Class Descriptions

Barre Class
Transform the shape of your body with this dancer inspired workout.  A muscle intensive workout designed to reshape and elongate the body.  Based on Lotte Burke and The Bar Method, a Pilates and yoga fashioned dancer's workout that burns calories and whips all your major muscle groups into a sculpted, long, lean shape

Hoola Hooping
A study conducted by the American Council on Exercise found that hula hooping burns approximately 210 calories in 30 minutes. This means that hula hooping is an excellent low impact form of exercise for weight management. Not only is hula hooping a great form of cardio and muscle toning, but it is also highly enjoyable. Hula hooping reduces stress, elevates mood, improves balance and coordination, and clears the mind. In this class you will learn waist hooping along with other beginner hoop dance movements and tricks, which will be incorporated into a dance. Barbara's handmade hoops will be provided for class free of charge, but if you would like to purchase a hoop from her to take home and practice that is an option as well.

Here is a link to an excellent article on the benefits of hula hooping
