One of the things I’m looking forward to in the new year are the barre classes that I will be teaching in a heated yoga studio!
I recently stopped by the studio to check it out, play with the space and test out a barre series in the heat.
The sweat definitely started fast!
It was fun to try something new and it’s even more fun to develop and create something new!
I’ve always loved hot yoga so getting to combine the two worlds of hot yoga detoxing and barre strengthening, this class will definitely be a killer combo of burn and challenge!
It’s fun because one of the things that will be focused on is being able to connect the practice and principles of Yoga, Pilates and Ballet training and to make them all relevant in practice to best aid in conditioning the body to be strong in all.
Add that heat in and booyakasha, you have yourself a solid sweat sesh that will not only challenge you but will also help you improve those Chaturanga’s in your yoga practice.
Mixing up your workout every 6 weeks or so is really great to keep your body consistently developing, changing and improving.
It doesn’t take too much, but by switching it up every so often, your body won’t plateau and you will keep seeing and feeling results!
And this barre class will most definitely have some fun flavour and spice added into it with the heat to mix up any fitness routine!
The heat, first off, adds a natural cardiovascular level into the workout as the heart rate will go up more easily with the elevated temperature.
This is why the exercises will be more concentrated, broken down to basics, isolating, isometrics and body weight exercises.
Think power yoga meets standing Pilates mixed with floor barre.
In other words, a for sure way to get sleek, slender and strong post-holiday season.
Now are you excited for January?
I know I am :)
