What is a Yoga Barre class?
Yoga 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 Yoga Barre classes 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.
What to expect?
Expect a good workout that focuses on small movements not large impact. It’s perfect for pinpointing the muscles that you want toned and for developing core strength without the excesses of high intensity exercise. We use some small weights to help build strength, balls for balance, some mat work when focusing on the core and of course a session at the ballet barre.
