New Class: BARRE!

We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new studio location this summer, and with it, an exciting addition to our class schedule: Barre! Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or new to our community, we invite you to explore this dynamic, transformative workout that will elevate your fitness routine.

What is Barre?
Barre is a fitness class that combines elements of ballet, Pilates, and yoga, creating a unique and highly effective workout. Named after the ballet barre used in classes, this method focuses on low-impact, high-intensity movements designed to strengthen and tone your body.
What to Expect in a Barre Class

In a typical Barre class, you can expect a series of exercises that target your core, arms, legs, and glutes. The class usually begins with a warm-up, followed by sequences that use the barre for balance while performing small, controlled movements and isometric holds. These exercises are designed to build muscle endurance and improve flexibility. The class often ends with mat work and a cool-down to stretch out and relax the muscles.

Benefits of Barre
Full-Body Workout: Barre classes are designed to engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously, providing a comprehensive workout that targets all areas of the body.
Improved Posture: The emphasis on alignment and core strength helps enhance your posture both during workouts and in everyday life.
Increased Flexibility: Combining ballet and yoga elements, Barre helps improve flexibility, making it a perfect complement to your yoga practice.
Muscle Endurance: The small, repetitive movements and static holds challenge your muscles, increasing their endurance and strength.
Low-Impact: Barre is gentle on the joints, making it suitable for all fitness levels, including those recovering from injuries.

Starting this summer, you can join us for Barre classes at our new studio location. The classes will be available every Thursday at 11:00 AM and Friday at 9:15 AM.
