Get to know a little more about Barre Base teacher, Miss Caoimhe Finn.
This summer, Barre Base is running classes in Queenstown. These classes will run from January 16th – February 11th.
Here at Barre Base, we often receive feedback about how our classes have helped our clients with their running training. We thought we’d delve into some of the reasons why barre classes and running are so complimentary.
We all know how motivating the group-fitness environment is, but for many of, we struggle to get along to classes regularly!
If you want to work on your barre strength and fitness from home, or hone that technique, here are a few moves you can easily do in the living room. Just use the back of a chair or a bench for balance, or take the workout to the centre of your lounge.
We often say in class that the longer you come to Barre Base, the harder it becomes! Don’t be fooled, you’ll be getting fitter and stronger week to week, but you will also become savvier! Barre is conscious exercise — it requires mindfulness and an attention to detail. Once you learn how to work, you can push to further increase your strength, mobility, and grace.
I started doing Barre Base because I was sick of being kept out of the surf by injuries and back pain sustained in more traditional style gym classes. Over the four or so months I’ve been doing the classes, it's been a completely different story. I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in my core strength, I’m more flexible and even my balance is better.
