Private Barre Classes
Barre is a unique fitness class with a growing popularity, and it’s easy to see why. Using elements of ballet, Pilates, yoga and strength training Barre workouts are fun and effective.
The Ballet Barre Element
Just as the word ‘Barre’ implies, exercises are performed with the use of a ballet barre, combined with mat exercises. The ballet barre is used to balance oneself while a specific set of muscles are worked. Don’t be surprised if you recognize a few graceful moves like plies and pirouettes!
Benefits of the Barre Workout
My Barre workouts motivate you though fun dance inspired workouts with uplifting music. The Barre is designed to give you a dancer-like physique through movement and stretching, with focus on one’s posture and core conditioning.
High repetitions of small range-of-motion movements are also incorporated into the workouts. Exercises are easy to follow and rhythmic pulses are used instead of high impact. You can expect a cardio component but with less sweat that will elevate the heart rate and burn calories, while shaping the body.
My private barre classes are designed to effectively strengthen tone and balance the entire body. I offer fat burning workouts that integrate the use of the ballet barre, light weights and various props. You will focus on form and precision while performing small isometric movements as I emphasize basic alignment, foundation, and specific muscle actions. Each class includes several highly effective sequences of toning and resistance exercises with an emphasis on the core, arms, seat and thighs. Each strength section of this workout is followed by a stretching section to create long, lean muscle without bulk. These are challenging, no impact classes that require focus and precision for maximum results.
