Ballet Physique®, our signature class, is a high-intensity barre workout that blends strength training with ballet-inspired movement and incredible musicality. Designed using the principles of barre technique (fatiguing each muscle through small, targeted movements), this class will effectively produce an exquisitely sculpted and lean body. Prepare to chisel your arms, shape your thighs, lift your bottom, and flatten your abs from a variety of positions using a mix of evolving, innovative choreography. No two classes are ever completely alike! To enhance accessibility, each instructor is skilled in providing safe modifications to help you design the perfect workout for your level.
Because our lives demand that we have a strong core, this is the perfect workout for beginners, barre enthusiasts, and Pilates devotees alike! Mat Physique combines the body sculpting system used in our Ballet Physique format with key concepts of mat Pilates. The goal is to target the body’s smaller, stabilizing muscle groups in order to create a figure that’s polished and balanced with a flat, strong midsection as its centerpiece. Similar to a traditional mat class, you can expect to work every segment of your abdominal, seat, and back muscles with an emphasis on alignment and breathing techniques. Tip: If you have joint issues, we highly recommend this format.
This hybrid workout will produce lean, sculpted, and lengthened muscles through an accelerated blend of strength training, cardiovascular movement, ballet postures, and guided stretches. During the first 40 minutes of class, you will receive a head-to-toe workout, following the guidelines of our signature Ballet Physique format (but at a faster pace). To conclude the hour, your instructor will dim the lights and lead into 20-minutes of deep, luxurious, uninterrupted stretching. It’s the perfect way to relieve stress, quiet the mind, and balance your muscular strength with flexibility and suppleness.
