Barre has quickly become a favored form of fitness across the United States as people seek different forms of exercise to improve strength, flexibility and balance, maintain strong immune and cardiovascular functioning and alleviate stress and tension from their bodies and minds. Originally derived from ballet movements and techniques, Barre classes are low impact, high intensity and incorporate mindfulness techniques to help with focus, self awareness and presence. This energizing, full body workout, not only strengthens and stretches core muscle groups but can improve posture, boost cardio intake, reduce stress and boost mood. Similar to yoga, Barre can be modified to a variety of bodies and fitness levels and is a great complement to other activities.
