What is Barre
Barre Base fuses elements of ballet barre (French for 'bar') conditioning exercises with pilates, yoga, dance, 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.
Barre training builds flexibility, strength, speed, agility, balance, mental focus and endurance, which might explain why barre fitness has increased in popularity worldwide. Despite what many may believe, barre class is not just for people with dance training. The benefits of barre training extend to those wanting to kick-start their fitness journey, through to elite athletes needing to further condition, strengthen and mobilise their bodies. So, if you are apprehensive about giving our classes a go, please remember that they do cater for all ages, stages, sexes and physical abilities.
