Afoot Barre Online Demand
Afoot Barre brings together the best of how the ballet barre teaches you about your legs in standing, Pilates Connection of full body action and yoga.
A true ballet barre is a wonderful workout for your legs, hips and whole body with flow and fluidity. It starts by warming up all of your joints from the feet to your head slowly. The barre builds to faster and more demanding coordination of your whole body. It is a workout of your brain and entire body.
Especially with ACL tears in my knees, getting back to the ballet barre and standing poses of yoga have helped my physicality. Being older and with an injury, maintaining my physicality is essential. Walking up stairs can be uncomfortable if I don’t keep up this kind of workout.
For all levels. No dancing experience necessary.

The Power of feeling the down before the up.
3 Fridays 3:30 PM
In our attention to getting our workout done fast and strong, we forget about the most fundamental part of movement. Whatever our position; floor, quadruped, sitting or standing, how your body uses the ground is essential. Awareness of your sensing the ground is the precursor for successful movement.
When we ground, our connections to our body deepen. Quickly stand on a leg. Observe what you use to assist this movement. Now pay attention to your entire foot feeling the ground. Slowly shift weight on one leg and lift opposite leg up without losing the grounding forces of your standing foot. How does this change your physicality.
