What you will be doing
Total body is just that, total body strengthening, conditioning and workout. Barre is a great workout that combines not just dance, but also pilates, cardio, yoga and some good old school strength and tone fitness moves. Barre is also very much an interval, in that we will get your heart rate right up, then we'll go into moves where the body will be worked in a different way while the heart calms down ever so slightly before bring it back up. We focus greatly on the accuracy in the movement, alignment and posture. Let's get our bodies healthy, in tip top, happy condition to greet the beautiful sun, the rain, and whatever else that we will face with compassion and strength.
Please note: IN place of the small pilates ball, please feel free to use soft toys, small pillow, cushions, I use puffy winter hats stuffed with a scarf before I bought the ball. If you don't care to use any toys, then please just keep the hamstrings engaged by squeezing the heel as close to your bum as you can and immerse in the burn and the joyous knowledge that your body is getting stronger as you work.
We will have a nice bit of warm up that gets the whole body moving and awake, from our toes up to our necks and heads! Then we will grab hold of a table/chair or indeed, a barre if you have one- and get working in a more precise manner on our glutes and posture. Then we will move back onto the mat to finish off with abs and nice chest opener and back strengthening work. The orders of all these might switch around. I aim to get your whole body singing!
