can find me walking my gorgeous labrador, exploring new delicious restaurants in Melbourne (yes, I eat a lot) and bar hopping with my friends!

Chelsea

As a lifelong athlete with a passion for a variety of fitness and sports activities, it’s no surprise I was drawn to take the podium as a Ride Instructor. Growing up I played field hockey and ice hockey through high school, and started skating at age 9. I captained my college/university field hockey team and won three league titles. I was a competitive boxer with an undisputed win in my first fight on the record! My goal is to inspire participants to get uncomfortable and try something that scares them a little bit because that’s where the change and transformation happens. You’ll see moments in class that are inspired by my athletic background, where we will push our pace, accelerate to reach top speeds and top resistances, and maybe try some boxing-inspired core and arm work integrated in the workout.

My Mantra

The moment you want to give up is the moment you’re about to transform.

What defines you is what you’re willing to struggle for. Strength is built by struggle.

 

Music Of Choice
I appreciate the experience of music, and building the perfect playlist is critical to me.

Expect to hear Hip hop, EDM, RNB. Any and all things Drake or Kanye, with a side of Sigala or trap DJs. Anything that gets your heart beating fast and propels you during the moments you need it most.

 

Life Beyond The Chamber
I love exploring various modes of fitness, including CrossFit, pilates, kickboxing, running, weightlifting, and power yoga. I’ve run a few half marathons and would consider a full marathon in the future! I’m a wine lover, and spend time exploring local cafes. I also love the outdoors and spend weekends hiking or flyfishing.

Michaela

A corporate drop-out, I knew I wanted to devote my life to helping people feel better about themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. I discovered spin classes in a London gym nearly 18 years ago! Back then, spin classes took place in smelly, brightly lit rooms, with bad music. From this moment I knew I wanted to re-invent spin classes. And I did. Ride with me and you’ll reset and leave feeling strong confident.

Claudia

I spent 10 years training as a gymnast, before discovering indoor rhythm ride 3 years ago. To me it’s the perfect combination of the grace in dancing and power in gymnastics. My goal is to give people an extreme workout, focusing on both physical and mental wellbeing. I will push you to believe in yourself and you will walk out of the chamber with a huge sense of accomplishment!

When I am not riding I like to hangout with my friends. I love going out for a nice big breakfast (eggs and pancakes)! Essentially, I love any activity/place that involves food!

Macarena

Born in Mexico and shaped by my stays around the world: France, Korea, the US. Growing up, I danced ballet and later decided to run triathlons and marathons. Rhythm cycling blends my love for music and fitness which is what drove me to become an instructor. I found my place in Melbourne when I discovered Bodhi & Ride; the vibe and the community captivated me! It never fails to fill me with positive energy. Ride with me and expect to go beyond your limits. Feel the music flowing through you and let it power your body.

Wen

Born and raised in Malaysia, I’m currently living in the beautiful CBD and pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree at RMIT. I’ve always been passionate about fitness but have struggled to find a type of exercise that I LOVED. When I took my first Rhythm Ride, that all changed! I love music and I love sweating, combining the two together feels like I’m clubbing, except I know I won’t regret the next morning! When you ride with me, you will disconnect from the outside world. You’ll create an alter ego and release the inner beast. I want you to know that in my rides you can freely be yourself. I want you to leave feeling strong and empowered!

Jamie

Born and bred in London but am originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Monserrat, Italy and England. I have been teaching for 3 and a half years now. Rhythm riding is my escape from the outside world. Riding to the beat brings takes my back to my days as a dancer. For me, exercising to music makes me work harder, push more and smile through the exhaustion. Music is my everything! It’s transformative, just like my Rides.

Gemma

I’ve tried my hand at every sport under the sun  (rowing, boxing, yoga, netball, athletics and even sport aerobics), but I’ve always loved rhythm riding! After living in Toronto and London, I moved back to Melbourne where I found my place at Bodhi & Ride. I loved it so much that I was inspired to take to the podium for the first time. Ride with me and we will come together as one tribe and smash the glass ceiling every single time. Expect plenty of high-fives, good vibes and a LOT of energy.

When I’m not riding or walking around counting ‘1,2,1,2’ to every song I hear, I love spending as much time in the great outdoors, either camping or by the beach!

Caitlin

I’m the bubble person at 6am. Enough said surely? After swimming for years, I turned to the sand, snow and the fitness industry. After some time away instructing,  I’m returning to Bodhi and to my obsession of RIDING with my Tribe!

I’m a seasonal extremist; the winter is made for skiing and the summer is made for the beach! But really, if I’m not teaching I’m clipped in at Bodhi or shaking at K-Kore… or eating, always eating.

Amber

I was born and raised in beautiful British Columbia. I love travelling and have been lucky to spend time in beautiful parts of the world (Cuba, Mexico and Hawaii. I’ve also lived in Tokyo). I began instructing in Vancouver 7 months ago and am excited to bring my passion for music and my sweet dance moves to the Bodhi Tribe. Ride with me for high energy and unlimited motivation.
