Sessions

At Breaking Barre, we offer a large selection of in studio and live virtual 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 have fun while 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.)

BARRE flow

Similar to our Classic Barre session, Barre Flow fuses ballet, yoga and Pilates postures with continual fat-burning motion, incorporating both small and large range-of-motion exercises using a neutral spine. You’ll utilize your own body weight, as well as weights and light props to facilitate a holistic class that incorporates stretching, strength, stability and stamina. The consistent flow of class and (at least one) cardio series per class keeps the heart pumping. Participants are encouraged to modify postures and have fun while developing a mind-body connection. (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 ballet socks are recommended for this session.)

barre brawl

Unleash your inner beast with this new fusion spin on cardio kickboxing!  This 60-minute, high-intensity workout combines the best of barre and cardio kickboxing to improve your coordination, strength, and cardiovascular endurance.  Punching and kicking combinations are performed to the beat of the music, and coupled with barre exercises for maximum results.  There's no physical contact (no punching bag) to protect joints and ensure safety.  You'll leave class sweaty and empowered to take on any challenge!  (Sticky socks or bare feet are recommended for this session.)

Balletone

Balletone is non-stop cardio and strength that blends techniques drawn from ballet, Pilates, and fitness. As a low impact session, this workout is designed for all fitness levels and develops musical endurance, balance, full-body strength (with an emphasis on core strength), and agility! Filled with flowing and dynamic sequences that are performed center-floor, this class will leave you feeling strong, graceful, and elegant. No dance experience necessary!  (Bare feet or Bellarina Toe Sox 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.)

cardio yoga

Cardio Yoga is a flowing sequence of dynamic yoga asanas (yoga postures set into dynamic movement). The class experience is an emotional voyage, guiding students to break through negativity and obstacles while teaching for their highest potential. This sweat drenched journey uses movement patterns that are specifically designed not only to give you a great workout, but to evoke an emotional journey as well, creating uplifting feelings of joy and confidence. (Bare feet 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.)

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.) 
*Appropriate for Prenatal Yoga

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.) 

hatha flow yoga

This session provides an arc shaped format, beginning and ending with pranayama (breathing) and mindful relaxation. In between, a balance of time in asana (postures) and flow is incorporated to build strength. An abundance of stretching is scattered throughout the session to counter strength-building components. Challenge yourself to find that mind-body connection, and leave feeling re-energized mentally and physically. Poses are safe and effective for all fitness and experience levels.  (Bare feet or sticky socks are recommended for this session.) 

Roll Restore Release

Keep your body ageless and agile with a Roll Restore Release class!  This class addresses areas of tightness and imbalance and focuses on multiple areas for a full-body class of Self-Myofascial Release (SMR). Foam rollers, massage balls, and yoga straps are used to apply pressure to areas of soft tissue (muscle and fascia) to stimulate circulation of blood and oxygen, and restore the length of tissues thus allowing you to recover faster and move easier, while increasing flexibility, relaxation, and agility. * This class is not suited for: new injuries, injuries with inflammation, acute Neuropathies, Pregnancy, Diabetes, Hypertension, Osteoporosis, and severe varicose veins. (Bare feet or sticky 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.
