Barre

Barre: What is it?

These classes are open to all women and there is an emphasis on pelvic floor, integrated breathing and core work, so my classes are ideal for mums or women peri to postmenopausal. The workout is low impact and can be adapted for all fitness levels.
BarreConcept is set to music and it combines ballet, pilates and sports conditioning exercises alongside relaxing stretches. Equipment such as balls and bands are used to challenge the body further.
I plan the classes to give you a whole body workout, in the hope you will leave feeling better than when you came in. We work on ballet technique, posture and strengthening from the core.

The fitness classes are friendly, fun and there are options for all levels of fitness.

The class gets busy and is often full, so booking is essential, as there’s limited space at the barre. Classes need to be paid for in advance, but if you then cannot make the class and give more than 24 hours notice, your class can be used for another time.

Added extras:
Once you have attended a class you can become part of the Facebook group Barre Class Eddington and Girton, where short videos are posted for you to continue your practise at home.
I often do give aways in the class, most recently with Barre/pilates socks, Sweaty Betty purses and online memberships.
I also try and bring in some healthier snacks every now and again to refuel all the ladies taking part in the class.

Term dates:
Classes run alongside school term times. They currently run at my home studio in Girton. .

Where:
Thornton Way, Girton, Cambridge: You can park on my drive or on street. The exact address will be sent on booking your spot. The studio is based in my garden. 

Storey’s Field Centre: This class is very popular and taught in a beautiful studio. It is possible to park close to the centre on street, but you must get a ticket.

All Barre On Demand £10 per month

Sign up to our Barre Workouts and you will receive access to workouts to do at home whenever suits you. These workouts are designed for those of you who struggle to get to classes or have limited time but still want to get moving.

What do I need?
All you need is access to the internet and you can use the videos as much or as little as you like. You will be sent your log in information and then you are good to go. The videos can be done at home, in the garden, wherever it works for you.
Some of the videos will use equipment, which will make the workout harder. A small loop band,  a resistance band, small weights ( filled water bottles will do!) and a pilates ball. All of these can be bought cheaply on Amazon, Decathlon, The physical Company or Physio Room online. The exercises can be performed without them, but for the best results in terms of building strength the equipment helps.

Disclaimer: These exercises are suitable for most, as options are given, however If you have been of ill health please get your Doctor’s permission before starting these videos. The workouts are not aimed towards pregnant or recently post natal women. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.

You can unsubscribe at any time, however in doing so you will lose access to all of the content. You can re-subscribe again at any point if you would like to use the videos another time.

I hope you enjoy them!

Please note: No refunds will be given.
