Essentially, most barre-based classes combine elements of ballet, pilates, yoga and even dance and functional training. The sequence of movements are choreographed to upbeat and motivating music. In each energizing and targeted workout, you'll use barre and exercise equipment such as small hand weight and mini-balls to sculpt, slim and stretch your entire body. Barre's tiny motions, reps and intentional squeezing and pulsing are designed to fatigue muscles to failure by exhausting the muscles and forcing them to tone. The fast pace and variety of exercises makes the time spent in class go by very quickly. This is a group exercise to enjoy with others.
