Pure Barre: a Former Dancer’s Dream

Hey y’all! It’s been a while, but I wanted to hop in real quick and share something I’ve been doing lately.

I’ve been taking barre at Pure Barre, and you guys, I’m obsessed. I danced for 18 years, and LOVED ballet class and all of the strength that came from it. Pure Barre is like ballet with a twist. They play upbeat music, use small low-impact movements, and add weights and bits of cardio. 

As an exdancer, I have all of the aches and pains that come with it. That’s part of the reason why I LOVE going. Also, recent research showing that static stretching before a workout can be dangerous has had me second guessing everything I learned. PB seems to be pretty up to date on this, and saves the static for the cool-down at the end, and instead starts you off with dynamic movements. 
I’ll update ya later about my progress and any changes I see! Stay tuned.
