Barreconcept at Camyoga
BarreConcept Comes to Camyoga
"A unique, high-intensity workout based around the ballet barre. It combines the precision of Pilates, the technique of ballet, the alignment of yoga and the strength of sports conditioning - to create a challenging but super-effective all-over body workout" - Cambridge News
BarreConcept is the latest craze to hit dance, pilates and yoga studios across the world. And there's a reason why it's proving so very popular - this unique workout combines elements of Pilates, yoga, resistance training and ballet into a highly effective regime performed on the mat and at a ballet barre. The technique utilises the body's own resistance in conjunction with weights, bands and small balls. The effect is a long, lean dancers body without being a dancer!
The low impact, total body workout increases strength, toning the thighs, flattening the abs and sculpting the arms, whilst protecting the joints. Small isometric contractions are performed and integrated with an interval training approach that burns fat and improves cardiovascular fitness. Posture, flexibility, stamina and core strength improve. The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously and efficiently. A perfect compliment to a regular yoga practice.
Stretches are performed after each strength section of the class to ensure the muscles are re-lengthened to create a body that is strong without the added bulk of other regimes. This workout is suitable for everybody as various modifications are given throughout the class to suit the abilities of all students. A fantastic way to supplement your yoga practice, whilst developing the grace and flow of a dancer!
