At Breaking Barre, we offer a variety of classes that can effectively serve as your entire fitness program, incorporating strength, cardio and restoration. Find a workout that works for you!
Our most popular class fuses functional movement, Pilates, yoga and basic ballet postures with low weight/high rep strength training, low-impact cardio and stretching using a neutral spine for maximum safety. You'll use your body weight, hand weights, resistance/stability props, and the barre to target muscles in your arms, legs, seat, abs, chest and back. We encourage each individual to modify postures and take breaks, as needed, while developing a mind-body connection. Modifications and advancements are offered to accommodate all fitness levels. Our method burns fat, builds lean muscle, strengthens joints, and improves flexibility and balance. (Sticky socks are recommended.)
Unleash your inner beast with this new fusion spin on cardio kickboxing! This high-intensity interval training workout combines the best of barre and cardio kickboxing to improve your coordination, strength, and cardiovascular endurance.

There's no physical contact (no punching bag), which protects your joints and prevents injury. You'll leave class sweaty and empowered! (Sticky socks or bare feet are recommended.)
Get ready for a high intensity, low impact barre/rebounder (mini trampoline) fusion workout that will torch calories and leave you feeling energized! This hybrid class alternates between resistance-focused barre exercises and cardio bounce sequences. A study conducted by NASA concluded that rebounding is the most efficient form of exercise! Benefits include weight loss; boosted immune system; increased lymphatic flow; strengthened pelvic floor; reduced back pain, depression, anxiety, and stress; and improved blood sugar levels, bone density, core strength, and cardiovascular endurance! Barre Bounce is designed to accommodate all levels of fitness and experience. (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended.)
Barre Asana fuses elements of barre, yoga, and low-impact cardio set to fun music for a comprehensive fitness experience. You'll challenge your balance and strength with barre and yoga-focused postures involving small range-of-motion pulsing and isometric holds. Large range-of-motion, fluid cardio movements are incorporated to drive up the heart-rate and burn calories. (Sticky socks are recommended.)
Barre Stretch is a gentle class that will increase your flexibility and range of motion while decreasing your risk of injury. Stretching also increases blood flow and nutrient supply to your muscles, which can help your muscles recover from workouts faster and reduce muscle soreness. This class will heat up your muscles with very brief, resistance-focused exercises designed to loosen stiff muscles, followed by long, peaceful stretches to release tension and improve overall performance. Barre Stretch will also help calm your mind and give your body a chance to recharge while enjoying carefully curated music. All flexibility and fitness levels welcome! (Sticky socks or bare feet recommended.)
This strength-focused barre class will feature some of our heavier weights! We will bring in many aspects of traditional strength-training, using heavier weights combined with traditional barre props to keep the movement functional and focused, targeting one muscle group at a time. This class will still feature the combination work of barre, giving a cardio push for the heart rate as well! (Sticky socks are recommended).
Similar to Classic Barre, with the primary focus on strengthening core muscles, including the abdominals/obliques, glutes and back. Strong, stable core muscles help effectively coordinate movement to our arms, legs and spine. This reduces our chance of being injured and improves balance, posture, coordination, and performance in sports. (Sticky socks are recommended.)
Strengthen your body and engage your "powerhouse" with this invigorating strength class rooted in the fundamentals of Pilates and strength training. Power Pilates incorporates both mat work and vertical Pilates exercises with props to replicate the reformer, while challenging balance and stabilizer muscles better than a reformer machine would.
