How is it that ballet dancers are some of the strongest athletes in the world yet so lean? Barre fitness, inspired by ballet barre exercise, strengthens muscles, but with small, controlled movements. These isometric movements develop deep strength in both large and small muscles, while also helping to increase bone strength, improve alignment, support joints and enhance posture. Toning balls and flex bands aid in sculpting the muscles to create a more toned appearance. Proper breathing techniques integrated with core exercise improve pelvic floor health. Class ends with yoga stretch for flexibility. Anyone of any fitness level can take a barre class. For online class, the back of a solid chair acts as your barre.
