I had my first Beginner Barre Class, and it was nothing short of a great experience. You walk into a studio that is calming to the senses which sets you mentally and physically ready to engage. Cathleen instructs with great expertise; she teaches you proper alignment and encourages you throughout the workout. She is a “Master” in her field. The end stretches with the mantra music put such a Zen closure to incorporate a complete mind, body, soul experience. I'm looking forward to my next class!!
