Introduction

MK Pilates BARRE

MK Pilates Barre Programme is a license free group movement workout combining exercises inspired by Ballet and Pilates and Stretch Classes and repertoires.

The movements focus on alignment, conditioning and stretch. This program is for everybody and combines Pilates, and Ballet moves to give you beautiful, sculpted, lean muscles – without the impact and injuries dancers often have to endure. The other equally important aspect of Barre is the mental and physical focus it demands while, at the same time, you are having a fun.

The Barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on alignment, conditioning and stretch. This program is for everybody and if you do not have access to a Barre then a stable chair is a very practical substitute.

For any teacher one of the challenges is to stay current and innovative at the same time for both your own and the class participant’s enjoyment and benefits. As one of the hottest fitness trends right now this Barre programme offers you the chance to have busy classes now and in the future as Barre has existed as long as Ballet and will continue to achieve results for all ages and groups.

Each class programme we develop offers new music and choreographic combinations and movements to work with.
