Grab your mat and enjoy the beautiful weather outside while doing barre this summer. People often ask me, how can you do barre without a barre? Barre is a mixture of Pilates, Yoga, Dance and Strength Training exercises. You do not have to have a barre. There is lots of mat work that can be done in place of the barre work. Almost everything we do in a barre class can be done without the barre. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good barre class at the studio. I love to use the mirrors, balls, weights, and of course the barre, but it can also be fun to get creative and change things up. Whenever we have class outside it reminds me of high school. We had a tradition at Virginia School of the Arts, where I danced, on nice days we would ask for class outside. It didn’t happen often but when it did it was such a treat. We would take all the barres outside and get to dance in the sunshine. It felt so amazing!
So if you haven’t taken class outside join us for one of our events at Backyard Tap. We have pop up classes in Loveland, Co and Backyard Tap is a great outdoor venue. Or take your mat outside for one of our On Demand or Virtual Classes.
