The New Fitness Buzz You Cannot Ignore! Leah Schwartz, owner/certified barre and pilates instructor

“Start where you are, grow from there, the practice is yours.� My journey started with my love for barre. I connected with the fluidity of the movements and how my body felt. Pilates was natural progression. The more the I practiced, the more I desired to perfect my skills. In 2013 I began my training and certifications in Barre and in 2016 I completed my reformer certification ve from Balance Body. Throughout my education I have collaborated with mentors of varying practices that have diversified my technique and knowledge, and molded my abilities as an instructor.

f you have never taken a Barre class, you may be a little confused on the concept. Even if you have taken a class, you might not be able to explain to your friend why she needs to come with you next time you visit our studio.

Below are the top questions people ask about Barre at Breathe. What is a BARRE workout? Barre workouts are a fusion of ballet, Pilates, functional training and yoga. This workout was created with a woman’s body in mind. It uses isometric or small movements to target women’s trouble spots, such as glutes, thighs, abdominals and backs of arms.

a way that you are lifting and toning while leaning and lengthening. Think ballerina body! Do you need to have ballet or Pilates experience? No! We will teach you everything you need to know. Form is key and that is what our guidance is here for. :KREHQHðWVIURP%DUUHFODVVHV" Everyone! Barre can be a great workout for runners or anyone who lacks flexibility. It is a great low-impact workout that benefits all types of women—early to mid-stages of pregnancy, just had a baby, or maybe hasn’t worked out in a long time. Many of our barre clients are people who have or are recovering from injury. They choose barre because it is a low-impact, safer option for your joints; however, it’s still dynamic and provides awesome results. You will sweat, shake, burn, lift and tone, all while moving to great music. What should I expect during a Barre class? After warming up, our classes are usually broken into segments, which work through targeted muscle groups. For instance, we start with standing thigh and seatwork, move to upper body, and finish with great mat core work while adding lowimpact cardio intervals in between that. This will help get your heart rate up and

burn fat. Each class will provide id de you with a total body workout, t, including stretching. Each class ss is a challenge and the exercises will change and so will you. Neverr expect to take the same class twice, as this will help to keep your body from plateauing. What results can I expect and how soon can I see them? m? Our clients tell us they see improved strength and more muscle definition after each class. They feel strong, graceful and feminine and feel a difference immediately, but see a difference after four to five workouts.
