ABOUT BARRE AT THE STUDIO BY ABSOLUTE PILATES
Barre is a low-impact, full body workout that uses elements from a traditional ballet barre and sets them to up-beat music to strengthen and lengthen your body.

Each class is a full body workout designed carefully to build lean muscle, increase flexibility, help with weight loss, and improve posture. Classes are low-impact and can be modified for most injuries and all fitness levels. You do NOT need a dance background or any experience. We are OPEN to everyone.
Pilates Mat classes are based in The Pilates Method, with some contemporary additions including different props and twists on the Classical Pilates exercises.
The Pilates Method is an approach in mind and body integration that was created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. The fundamental principles focus on balance, concentration, control, centered awareness, fluid movements, and breath. Pilates enhances core strength in addition to increasing flexibility, coordination and spatial awareness.
Pilates engages the whole person, not just the muscles. Pilates will develop and enhance stamina, posture, alignment and core strength for elite performance to everyday activities.
Suspend classes use a combination of The Pilates Suspension Method, TRX, Barre, and Yoga moves in the Suspension Trainer, which allows you to use your own body weight for a great workout.
The Pilates Suspension Method (PSM) combines traditional and contemporary mat Pilates and equipment-based Pilates exercises while performing them on the suspension trainer. Each PSM exercise is rooted in Pilates while using the suspension trainers for an additional challenge.
TRX was born in the Navy Seals and has since been adopted by premier athletes across the globe. TRX is scientifically proven to improve total-body strength, stability, and cardiovascular health.
