ABOUT BARRE

A barre class mixes elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and functional training, and the moves are choreographed to motivating music. In each energizing workout, you'll use a ballet barre and exercise equipment such as mini-balls, hand-weights and bands to tone, slim and stretch your entire body.
 
Our CB Barre class is rooted in the fundamentals of Core Barre - Smart Movement®, a system of movement designed to create strength, flexibility, and a balanced body. All of our instructors are certified in the Core Barre-Smart Movement® method.
 
Smart Movement® is simply moving the body with focus, precision, and strength not only in the physical realm but also in context of general well being. The movements exercise our bodies in such a manner that does not cause injuries or further promote imbalances.  Rather, it strengthens and re-programs the body to move in the way it was naturally designed to.  The movements in CORE BARRE exercises are designed to be effortless, graceful, and energy generating, creating a meaningful and purposeful rhythm that is attuned to our bodies and its surroundings.  Therefore, the goal with CORE BARRE is to create awareness with mind and body for Smart Movement®.
 
The CORE BARRE System of Smart Movement® is suitable for healthy individuals of all fitness levels, regardless of age or ability.
