Education

Balanced Body Barre™

The only prerequisite? A passion for movement and the desire to share that passion with others.

Balanced Body Barre™ takes the best of the original Lotte Berk method and updates it with Balanced Body Movement Principles to create a high energy, safe and fun workout appropriate for all fitness levels and ages.

It is the ideal compliment to a Pilates practice, adding energy, new clientele and functional fitness. Balanced Body Barre™ instructor training covers Barre-based movement principles, class formats and music playlists for a variety of 60 minute classes.

This course gives participants the proper form and variations. Small props such as small balls, resistance bands and dumbbells are introduced.

Balanced Body Barre emphasizes safety and body awareness while keeping the intensity and high energy of a Barre workout at the forefront. Instructors will come away able to teach in any setting.

Balanced Body Barre™:

  • Provides variety and cross-training for you and your clients.
