What is Barre?

Barre was developed by a ballerina, Lotte Berk, a German dancer living in London. She came up with the idea to combine her dance conditioning routine with rehabilitative therapy after she injured her back. The result was Barre and the first studio opened in 1959 in her London basement. The workout then crossed the water to the states in the 70’s brought there by students of Berk. Since then it has quietly been growing in popularity and has been adapted into the fun and effective workout that is offered today.

Pregnancy Yoga

** Irish Enterprise Award-Winning Antenatal Birthing Workshops & Pregnancy Yoga 2022 **

Pregnancy Yoga is a wonderful way to enjoy an active pregnancy . It also prepares you for labour. It improves backache, increases stamina and awareness of breath and is deeply relaxing for both Mum and Baby.

The class starts with deep breathing and relaxation to centre you both, followed by warm up techniques and a Sun Salutation esp. designed for Pregnancy. Then we practice various postures and movements to help increase fluidity in the spine, relieve tension in the hips, pelvis and lower back, open up the chest and shoulders and strengthen the arms and legs. The exercises and breath work will help prepare you for labour and beyond and increase your confidence in your body’s ability to birth your baby with as much ease as possible.

“It’s hard to believe that I have been coming to Carolins classes for 6 years! I was hooked from very early on, she is an incredible instructor!

I love Carolines classes because no matter how stressed or tired I am, I come leave class feeling centred, stronger and in much better form. Carolines great energy and positive vibes make the class very fun. You feel the burn as you sweat, stretch and strengthen to energize your entire body. A big plus for me is carolines killer playlists, the perfect tunes when you are pushing your body to its limits”

- Beth
“The Yoga Barre class was great! Caroline’s enthusiasm really encourages you to get moving and energise yourself for the rest of the day! The stretches are great for loosening out all the tight muscles and relieving aches you might have from carrying your little bump around! The relaxation at the end, provides a few minutes of absolute bliss!”
- Sarah
“Both myself and baby Ted thoroughly enjoyed Caroline’s baby massage classes. For me it was something I looked forward to every week and a chance to meet other mums and babies during lockdown. Ted loved the interaction and massage time which we now do as part of his bedtime routine and he is definitely more settled after it – he sleeps all night and definitely does less fussing when we spend dedicated time on bath&baby massage in the evening!”
- Amanda
“I have done pregnancy yoga with Caroline in person on my first pregnancy, and I’m currently  online with my second. I have also done by mum and baby yoga and barre classes both in person and online. I can’t recommend Caroline highly enough. Her classes are fun, professional, energetic, pitched just right to my ability whether it has been while pregnant, post natal or otherwise. The online classes are great for busy mums picking up whenever (and wherever!!), whereas the classes in person were an amazing place to meet like minded mums/friends who I have kept at my side closely in the class and outside. I felt ready for my active birth after completing her antenatal class with my husband filled with positive affirmations, relaxing movements and breathing techniques!”
“For me Caroline’s yoga classes- Healthy mind in a healthy body! My 4th year with her yoga classes it’s a pleasure having Caroline as a teacher. I’ve learned techniques during pregnancy yoga classes online which helped to have an easy delivery and quick recovery. Love Yoga Barre and can’t wait to be back! Thank you Caroline!”
