BARREtique is Back in Person!
BARREtique has thrived online since March 2020, but now as we move away from ‘pandemic life’ and back to ‘normal life’ we will operate a hybrid Zoom and Studio schedule. We know that not everyone can attend class in person – for a variety of reasons – but when possible, we strongly encourage this. The focus on your class, the attention to form, and the overall spirit of the class just can’t be replicated when you are on screen!
We aim to offer options for Zoom and Studio classes throughout the week. Here are the measures that will be in place for our Studio classes:
- Class size limited to 8 people
- Windows and doors opened, with fans circulating air – please consider wearing layers
- The room and equipment set up will be along the outside of the room and will not put clients face to face
- The building is professionally cleaned by an outside company every day
- Clients encouraged to use hand sanitiser upon entry and to thoroughly clean equipment after use
- Clients may bring their own exercise mats and equipment, if desired
- If you or someone in your household has Covid, please do not attend while positive for the virus
- If you have been diagnosed with Covid after attending a class, please communicate this to Sarah so that other attendees can be informed
- If you are feeling unwell for another reason that is possibly contagious (common cold, norovirus, etc), please do not attend class until you feel well
- For those not comfortable with in person classes yet, Zoom and our streaming library of classes will continue to be available
We hope to see you in person in the studio, but understand that Zoom classes continue to be a great option for many students who are not ready to exercise in a group environment, who prefer the privacy of exercising in thier own home, and for clients who are not based in London.
You will find the same quality of instruction in both our Studio and Zoom classes, but there are some differences. As our classes constant contain verbal set up and alignment cues, our Zoom classes to do not have the same background music as our studio classes. If you work out with us on screen, if you are comfortable, please make sure we can see you. This enables us to give individual and group corrections and cues to give you the most personal and safest workout possible. In the studio we will provide verbal and hands on corrections as appropriate. As our classes are geared towards all levels, please inform your teacher if you have an existing or new injury, and as a rule of thumb on in any class, if something doesn’t feel right for you, then do not do it.
Regardless of how you choose to exercise with BARREtique, you will find that we are a welcoming community. Beginners and those new to BARREtique are always looked after. Our teaching is never formulaic, but geared to the students in the room. All students are encouraged to take class at their own pace – recognising that everyone is different in their fitness level and exercise journey. Classes are designed to be suitable to all fitness levels, although we encourage you to stretch yourself and work a bit harder, if that seems right for you!
BARREtique is offering classes termed ‘Classic BARRE’ that are perfect for those who are new to barre or BARREtique – as well as experienced students who would like a more traditional barre class. These classes will contain less choreography, and more explanation. These are not easy ‘beginners’ classes, but rather classes that focus on form and positioning, understanding where each exercise is working, and there is even more explanation on offer.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM 30TH MAY THROUGH 15TH JUNE OUR SCHEDULE WILL BE MODIFIED. CHECK THE CURRENT CLASS SCHEDULE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
