What is Barre?

Barre is where fun meets fitness drawing inspiration from yoga, pilates and functional movement. It's low-impact so can be gentle on the joints but its high-intensity is designed to strengthen, lengthen, and tone your muscles while improving flexibility and posture. At its core, barre focuses on small, controlled movements to build a "barre burn". It can sometimes be practiced at a ballet barre or floor based using resistance bands and balls.

Tips for Getting Started

Now that you know what to expect from your first barre class, here are some tips to help you make the most of your experience

  • Listen to your body and honour any limitations. If something doesn't feel right, don't hesitate to modify or take a break. Your safety and well-being always come first.

  • Embrace the Shake: It's perfectly normal to feel your muscles shaking during certain movements. Embrace the shake as a sign that your muscles are building strength with each repetition.

  • Stay Hydrated: Be sure to drink plenty of water before, during, and after your barre class to stay hydrated and fuel your body for optimal performance.

  • Have fun! Barre is not only a great workout but also a chance to connect with your body, challenge yourself, and celebrate your progress along the way.
