+ Barre Fitness
Barre is a low-impact fitness class which uses movement inspired by ballet, yoga, and Pilates. The ballet barre is used for balance while doing exercises which focus on strength training and contracting a specific set of muscles. We will do lots of reps combined with small range-of-motion movements. The goal is to lengthen and sculpt muscles, to increase flexibility, and to improve body mechanics.
The Barre class is demanding and requires focus, and it will help you face the rest of your day calmly, confidently, and healthfully. The Barre class is set to upbeat music and starts with a short warm-up sequence followed by upper-body exercises, push-ups and planks. Light weights may be used. The class also includes ballet barre or floor exercises which focus on the lower body, followed by some stretching.
No dance experience is required. All types of people take Barre classes. Modifications are offered, and students are challenged but work at their own pace. Safety and correct positioning are very important. The Barre class is done barefoot or sometimes with socks, and please bring a yoga or exercise mat if you have one. If not, there are some mats available at the studio.
