Balans Barre is a Pilates, dance, isometrics and floor work hybrid routine that tones every major muscle group using a ballet barre and mats. It is the most targeted body sculpting work-out. The workout emphasizes flexibility and low-impact moves that protect your joints. You will quickly and safely reshape your body practicing these strength and stretching routines.
Barre targets the most calorie-hungry muscle-groups: your legs and arms and keeps them working at an intense pace. Barre challenges the body’s strength and endurance throughout the class.
During class you’ll alternate between exercises that require intense bursts of energy and deep stretches. The benefit to this format is that it produces both high caloric burn and firmer muscle mass. It lifts your seat, elongates your muscles and improves posture. You use your own body weight to isolate, strengthen and ultimately sculpt major muscle groups.

HOW IS A BALANS Barre CLASS STRUCTURED?
Each class begins with a warm up, then focuses on intense leg and “seat” work at the bar, and then moves into isolated light free weight training for the arms, back and core.
The class then moves to the mat for additional core work and stretching. Every exercise includes active stretching which helps to elongate the muscles you have just worked.
