CORE BARRE™ is a system of movement designed to create strength, flexibility, and a balanced body for the participant as well as the teacher.
It is based on elements of Pilates, Ballet and Athletic Conditioning and consists of high energy, low impact and fat burning exercises. Participating in CORE BARRE™ creates a new found awareness of the body, and an appreciation for smart movement.
Smart movement is simply moving the body with focus, precision, and strength not only in the physical realm but also in context of general well being. As we learn to engage in exercises that balance out the muscle groups in our bodies, we learn to balance our mind as well, which in turn facilitates clarity to make better choices in our daily living and hence promotes well being.
The CORE BARRE™ movements exercise our bodies in such a manner that does not cause injuries or further promote imbalances. Rather, it strengthens all muscles and re-programs the body to move in the way it was naturally designed to. CORE BARRE Participants quickly learn that engaging in a workout or class exercise does not have to mean “no pain – no gain”. In fact, the movements in CORE BARRE exercises are designed to be effortless, graceful, and energy generating, creating a meaningful and purposeful rhythm that is attuned to our bodies and its surroundings.
Therefore, the goal with CORE BARRE™ is to create awareness with mind and body for SMART MOVEMENT®.
CORE BARRE™ is the first series of classes that form the foundation for the system of SMART MOVEMENT®.
CORE SUSPEND™ focuses on suspension exercises applying overall principles of stability. CORE SUSPEND further builds on the CORE BARRE fundamentals of focus, precision, and strength by further emphasizing stability and coordination of the body, which can only be achieved as one has developed a consciousness of each of the muscle groups in the body and their respective functioning in balance with one another. The progression, and regression of each CORE SUSPEND exercise is designed to challenge the individual appropriately with respect to their level of strength, stability and coordination.
