Pilates @ the Barre classes utilize the ballet barre for standing exercises, as well as small props (bands, weights, bars, etc.).
The sequence may include weight bearing on the wrists, spine flexion (rounding the back), spine extension (arching the back) and spine rotation (twisting the back). Clients with special conditions that contraindicate these movements should contact the studio in advance to assess/determine modifications and exercise substitutions in advance of attending class.
Equipment required: a chair, counter or stable surface to hold onto as a barre and a mat/rug/equivalent that you would like to use for class. Additional equipment that can be incorporated if you have it: resistance bands, fitness barre ball, magic circle, foam roller, weights less than 5 lbs, gliders, we are open to requests!
