The Low-Down

What is barre?

Barre is a no-impact workout that combines Pilates, yoga, and some ballet inspired movement. Using mostly your own body weight and some light weights, you’ll work within very small movements and high reps to fatigue the muscles. We don’t have mirrors as we believe in the working from within the mind body connection without any distractions. It’s hard to tap in sometimes but we got you!  This is totally accessible to every-body and everyone! Beginners welcome in any class.

What kind of yoga do you offer?

We currently offer Vinyasa, Slow flow to Restore and Gentle Yoga with Thai Massage. All classes are open to all levels.  Each teacher can work seamlessly with beginners and intermediate students in one class.  The room temperature is set between 78 – 80 degrees.  If you have any injuries or concerns, reach out to your teacher before class begins to discuss. We also hold monthly workshops…follow us on social media to stay in the know!
