Fitness for All
Barre classes are growing in popularity due to their ability to sculpt long, lean muscles, with minimum impact on the joints. Be prepared to shake and sweat, but rest assured that all movements are performed at a controlled pace, with an emphasis on safety and correct alignment.
My Barre Fitness classes fuse elements of classical ballet, aerobics, and traditional strength training to provide an impact-free full-body workout. Rather than working under a Barre franchise, I create my own choreography which means I can bring you a completely unique experience.
What to Expect
Working at the barre (or back of a chair!), in the center, and on yoga mats you will progress through a series of exercises that strengthen the core, improve your balance, and develop long, toned muscles.
I will briefly demonstrate each exercise and talk you through the key teaching points before we try it, and will complete the first set with you so you can follow along. I'll then observe and offer feedback while you complete a second set, ensuring everyone is working safely.
