There's not a Barre Body class where you won't find yourself in a Downward Facing Dog (or Adho Muka Svanasana) at some point. So with all that downward facing goodness going on in our studios, we thought we'd share a few tips on perfecting your form.
Our Wanderlust Sydney Recap!
This past weekend, we were so thrilled to take participate in Wanderlust Festival on the spectacular Cockatoo Island in Sydney. If there's a better way to spend three days than indulging in all things yoga, surrounded by wonderful, inspiring people, with a breathtaking view of Sydney Harbour ... Then we're yet to hear about it.
Why you should start Dry Body Brushing today
If you’ve participated in our BodyLove Bootcamp, the benefits of dry body brushing will come as no surprise. But if you haven’t yet discovered the wonders of that dry body brush – here is you why should start today!
Where We Eat - Flinders Lane
Last month, we told you all our favourite foodie finds around our Surry Hills studio. This month, we're going a little further south to Melbourne, to our flagship Flinders Lane studio! Here's where we like to refuel before and after our Barre Body classes at Flinders Lane.
What Our Teachers Pack for Lunch
We all know that moving our bodies is just one part of the wellness equation. The other key factor in creating a body that feels as good as it looks is filling it with wholesome, beautiful food.And when it comes to beautiful bodies that glow from the inside out, we need to look no further than our Barre Body teachers. Their weekly workouts are a given, but what do they fuel their bodies with when they leave class? We asked our teachers to give us a snapshot inside their lunchboxes, and here’s what we found …
We are celebrating the last little taste of Summer with some amazing new finds. From a great beach read, to the most incredible swimsuits, to treats for your gorgeous bodies - here are our February #FabFinds.
Since welcoming my beautiful baby girl, I've really been focusing on practicing mindfulness. It's life changing, for your body, your mind and your soul. Here are my thoughts and tips for incorporating mindfulness into your everyday life.
We Test Drive the Orchard Street Juice Cleanse
Despite it being a new year, and with all the best of intentions, our bodies have been crying out for an opportunity to press ‘reset.’ And at Barre Body, we know there’s no better way to do that than with a beautiful juice cleanse. So our resident cleanse novices Gabby and Amy put up their hands to try a 3-day cleanse by Orchard Street. Here’s how they found it.
Yoga Yourself to Sleep
We’ve all been there. Utterly exhausted, dreaming about sleep, ready and waiting for those 8 hours of rest to sweetly come our way. But as soon as our heads hit the pillow, thoughts start and – quite simply – simply won’t stop. We've found 10 yoga moves that will help with relaxation and stress relief at night, so you can drift softly off to sleep.
The Tragedy of First Position (A Giggle for your Wednesday)
It's sometimes easy to forget that everyone in your class was a first-timer at one point (even your teacher with that impeccable form). So if you're feeling a little less-than-coordinated for your first few Barre Body classes, you're certainly not alone. We think this (divine) girl little captures it perfectly.
Where We Eat - Surry Hills
When the music has been switched off, our butts are on fire (in the best way possible) and we’re done for the day, we treat ourselves by feeding our bodies with food that makes us feel good.In all our Barre Body locations across Australia, we’re lucky to be surrounded by some amazing culinary options. So in this new blog series, we’re going to be sharing our favourite haunts around our studios. We’re kicking off in everyone’s favourite Sydney foodie suburb, Surry Hills.
How to brew green tea
For best results when you brew your green tea, follow the 80:80 rule. Brew at 80 degrees for 80 seconds. Any more than that temperature or time-wise, your green tea tastes bitter.
DIY Almond Milk
If you've never made your own almond milk, now is the time. Deliciously creamy and ridiculously healthy, it's our new go-to recipe at Barre Body.
Barre Proof Your Hair
Whether you’re headed to the office, to dinner or simply to the bus stop after your Barre Body class, there’s nothing glam about post-workout hair. So we’ve pulled together our top tips to keep your hair looking great, whether on or off the barre.
From food and fashion to books and (of course) barre, we’re constantly surrounded by inspiration. So we thought we would share our monthly favourites with you, in the form of #FabFinds. Click through to see what the Barre Body team is falling in love with this month.
Bircher Muesli with Almond Milk
Barre Body's favourite wholesome, goodness-packed bircher muesli recipe, to help to kick off your day in the very best way possible.
Lost your fitness mojo? 12 NY resolutions to help you get it back
Create a fitness schedule - Too often we get out of the habit of exercising. Setting a schedule and booking classes or sessions in (even if it's just diarising "get butt to yoga for a yoga butt" can help you get back into the zone. You have to go to the session too of course!
The absolute beginner's guide to meditation
BodyLove Bootcamp Co-creator and wellness expert, Yaz Trollope shares some simple tips on meditation. It's not as hard as it seems.
Barre technique tutorial: plank
Plank is one of our favourite core and upper body exercises at Barre Body and proper technique is essential.
Vie Active Barre & Brunch event
We had so much fun with the gorgeous Vie Active girls putting on our Barre & Brunch events in Melbourne at our Flinders Lane studio and Sydney at our Bondi Junction studio.
Juice & smoothie how to
Try these hot tips for making delicious juices and smoothies at home. 1. Drink juices for nutrient density and smoothies for fibre. Smoothies are wonderful as they blend the whole ingredient, retaining the fibre (good for digestion), while juices are wonderful for nutrient density (more veg/fuit in one cup).
Matcha Green Tea Chia Pudding
I love matcha as it’s a super-charged green tea that’s high in vitamin c, chlorphyll, anti-oxidants and fibre. This matcha green tea chia pudding is as delicious as it is healthy!
5 of the best spas in Seminyak
I was lucky enough to spend 5 weeks in Bali last month "working". It was tough, but I did it for a very good cause. I was researching spas and retreat venues for the Barre Body Detox & Tone Retreat (to be held September 2015).
Why Barre Body is so darn good for you
Barre workouts change your body. Anyone who has done Barre Body consistently (three to four times a week for a month or more) will tell you that it tones and lengthens your muscles, making you look and feel firmer and slimmer.
Stay well in winter
Written by Yasemin Trollope, BodyLove Bootcamp Co-Creator. Kung fu kick your winter cold with these simple stay well tips and tricks.
Cinnamon Lane interview with Emma
Emma Seibold Is One Of Those People With Seemingly Boundless Energy. Full Of Enthusiasm At 6.30am (Amazing In Itself For A Mother Of A Two Year Old Boy), Emma warmly welcomes us to her beautiful new Barre Body studio in Sydney’s Surry Hills.
Easter treat: homemade raw chocolate strawberries
I’ve always been a big, big lover of all things sweet, particularly chocolate-y sweet things. In recent years, I’ve moved away from commercially made chocolates (with some lindt-y regret) which are typically very processed and laden with sugar. Instead, I make my own and because I only eat natural sugars my taste buds have changed and homemade goodness tastes so, so much better.
Letting go of having to lose weight
Why can’t I lose weight?Surely you’ve experienced this; you want to lose weight so you try really, really hard, but nothing happens. Then you stop trying, and lo and behold, you lose weight. Why? Because you let go of the notion of having to lose weight and stopped giving so much attention and energy to the idea of losing weight.
Emma's food philosophy
I get asked about my food philosophy all the time and my answer is pretty simple.
Which foods should I buy organic?
I'm sure you'd love to buy organic 24/7 for everything, but budget and seasonal availability can make this tough, so the next question is, which foods should I prioritise?
Easy, healthy chocolate mousse
This healthy take on chocolate mousse is super yummy and super easy. It takes about 5 mins and looks quite impressive.
Happy summer & thank you 2013!
What an incredible year it has been! We opened three new studios in Windsor, Fitzroy and Bondi, hosted our first luxury yoga, barre & stand up paddleboard retreat in Fiji, welcomed 15 new teachers to the Barre Body team, launched our 2nd DVD, Tone & Shape... and Matt and I got engaged!
Stay fit over the holidays
I asked the girls how they were planning to stay well over the Christmas holidays and this is what they said… 1. Paula Lay – I’m including lots of delicious salads with my meals & continuing to experiment with raw desserts, getting lots of inspiration from ‘therawtarian.com’ to stay healthy without compromising on taste!
Why I switched to TOM Organic tampons
I was first introduced to TOM Organic by the lovely Sarah Jensen, the National Account Manager for TOM. She gave be a great big supply of samples that we gave out at Flinders Lane and Windsor. She also have me a huge personal supply to trial. At the time, we talked about the value of
New Barre Body DVD - Tone & Shape
Tone & Shape is longer, stronger and more challenging and the exercises are more complex. Try this if you’ve experienced in barre-style fitness or if you want an extra challenge. This is an intermediate level workout (with options to make it stronger or more gentle to suit your body).
10 things to know about quinoa
Being pretty much vegetarian (aside from fish occasionally), quinoa is one of my staple grains (and you’ll learn why pretty quickly).1. It’s delicious!. When cooked, quinoa is light and fluffy and has a lovely, slightly nutty flavour. It’s easy to flavour with sauces and dressings. A little trick is to cook it in vegetable stock, rather than water and the veg stock is absorbed into the grains as it cooks, producing a delicious snack that you could eat on it’s own if you wanted.
Which blender should I buy?
I love to blend. I particularly love to make really thick, ice cold smoothies so I need a blender that will crush ice like it’s fairy floss and blend frozen fruit like they are fresh
Eat pretty: superfoods for your skin
Want gorgeous glowing skin? Don’t we all! Here are some of my favourite foods for skin health.Green tea – I can’t bang on enough about how good green tea is. It’s full of antioxidants (good), which stop those nasty free radicals (bad) in their tracks. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to promote the body’s natural detoxification process as well as get rid of excess fluid from the body. Drink 1-3 cups a day. Trust me.
Giving back in Fiji
I am so proud to announce that Barre Body will be building a bus shelter to shade and shelter the children of the Sanasana Village in Natadola Bay Fiji.
Green smoothies 101
As many of you know, in my previous life I founded Urban Remedy Cleanse, Australia’s leading juice detox program. When I had Xavier, I passed the reins over to the gorgeous and uber-healthy Laura Minford, who has taken Urban Remedy from strength to strength. Today’s blog is a guest post from Laura on the basics of green smoothies.
Healthy cinnamon apple crumble
This is a firm favourite of mine, both as a healthy dessert and a warming comfort breakfast. It’s an adaptation on a less healthy version that my nanna and mum make.
Guest post: Do you need to surrender?
One of my closest friends, Claire Obeid from The Wellness Project, has recently released an ebook on the art of surrendering.
Choc oaty balls of yum
Matt isn’t feeling well today and so far he hasn’t been able to eat anything. That said, he just asked me (with a sad, little sick face & puppy dog eyes) to make him some choc oat balls as he thinks he “might be able to eat some of those.” Bless his heart.
Ballet classes at Barre Body
I’m super excited to announce that we will be running ballet classes at Barre Body, starting in June.
An update on my famous healthy chocolate brownies
I made these healthy brownies today. They are to die for. To. Die. For. We try not to eat refined flours or sugars, but I really love a fresh baked sweet treat, so these are on high rotation at my house.
The importance of fun and friendship
Forgive me, for it’s been a (looooooong) while since I have blogged.
Sugar free chocolate? Yes please Lee!
Here’s a gorgeous recipe for sugar free chocolate from Lee Holmes from Supercharged Food.
Stand-up paddleboard yoga in Fiji
Matt, Xavier and I had a LOVELY time in Fiji over the new year period.
Super yummy protein pancakes
This recipe comes to you triple tested in my home kitchen with Xavier a rigourous and unrelenting tester
Guest post: Here’s to a new ADVENTURE
Here’s a guest post from Fiona Hogan, one of the incredibly talented naturopaths from Johanna Clark Naturopathy.
3 ways to avoid silly season weight gain
I can honestly say that I never put on weight over the silly season. I think it helps that the weather is warm and I tend to eat a little less and lighter in the warmer months,
A truly magical question
About 10 years ago, a colleague asked me a question that changed my life. She told me to think about my work/career direction and to ask myself “does it make my heart sing?”
I heart chlorophyll
I heart chlorophyll. It’s like sunshine in a bottle. Literally. Well almost.
5 things I vow to do every day
This post goes very nicely with the spring detox we are embarking on at Barre Body. Spring is a wonderful time to clean out the old and bring in the new. In that spirit, I am vowing to actually do the 5 things that I like to pretend I do everyday, every single day until they are just part of what I do, like brushing my teeth.
Summer shape up & the weight loss formula
Did the words “weight loss formula” get your attention? I’m sneaky like that. Most of us put on a kilo or two during winter owing to less exercise and heavier foods. Now it’s time to strip off a layer or two (of clothing) and get our bodies ready for summer.
A little yoga with your spring detox?
Detox is a topic that’s very close to my heart. Not that long ago, I was living in Bondi, juicing up a storm as Founder and General Manager of Urban Remedy cleanse, the now cult juice detox program.
Spring DIY detox (and a juice cleanse discount)
September is spring detox month at Barre Body. Many of you know that before Barre Body, I created another little biz called Urban Remedy Cleanse, a super healthy juice detox program, designed to rejuvenate your body from the inside out, so the art of detoxification is very close to my heart and a subject I am very well-versed in.
Super Green Smoothie Recipe & Video
I really do love smoothies. Such a wonderful way to get a fresh and healthy nutrient hit. I challenge you to drink one and not feel amazing.
Behind the scenes at Lululemon Ambassador photo shoot
As many of you know, I am a very proud ambassador for Lululemon Athletica. This goes very well with the fact that I am a card-carrying member of the I HEART STRETCHY PANTS ASSOCIATION*.
What’s your life motto?
I like to take a big picture view and think strategically. I do this with Barre Body and I try to do this with my personal life.
Winter blows. Stay motivated…
Baby it’s cold outside. After eight lovely years living in Sydney (in Bondi no less!), I’m back in Melbourne and facing a pretty cold winter. I have a pretty special superpower that I’d like to share with you…
Oh so easy choc bliss balls
Ok, so these bad boys are so easy it’s almost criminal. The video below shows my somewhat haphazard method (ie. throw it all together and hope for the best) for making these, but basically it’s as outlined below the vid.
Wellbeing 101: pH balance
Just like the litmus paper tests we did in science class, our bodies have a pH level; ideally we want to be slightly alkaline (7.4 on the pH scale), but most of us tend to be more acidic. When your body is alkaline, it is easier to eliminate toxins and break down acidic deposits that lead to sluggish digestion and increased fat.
Wellbeing 101: Water
Life has been so full and busy of late, I’ve decided to go back to the very basics of healthy living and you are invited to come along for the ride. Each week we’ll cover a different wellbeing topic. Let’s start with water. It’s doesn’t get much more basic than that…
Tone your bum in 7 minutes
Who wants a toned bum? Me please! I created this video for the lovely Yaz over at The Happiness Cocktail(one of my all-time favourite healthy life blogs) – it’s one of the best bum-toning exercises I have come across so I had to share it with you.
What’s your ayurvedic body type?
Ayurveda is an Indian system of traditional medicine. Ayur means life and veda means science, so it is quite literally “the science of life”. It has been around for a very long time (5000 years or so) and while, like everything, it has its critics and shortcomings, I particularly like its constitution based model of determining balance and health.
Guest post (about me!) from The Happiness Cocktail
Show of hands if you’ve ever done an Urban Remedy Juice Cleanse? Awesome. Me too. Oh, your hands are still down. OK, show of hands if you’ve heard of Urban Remedy Juice Cleanse? Aha, that’s the majority, I think.
Comfort foods with a healthy twist
It’s easy to eat healthily in summer. Our bodies naturally crave healthier foods; we opt for salads and lighter meals, favouring vegetables and lighter proteins. As the weather turns cooler our tastes and cravings shift toward warmer, heavier meals and comfort foods.
Will I lululemon? Yes, I will.
I should have been suspicious when the whole team from lululemon athletica Bourke Street booked into my class this morning, but I wasn’t. Why not? Because from the moment I told them I was opening Barre Body, they have been so incredibly supportive, enthusiastic and encouraging, so I just assumed they were popping in for a team class. No so.
