InterPlay at the Convent


Connect, Play, Create

Sunday May 4th, 1pm - 4pm


Free up some creative space to surprise and inspire yourself, and experience more of your full repertoire!


The easy, incremental approach of InterPlay invites us into movement, story, voice, connection and stillness. Its simple yet transformative practices take us into the joy of the moment, in communication with ourselves and others. No experience is needed.


Cost: $60 / $50 conc.



About the facilitators


Steph and Kate met through their InterPlay practice, and discovered a shared curiosity in the connections between play, body wisdom and creative self-care.






Kate Barnett


is an InterPlay facilitator, a teacher of the Alexander Technique, and a Yoga teacher whose work is also deeply inspired by the approach of BodyMind Centering. She loves the way her different disciplines interweave to support each other, and how improvisation brings us alive to the whole. Kate is based at the Abbotsford Convent WellBeing Centre, teaching from the Alexander Studio and also from One Heart Yoga and Meditation.





Stephanie Gesling


lives in Reservoir and grew up in country NSW. She is an InterPlay facilitator, a performance artist, and a vocal play enthusiast. In her spare time she does project, events and web content management, waters plants and sings in a choir. Steph is interested in curating play for people who are working toward creating a better world, and in learning how to thrive under pressure.

About InterPlay


InterPlay is about play. It is an active, creative way to unlock the wisdom of the body. Through powerful, practical ideas and a system of practices grounded in storytelling, movement, voice and stillness, you gain access to your own body wisdom - what works best for you, what gives you purpose, what makes you fully alive.


InterPlay was founded by Cynthia Winton-Henry and Phil Porter 25 years ago and is now a global movement dedicated to ease, play, fun and the potential we have to expand the possibilities of our lives.











We are grateful to be gathering in this beautiful space.


One Heart is a community-oriented sanctuary for deep and authentic practice. One Heart offer yoga and meditation classes, workshops, retreats and yoga therapy sessions.


Within all of us is a natural ground of being that is already awake. We discover this inner presence through the breath, the heart, the body, the moment. This luminous presence is the One Heart that resides in us all. As we build a community of the heart, we can engage with the world with wisdom and love.

From the main entrance gate of the Convent veer right and go past the Bakery.

To the right of the Bakery you will see the front door of the WellBeing Wing.

Go up the stairs, and at the end of this floor turn right, you will find One Heart.








Getting to the Convent


By Bike or walking: One Heart is right next to beautiful Capital City walking and bike trail.


Via Train: Catch the Epping or Hurstbridge line train and get off at Victoria Park station. It is a 10 minute walk east along Johnston Street, left into Clarke Street and right into St. Helier’s Street.


Via Bus: Catch the Doncaster 200 Route Bus (200,201, 205, 207; do not get the 203). These buses leave from the city in Lonsdale Street and go along Lygon Street, then along Elgin and Johnston streets. Get off at Clarke Street near the overhead footbridge.




There is a car park opposite the Convent which has parking pay by the hour. Otherwise there is very limited 1, 2 and 4 hour parking in the surrounding streets. Allow at least 10 minutes to find a park if parking in the side streets.
