The Graceful Strength of Barre

Barre is a ballet-inspired workout that uses the ballet barre, along with elements from Pilates, dance, yoga, and functional training to sculpt and strengthen your body. The exercises focus on isometric movements and emphasize the use of muscles in a way that can lead to improved balance, posture, and functional strength.

Balance Barre Classes

In Balance Barre classes, we use a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while performing exercises that focus on isometric strength training. Our classes also incorporate light handheld weights to bring in an element of strength training alongside high reps of small range-of-motion movements.

The Benefits of Barre

Practicing Barre comes with numerous benefits:

  1. Improved strength and muscle tone: Barre exercises target every muscle group, leading to improved strength and muscle tone.
  2. Enhanced balance and posture: The isometric movements in Barre improve balance and posture, contributing to a lean, tall appearance.
  3. Increased flexibility: Elements from ballet and yoga contribute to enhanced flexibility.
  4. Low-impact workout: Barre is gentle on the joints, making it suitable for all fitness levels and ages.
  5. Stress reduction: The rhythmic movements and focus required during a Barre class can help reduce stress and promote a sense of wellbeing.
