This week we celebrate Barre Base’s fourth birthday. Some of you have been on this journey with us from the start, but so many of you have only recently joined us.
Here at Barre Base, we often receive feedback about how our classes have helped our clients with their running training. So, we thought we would share some of the reasons why our running clients gain such great results!
We asked our barre and yoga teacher, Phoebe Begg, about her thoughts on yoga practice and teaching. From professional ballerina to yogi, Phoebe shares how her practice has helped her stay better connected to her mind and body.
At Barre Base, we're obsessed with the core. Almost everything we do requires you to think about how your deep core is activating, but also how it's relaxing. Here are a few ways you can strengthen your core. 
People work out for many different reasons. Be it to gain physical or mental strength, overcome fears, prevent further injury, to meet new people, or to simply escape their busy lives for an hour!
Pelvic floor dysfunction in women is hugely common — whether they’ve given birth or otherwise! It can develop from childbirth, incorrect exercise under load or ageing. But the good news is, there are numerous ways to strengthen and restore your pelvic floor.
The benefits of flexible and mobile extend to so many facets of life. But how do we get there? We need joint mobility and muscular flexibility.

Whether you had your last baby six months ago or six years ago, you know well the profound changes that pregnancy brings to our bodies. By the time you hold your sweet little one in your arms—regardless of how you gave birth—your body has already been through so much. And as if that wasn’t enough, somehow the journey of motherhood is only just beginning.

We get it, It can be hard to exercise in Winter. The cooler weather brings illness, the blues and hibernation. Yet, exercise provides the body with everything it needs to negate these winter blues.
All of a sudden, especially in fitness circles, we're hearing a lot about magnesium. People are now supplementing their bodies — but often they don't know exactly why. Here is the low-down on magnesium; what is is, and why some of us may need to add more to our diets.
This is such a pretty salad! It is fresh, healthy and very easy to make. This salad also travels well, so is great to take to picnics or to potluck dinners as the salad marinates in its dressing in time.
Over the last 20 years, the predominant mode of working has become computer-based in developed countries. This has resulted in many people spending their workday sitting. Sedentary roles are known to cause muscular-skeletal issues and mental fatigue.
In honesty, this salad was a 'get rid of my leftover veges from the week' salad. However, I was pleasantly surprised, not only by its resourcefulness but its taste!
