Who is BeyondBarre for?

  • BeyondBarre is for everybody! Each instructor is trained to instruct clients of all fitness levels and abilities. If you have an injury, instructors use specific modifications to prevent further injury and also strengthen the weakened area of the body. Each class is set to a certain rhythm and pace but encourages each client to work at their ability and listen to their body. Instructors promote support and camaraderie within each class. You do not have to be flexible or a dancer to take barre class.
