Fitness for All
Barre classes are growing in popularity due to their ability to sculpt long, lean muscles, with minimum impact on the joints. While my Personal Training and classic Barre Fitness classes remain on hold, my Barre on the Ball class will be going virtual as of September 14th 2020
Barre on the Ball
My Virtual Barre on the Ball classes are a conditioning class like no other. By combining exercises from the official PBT syllabus with elements of more traditional stability ball training, this class will challenge your core, balance, alignment, and posture like never before. These classes are recommended for those with an intermediate level of fitness, but you do not need any dance experience to take part.
What to Expect
Working at home with large stability, or Swiss balls, as well as with smaller Pilates balls, you will progress through a series of exercises that strengthen the core, improve your balance, and develop long, toned muscles.
I will demonstrate each exercise and talk you through the key teaching points before you try it; I will then observe, talk you through the sequence, and offer feedback while you do the hard work! This means there will be short pauses throughout the class while you watch and learn, but you can still expect to feel the burn in those legs bums and tums!
