Pure Barre's benefits extend beyond the physical. The challenging workout requires practitioners to leave their mental baggage at the door and focus solely on what they're doing. It's a meditative type of experience similar to yoga. The difference? You'll see rapid changes in your body when you regularly attend a barre class.
This doesn't mean you'll have to sacrifice the safety of your muscles, though. Unlike high-intensity exercise routines, Pure Barre enlists a series of low-impact movements to build lean and strong bodies without putting any stress on your joints. There's zero jumping involved. Instead, students use the ballet barre for balance as they move through small, isometric exercises that target specific problem areas all over the body, from the hips to the arms. Sign up for a class this week to learn what all the Pure Barre buzz is about.
