What is Barre Pilates?

Barre classes integrate elements of Pilates, ballet, cardio and strength training to create a fun and uplifting workout. The classes are designed to emphasise the correct biomechanics of movement; isolating small muscle groups within a limited range of movement to improve posture and increase strength, flexibility, stamina and dynamic stability. The classes incorporate light weights for improving arm definition These classes are low impact but you will see results – more toned arms due to the incorporation of light weights, a lengthened definition and toned glutes and thighs. No dance experience is required and it’s a great workout for men and women.

Barre Pilates is slower paced with a more balletic influence and incorporating more Pilates based moves. Still expect to be challenged though!
