Based on almost 30 years of developing safe and responsible exercise with STOTT PILATES®, our systematic approach to the TotalBarre® program provides the framework for building and modifying barre classes that emphasize the correct biomechanics of movement while increasing strength, flexibility, stamina and dynamic stability.
TotalBarre Foundation Course Level 1
2 days (1.30-5.30PM)
Presented in a course format, the Foundation offers multiple layers of choreography along with detailed biomechanical essences of the movements included. This detail ensures positive results and client safety and is designed to affect physical adaptations for all body types.
These layers combine with group progressions to move from an introductory class through to a high-level endurance workout. Increasing knowledge of movement sequences and body awareness progresses clients safely through the segments.
Adapted from the STOTT PILATES® Five Basic Principles, these biomechanically based body awareness fundamentals are integral to the effective teaching and practice of all Total Barre exercises and sequences. Students are introduced to the Total Barre 6 movement principles that provide the structure and biomechanical basis for each exercise.
The Total Barre Method includes 11 specially arranged and selected segments that serve as the template for each session or class. Each Total Barre class follows these 11 templates.
Barre Lab Method
Based on TotalBarre Foundation Level 1 course, BarreLab program provides specific class designed for students to teach classes offered at Barre Lab.
The training provides the groundwork for instructors, offering them to teach safe, fun and effective Barre Fitness program to every client.
The method is based on ballet foundation, principles of Pilates and the fluidity and mindfulness of yoga practice.
The movements involve around isotonic contraction and often times with isometric hold to intensify the workout. The method incorporates the use of props such as stability ball, sancbands, flexbands, sliders/gliders to assist and to intensify the movements.
As an instructor at Barre Lab, you should learn the client’s name and recognize their efforts during the class. Form is important, at times correction of the alignment is appreciated. It’s advised that a client should attend barre classes 3-4 times a week.
Currently, Barre Lab offers 3 different types of classes : BARRE 101, BARRE POWER and BARRE STRETCH.
Let’s have fun and enjoy the journey of #DareToBarre together!
Barre 101 is a beginner class. These classes debunk the stereotype that barre classes are only for dancers. The classes focus on isometric movements and are easy to follow. The classes focus on the biomechanics and principles of TotalBarre program.
Building from Barre 101, the Barre Power class is a combination of cardio, strength and conditioning which focuses on building muscle endurance, total body-toning and sculpting. The class expands on Barre 101 by providing a higher level of body conditioning. The class uses props to elevate the level of conditioning beyond Barre 101. The moves are choreographed to music. Expect to feel the burn, sweat and have fun in this high energy class. Prior barre classes experience is recommended before taking Barre Power class.
The classes focus on toning and lengthening major muscle groups. Combining precision of pilates and mindfulness of yoga, the classes focus on eccentric contraction of the muscles and some passive stretches.
