This class will work your body in an efficient and dynamic way with the aim of toning, increasing flexibility, and alignment awareness whilst developing heightened coordination and muscle control.
Focus will be on targeting muscle groups around the legs, hips, glutes, and core. As the class is practiced on the floor, the body will not feel the usual effects of gravity - making it a very fluid practice.
This barre class - without the barre - is suitable for all levels. Set to some vibrant, upbeat music, the different sequences will give you a strong workout through constant flow and variety of movements.
A mat or at least a towel is strongly recommended.WHAT TO WEAR
- Just like for yoga, comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely with no restriction are recommended.
- This class is mostly done bare foot, however students can wear dance shoes or specially designed ballet barre grip socks available at most dance outfitters.WHAT TO BRING
- Please bring water and a sweat towel if you would like.
- Due to some exercises that take place on the floor, a yoga or fitness mat is recommended for safety.

*Please note that there is limited mobile phone reception at the studios. If you need to contact the instructor, please do so at least 20 minute before the start of class. Since our teachers will be busy checking in students with their personal smartphones starting 15 minutes before class, please send a text as opposed to calling as they will most likely not be able to take a call. No communication will be possible after the start time of class.
Please notify your instructor if you have undergone any recent surgeries or are currently experiencing any physical injuries. While yoga has many very beneficial health effects, we want to know how to best work with each of our student’s individual restrictions. Please consult a doctor if you have any personal concerns about practicing yoga or fitness.
