Bring a mat and step out of your comfort zone (and your shoes!) to reap the rewards of Barefoot training.
Did you know that your feet have a lot of nerve endings and visceral sensors that feed info directly into your spinal cord. Your muscles and spinal cord have some intelligence of their own! They sometimes circumvent the brain and just adjust your movement based on the info that your feet and ankles send regarding changes in the surface that you are walking on and more.
A classical approach to Barre training emphasizing upper body training sculpting with light weights, with thigh, seat & core sculpting. Barre emphasizes barefoot training(no shoes), but toe sox are highly recommended for support and grip in Barre classes.

This yoga, pilates and ballet inspired class focuses on isolated exercises, alignment, flexibility and posture.
