It is a low impact class utilizing the ballet barre and other training techniques for strength, flexibility and alignment. This is guaranteed to be a unique, fun, inspiring and highly effective class that fills up quickly with waiting lists – register early!!

This is a full body workout which uses a combination of postures inspired by ballet, yoga and Pilates. The 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 are used to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.
