Barre Body Workout
Pace: Moderate to quick
This Barre Body class incorporates ballet-inspired strength exercises, designed to sculpt and strengthen core and stabilizer muscles (those muscles that tend to shrink from too much sitting and not enough moving). We use small, tight movements to protect the joints, working out in various ballet positions, as well as incorporating traditional fitness positions (squats, lunges, planks etc). We incorporate light dumbbells, balls, gliders and resistance bands sculpting arms, abs, legs, glutes - your whole body. Modifications are offered for each exercise.
Class structure can include an aerobic style warm up, then upper body exercises, followed by barre work, then core work on the mat. Yoga stretches are done in between exercises and at the end of class. You will feel stronger and leaner after these fun classes! No tutu required...
