Let’s meet at the Barre…

By Vanessa, our fitness editor

Barre was born around fifty years ago and has two kinds. One which is close to a dance and the other closer to Pilates. Barre 2 Barre invites you to discover the latter. I tried the “Barre Amped” class with Mylene, the classical practice, great for stretching and strengthening muscles at the core, all the while burning fat (because we’re not here to mess around!)
 
The workout is considered “low impact”, meaning no risk for your joints. But this doesn’t stop it from being challenging: a constant flow of movement and postures using the fixed barre and weights, listening to fast-paced beats. You’re in for a complete body workout! Classes are limited to 12-15 people, which adds to the experience!
 
Mylene and Karen discovered barre practice in London, through Yoga and Pilates, in fact that’s how they met. Completely taken by it, they slowly became qualified instructors and brought the sport to Hong Kong in 2012. Starting by giving classes here and there in a few dance studios, they then decided to do dedicate their full time to this passion. And that’s how Barre 2 Barre came to open its doors last October. Their charming studio inside a building on Cochrane Street is really inviting and even has a quaint little terrace, and can even be rented for private class events!
 
To wrap up, a class that can be adapted to different levels with varied intensity, great attentive teachers, nestled in a cocoon-like studio in the heart of Central. What else needs to be said?
 
Barre 2 Barre offers a few different kinds of “Barre Amped” classes, varied intensity and difficulty levels, more or less cardio, from 45 to 60 min.
They also have a “Yoga + Barre” class – with 45 min on the barre followed by 30min of yoga, with a different teacher invited every class – and a “Back Rehab Pilates Mat class” – which focuses of abdominal strengthening, specific back soothing movements and improving flexibility/
Every quarter they have a special free evening event: “Barre + Wine”…. You just need to keep an eye on their Facebook page to stay updated!
 
HK$ 250 per class
HK$ 2300 set of 10 classes
HK$4200 for 20 classes
Monthly memberships also available.
