Created by former professional ballerina Miranda Esmonde-White, the Barre has been integrated into the Essentrics® technique since the very beginning. Essentrics® draws on many of the lengthening-while-strengthening principles found in ballet to help decompress tight joints, release tight muscles, increase flexibility and shape your body.
Intuitive and balanced, Essentrics® Barre gently challenges the muscles to extend past their habitually shortened length, helping you access your true potential for strength and flexibility. Feel your body unlock and find yourself working deeper into muscles you haven’t felt before!
Sustainable and easy-to-follow, the Essentrics® Barre Workout features a variety of tailor-made combinations. .
