Barre Essentials I & II Instructor Workshops
Who: Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Fitness instructors, those interested in becoming instructors, or folks who just love to explore new movement!
Barre Essentials I: Ballet Barre
Ballet Barre is a full-body workout that utilizes a stationary handrail for support. In addition to improving strength and flexibility gains, Ballet Barre is excellent for developing better posture, coordination, stability and balance.
Barre Essentials II: Floor Barre
Floor Barre is a technique that takes classic ballet barre exercises to the floor. This takes away the effort of standing, and the support of the floor enables participants to better isolate muscle groups, improving form and reducing risk of injury.
What you will learn can be immediately incorporated into your existing yoga, Pilates, or fitness classes...or developed into a stand-alone class! No prerequisite is required to take this training course, however, experience in dance, yoga, or mat Pilates is beneficial.
