Barre by Ella
Barre fitness is a super-energizing, whole-body workout that’s great for everyone, from beginners to pros. Each class is designed to build alignment, strengthen your core, and tone and elongate muscles. Think of it as offering all the body benefits of a ballet dancer—without attempting a pirouette.

To get in touch with Ella:
My barre workouts combine traditional elements of a classical ballet barre workout with Pilates. As an ex professional dancer and a ballet teacher myself, I very much focus on truly using the correct muscles dancers do to create that very strong dancers physique.
Barre workouts will tone the glutes, hamstrings, and calves, as well as your core, back and arms creating that long, lean dancer look. The workout itself is appropriate for everyone form beginners to pros as each exercises will have different variations from an easier option up to a very difficult option
The actual “barre” in class is used as a prop to help you balance, leaving you to focus on isometric strength exercises (ie. holding your body still while you contract a small and specific set of muscles). The movements might be small, but trust me you’ll feel the burn.
At the end of each class there will always be a full body stretch that would always be done at the end of any ballet class to improve flexibility and to prevent injury
