Embodied Anatomy: Pilates Mat Class 
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.

Dr. Serge Gracovetsky, a bioengineer, proposed the concept of the “spinal engine” as part of his work on the biomechanics of the human spine.
