ABOUT BARRE AT PFI

Barre is sweaty and fun, is a fusion of dance, Pilates and functional fitness, is low impact cardio with awesome tunes and will make you long and lean.

We have a style to suit every. body.

Barre applies the principles of Pilates at the classic ballet barre to provide low impact, high-intensity cardiovascular benefits for a balanced, lean, whole-body workout.

A dynamic fusion of Pilates, Ballet and functional fitness, Barre is the perfect cardio complement to your Pilates training-mix. No dance or Pilates experience is required to participate!

PFI’s two Barre formats were created in consultation with dance, Pilates and other allied health professionals (Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists and Doctors) to ensure that while classes move at a dynamic pace, they are also safe and scalable for every body. This stands in stark contrast to other Barre methods in the market today. At PFI, our Barre classes are led by experienced Pilates Instructors only, no PTs, no ring-ins: so you know you’re in safe hands every time.

Barre Attack combines flowing sequences of low impact, high intensity standing Pilates and cardio bursts with modified Ballet repertoire at the barre; and PFI’s in-house Barre Physique style is a unique, integrated format that features flowing, full-range Pilates sequences at the barre and on the mat, inter-spliced with cardio sets and plenty of isometric work!

What can you expect from a Barre class with us?

  • A fun work out, with killer tunes.
  • Warming, flowing whole body movement.
  • Targeted, deep burn (legs, butt, arms, back and abdominals).
  • Creative challenge and resistance using props such as weights, balls and resistance bands.
  • Low impact cardio intervals.

Are you pregnant or post natal? PFI also runs dedicated pregnancy and post natal Barre classes so you can enjoy tailored and safe barre programming! This means you can work hard with the confidence that your teacher has a well thought out plan for your body at this special stage in life.
