my health prospects must be on par with a two-pack-a-day smoker! In an effort to stop the rot, earlier this year I signed up for Sam Wood’s online fitness program, which promises to get you in tip-top shape with just 28 minutes of exercise a day – all in the comfort of your own home. And so I joined the digital fitness revolution that has millions of us sweating along with online personal trainers and gulping green smoothies with Instagram fitspo (that’s fitness inspiration) stars. It’s a global phenomenon that has turned digitally savvy health gurus into instant celebrities, with millions of followers and lucrative marketing deals. In this week’s special Wellness edition, we meet some of Melbourne’s home-grown fitspo superstars and check out the latest health trends sweeping the city. Happy (and healthy) reading. ●

SEPTEMBER 7, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 7
Rachelle Unreich meets Melbourne’s celebrity wellness warriors
ove over, foodies. A new social trend has taken over. Fitness inspiration or #Fitspo Instagrammers are the new celebs of social media, boasting millions of followers who hang on their every green smoothie bowl or downward dog pose. Adelaide-based personal trainer turned fitsposuper star Kayla Itsines, who has 5.5 million Instagram followers, sells out boot camps around the world (New York
recently) and presides over a fitness empire that includes her Bikini Body Guide app, e-books and a range of hot-pink “Kayla” weights, sweat towels and sundry fitness accessories. “It is a complete phenomenon,” says Jules Lund, founder of TRIBE, an app that connects brands and “influencers”. “First, we saw the rise of celebrity chefs; now it’s fitspo role models and a fantastic wave of health education. The more you see people on social media being healthy
and living an outdoor life, the better it is.” The reason this industry has exploded on Instagram and Snapchat, says Jules, is because “what you’re watching, over thousands of posts, is their lifestyle. It’s not like seeing a celebrity on the front page of a glossy magazine who’s gone hard for three months because they’re preparing for a film. Instead, you see a daily reminder of these people living a consistently healthy lifestyle across food, fitness and well-being”.
In many ways, it echoes the zeitgeist, too. “It’s also about female empowerment,” says Jules. “Not being wafer-thin but strong, powerful, in control. You see Michelle Payne winning the Melbourne Cup, you see Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm, the fastest-growing female sports stars … And social media is dominated by females.” We asked three of Melbourne’s most popular fitspo stars about fitness and fame. ● firstname.lastname@example.org
ELLIOTT MAE DREW
aura Henshaw is your typical girl next door – if the girl next door towers over the fence (she’s 178 centimetres) and does modelling gigs when she’s not studying law. Now 23, Laura started a blog two years ago when she was modelling in Milan and wanted to be productive with her down time. Before long, she’d garnered fans who admired her healthy proportions and responded to her message of moderation. For Laura, that means eating three healthy meals and two snacks a day based on a wholefoods diet, with very little processed food (dark chocolate is allowed and even hot chips occasionally!) She works out six times a week, mixing workouts with running – a stress reliever for her – functional training, boxing and high interval training. She wasn’t always so wedded to moderation. When modelling overseas, Laura dropped six kilos in her quest to secure jobs. (One agent suggested she just have a cup of tea for dinner.) But soon she took stock of the pressures. As she says, “On my own Instagram account [which has nearly 90,000 followers], I follow sports people, athletes, Richard Branson. They’re my inspiration. I don’t really follow many Victoria’s Secret models.” Now she has teamed up with her best friend, model Steph Claire Smith, to develop an e-cookbook, Keep It Clean. They have also started a platform, Keep It Cleaner, which offers a $7.99 monthly subscription for simple recipes, exercises and a video. Laura’s Instagram account is about keeping things unadorned. “I don’t mind if there are photos of me that aren’t beautiful, because that’s what I sometimes look like. “My worst nightmare is portraying a life that’s unachievable and out of reach for girls.” ● 8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ SEPTEMBER 7, 2016
hen personal trainer El Drew opened her Instagram account, she had low expectations. “I thought I might get 500 followers, who knows?” Make that 131,000 to date. Instead of just watching the numbers rise, El got serious and turned it into a second job. “I realised, ‘I’m reaching people all around the world almost unintentionally; I can turn this into a business and put more thought into my content’.” Her account, @fit_with_el, is an eye-pleaser, with her lithe body doing impossible poses, a mix of healthful snacks and the occasional dog photo (she has a Rottweiler named Archie). Her profile has helped expand her business and heightened her appeal to marketers – “lots of activewear and protein powder companies” – although she says lately she has noticed a drop in the offers. “I’ve also started becoming more picky – I didn’t want to look like an Instagrammer who was constantly hounding people with products. At the start I was like, ‘This is cool, I can get a pair of [free] tights,’ but then I realised it’s not about showing people advertising. I want to show people how to work out.” Not all the perks have disappeared. “I scored a dream job with Active Escapes, an online company that runs fitness retreats in Bali, Hawaii and amazing tropical places. Now I’m in Bali for one week every year, hosting their fitness retreat.” Even though there are many fitspo types fighting for that online space, she says she has always found her peers and competitors to be “incredibly friendly and warm”. El offers customised workouts online, although she also has a personal training and boot camp business. “It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. I give people personalised plans so if they have an injury or setback, I tailor it to their fitness level and what they want to achieve. But there are cheaper guides for the 18-year-old who can’t afford that.” The upshot? “I feel quite lucky, because every day I get emails from all over the world, with people saying thank-you. It’s well rewarded – knowing you have such a positive impact.” ●
setting yourself up for success
Choose exercise that also helps you feel emotionally good. For Laura, that’s running, her stress reliever. For Tully, it’s yoxing – yoga and boxing.
Make it realistic or you won’t be able to stick to a plan. El says: “I don’t like extreme measures. I won’t say to a client, ‘You have to stop doing this’.”
Avoid processed foods. Laura admits they “affect my mood and energy”.
Reinvent your favourite recipes. Laura learnt to do this using substitutes: a mix of almond meal, spelt and coconut flour instead of wheat flour, Greek yoghurt instead of butter, rice malt syrup instead of sugar. ●
alk about a high achiever. At 28, Tully Humphrey has her own activewear label (Tully Lou), is behind a new hybrid form of exercise (boxing + yoga = Yoxing) and has taught a Bikram yoga class to One Direction’s Harry Styles. Not bad for a girl who survived anorexia and dropped out of school in year 10 to find a pathway to good health. Growing up in Kyneton, Tully says her childhood was “happy” but she suddenly became obsessed with food at 14. “Recovery took a good five years,” she says. Yoga, which she had embarked upon to lose weight, instead helped her to appreciate her body’s strength and ability. Three years ago, she began her Instagram account to showcase her activewear designs. “It took me a long time to recognise that people were following me because they wanted to know me more than the brand. When I write about still having bad days, people respond to me better than if it was a [photo] of me and my abs.” She hopes to inspire others, even though she concedes fitspo accounts can sometimes hurt those with poor body image, as much as they can help. She’s careful not to use models “who are super, super-skinny, because that’s not the message I am trying to send across. “It’s all about balance. I make healthy choices but I also drink – it’s not all superhealthy. I do have fun. I’ve still got to live!’’ But being in the social media eye isn’t all positive. “I’ve put up photos of a model before and had horrible comments from people. I will delete them, but sometimes you can get stuck in this dark place and go backwards. “That’s when I have to turn myself around and say, ‘These people that are commenting is not your [stuff], it’s their [stuff]’.” Tully has almost 54,000 Instagram followers, but says she tries not to focus on
Don’t obsess. As Tully says, “make healthy choices, but obsession is not healthy”.
T I F E M FA R FO
figures. Still such numbers are a magnet for brands, which offer fitspo stars $150 to $1500 (or more) a post to promote their products. Tully can afford to turn down those opportunities because she generates an income from her active wear label and from speaking engagements. Long term, she hopes to finish a book she’s writing about her journey. “It will provide tools to get out of some of life’s challenges – such as eating disorders or a break-up. For a long time as a teenager, I thought I would never be normal again. I want readers to know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.” ●

Judge on Australia’s Next Top Model Listen to your body and make time to give it what it needs. If it’s sleep, make time for it. If it’s exercise, make time for it and choose the best exercise for your body that day. When you are dehydrated, drink plenty of water and fuel your body with the best nourishment you can. My favourite is soup – comforting, tasty and healthy. ● (SUPPLIED)
I try and eat in moderation and I really try to balance out my meals. Obviously, I eat a lot of sweets, so I try and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner really cleanly. But on the weekends I love a little splurge! Every Sunday I have pizza and a bucket of ice-cream – they’re my go-to splurge foods. ●

Mum and dad have always made sure my brothers and I feel loved and important. I think if you have that reinforced growing up, when push comes to shove you are more likely to back and believe in yourself … I also have an incredibly sane husband who is a great sounding board. Having a life and family outside of work is very important. ●
I box to keep fit. I found a gym in North Melbourne that trains fighters and it has given me a focus and helped me in my business life, too. When I started boxing I was always on the front foot but my trainer told me to stay on the back foot, to control the opponent and move them around. I take those skills to work. In a meeting now, instead of having a preconceived mission I sit back a bit, duck and weave, take it all in and listen. ●

HOW DO THEY DO IT? ADAM GOODES
I’m like anyone else – I get down and out sometimes. When I was playing professionally I sat down with our sports psychologist once a week for a debrief and that kept me level-headed. Now I talk to people who’ve been there for me for years. But sometimes you need to talk to someone who doesn’t know you – you need that bit of distance. If you’ve been feeling crappy for a couple of weeks, have a chat to someone to figure out why. There’s nothing wrong with saying, ‘I need a bit of help’. Guys need to break down that stereotype that it’s a sign of weakness. I put my hand up many times and don’t see myself as soft or weak for doing that. ●

I begin each day around 6am by spending an hour reading a book and drinking coffee, followed by 45 to 60 minutes of exercise – so my reading and exercise are locked away before other distractions get in the way. I do a different thing each day – high-intensity cardio sessions like swimming, running and cycling or strength training. Most days I incorporate stretching and/or yoga – the Sworkit app is great for this. On a good day I love a late afternoon walk. And I don’t drink coffee after 3pm. ●

Ask the wine guy
I want to get in shape for spring. Q Does it mean I have to give up wine altogether?
W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S
Maybe not altogether, but you’re A looking at between 110 and 300 calories for a glass of wine. Interestingly
Craggy Range Sophia 2014 (Hawke’s Bay) $105; 13.5%
it’s the alcohol that contains most of the calories – almost twice the calories of any sugar that may be present in the wine. If you’re a sucker for a sticky or have a penchant for port, you’ll need to give them up. If you’re going to have a glass of wine, make it a good one that will drink well over a few days or keep the bottle fresh with Winesave, a can of argon gas that keeps the wine from oxidising. ● GOT A QUESTION? EMAIL \
It drank well immediately, but this took three days to really hit its straps, revealing a bouquet of dark berries, redcurrants, bay and pencil-scented oak. It’s dense and concentrated, but balanced and really well composed – it’s a rock-star wine, but not showy. Tannins are excellent, structure really good and there’s a sweet vanilla oak character on the impressive finish. ● Enjoy with \ Lamb and artichoke ragu
Foxeys Hangout Shiraz 2015 (Mornington Peninsula) $45; 13.5%
Tibooburra Wines Solitude Shiraz 2015 (Yarra Valley) $30; 13%
If you haven’t been down to Foxeys’ restaurant and cellar door, do yourself a favour. I’ve long been a fan of this shiraz. It’s always spicy and perfumed, with dark cherry and plum flavours. It is on top form this year – there’s all of that plus a bright, fresh acid, fine tannins and loads of energy. It’s concentrated, juicy and delicious. ●
This is a perfumed, funky beast and one that I adored drinking over three nights. Satin-smooth, this is a complex cool-climate shiraz that’s filled with stalky whole-bunch perfume, pepper and spice, plus concentrated blue fruits and cherry flavours. Fresh and bright, it finishes with a burst of perfumed flavour. ●

WE LOVE De Bortoli Estate Grown Chardonnay 2015 (Yarra Valley) $25; 12.5% Made from several parcels of chardonnay at Dixons Creek, this is delightfully delicate chardonnay – fine-boned and structured.

t’s 2016. Aliens descend upon Earth in search of “life”. They poke at our activated nuts, marvel at coconut’s chameleonic properties, try to pronounce quinoa. Then leave with a NutriBullet and some chia seeds, ne’er to return. Alien or no, it’s not easy to find a nutrition bowl worth coming back for in this town. What I like about LBSS is their inclusive approach to eating. Zoned dining rooms with cushioned seats ensure a cosy comfort, while their Little, Big, Sugar, Salt menu helps diners pick quickly, be it sugar-quitting snack or big, bold Breakfast for Juan. They offer Eggs with Friends, a per-head “polyamorous” smorgasbord of “good for you” food and filter coffee. A sign of a cafe that continues to evolve with how we like to eat, but doesn’t jump on every coloured latte bandwagon. They serve pillowy, chai-spiced pancakes that are gluten-free. Roasted Kumara (aka sweet potato) replaces bread on This One because it tastes better. Kombucha is made from scratch using their own tea blends, as are the kimchi and peanut butter. But what LBSS does best is create a space where everyone feels empowered to eat well and feel good. After all, isn’t that what life is about? ● firstname.lastname@example.org

COOKING \ I clipped Teresa Cutter’s kale pie out of Sunday Sunday Life Life magazine a few weeks back and it’s become a go-to! It’s a big load of greens, sweated down, with just enough egg to combine, then baked for longer than you’d think so everything’s super-crispy. It’s like a fritter/green juice hybrid. The melty feta cheese makes it. ● READING \ Simon Bajada’s Nordic Light (Hardie Grant, $50) is not only an album of stunning Scandinavian landscapes, it’s also terrific for those looking to lift their vegetable game. There’s an entire section on “food in bowls”, which won me over instantly. I’ve scored you some recipes, which you’ll find online. ●

MW: INDUSTRY BEANS and their Crispy Beans & Quinoa every time. Honourable mention goes to the Umami Mushroom dish at the impossibly small yet adorable ADMIRAL CHENG HO.

MW: The only place my husband and I have been regularly surprising one another with for anniversaries and birthdays is SPICE TEMPLE. They customise their dishes to be animal-free for us, and their service is top-notch. A QUIET DINNER \ SM: HOME. Nothing like a home-cooked meal, eaten on the couch in the midst of a Law & Order marathon. MW: FUKUYAMA Y YAMA RAMEN – While busy and bustling, Fuk-U, as we affectionately call it, is great. Suck down their only (and amazing)
vegan option, the Miso Ramen. And I love their self-serve sparkly water fountain. TO SEE & BE SEEN \ SM: SUPPER INN. Where anyone who knows anything is eating at 2am. MW: EAU DE VIE. Dress up and have fancy drinks with tiny airplanes, and don’t miss their hot eggplant chips.

It wasn’t always so for the popular 2014 MasterChef contestant, who endured the trial of being eliminated twice from the sixth series of the reality TV show (eventually won by Victorian bobcat driver Brent Owens). “I remember I cried the night before I first went into MasterChef because I watched a mystery box challenge and was like, what the hell am I going to cook from 10 ingredients that have no relevance to each other,” she says. “But it makes you think about the principles of a good dish: the flavour, texture and balance. It is a really steep learning curve and then one day it just clicks because you can just look at a box and make something of it.” The box Sarah carried away from MasterChef included a deal for her own cookbook, The Healthy Model Cookbook (published by Penguin Australia), two forthcoming documentaries, the opening of her own restaurant and resort. But there was a bittersweet component,
too – the end of her six-year relationship with British-Indian businessman Devinder Garcha. The couple remain on good terms, sharing the custody of their five-year-old son Phoenix, while Sarah has found a new passion in Dev’s ancestral homeland. “I fell in love with a whole country,” she says. “It has a soul that just draws you in.” Last November, Sarah opened her Antares Restaurant & Beach Club resort. It is perched on a hillside in Vagator, North Goa, and has the backing of leading Delhi restaurateur and business partner Ashish Kapur. The 250-seat restaurant has two kitchens, 13 villas, an infinity pool and its own shop and 80 staff. It was no small undertaking, as viewers will learn when A Long Way For Dinner – a documentary about its construction – screens on SBS later this year. “I don’t think I really had enough time to think about what I was getting myself into,” Sarah says. “It just happened and was completely insane. The whole kitchen ventilation was put in the wrong way and had to be removed and put back up again. “Our water tank had been placed above the generator and it exploded so we had water on electricity. There were people jackhammering
in thongs. The generator ran out of fuel and all the produce we brought in to do the menu testing went off. My hair was falling out, I was so stressed. I didn’t think it was ever going to be under control. “Then one day I went in and looked around and everything was functioning. It was like all of a sudden, it just clicked and then it was like, ‘Wow, now I can sit back and appreciate what I have worked so hard for’.” A second TV documentary, The Adventures of Sarah Todd, which follows her on a food journey across India, aired there in June. Sarah, who grew up in Walkerston, Queensland and now lives in Northcote, has a large following in India, thanks to MasterChef MasterChef. “MasterChef is massive in India and I had “MasterChef cooked a traditional Punjabi village dish, aloo gobi, which didn’t go unnoticed. I initially went to India to see what all the fuss was about because I had a following on social media and then I got there and I was like this superstar, it was completely bizarre,” she says of her first visit in late 2014. By then she was well into researching her cookbook. “The cookbook was the best thing for me to do because all I did for the first six

months was research the food I actually love to create, something that is achievable for myself and everyone else. “After MasterChef I just sat on my couch and went, ‘What am I going to cook for dinner? Do I have to make this extravagant meal that takes two hours?’ “Then I thought, ‘What is food for? It is to nourish your body, to give you energy and of course it has to taste good’. “I knew what good flavour was so I basically deconstructed everything to create healthy, tasty dishes in a quick time frame, which is what my cookbook is all about.” Perhaps surprisingly for someone who spent 10 years as a high-end model for the likes of Gucci and Seafolly, Sarah has always had a healthy relationship with food. “I never went to the point of starving myself, but I was strict at times – you have to be in the industry. But if you cut everything out I can guarantee you are going to be that person hiding in your bedroom eating chocolate. “I would say count nutrients, rather than calories.” ● email@example.com

ew dancers can claim to have had the impact of ballet legend Vaslav Nijinsky. An extraordinary performer and a groundbreaking choreographer, the Russian-Polish dancer has a legacy all the more impressive considering he was on stage for a mere 10 years. It’s this remarkable legacy that powers the Australian Ballet’s new production of Nijinsky from American choreographer John Neumeier. “I think he really changed the face of ballet in the 20th century,” says David McAllister, the company’s artistic director. “At that time, the ballerina was in charge. Then Nijinsky arrived and he turned people’s opinions towards male dancers. Everyone who came after him would always be called the new Nijinsky. He was the benchmark for what a male ballet star was.” David says attempting to recreate the work of

such a legendary artist might be seen as asking for trouble. As such, Nijinsky takes a different approach, using seven dancers including Kevin Jackson to portray different aspects of the performer. It also refuses to borrow from the past. Rather than cribbing from Nijinsky’s works, it employs new choreography to evoke his memory. “The genius of the ballet is it isn’t trying to recreate Nijinsky at all, it’s just trying to give the audience a taste of the profound impact he had on the world,” David says. “It’s not a story ballet and not a biography ballet. John says it’s about going to the soul of the artist, a choreographic poem about his life. In the mix of his life, you see the evolution of ballet in the 20th century.” While the piece resists the temptation to offer a simple retelling of Nijinsky’s somewhat tragic tale – he retired from performing after a nervous breakdown at the tender age of 29 – David says the audience should come prepared for an emotional night at the theatre. “We haven’t got through a rehearsal without the whole company reaching for the Kleenex. It’s a towering emotional work, the sort of dance theatre people sometimes don’t often associate with ballet. People who think ballet’s not for them should give Nijinsky a try.” ●

To say graphic novelist Nadja Spiegelman had an unusual childhood is to experiment with the art of extreme understatement. Her famous father Art wrote Maus and her mother was the French-born art director for the New Yorker Yorker. Nadja grew up as literary royalty, flitting between the US and mum Francoise Mouly’s family in Paris. Mum is the real star of this captivating memoir, an eccentric kicking against her own past – and repeating it. ●

my arms also got a workout from using the stretchy resistance bands. Who should do it? Anyone who wants a fun workout while learning a new skill – and ex-tappers who want to get back into it. The bill It’s $18 for the 45-minute class or $90 for a six-class pass including the use of the tap attachments and tap mat. (SUPPLIED)
The reality Our instructor, Lisa, gives us our tap attachments and we jump onto the special tap mats that protect the dance studio floor. Creator Annie has come along to the class and explains that tap is not only good for the body but for the mind, too, as it involves learning and remembering combinations of steps. I was a dancer in a former life, so as soon as I put the tap attachments on I’m shuffling all over the show – I can’t help it. The tap attachments are one of the cleverest things I’ve seen in a long time and they feel, and sound, like normal tap shoes. The routine is super-simple tap-wise, meaning anyone can do it. We learn some very easy steps, which are then combined with jumps, hops and kicks – all set to music.

Do you need to Detox?
e’ve all heard of the cleansing, cure-all, weight-loss diets that purge the body of toxins and have you looking like a Hollywood hottie in no time. There are the detox, teatox and juicing diets that offer a healthier body and mind. But while the various regimes make big promises, Epworth Richmond’s head dietitian Caroline Guille says few, if any, of those promises are actually delivered. “I think with any detox diet the intention is that it’s supposed to purge the toxins in our body, like all the processed and refined foods we eat, the alcohol and caffeine, cigarettes and external pollutants that apparently get into our system,” she says. “The thing is, humans have evolved to detox naturally using our skin, liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract, which all help protect and detox the body,” she says.
“So these diets aren’t necessary.” Caroline says some detox diets can restrict the number of calories a person eats to just a few hundred a day, meaning dieters may not be getting the adequate nutrition they need to be healthy. “Restricting diets can be particularly dangerous if someone is pregnant or breastfeeding, for someone who has a history of eating disorders or for children because it can be quite detrimental to developmental processes,” she says. “A healthy body needs fibre, vitamins and minerals contained in healthy foods to function well. “However, while it’s not recommended that people do these detox diets, there is some good that can come from them. “Often the thought of going on a detox can be a kick-start to developing ongoing healthy choices,” she says. Caroline recommends eating more fruit,

The diet also includes good fats such as avocados, nuts and olive oil, which is linked to long-term heart health. While the Mediterranean diet can help people get healthier, Caroline says people shouldn’t be too restrictive about what they eat. “You really need to be realistic about your diet and allow yourself a Tim Tam once in a while … because being too restrictive means you won’t be able to sustain it long-term,” she says. At Epworth Richmond, Caroline works with an inpatient service for people who have diet-related conditions or who have conditions that need a special diet. ● MELISSA HEAGNEY firstname.lastname@example.org

– except, of course, that this machine comes with a plush level of comfort. The cabin shows off Porsche heritage in small round driver dials, perhaps too small for the sat-nav tucked behind the steering wheel. We’re missing inclusions I expected at this level, such as a rear-vision camera, keyless entry and keyless start. As for storage, front and rear boots provide enough luggage space for a motoring holiday, yet there’s a lack of handy places for your water bottle, sunglasses and small change in the cabin. With the Boxster straining at the leash, we shook off the cobwebs and let it find its comfort zone with a spin down the coast. Roll on summer, when the easy one-switch roof lowering and raising will get a workout, undoubtedly turning a few more heads. ●

JACQUI’S VERDICT (ISTOCK)
Why? Because it is the benchmark. It might not be the most powerful, fastest or most jaw-dropping drop-top going around, but it is arguably the most cohesive, albeit at a price north of $100,000. With a mid-mounted engine, taut body and a chassis tuned like a Stradivarius, the Boxster is pure sports car, bonded as a complete package for driving excellence. The latest iteration swaps the traditional six-cylinder horizontally opposed normally aspirated engine for a new turbo-charged four-cylinder “boxer”. Have no fear, the new, smaller but feistier 2.0-litre engine in the entry-level Boxster (the Boxster S gets a 2.5-litre version) delivers on all fronts, and even sounds splendid with the optional $4990 (phew!) sports exhaust. ●

ME & MY MENTOR
Korowa Anglican Girls’ School 10-16 Ranfurlie Crescent, Glen Iris 9811 0200
E L L A F O X & M I C H E L L E R YA N
ichelle Ryan is the Head of Science at Korowa Anglican Girls’ School and is passionate about teaching VCE students about psychology and the science of the brain. Ella Fox is a Korowa alumna, graduating in 2012, and is Michelle’s former student. She is equally passionate about psychology, studying it at university. They have stayed in touch, sharing in each other’s success. ● email@example.com
ELLA SAYS … can use what you’ve learnt to help run an efficient and successful project by playing on people’s strengths. It’s more transferable than I thought it would be – that was a big surprise. My time at Korowa was really happy and I have a lot of great memories. Ms Ryan was a really passionate teacher and is so caring. Throughout my studies we kept in touch, I showed Ms Ryan a few of my assignments and we talked about new research being done in the field. Psychology is great because it can be so broad but I also found that a little bit challenging when narrowing down what area of work I wanted to go into. I’ve gone into an area of work that’s completely different and new for me, but I think it’s important to be open to trying new things and challenging yourself, and I’m so glad I have. Psychology will always be of great interest to me and I’ll always find ways to use it in everyday life. I still keep in touch with other Korovians, and I have my five-year reunion next year, which will be great to catch up with everyone. ●
“you can use what you’ve learnt to help run an efficient & successful project”
MICHELLE SAYS …
’ve been in education for 20 years now and during that time I have worked in the classroom and in a range of roles both here in Melbourne and overseas. While I was overseas, I worked in an education project management position but really felt that I wanted to get back into the classroom, specifically to teach psychology and science. I just love working with young people and I found that I missed it after not being in the classroom for a while. So I started at Korowa part-time and have gradually increased my hours to now be full-time and Head of Science, and I love it.
I’m currently teaching middle school science and year 11 and 12 psychology. I think with the global need and awareness-raising at the moment around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) I feel privileged to be in that space and in my role. I’m very passionate about psychology. I’ve said to the girls lots of times that even if you don’t go on to study a degree in psychology, every aspect of what we cover in the course relates to your life somehow. A big component of the psychology course covers mental health, which I believe is a really important aspect for everybody to be far more aware of and be able to talk
y interest in studying psychology came from the fact that I saw how prevalent mental health issues are and the huge impact they have on the individual and wider community. I think it’s vital that we learn more about this area so we all have a greater understanding. When I was at Korowa, psychology was definitely my favourite subject. You can take so much from it and it has real-world applications. It covers every aspect of life and you can always take something from it. After my final year at Korowa, I went to Monash University and studied a bachelor of psychological science, which I graduated in at the start of this year. I also started a new job this year – as an associate project manager with an information technology services company. Although it’s not in the psychology field, I’ve still found my psychology studies really useful because I’m able to apply a lot of the skills that I’ve learnt in terms of reporting findings and documenting data. On the other hand, it’s also very helpful when interacting with others in a workplace setting, as you
openly about. One important message I want the students to know is that things can happen – both good and not so great – and that we can all come up against life challenges. If we can allow ourselves to experience all that comes with that, seek support and be open about our experiences, that’s an important message that I want the girls I teach to have. For me, Ella was just such a great student. From the outset in year 11 she was genuinely interested and fascinated with psychology. From her level of questioning and her engagement, analysis and further probing about how humans are, I knew she had a natural affinity with it. She’s
just such a genuine person and a caring humanitarian … she actually was Social Service Captain when she was here. I was thrilled when she went on to study psychology at university and I know she is keen to utilise her learnings in her life. We’ve kept in touch after she finished school here. She’s very good with kids and she does look after my children (two sons) from time to time. On the odd occasion I will see other [alumnae] out and about and they’re doing other courses, such as midwifery or nursing or some other course, and they mention the linkages to what they are studying and what they did with me in psychology. It’s great. ● SEPTEMBER 7, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 27

URBAN SPACES YA R R A B E N D
The selling point Architect-designed free-standing homes in a future-proofed master-planned new mini-suburb on the banks of the Yarra River, next to parklands and near the city, leading schools and transport.
he recent first-stage release of 70 free-standing architect-designed homes in Melbourne’s future mini-suburb YarraBend has been enthusiastically received by home buyers with sales exceeding $40 million on the first day. These first-stage luxury homes are in YarraBend’s Park precinct and have three to six bedrooms and multiple living areas with prices from $1.5 million to $2.25 million, including landscaping, fencing and driveways. Completion is set for early to mid-2018. Just 6.5 kilometres from the city, the 16-hectare YarraBend is on the site of the former Alphington paper mill. It is across the Yarra River from Studley Park in Kew and bordered by the river, Alphington Park, Heidelberg Road and Chandler Highway. YarraBend is inner-Melbourne’s largest urban regeneration project since Docklands and is being developed by the Glenvill Group. When complete, YarraBend will include up to 2500 dwellings, four large parks, an elevated linear trail inspired by New York’s High Line, a health and wellness centre (including 25-metre pool and gym) and a cosmopolitan food, arts and culture precinct. The wider precinct will include a shopping centre with two major supermarkets and 30 specialty stores and boutiques. A primary school is also proposed. Luxury home builder Glenvill is developing 1700 dwellings as free-standing homes, high-end riverfront residences, townhouses and apartments designed by Rothelowman and Point Architects with Eckersley Garden
Architecture and Tract Landscape. Recently cited as the world’s first Tesla Town, the houses include a Tesla Powerwall battery to store solar power from roof panels that will help reduce power bills. YarraBend has achieved the highest sustainable development rating as certified by the UDIA and initiatives include electric car charge points. Glenvill sales and marketing manager Nick Marinakis says the architect-designed homes are attracting families and empty
nesters because of the quality of the houses, YarraBend’s features, and its proximity to schools, transport and river parklands. “There’s extraordinary access to essential infrastructure at YarraBend. You will be a few minutes from top schools Xavier College, Carey Grammar, MLC and Trinity Grammar and you can walk to Alphington Grammar or Ivanhoe Grammar.” ● LIZ McLACHLAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Location, location From YarraBend it’s just 6.5 kilometres to the city and a few minutes’ walk to Alphington Station with a 20-minute city train commute. Some of Melbourne’s leading independent schools are within a few kilometres – MLC, Xavier College, Carey Grammar, Trinity Grammar and Ivanhoe Grammar. The Eastern Freeway is a few minutes away.

ood, lifestyle and wellness coach Andi Lew loves talking about health on TV and radio – and in her own kitchen. The bestselling author has just released her sixth book, Wellness Loading Loading, and runs cooking classes for people with food intolerances from the airy townhouse in St Kilda, where she lives with her six-year-old son, Beaudy. Personal touches and Beaudy’s toys add warmth to the modern, clean timber lines. Apart from the massive marble bench that she uses for cooking lessons, as a background for her videos and for entertaining, the main focus in the light-filled living space are colourful, abstract paintings by Andi herself. But they’ve got some stiff competition in the form of the sky views framed by high, expansive windows. A beachside soundtrack complements fair-weather skies. “In summer we can hear people screaming on the roller coasters at Luna Park,” Andi says. “I love falling asleep to the sound of people having fun.” ● LEEYONG SOO email@example.com » Wellness Loading Loading, $29.95 (Heart to Heart Publishing) andilew.com

What do you love about Chapel Street? Chapel Street is one of the hottest spots in Melbourne because of its vibrant culture, its countless boutique stores and dining options. There is so much to love about what’s in Chapel Street, but I think the most important thing for me is its location. It’s a couple of train stops away from the city if you need to get to work, it’s a short walk to the Botanic Gardens if you’re feeling like a run along the Yarra River, there are tons of trams to get you anywhere within the inner city, and it’s easily accessible to freeways and highways when you’re getting to the outer suburbs or countryside. ●

owner-occupiers. 88 Melbourne sales agent Christian Numa says every detail of the tower has been designed to satisfy owner occupiers, from the size, layout and finishes of its apartments to the five-star luxury of its onsite amenities and the proximity of Southbank entertainment. He says its buyers will overwhelmingly reside there when the building is completed in early 2019. “Not only will the vast majority live here, but they will have everything they need at home with the use of a double-height floor of recreational amenities featuring a 19-metre indoor lap pool, wine cellar and bar, private dining room, lounge spaces and outdoor garden terraces. “When they come home the concierge will greet them in the lobby, where there are stylish spaces to sit and relax and meet friends or colleagues with a fireplace for relaxing winter ambience. When they do go out they’ll only be a five-minute walk from the river promenade and Crown and a couple of minutes more from Southgate and the arts precinct.” With shallow floor plates, the 88 Melbourne apartments have optimal exposure to natural light and views of the city, Port Phillip Bay, Yarra River, Docklands and Albert Park. Most of the 252 apartments have two or three bedrooms and layouts feature larger living spaces zoned for socialising and privacy. The 13 upper levels are dedicated to three-bedroom residences, sub-penthouses and two full-floor penthouses. Rothelowman principal Chris Hayton says 88 Melbourne will change the way people view apartment living in Southbank. “It is both a collection of beautiful, individual residences as well as a vertical community for discerning owner-occupiers who see it as an opportunity to upgrade their lifestyle.” ● LIZ McLACHLAN email@example.com
ARTS CENTRE MELBOURNE (LEIG (LEI GH HENN HENNIING NGHAM HAM \ THE AG AGE)
ow one of Melbourne’s most desirable and sophisticated residential destinations, Southbank is increasingly attracting discerning owner-occupiers seeking gold-standard New York-style living with the ultimate in amenities both at home and within easy walking distance of the front door. The riverside district has shrugged off its urban renewal project genesis to become the focus for culture and entertainment in Melbourne, from high-brow musical recitals to blockbuster art exhibitions, concerts and a profusion of leading dining and leisure options. These unique advantages of Southbank’s lifestyle and location are fuelling continual growth, with its residential population tipped to rocket from a current 19,000 to 51,000 by 2036, as per City of Melbourne projections. Southbank residents can attend the best in ground-breaking theatre, dance and music from around the world at Australia’s largest performing arts centre, Arts Centre Melbourne, and critically acclaimed exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria next door; they can party, play, shop and dine at the Crown Entertainment Complex; promenade and meet friends for coffee, drinks or meals at Southgate, and work out or relax in a 38-hectare backyard across St Kilda Road – the Royal Botanic Gardens. Southbank Promenade, a 600-metre architect-designed riverside pedestrian and cycle boulevard, links these attractions, starting at the Arts Centre Melbourne and National Gallery of Victoria on St Kilda Road, taking in Southgate’s cafes, restaurants and boutiques and Queens Bridge Square to finish at the restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues of the Crown complex. The Yarra Promenade continues west in front of Crown, linking up with South Wharf’s river frontage and creating a three-kilometre trail from St Kilda Road to Fishermen’s Bend. Not forgetting, of course, that Melbourne’s CBD and its leading sports venues – the MCG, Melbourne Park, AAMI and Etihad Stadium – are all within a few minutes by tram or bicycle. Southbank’s prodigious bounty of culture and entertainment is part of the attraction for the increasing numbers of city professionals, families and downsizers selecting a Southbank address for an urban pad that provides everything they require at home or close by. This trend is prompting the development of higher-end owner-occupier-focused apartment projects offering larger residences. They include the $1-billion Australia 108, which will become Australia’s tallest building when completed in 2020, and 88 Melbourne, a $100-million, 60-storey tower designed by acclaimed architects Rothelowman in direct response to the rising demand for larger luxury Southbank apartments by

P U R E B AT H I M M E R S I O N
A free-standing bath is one of the best investments you can make in your wellness bathroom, and it comes in all sizes – from petite to extra-generous – to fit the space. Consider choosing one in a solid surface; warm to the touch, it’s also durable and easy to clean.
R E C O N N E C T W I T H N AT U R E
Leafy plants, natural light and hints of the outdoors help to reconnect you and your bathroom back to nature. Combine blond timber tones and a muted colour palette to create that sense of tranquil retreat. Add a large window for streaming sunlight.
A large, overhead rain shower allows you to fully immerse yourself and feel relaxed and revived. Add a set of body jets – they combine water and wellness to deliver a focused spray to restore the body and recharge the mind.
LESS IS MORE
Choose bathroom products with simple, flowing lines to bring a sense of calm. To create an especially soothing atmosphere, consider organic shapes with soft curves and gentle forms that connect you back to nature.
Add therapeutic salts to a warm bath to physically relax your body, candlelight to soothe and calm your mind, and replace old, worn towels with soft, fluffy ones. ●

opetoun Road, Toorak, is renowned for its trophy homes. Monumental and imposing, they are testament to wealth, power and prestige. Often they are behind towering, locked wrought-iron gates. Then there is this house. Unlike many of the neighbours, it doesn’t scream “look at me”, which is how the owners like it. The house is discreet, presenting a simple white-rendered wall to the street. It’s still a landmark, however you look at it. It just doesn’t draw attention to itself. The house, on about 2170 square metres, is surrounded by tall hedges and very private. The green of the garden and the north-south tennis court contrasts with the white mass of the building. The swimming pool is a big blue rectangle on the property’s northern side. The house, which has an unconventional floor plan across two levels, has 14 main rooms. They include an art gallery, formal entertainment rooms, two family rooms, designated bar, billiards room, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a retreat and two studies. Interior designers Hecker Guthrie were commissioned to update the 1980s build while maintaining its original scale and many original features. The extensive use of glass and retractable doors and dividers means the house can be divided to cater for large-scale entertaining or small-group functions. The scale of the place is breathtaking. From the mirrored entry foyer, as large as many lounge rooms, to the billiards room and its adjoining study, this is a house where families can spread their wings. The four-car garage has internal access to the foyer, while a covered area off the study provides an outdoor space and more greenery. Among the subtle and high-quality finishes are the soft grey linen curtains at many windows, the hardwood floors, timber-panelled ceilings and open fireplaces. Honed bluestone floors provide continuity from the outdoor entertainment area to the pool surrounds.

Carpeted stairs lead to the gallery and then to the formal sitting room and dining room. This large, open-plan area includes a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the manicured lawn and garden. Also in this part of the house is a room dedicated to a bar/wine-tasting space. The family room, with an open fireplace on one wall and a wall of built-in storage, has sliding doors to the covered outdoor entertainment area, which also connects to the meals area and kitchen. Glass sliders make this one big space open to the outside. In the kitchen, a four-metre stone bench separates the cooking area from the meals zone. Miele appliances are packed into the timber cabinetry, with plenty of storage above and below the stone benchtop. The kitchen, meals and family room all face north, providing welcome light and sun even on a winter’s day. The two outdoor entertainment areas are protected from the summer heat by a large cantilevered overhang that extends almost to the pool deck. All five bedrooms are on the first floor. Four have walk-in wardrobes, built-in desks and shower en suites. A children’s retreat is near the first bedroom. At the other end of the long hall, a study with built-ins could easily become the sixth bedroom. The parents’ suite occupies its own zone on the first floor. The main bedroom is not gigantic because the design of the house focuses on the living and entertainment areas. But it is still every bit as luxurious as you would expect in a house of this size and type. A sliding door opens the bedroom to the north-facing balcony. Another slider leads to the walk-in wardrobe and dressing room. This, in turn, connects to a luxurious en suite with double shower at one end, bath at the other and double vanity in between. This is a house with the lot – and without compromise. ● MARIA HARRIS email@example.com

ARMADALE \ 19 MOORHOUSE STREET Renovated with attention to detail and preserving its original features, this Edwardian house was built in 1923 and is a proud local landmark. It has a classic facade, with gable ends offset by layers of lush greenery around double-glazed windows. The location is close to shops on High Street, elite schools and public transport. Inside, the wide entry hall leads to a sitting room to the left. It has woollen carpet, a high, coffered ceiling, large windows and a fireplace. Next door, the formal dining area shows off period details, including a glass pendant light and a bench seat along the window. The kitchen has Caesarstone benchtops, European appliances, white cabinetry and a central island bench. Opposite is the meals area, which leads to the north-facing family room. It has herringbone parquetry floors, a fireplace and french doors, which open to paving and well-tended lawn. The bedrooms are upstairs. The main is spacious, with a walk-in wardrobe and modern en suite with double vanity and glass-framed shower. The garden was designed by Rick Eckersley. Grass-edged paths lead to a vine-draped pergola for summer-time dining. Other features of the house include two studies, a double garage, intercom entry and automatic gates. ● SUZAN DELIBASIC

It is inspiring to see a renovation that has done a careful job of nurturing the heritage characteristics of a house built more than a century ago. This lovely Edwardian house is in a cul-de-sac a few minutes’ walk from Central Park. The interior is bright white with a mix of carpet and polished jarrah floors. The main bedroom is zoned well away from the living spaces at the rear, near a bathroom and the formal lounge area at the front of the house. This living room has decorative cornices, a ceiling rose and an open fireplace. There’s another open fireplace in a smaller bedroom beyond. From here, the timber floors extend through a central study and sky-lit Caesarstone kitchen to an open-plan family and meals area with wood fire. Floor-to-ceiling windows curve around two sides of this large living space. Rounding out the floor plan are two bedrooms tucked away off a short hallway at the rear. They have built-in wardrobes and book-end a modern bathroom and the laundry. There’s off-street parking in the side driveway. ● JULIAN HEALEY
40 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ SEPTEMBER 7, 2016
SURREY HILLS \ 47 SUFFOLK ROAD It’s the new kid on the block: a smart, solar-planned villa that replaced a traditional interwar house in Melbourne’s leafy east. Its design accepts our climate (most rooms face north) and the casual pattern of suburban life. Rather than a front garden, there is a double carport and visitor parking. The adjacent double garage has been planned to offer further accommodation. An entrance hall leads into the grand feature of this family house – a spectacular, cathedral-ceilinged living room. More than 12 metres long and with its roof trusses exposed, it combines liveability and architectural drama. Australian mahogany flooring in the main rooms is a rare and unifying feature, paired well with the all-white decor. Its north wall offers access to sitting and dining terraces. The dining section, with its retractable canopy, is a year-round amenity. Service areas – cloakroom, laundry, formal dining area – are grouped along the south side. The kitchen and walk-in pantry are equipped with Poliform cabinetry, Caesarstone benchtops and Siemens ovens. The rear of the house overlooks a native garden. The main suite here has a dressing room and a bathroom with mountain views. Two double bedrooms share a bathroom. This area is well served by public transport and is close to sought-after public and private schools. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

In one of Armadale’s best pockets, this house has an enormous amount of entertainment space inside and out. Built in the 1930s, the very private house is on 670 square metres. Behind a lush front garden, entry is into a wide hallway and an open living room with a fireplace. The spacious formal dining room is next door. The generosity of these rooms is accentuated by high ceilings. Carpeted floors give way to tiles in the family area at the back. There’s a practical kitchen with plenty of storage and, down a step, an informal living area with polished timber floors. The north-west-facing walls are made up of windows and glass doors, letting in lots of light and offering views of the landscaped garden. This level also comprises a family bathroom, powder room, spacious laundry, two storerooms and the main bedroom. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, one that could be an alternative main as it has an en suite and walk-in wardrobe. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

This two-storey Victorian house has been marvellously renovated. Bright, modern spaces pay homage to its heritage past while articulating the clean lines and characteristics of contemporary design. The facade of white-painted weatherboards, cast-iron lacework and corrugated iron roof is picture perfect. There are dark polished floorboards throughout the ground floor. Two bedrooms near the entry have built-in wardrobes. The third is set up as a study, with shelves and a built-in desk. A sky-lit bathroom is next along. The hall ends in an air-conditioned open-plan living and dining area and kitchen. Bifold doors extend this spacious hub out to a large courtyard with a water feature. The kitchen has white Caesarstone benches, white cabinetry and an integrated fridge. The laundry is hidden behind. The main bedroom is upstairs and bathed in sunlight from a huge, north-facing sliding window. A walk-through wardrobe and study lead to an en suite with twin vanities and a freestanding tub. ● JULIAN HEALEY
Once a petite 1960s relic, this house was revamped in 2003 to befit its picturesque position opposite the Anderson Park tennis courts. It’s solid, spacious and full of the thoughtful details that ease the chaos of family life. The two-storey, 31-square house has three communal zones, the showpiece of which is the enormous, blackbutt-floored living, kitchen and dining area. It opens to a large deck, which steps down into the landscaped garden. The living area has stone bench seating flanking a Heat & Glo gas log fireplace. In the white stone kitchen, the Falcon 1200-millimetre range and long island bench are handsome below ceiling vaults with clerestory windows. The beige-carpeted library has bookshelves, and there’s a playroom that opens to the deck. Four first-floor double bedrooms, the main with shower en suite, are supplemented by a ground-floor bedroom. There are chic, mosaic-trimmed bathrooms upstairs and down. ● ALISON BARCLAY

SOURCE \ REIV *Due to the very low volume of auctions in some suburbs the clearance rates are likely to show a high degree of volatility.
BALWYN NORTH \ 7 GRIEVE STREET It’s a paradoxical thing, this house. Looks like an austere box; is, in fact, warm, amusing, ready to delight visitors and brimming with the vibrant personalities of its owners. The three-level, copper-clad house was built in 2009 and is zoned for Balwyn High and handy to Greythorn Park and village. A high wall and gated driveway make the front lawn useful for play or relaxation. Best of all, its communal areas open to a north-facing, covered barbecue terrace where one can watch swimmers in the glass-sided saltwater pool. The house opens with an ivory-tiled hall. Turn left to the study, which has french doors to the front garden. Across the hall, the theatre has a projector and pull-down screen. The tiled open-plan area, bathed in sunshine, has full-length windows and glass panels that slide back to open to the terrace. Behind the dining area, the Calacatta marble kitchen has a Miele suite – steam, microwave and conventional ovens, a cooktop and dishwasher – and a walk-in pantry. Three steps above is the living room, with polished floorboards. There’s a poolside bathroom. Take the stairs down to the terracotta wine cellar. Upstairs, three hardwood-floored double bedrooms have wardrobes and share a bathroom. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, en suite and balcony. Soak up the city view from the corridor. ● ALISON BARCLAY
