We offer CLEAVE as a way to build strength and stamina in all muscle groups, including the core, legs, arms, and glutes. This ballet barre fitness approach blends elements from ballet, pilates, and yoga–with no dance experience required! You’ll use a ballet barre, ball, hand weights, and resistance band to get big results from small movements. Body positioning is key as you pulse through repetitive motions designed to leave your muscles fatigued and shaking. Your joints will thank you for the added support they’ll receive from stronger, toned muscles!
Barre fitness is a great complement to our yoga classes. We’ve found it to be beneficial to athletes (including experienced yogis) who are at risk of over-stretching. And, its low-impact movements are often a gentler way for people with arthritis, joint replacement, and joint sensitivity to develop muscle strength, endurance, and balance.
Please register for class 30 minutes prior to the start of class - due to COVID precautions we need some extra time to ensure the space has been prepared for students. If you miss the deadline please contact us to ensure there's space for you in the room - email@example.com
Wear a mask the entire time you are in the studio, and on premises.
You'll often need a yoga mat, resistance ball, band and hand weights for class. If you don't have those items handy, a beach towel, soup cans, and folded towel or blanket work just as well. We normally have them to use at the studio, but as mentioned above we're being extra careful right now. Blocks, Straps, Resistance Balls, Bands and Mats may be purchased in the studio for a nominal fee. We do have hand weights for common use.
Arrive at the studio 5-10 minutes early so we can say hello to one another, hear what you'd like to work on in class and you can learn any special instructions or modifications that might be useful for you during practice.
