Inspired from ballet, this 45-minute full body workout is designed to help you strengthen, lengthen, and tone up! Barre starts with a warm-up then fuses in planks, core work, arms, legs, and sometimes even cardio to the mix. The movements (done at a ballet barre) range from multi-joint to isometric (targeting a specific set of muscles) with a small range of motion and high repetition format. Barre is known for “the shake” because there is a huge concentration on the legs and your muscles start shaking during some of the exercises. Classes are challenging, but fun with great music and motivating instructors! We help explain/adjust form so that everyone in the room feels successful and safe!
What you need:
- Yoga mat
- Light hand weights (soup cans, filled up water bottles, get creative)
- One yoga block (Kristine’s class)
- Playground ball
- Resistance band (optional)
50/50 Barre + Yoga
The 50/50 class is fusion class combining both Barre and Vinyasa Yoga methods. The first half is a condensed version of our Jenstar barre class (regularly 45 minutes). Expect a warm-up, planks and core work, and some challenging leg exercises at a ballet barre (used for stability). The last half of class is a slower alignment-based yoga flow, complete with some longer holds to get a good stretch. This class is a fan favorite! It is the perfect blend of challenge and relaxation suitable for all levels.
What you need: A yoga mat
Optional: hand weights (or get creative), yoga blocks, blankets, or pillows.
