The barre technique is a workout routine that combines elements of ballet, Pilates, yoga, and lightweight training into an efficient and effective workout. Barre is a total body workout that utilizes a ballet barre to perform small isometric movements set to popular music. Using one’s own body weight as resistance while challenging the core, stability, and balance, barre classes manage to give one the streamlined body of a dancer while reinforcing strength and muscle tone.

  • PROPS modified for home training include
    • a chair or countertop instead of a ballet barre
    • non-weighted exercise ball
    • resistance band
    • light hand weights

Example moves include squeezing a ball between the inner thighs while standing on tiptoes, tiny leg lifts with the back pressed against the wall, and hands grasping the barre above.

The class burns fat and produces lifted seats, toned arms, long/lean thighs, and flat abs, all within a 60-minute intense session.
