A dynamic, full body workout that combines standing, floor and barre exercises in one class. (Individual chairs are used in place of a barre.) Respectful to the body, yet challenging the barre work helps to unlock and stretch the deep muscles of the spine, hips, hamstrings and quads, in order to relieve pain and permit full range of motion. Essentrics Barre Workouts will tone and shape your body, create long lean muscles and increase your flexibility. For the past 15 years, Essentrics has integrated the barre into its regular workouts. Keeping up with the fundamental principles of the program, elongating the muscles and challenging them in the lengthened position, strengthening while lengthening- zero impact without the use of weights. Class is done in bare feet. Please bring a yoga mat and towel.
