The Barre Body workout
Barre Body is a fun, challenging and very effective fusion of yoga, pilates and ballet barre conditioning, designed to tone your entire body, creating longer, leaner muscles. Ballet & pilates exercises at the barre and on the mat tone your muscles, while complementary yoga postures lengthen and shape your muscles (think long & lean like a ballet dancer!)
The interval training format (raising and lowering the heart rate) means that you get fast results, fat burning is increased and your metabolism is boosted for hours after your workout and the workout targets the entire body, giving special attention to the lesser used muscles, resulting in a total body toning effect.
It’s fun (and addictive when you see how quickly it shapes your body). You only need to do the workout 3-4 times a week to see great results.
You will need a chair (instead of a barre), a yoga or pilates mat (or carpeted space) and a set of 1-2kg hand weights (or no weights at all if don’t have any handy).
