Sessions

At Breaking Barre, we offer a large selection of studio sessions that can effectively serve as your entire fitness program or supplement other types of fitness. We offer strength, cardio and restoration sessions. Find a workout that works for you.

CLASSIC BARRE 

Our most popular session fuses ballet, yoga and Pilates postures with both small and large-range-of-motion exercises using a neutral spine for maximum safety. You'll use your body weight, hand and ankle weights, light props and the barre to target muscles in your arms, legs, seat, abs, chest and back and then engage in static, passive and dynamic stretching. We encourage each individual to modify postures and focus on developing a mind-body connection. Our method burns fat, builds long, lean muscle, strengthens joints and improves flexibility. (Sticky socks are recommended for this session.)

EXPRESS BARRE

Think Classic Barre, but shorter and slightly more intense. You’ll perform many of the same strength-building exercises and stretches to achieve a complete full-body workout in just 40 minutes. (Sticky socks are recommended for this session.)

BALLET BARRE

This session incorporates Classic Barre elements with an emphasis on ballet postures and graceful movements designed to tone long, lean muscle.  You don't need to be a ballerina to participate, but you'll feel like one afterward! (Ballet shoes or socks are recommended for this session.)

Dance fitness

Burn fat while you jam out to your favorite music in this high-energy cardio blast session. Dance Fitness blends easy-to-follow dance moves with plyometrics for maximum effectiveness. No dance experience necessary! You’ll have so much fun, it won’t even feel like a workout. Bring your friends to make it a real dance party! (Tennis shoes are recommended for this session.)

adult ballet

This session will make you feel like a real-life ballerina. Whether you've never taken a ballet class before, or you've danced all your life, this session has something for you. You'll participate in the standard components of a ballet class, including barre, center, adagio, allegro and reverence. Our modifications and alternative options provide a customized experience for beginners and seasoned ballerinas alike. The best part is, you'll be getting a great workout while you dance! (Ballet shoes or socks are recommended for this session.)

tabata/zen

Tabata/Zen is a combination of interval cardio (also known as Tabatas or High-Intensity Interval Training) and grounding meditation, all in one comprehensive session. This research-backed session provides proven benefits like significant weight loss, increased self-esteem and decreased clinical depression. During this session, the brain is activated by Tabata training followed by meditation to strengthen both body and mind. Studies have shown the long-term benefits of this workout are greater than those achieved by meditation or exercise alone! (Tennis shoes are recommended for this session.)

mat pilates

Strengthen your body and engage your "powerhouse" with this invigorating floor conditioning session rooted in the fundamentals of Pilates. You'll reap all the benefits of a traditional Pilates class, including toning, improved flexibility, better posture and a mind-body connection. (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.)

pop pilates

POP Pilates® is an incredible fusion of ab-chiseling and total body defining moves choreographed to upbeat pop songs. This intense, mat-based workout challenges students to rhythmically flow from one exercise to the next, developing a rock solid core while leaving no muscle untouched. (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.)

Barrelates

Get the best of both worlds with Barrelates! This fusion class combines the dynamic, dance-inspired movements of barre with the lengthening, strengthening exercises of mat Pilates. This class incorporates upbeat music and is both challenging and fun. All fitness levels welcome!  (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.)

Yoga Flow - mixed level

This mixed-level session is designed for yoga students who enjoy a little more intensity than a gentle or level 1 yoga class. This session builds upon classical asanas (postures), offering a broader range of asanas, pranayama, and meditation, as well as strength-building with grace in mind and body. Find your peace through exploring this ancient practice, learning a variety of asanas and practical ways to promote mindfulness in your life. Learn how to advance your practice on and off the mat.  (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.)

yoga sculpt

Yoga Sculpt for weight loss is a yoga practice geared toward increasing muscle tone, burning fat and incorporating the mindfulness of a more traditional yoga practice. This session focuses on building strength with specific movement combinations that can be enhanced with the use of hand weights. Breathwork is incorporated to increase metabolism, as well as core work to tone and strengthen the abdominal and back muscles. This session requires some yoga experience and is not intended for a beginner. (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.) 

back and hips yoga

This gentle session offers safe and effective postures and stretches to address lumbar pain/strain, sciatica, the SI joint, and other common back ailments. Gentle poses are incorporated to help alleviate tension as well as chronic cervical pain. The therapeutic approach of this session aims to reduce pain and inflammation, increase circulation and improve function and range of motion through the spine and hips. This session is not recommended for acute back or neck problems. Always consult your health care provider before starting any exercise program.  (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.)
