The BarreConcept is one of the latest fitness concepts taking the UK by storm. Founded in ballet and Pilates techniques, with a focus on strength and conditioning, the BarreConcept is a high powered, fast paced and fun way to sculpt your body.

The low impact, total body workout lifts the butt, tones the thighs, flattens the abs and sculpts the arms, whilst protecting the joints. Small isometric contractions are performed and integrated with an interval training approach that burns fat and develops cardiovascular fitness. Posture, alignment, flexibility, stamina and core strength improve. The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously and efficiently.

This is an intense yet accessible work out offering a wide range of variations and modifications, making it suitable for all abilities and experiences; no previous ballet experience required. Barre Concept is the perfect complement to your yoga practice, helping you to feel grounded and strong on the mat, from head to toe.

When can I try it out?

Fierce Grace Brixton will be hosting two Barre Concept sessions in the upcoming weeks:

  • 13:30-14:45 Saturday 26th September
  • 13:30-14:45 Saturday 24th October

The sessions will be led by our very own Grace Farmer. Grace is a fully qualified BarreConcept teacher and has been teaching across the country for the last two years. Previous to teaching Barre, Grace has 20 years of dance and performance experience and is of course, a dedicated yogi at Fierce Grace Brixton.

“My sessions are always set to fun, upbeat music to help motivate you as we work through some tough exercises that are guaranteed to make you ‘feel the burn’. Expect to get sweaty, feel energized and push yourself. I promise you’ll enjoy it!”
