Barre Sculpt starts at Kew YMCA
Barre Sculpt starts at Kew YMCA when the new timetable commences March 19. I know 4.45pm isn't easy for a lot of you, but it would make my day to see you come and try the class! All going to plan, I will be starting Barre Core with the lovely Emma Seibold at Barre Body in the city at the end of March. I look forward to telling you more about that closer to the time. As always, any questions or comments about the class or other classes I teach are more than welcome.
·To strengthen deep stabiliser muscles that hold
the spine and ribs in their ideal alignment
·Improve posture through correcting muscular
imbalances and focusing on lengthening through the spine
Engaging core muscles in the abdominals, hips, back and glutes
to strengthen and shape these muscles
·Increased flexibility and balance
·Combining isolation exercises into the
stabilising muscles through the core and limbs that are often overlooked in
weight and aerobics disciplines
·Focusing on a combination of isometric exercises
and stretching to elongate and shape muscles (hence, the dancer’s physique)
·Combining the core focus of pilates, the grace
of yoga and the traditions of classical dance training to sculpt and define
structured 60 minute class that allows modifications for all levels of fitness
excellent addition to aerobic (cardio) training
to lengthen, tone and shape the “trouble spots”: thighs, hips, stomach!
