Barre is a dynamic ballet and strength based class that mixes elements of Pilates , Yoga and functional training, and the moves are choregraphed to motivating music. In each energising and targeted session, you will use the barre and small equipment.

Benefits of this whole class include: reducing backaches, develop stature, support
the spine and feel steady on your feet. Also sculpting your arms, legs, hips and
core.

We place the emphasis on precision, alignment and breath control, which are all
Iyengar Yoga techniques.

 

The focus
A dynamic class using body weight exercises and light hand weights to strengthen, sculpt and tone the entire body. Using the Barre and also focusing on our reflection and alignment in the full studio length mirrors. Then concluding with stretching and lengthening the body with a few Yoga & Pilates Stretches at the end, perfect after our Barre work.

The objective
Expect a series of low-intensity fat burning intervals from ballet leg lengtheners to barre burn, along with posture and alignment work from the principles of Polestar Pilates and Yoga alignment techniques( Iyengar).

Using the Polestar Principles of Movement of axial elongation and core control,
alignment, weight bearing and movement integration to gain excellent movement
throughout the whole class. Also incorporating Iyengar Yoga moves and breath
work. Moves will also incorporate small Pilates equipment, which include, weights,
bands and soft balls.

We focus on
Small isometric movements working into each muscle group
Long repetitions
Posture, alignment to ensure we switch on the correct muscles and
ensure correct technique

We then conclude with hamstring yoga stretches, twists and forward folds, this allows for a beautiful lengthening stretch throughout the entire spine, shoulders, pelvis and hamstrings, perfect after Barre work.

All new students will receive a short Posture, Gait and Functional base assessment to understand where to base your moves.
