BARRE 

Our classes use the fundamental Whole Body Barre™ approach, which combines dance, Pilates, and yoga movements to stretch, lengthen and tone the whole body. We use plié, balancé, relevé, and other ballet movements aimed at building a dancer's physique. We limit our class size to ensure each student receives one-on-one attention. All equipment is provided at the studio.  

Whole Body Barre—All Levels: Ideal for beginners and intermediate students, these classes are set to music and use Pilates, yoga and ballet exercises to strengthen and lengthen your body. The classes also often integrate light free weights, exercise balls, glider and/or resistance bands to strengthen the body and give you a full-body workout.  

Whole Body Barre—Sculpt: These classes take the all-levels format up a notch by incorporating free weights and weighted balls. While the core components of these classes are fast-paced repetitious ballet movements, anyone, including those without a dance background, can easily keep up thanks to step-by-step instruction. 

Whole Body Barre—Intense: Using the fundamentals of the all- levels format, these classes increase set reps and posture-hold times to ensure full muscle burnout and allow for an extended recovery period at the end of class. This class is not recommended for women past their first trimester of pregnancy.  

Whole Body Barre—Cardio: Fast paced classes that elevate the heart rate by mixing cardio in with classical barre exercises. This class is not recommended for women past their first trimester of pregnancy.  

YOGA 

Whole Body Barre's yoga classes are a breath of fresh air. They begin by focusing on the fundamentals, while synching breath and movement together to build a stronger body. We also offer a few higher-level classes for longer-term practitioners. We welcome all skill levels. Yoga mats are provided at the studio, but students are welcome to bring their own. 

Whole Body Yoga—Vinyasa I: These classes rejuvenate your mind and body while increasing strength, balance, and flexibility. These basic classes build upon fundamental poses while moving at a slower pace. The instructor gently challenges students to synchronize breath and movement. Students of all levels are welcome. 

Whole Body Yoga—Vinyasa II: A faster paced class that uses your breath to support and guide you through each pose. You will be challenged to move and breathe in more elaborate sequences to strengthen your core and allow you to work on inversions or more intermediate poses in a safe and fun environment. This class enhances strength training and will help you achieve your fitness goals as you also benefit from the soothing, meditative mindfulness of yoga. 

Whole Body Yoga—All Levels: Translated literally, yoga means "union." In these classes you will explore the union of your body, mind, and soul through movement, breath work, or  7  meditation. The classes are designed for all levels, with beginning modifications and advanced variations offered for those who desire something more or less challenging. 

Whole Body Yoga—Sculpt: Take a breath-to-movement vinyasa style class to the next level by adding light free weights into the flow. Each posture is designed to create heat (or tapas) in the body while building strength and stability.
