Currently available in live stream, Barre is a ballet barre-based fitness class that uses a combination of postures inspired by ballet, yoga and Pilates to improve posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increase flexibility and reduce stress.
Live Stream tips – In your own space, you have to be creative!! The back of a chair, a table, the kitchen counter, whatever works in your space. You’re only limited by your imagination! Light handheld weights and balls are also usually used to help “bring the burn” during all those reps. Once again, you need to be creative. If you don’t have weights of your own, you could use soup cans, water bottles or something similar. You get the picture!
The ballet barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Light handheld weights and balls are also used to help “bring the burn” during all those reps. Expect to be on the floor (using mats) for targeted core work.
Practiced in a warm room, each class is 60 minutes long.
