At ABX, we BARRE SO HARD—in a good way! Our signature fast-paced, high-energy barre class combines dance-inspired positions using the ballet barre, light weights, and mat work. A dynamic series of small muscle movements and isometric holds target core and upper body, thighs, seat, and abs with mindful stretching throughout. Our method is designed so that you walk away feeling stronger, longer, standing taller, and with a ballerina’s grace. Our instructors are constantly changing up routines so you’ll stay challenged and never plateau.
Ready to take your barre workout to the next level? We’ve added a cardio component to your beloved Barre X class, featuring the familiar core-stabilizing, muscle-toning movements with an added kick—literally. In just 45 minutes, including warm-up and cool-down, you’re challenged to pick up the pace and break a sweat without losing form. With one foot on the ground at all times, students benefit from a low-impact exercise that’s easy on the joints, while increasing calorie burn with specified interval training that elevates heart rate between isometric holds and active recovery periods. Familiarity with Barre X class highly recommended.
Most of us—even yogis—don’t stretch enough. With Yin there’s no choice but to quiet the mind and fully relax in stillness. Poses are held for several minutes to focus on stretching connective tissue, which improves joint health and range of motion. The perfect complement to all your intense ABX classes, our 60-minute Yin class is offered on Sunday—the day of rest, of course.
