- What is Barre?
Barre is a total body workout. A ballet barre is used to perform small isometrics movements. It is an effective way to help burn fat, sculpt the body, and create long, lean and toned physiques. At Barre Lab we believe in offering a lifestyle of empowerment, not just a workout.

Everyone can benefit and enjoy barre classes at Barre Lab. We aim to create a safe environment. We work hard to structure an effective method to help sculpt the body.

We have our own in-house method that combines a detailed oriented principle of Pilates, Yoga and Dance.
- What types of classes are there and how are they different?
All classes are the same level as the technique was designed to work for people at all points on their fitness journey. That way, you can choose the class that suits your schedule, rather than being forced to work out at a specific time based on the level of class.
Modifications and/or advancements are given for most exercises to accommodate all fitness levels.
Barre Stretch is a full body, 60-minute class incorporating the toned and lengthened muscles of barre, the precision and core strengthening of Pilates and the mindfulness and flexibility of yoga. It's designed to sculpt and lengthen all the major muscles groups of the body. This class offers passive and dynamic stretching techniques for the full body with the focus on the hips, legs & back and with many modifications. The pace is slowed down a bit to allow for lots of time to perfect your posture and your position.
Barre101 debunks the stereotype that barre classes are only for dancers. Barre is for every age, every background, and every level of fitness. It’s easy on your joints and is totally customizable to make it as hard (or easy) as you want it to be.
The key to getting great results through barre workouts is to have the right form.
The focus of this class will be:
● Focus on the form of the spine
● Focus on the hip, knee and ankle alignment
● Proper breathing technique
● Positions of each exercises prior to progressing to barre stretch & flow
BarreFlow, our signature class incorporates strength, endurance and flexibility into one invigorating workout.
While every class follows a similar flowing format, the exercises and choreography are continually changing to keep you from reaching a workout plateau. By combining aspects of Yoga, Pilates, Barre fitness and classic strength training, focus on posture and form and the smooth transitions between exercises will help even the busy-minded student become more present as concentration is necessary to get the most out of this class.
Barre Power class builds on from Barre 101 and 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 by using props and the moves are choreographed to music. Expect to feel the burn, sweat while having fun in this high energy class. Prior barre classes experience is recommended before taking Barre Power class.
