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.
Why yes you CAN do a barre class online! ;)
Please register for class 30 minutes prior to the start of class - if you miss the deadline please contact us for zoom information - firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll often need a yoga mat, hand weights, a barre and resistance ball for class. If you don't have those items handy, a beach towel, soup cans, a kitchen chair or counter, and a folded up towel or blanket work nearly as well!
Log in about 5 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 props you might need for class.
