Total Barre® Modified for Special Populations


Clients with limited mobility or restricted movement need not shy away from exercise. Research shows that all active adults can benefit from exercising with music as it helps improve learning and memory, builds self-esteem, reduces stress and increases social interaction. Following the Total Barre® template, appropriate Total Barre principles are taught to help with cueing, motivating and modifying safely for less mobile, active adult clients to an upbeat collection of Merrithew Music tracks. Leave with a client program that increases flexibility, balance and postural stability.
