barre body® 1


A modern, challenging, and safe barre class that sculpts & tones your body while providing a calorie-burning cardio workout. Set to an up tempo and fun mix of music ranging from classical to contemporary, this class targets specific muscle groups through repetitive movements. It incorporates weights, Therabands®, exercise balls, and the ballet barre to build core strength while developing long, lean, flexible muscles.


Yoga Basics


An alignment-based flow practice focusing on proper positioning and safety in foundational yoga postures. Perfect for the beginning student looking for a solid foundation for his/her practice, while also challenging the experienced student who is looking to get back to the basics. Mindfully linking the breath with movement builds heat from the inside out, calms and focuses the mind, and relieves stress; you will leave feeling powerful and rejuvenated.


GENTLE HEATED FLOW


Increase strength, flexibility, & endurance as you build movements based on sun salutation series. Both modifications and challenges to the poses are offered to make the class appropriate for students of varying levels. With a room temperature of 84-88 degrees, Gentle Heated Flow is the perfect class for yogis who are trying to transition into hot classes (from a non-heated All Levels Flow or Yoga Basics to a heated Power, Power Plus or Barkan-Style Yoga). Much of the sequencing is a little slower than a typical vinyasa flow class, allowing students to open up a little more.



Power Yoga


A fast-paced, challenging practice that builds stamina and strength through a series of flowing, diverse poses (asanas), while linking breath to movement. Students should be comfortable moving through poses with good alignment. Power Yoga builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and concentration. Appropriate for Ashtanga-style & Barkan-Style yoga practitioners. Room temperature 90-93 degrees. If you desire a challenging yoga practice and like to sweat, this is your class!

Much of the sequencing is a little slower than a typical vinyasa flow class, allowing students to open up a little more.


Power Yoga Plus


Power Yoga Plus combines several styles into one power packed, detoxifying, sweaty class! It produces a fast-paced, creative, challenging practice that builds concentration, flexibility, lung capacity, stamina and strength through the combination of a standing series, a flow sequence, and a floor series, while linking breath to movement. Students will be challenged with influences from traditional Vinyasa flow, Barkan-Style, Hot 26 & Bikram-Style yoga. Students should be comfortable moving through poses with good alignment. Appropriate for Power, Ashtanga-Style & Barkan-Style yoga practitioners. Room temperature 93-96 degrees. If you desire a mentally & physically challenging yoga practice and like to sweat, this is your class!


Barkan-Style Hot Yoga


The room is heated which allows for a deeper release within the body, lessens chance of injury, speeds healing and flushes toxins from the body. This class is recommended for everyone, from first day beginners to advanced students. The magic of this class is that everyone is practicing the same posture at different levels of ability, receiving the same benefits. The practice brings vital balance and restores all systems to optimal health. Consistency will create a physical & mental harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner’s life.

*Be sure to bring plenty of water & hydrate well prior to attending class.


ASHTANGA


Ashtanga is the original power yoga. Intended to be a daily practice, this powerful, healing practice is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa.) Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and stamina for a complete practice. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is different from many yoga classes in the West in that the order of asanas is completely predefined. A practice will comprise four main parts: an “opening sequence,” “primary series”, a back-bending sequence, and a set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.” Practice always ends with savasana.

If you like a strong power yoga or vinyasa class then you should find this challenging and rewarding. The room is unheated.


RESTORATIVE


This 60-75 minute class will incorporate a gentle yoga practice, with essential oils to aid in balance and relaxation, and calming music to enhance the experience. Postures are held for 2-10 minutes and are fully supported by blankets, blocks, bolsters, and other props to allow you to drop more easily into a place of complete surrender. A perfect counter-balance to the stresses of Western life, this practice encourages the body and mind to unwind, relieves tension and pain, balances energy, and supports the healing process. Restorative yoga calms the sympathetic nervous system, helps regulate hormone production and blood flow, stimulates and soothes organs, improves concentration, and allows a deep sense of relaxation and grounding for the mind and body. This practice is excellent whether you are attempting to heal or are focused on restoring the body or the mind. (Note: This class is appropriate for all levels, including beginners and those with chronic illness. Essential Oils are optional based on sensory sensitivities.)

    I am a beginner at yoga…and I am 8 weeks pregnant. Would any of your classes be safe for me??

    1. Rachelle Pecovsky

      Hi Ashley,
      Please check with your doctor prior to starting any new exercise program during pregnancy! If you get the “go-ahead” and would like to add yoga during pregnancy, we suggest starting with a gentle class, like Restorative, to see how you feel. If that is comfortable, you can consider our Yoga Basics and Yoga for Wellness classes. It is important to let the instructor know you are pregnant, so proper modifications can be offered.

      Hi Veronica,All classes are for all levles. There is no need to worry for there are plenty of beginners in the class. Tuesday and Saturdays are fusion classes so it’s a combination of yoga, pilates and body sculpt / ballet barre toning. Wednesday class is a strong vinyasa yoga. Thanks for your interest. I look forward to meeting you. Warm regards,Daniela

    I’m interested in the Barre Bodya class but can’t tell when it is offered, when a new student could start or the pricing?

    Thanks!

    I enjoyed visiting your studio prior to its name change, and I am considering becoming an instructor. I wanted to know if you are aware of any instructor training locally I could get involved with.

    I was wondering if you had a child care room?? A few years ago I was going to the Barre One studio downtown, they had free child care which made it SO EASY for me to attend all the classes I wanted. But now I’ve moved and that seems far away. I’d love to try your studio out because it is closer to me, but I would need some sort of child care. I have a friend who is in the exact same situation.
    Sincerely interested, and thank you for your time. Brittan Smith

    P.s. If this is an idea your business would be interested in trying, I’m a sahm looking for any work that would allow me to bring along my little girls and help other moms.

      Hi Brittan,
      Please accept our apologies for the delayed response! We were having some website issues and have just now become aware of them. We understand that having child care available can certainly make a commitment to your fitness much easier to stick to!
      We offer child care during our Saturday 9am and 9:30am classes, Sunday 10am class, and Monday 6:15pm and 6:30pm classes. During these regularly scheduled times the cost of child care is $6 per class you attend (you can bring as many of your children as needed for that cost). We also offer child care by advance appointment during all other classes. Cost is $8/hr and appointment is subject to availability of child care providers. Please give us a call if we can help with anything else. 423-987-8998 We hope to meet you soon!
