A Class For Everyone

Our Classes

Barre Base

Barre Base fuses ballet barre (French for 'bar') conditioning exercises with elements of pilates, yoga, and functional, body-weight training. Although the classes are based in dance movement, dance experience isn't a necessity to take part in the classes at all! Each person can be challenged at his or her own level in class without affecting anyone else’s workout. The moves are low impact but include high-intensity intervals, bodyweight strength work, followed by effective stretching which functions as your recovery.

Who is this class for?
This class is suitable for anybody. There are plenty of levelled options for beginners, however plenty of opportunities to push yourself if you are ready.

Beginners Barre Class

For those who are looking for a slower paced class, but still want to feel the benefits of body-weight training at the barre, Beginners Barre is for you.

The class takes a slow and steady approach to our barre technique. Your body will still get a wonderful strength based workout and stretch, however, the movements will be slower and more easy to follow for those who are newer to the barre method, or prefer a slightly more relaxed approach to working out! The class is entirely static and low impact, yet that doesn't mean your body will not be challenged. 

Who is this class for?
This class is suitable for those who are new to barre classes, or for those who prefer controlled and composed conditioning movements. This class is still challenging, however, it is easy to follow due to its slower pace.

Who is this class for?

Stretch and Lengthen caters to athletes wanting to increase their mobility, but also to those who may lead a more sedentary lifestyle due to their jobs or certain circumstances! Many of our regulars, from all classes, have noticed improvements in their flexibility within weeks of coming to classes, which they have said has helped with many day to day activities around the house, and at the gym or in their running, and even simply, with their self-confidence! 

Barre Stretch

Barre Stretch is a 60-minute class focusing purely on mobility and flexibility. Barre Stretch focuses on dynamic stretching, which is the process of actively moving your body through a safe, full range of motion with the intent of improving the joint's functional capacity for movement! Therefore, we continue to move between stretches to ensure the body stays warm to aid mobility. 

Our stretch class is very complimentary to many other sports and recreational hobbies as it helps increase one's mobility and flexibility which decreases the risk of injury. Stretching enables your body to recognise 'correct' posture by lengthening tight muscles that pull areas of the body away from their intended position. Stretching also increases blood and nutrient supply to muscles, thereby assisting in reducing muscle soreness!
