OMBE's New Ballet Barre Class Time: Mondays @ 6:30pm

From the desk of Jessica L. Molleur, Lic.Ac., DNBAO... This fall OMBE is happy to announce its new Ballet Barre class time: Mondays at 6:30pm with Kristen Reynolds!  Here's a few frequently asked questions about our ballet barre classes and OMBE's ballet barre studio in Boston:

 

Q. What is ballet barre?

 

A. This class presents a series of exercises that strengthen and lengthen arms and legs, stabilize the core, elongate the spine, and enhance balance. The workout is completed at a barre and on the mat, combining classical repertoire from ballet and Joseph Pilates, as well as evidence-based therapeutic exercises.

Q. I’m not a dancer. Is this class appropriate for me?

A. This workout was designed by a physical therapist to be a fun and effective method for individuals with varied ages, abilities, and experiences. While the class does include ballet-inspired choreography, it is not solely for the dancers or those with experience. When notified, the instructor will be pleased to modify exercises for injuries as well.

Q. What is the benefit of this workout?

A. The exercises are presented in a sequence that sculpts and stretches the whole body and elevates heart rate. Participants can expect to see changes in posture, balance, flexibility, and muscle performance.

Q. Do I need to wear or bring anything special to class?

A. Not at all - just come and enjoy your workout! OMBE is proud to incorporate eco-friendly Pilates mats, high-quality Fit Circles, Rejuvenation Mini-Core Balls, and Resist-A-Bands into this class for variety, challenge, and helping individuals experience a deeper muscular connection to the exercises. It is essential for the instructor to be able to observe proper form and alignment for to optimize the safety and effectiveness of the workout. Therefore, we kindly request that you wear comfortable, form fitting athletic clothes. Bare feet are acceptable, but ToeSox are recommended for traction with standing repertoire and can be purchased at OMBE.
