Barre Classes on the Gold Coast

Barre, Barre Classes on the Gold Coast

Barre classes on the Gold Coast at ROUX Wellness Studios are a mix of rigorous workout blends from elements of pilates, ballet, yoga and aerobic exercises. 

We welcome first-timers to our barre classes and our instructors will help guide you into the correct position so you get used to moving your body in new and fun ways.

Barre class is named for the primary piece of equipment: the bar. If you’ve ever been in a ballet studio, this piece of equipment will be familiar. You’ll also use other equipment, like a mat, which you’re familiar with if you’ve ever tried yoga and mat Pilates, as well as many other small pilates props to keep the body challenged in every barre workout. You can pick how heavy you want your weights to be, and your instructor will walk you through the proper use of each piece of equipment. We will explain how you can integrate the equipment into the barre class to get the best workout for you.

Getting the best workout possible means you’re going to be working a lot of different muscle groups. You can expect barre class to address multiple areas of your body, including your: Arms, legs, core and glutes. It is a full body workout that will help tone your whole body while also getting your heart rate up for most of the class with some great music to help keep you motivated throughout the session. On occasion you will most probably break a sweat so we recommend bringing a sweat towel and a water bottle 

If you have any pre existing injuries or concerns we would suggest starting with a private pilates class so we can assess and advise the next step of your pilates programme. Click here to see more about Our Classes or more about Our Packages.
