What is it?
Upbeat & uplifting this class is designed to make you feel glorious inside and out! Based on an authentic Barre class fused with a functional movement approach, it’s low impact, full body workout. Inspired by the Lotte Berk method and set to a playlist, it combines elements from Yoga, Pilates, dance conditioning, and strength endurance training. It’s an intelligent workout that will center your mind, mobilise your joints, empower your soul, lift your spirits and leave you feeling glorious, graceful & strong!
We incorporate small props, light hand weights & stretchy bands to add external load and resistance to work arms, thighs, seat and abdominals. Bodyweight is used, precise isometric movements, holds and pulses that target muscles and mobile the body. You’ll discover moving just an inch is all it takes to feel the shake and the burn!
Hands on adjustments are given through out class to ensure you’re working in your best form and so that you are safely getting the most out of each exercise.
Who is it suitable for?
Beginners are always welcome. There’s a variation for all levels in class, from the first time barre goer to the most advanced student. Modifications can be taken at any time and extra challenges will be given to ensure you’re working at your fullest potential.
If you’re looking for an empowering workout that’s intelligently paced, mindfully constructed and with a great playlist, come and try a class! As with starting anything new your first class will likely feel challenging and we’ll encourage you to stick with it. Come with an open mind and willingness to try something new!
This class is aimed at adults (18+) with a reasonable level of fitness.
Develop the grace to stand taller and to become stronger in both body and mind. You’ll get a great class without putting excessive stress on your joints. This method will help you develop bone density, work muscles, improve balance and increase your mobility and strength.
More than ever before we need to find on outlet in our life to focus on our wellbeing, body and mind. Taking part in a mindful movement practice like barre will have effects in life outside the studio such as increased mood, better concentration, relaxation and posture.
