combining pilates, ballet, yoga + functional fitness, barre uses isometric movements with the power of music to increase strength, flexibility, stamina + dynamic stability. it is a class geared for everyone, regardless of age, fitness level or background, as long as you can hold a ballet barre, you can do barre. that’s not to say that it’s easy, your first class will likely feel challenging, but we encourage you to stick with it. isometric contractions that make up the bulk of a barre class occur when the muscle tenses without changing length + those tiny movements help you get stronger. think of these muscle contractions as the opposite of typical strength training moves (or concentric and eccentric contractions), which occur when a muscle stretches then shortens (as in a biceps curl). try your hardest, let loose + feel free to ask your instructor plenty of questions after class if you weren’t clear on any of the moves. we have two types of barre classes - classic + move. see below for futher details.

Our signature Barre Classic class is perfect for all – from the barre virgins, to the regulars. Classes begin at the barre and end on the mat, with exercises engaging specific muscle groups at a time. Using isometric movements combined with the power of music to increase strength, flexibility, stamina, and dynamic stability. No ballet experience is required, as these are not dance classes (but feel free to drop it low if a banger comes on).
A heart-pumping, invigorating class with a somewhat looser structure than Classic. As always, beginning at the barre to warm up, and then it’s up to the instructor to guide you through the exercises – barre, or barre-less! Don’t be daunted by this class, while it is more intense than a Classic, it is a lively session that you will let you get your sweat on and leave you feeling energised!
a sequence of controlled exercises that engage your mind + condition the entire body. the blend of strength + flexibility training improves posture, reduces stress + tones muscles with the weight of your body and resistance, rather than bulking.
SoBa mat flow classes are an energetic + dynamic practice, with flows that integrate a balance of strength + flexibility, ensuring the body is ready for the class’s peak pose. yoga sequences will challenge your cardiovascular fitness as you move, sweat, stretch + breathe. no two classes are ever the same, but there is a consistent focus on core strength, alignment, posture + connection.
an amazing class for the mind and body. comparable to a yin yoga class, each stretch is held for three to five minutes, allowing time for the muscles to cease initial resistance, lengthen + relax. the focus on deep breathing allows you be comfortable with being uncomfortable – temporarily. the release of a deeply held stretch is a sensation like no other + will help you achieve greater flexibility + strength in other classes.
our hiit class combines elements of high-intensity interval training, circuit training + barre. the combination of interval, cardiovascular + strength training is an effective workout method for fat burning + lean muscle building. starting on the mat to warm up,you then move into the set circuit for two rounds. challenge yourself each week with ever-changing exercises!
