Wear whatever you feel comfortable working out in that allows your body to move freely. We suggest that you workout barefoot or in sticky socks (which help your feet keep a grip on the hardwood floors). When you arrive, your instructor will show you around the studio and help you get settled and set up. Our studio is 1,500 square feet and totally open so there is a lot of room to spread out and feel comfortable. You will be working out with a wide variety of age groups and fitness levels and that’s intentional. We love having a combination of generations that represent a diverse range of fitness levels at the barre. Your instructor will show you how to take each position up to the next level or down for less intensity. As you gain strength, you will find yourself letting go of the barre for longer periods of time as you gain balance and coordination. You will begin sitting lower in your pliés, holding your plank without dropping to your knees, and taking your workout to the next level in a variety of other ways. Your instructor will always be cheering you on and showing you how to get more from your workout. We believe we have a lot to learn from each other and that bringing a wide variety of fitness levels, ages and stages into one room is a beautiful way to encourage each other, accept each other and push each other on as we strengthen our bodies.
