Barre class is a full-body ballet inspired workout that blends different exercise styles together including ballet, Pilates, and yoga.
Barre class uses the barre, a mat, and sometimes other equipment including free weights, exercise bands, and exercise balls. The class will target multiple different areas of your body including arms, legs, core, and glutes. The exercises are set at a slow pace and aim to build strength and flexibility. It is a low-impact workout, so you don’t need to worry about jumping. All levels of experience are welcome!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BARRE?
The benefits of Barre include improved muscle definition, greater flexibility and better posture. Barre class is inspired by ballet, but you don’t need to be a dancer to come to class.
Wear something you feel comfortable moving in, and bring sticky socks if you have them or bare feet work just fine!
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT TEACHING BARRE?
My favorite part about teaching Barre classes is definitely the clients! I love helping people feel good and find what works for them. Everybody is different and will move differently, but when done properly this workout provides confidence and results. There’s something in it for everyone!
