Barre Sculpt is a ballet-inspired workout for non-dancers that uses techniques from classical ballet. Barre Sculpt will tone, strengthen and lengthen your muscles without adding bulk, and since it is a low-impact form of exercise, it will be gentle on your joints.
Suitable for all fitness levels. We will be using resistance bands and light weights. We also welcome Drop Ins for this class.
Essentrics draws on the flowing movements of tai chi and ballet which create health and balance, improves posture, prevents back pain and unlocks tight muscles and joints. Classes are 30 minutes long.
