Set to become the latest craze in Sydney, Burlates, a new form of fitness that is a cross between burlesque and pilates.
Burlates creator Rachel St James, the Dita Von Teese of the southern hemisphere and a former Penthouse pet, said it combined pilates' core strength and flexibility with sexy shimmies and hip rolls to create a glam workout fit for the boudoir.
It's more spiritual than other sexy fitness crazes like pole dancing.
"My own philosophy, influenced by yoga and pilates, is that women are too hard on ourselves and we need to lose that," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.
"We need to find a mental confidence within our own body shape. Pilates is quite a disciplined form of exercise and burlesque gives it a sexy edge," she added.
