The BARREtique Difference
At BARREtique, we believe that your barre class should be:
Innovative – No two classes are ever the same! Classes are based on the BARREtique Method, but full of endless variations
Fun – Our BARREtique community values the supportive and non-competitive atmosphere in our classes – and our ability to inject a bit of fun and humour into your hour of exercise
Safe – All our classes are uniquely challenging, yet we put correct alignment, positioning and excellent teaching at the heart of every class
Beautiful – BARREtique exercises are designed not only to make you feel great about your body – but to look elegant while doing so! This isn’t boot camp!
Results Driven – We know that an hour to exercise is really valuable – we promise to make it worthwhile
What can you expect from BARREtique?
Stronger Together – Online
At BARREtique we adore our barre community, and that is why it is essential that we need to reduce the Covid risk for everyone around our barre, our families and the wider community. As we view the changing landscape of infection in the UK and London this autumn, the decision has been made to continue to offer online Zoom classes and not offer in person classes until it seems more appropriate.
For many people, limiting possible virus exposure in the coming months will allow other activities, such as schools, work and small social groups to continue. While group exercise classes are amazing, we have found that we can create the same challenging classes, energetic vibe, and caring community through our online Zoom classes. If you have been reluctant to try this format, we hope that you will give BARREtique Zoom a try, and disconnect from the outside world for an hour as you stretch your limits in one of our classes.
What Makes BARREtique Unique?
An hour at BARREtique gives you a challenging workout to produce long, lean muscles and a more toned physique. BARREtique fuses the disciplines of ballet, pilates, isometric exercising, yoga and core conditioning. We work arms, legs, bottoms, and abdominals through mat and ballet barre based exercises. We integrate light weights, playground balls, rings, blocks and bands into the exercises to build strength, work difficult to target areas, and provide effective stretching.
The varied and precise movements are designed for results – toned legs, lifted bottom, flattened abdominals, and defined arms. The method works muscle groups intensely followed by active stretching. We aim to increase strength and tone in large and small muscle groups, as well as increase flexibility. Although most classes are fast paced and designed to keep your heart rate within a targeted zone, they are all non-impact. The movements are fun and unique; the environment is non-competitive. We welcome all ages and fitness levels. The spirit of the class is designed to help you work just that little bit harder than you would on your own!
