Barre Pilates Method can be done by everybody!

  • Bringing a new fun full body exercise class to Your Pilates Space, the Barre Pilates Method combines Pilates principles with Ballet techniques to deliver a safe, effective, dynamic workout.
  •  No previous dance experience required, we use our body as a weight to strengthen and sculpt long, lean muscles. Focusing on the arms, shoulders, legs and glutes as well as using your core to protect your spine and keep you moving for the full class!
  • A high energy class which uses flowing movements in a sequence to build towards challenging routines.
  • In our 1-2-1 sessions, we use the Pedi-Pole to enhance and challenge the moves even further.
  • In our group classes, we use a long gondola pole to help with balance and to also challenge our co-ordination.
