Favorite Exercise - Arabesque. It will single handedly lift your seat, trim your waist and strengthen your upper back while improving your posture, not to mention, make you feel like a dancer the whole time 🙂
I started Bar and became addicted to the routine. I wanted to perfect it and completely understand all the exercises. Then, I fell in love with the results, it truly delivers a dancer’s body with longer, leaner muscles. Now years into my practice the formula seems is so simple, Routine = Results and class continues to challenge me everyday.
Favorite Exercise - Round Back! Why? Round Back trims my thighs, gives me a killer ab burn, stretches my hamstrings, and strengthens my posture. It’s my secret weapon!
I love The Bar Method because it changed my life for the BEST! I became stronger, leaner, more flexible, and developed the most amazing family of friends! As a result, I made The Bar Method my career, my business, my passion -- my religion!
Favorite Exercise - Curl. I have always loved ab work -- even back in the days of having someone kneel on my feet while I did situps during sports practices! -- but the Bar Method curl is so targeted and effective. I also like how making a tiny change like pulling your shoulders back half an inch makes a huge difference in how much you can feel the exercise.
I love Bar Method because it has made me stronger, both physically and mentally. I still vividly remember the first time I did 20 pushups on the balls of my feet. I had decided that I wanted to work up to it, and started with just doing a few on my feet. It took some time, but I finally got there. I felt such a huge sense of accomplishment -- I had to hold back a fist pump!
Favorite Exercise - Arabesque; it reminds me of my many years taking ballet, plus it is killer! It works so many muscle groups at once all while making you feel graceful.
I love Bar Method because I leave always leave the studio a better version of myself. Every class leaves me feeling strong and centered.
