Floor Barre Course for Adults

Body sculpting floor barre exercises are all performed on the floor and are based around typical ballet-type movements.

They are suitable for everyone, and are not aimed solely at ballet dancers! Our range of clients include dancers, fitness competitors, gymnasts, skaters, athletes, recreational exercisers, and regular gym goers - including older adults, all of whom have experienced the benefits. We have used this mat-based method for decades for whole body conditioning, without the added stress on joints that can come from working in a “turned-out” position while standing. Stretch, strength, posture, and core work are combined with musicality, breath and dynamics for a complete mind-body experience. Floor barre exercises can add variety to almost any muscle conditioning or stretching-style class or workout.  Physiological benefits include improved flexibility, coordination and body awareness, activation of stabilisers and postural muscles, improved skeletal alignment and awareness, and a long, lean and strong physique.

Movements are performed lying flat, lying on the side, prone, and seated and are often sequenced together to form a short routine. Floor barre classes cover a range of strengthening and stretching exercises working through the various body planes.
