Today we switch it up to Barre!!
But before you get excited and jump into class, I’ve got a quick story for you and please read to the end of the page for some great news & tips for tomorrow’s class.
If this is your first time trying Barre, you’re in for a treat!
It’s often described as a mix of Pilates & Ballet.
I naturally gravitated towards Barre, because I danced for from 5 – 16 years old.
You’re in good hands, (not only for Pilates, as I’ve taught that for over 19 years) but also for Barre.
I originally trained in America, where it all began and was honoured to be the first to teach Barre in Australia, in my Pilates Studio, Emergy Pilates Lounge.
I became a teacher trainer and travelled all throughout Asia and Australia training new instructors.
I’m thrilled to give you a little taster of some of the Barre exercises during the challenge.
I know you’ll love it!
You’ll need either a chair or bench to be able to hold the onto for balance.
Be sure to have something fixed if you feel you need more support.

3. Great news!! You can stream to the TV!
All you need is a Chrome Cast (a small device that plugs into the back of the TV)
Then you can download an app, the one I have is called “Streamer for Chrome-cast”
It’s super simple and easy to use! I use apple phone but you can get the apps on Android as well.
Then all you do is mirror your device! Basically whatever you have on your phone or tablet shows on the TV!
So head to your local store and get a Chrome cast – it will be perfect for the remainder of the challenge!
As always let me know how you go.
Come on over and check in on Facebook or on the comments on the site.
See you on the Mat!
PS: For tomorrow’s barre class you can use small 1 pound hand weights. This is optional as you will still get a good workout without weights.
If you don’t have hand weights approx you can use small water bottles filled with water, soup or baked bean cans!
