Stroller Barre® is a unique blend of ballet, Pilates, barre, yoga and stroller-based exercises designed to help moms build strength and muscle tone and improve posture. Created by a mom who was formerly a professional ballerina, this class incorporates prenatal and postnatal training and yields amazing results in an exciting, fun format. Postpartum women tend to have tight and weak pectoral (chest), abdominal and quadriceps muscles. In addition, the back and hamstrings muscles become stretched and weak. This occurs due to hunched posture from breast or bottle feeding, excessive spinal curves while carrying baby in utero and after birth, and repeatedly picking their new (and rapidly growing) baby up. Stroller Barre® focuses on strengthening and creating an ideal length/tension relationship in all the postural muscles, creating a taller, leaner-looking mommy!
Important: Be ready to sweat! We work hard, but we also encourage newbies to make modifications and pace themselves. Bring water to keep cool and hydrate. Bring a yoga mat or towel for ab work at the end of class. Bring snacks, drinks, toys, etc. for your child(ren). You'll also need resistance bands but first-timers can borrow them from the instructor. Be sure to register for your class(es) online.
