Props, props, props! Clients love props, and when you incorporate them into a lively, music-inspired barre class, they not only provide a fun and intense challenge, but ensure target muscles are firing effectively, and clients are getting the desired results. This four-hour workshop, developed by the Merrithew™ team, follows the 11-Segment, one-hour class template, introduced in the Total Barre Foundation Course. Learn unique, energetic choreography coupled with effective cues to reinforce safe biomechanics for each movement of the workout. The added resistance of a Flex-Band®, and Ankle Tubing effectively activates stabilizing and mobilizing muscles and the addition of the Mini Stability Ball™ provides both support and challenge. This workout, choreographed to a great selection of music, is a wonderful addition to your barre program.
