Every Barre Fitness class at Yoga Treat Fitness Studio is fun and empowering class set to today’s hottest music.

The ballet barre is used to sculpt the lower body, abs and for flexibility training.
What is a ballet barre used for?A barre (French pronunciation: [baʁ]) is a stationary handrail that provides support for people during various types of exercise. Barres are used extensively in ballet training and warm up exercises, where such exercises are commonly referred to as barre work.
BarreTreat: Levels 1 & 2
A combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements.” The class also incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.
CardioBarre: Levels 2 and up
This high-energy, no-impact class is safe on your joints and muscles. Sculpt your body from head to toes with the use of Bosu Balls, Gliders, Resistance Bands and Light Hand Weights.

Using the foam roller to loosen the tension in your muscles provides an excellent way of obtaining the benefits of self-myofascial release. By performing Self-Myofascial Release techniques on a simple foam roller, you can improve flexibility, function, performance, reduce injuries by massaging muscles, improving circulation and training intrinsic muscle groups.
Why Foam Rolling : Foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release or self-massage. Athletes and non-athletes alike suffer from muscle tightness, imbalances and “trigger points” that occur when contracted muscle fails to release. These adhesions, or knots, can lead to poor circulation of blood and nutrients to the muscle fiber, which can eventually lead to pain or injury.
When you use a roller to roll along the length of your muscle, you’re helping lengthen and release these “sticky points,” enabling your muscles to return to their original and intended length. Overall results include:
-Improved circulation and delivery of oxygen, nutrients and blood to the muscle. This helps your muscles to function at optimum capacity, to recover efficiently, and to remove waste products effectively.
-Decreased pain and soreness. Many muscle knots are painful! They’re either painful to the touch, or because of where they’re located, they’re painful during movement, which can result in altered range of motion.
-Decreased likelihood of injury. An altered range of motion due to painful knots or a shortening of the muscle fibers due to persistent contraction can lead to muscle imbalances and injury.
-Rolling out the knots and keeping your muscles long and pliable reduces the likelihood of injury.
-Increased range of motion. Regular use of a foam roller can even help you increase your range of motion as you loosen up tight areas and help clear scar tissue.

Flow Yoga level 1& 2 : LEVEL 1/2 – All of the components of our Level 1 classes including the safely guided introduction of more challenging sequences, inversion preparation, breathing techniques and meditation. A bridge between basics and intermediate. Find balance between effort and relaxation in a class that combines the strength of held postures and the serenity of breath-directed movement. Classes are based around the the fluid movements of the sun salutation and other breath-directed movements.
Power Yoga: Power Yoga is definitely an intense workout that will make you sweat. A traditional Ashtanga practice follows the same series of poses and makes you hold each for five breaths before moving through a Vinyasa. Power Yoga classes move with an even faster rhythm.
Gentle Hatha Yoga: A great class for beginners—and everyone interested in exploring a gentle practice. This class includes basic breathing exercises, as well as a variety of foundational postures (standing, seated, and on the floor). Note This class calls for a yoga mat, a blanket, two blocks, and a strap.
Restorative: Restorative yoga is something completely different. It’s about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. During these long holds, your muscles relax deeply. It’s a completely different feeling from other types of yoga classes since props are used to support your body instead of your muscles. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
Deepen your practice, gain confidence, and receive guidance from a teacher to develop a practice tailored to your individual needs. Personal instruction is an invaluable tool for students of all levels and experience. Personal, private yoga lessons are the best way to address your goals and work on areas of individual interest. You can work with the teacher of your choice or we can match a teacher to meet your expressed needs. We encourage ongoing personal yoga instruction outside of the classroom setting to maximize the benefits of yoga.
Personal instruction allows for a more intimate view into your practice. You can start a new practice, deepen your practice or spend some time working with an injury or condition. When you work with a teacher one on one, the teacher is able to help you experience the benefits of yoga in a safe, personal way.

For new students
As a new student, you may be intimidated by the public classroom environment. Personal Instruction allows a teacher the opportunity to focus on you and make sure you are getting off to an appropriate start. Personal yoga instruction will help you integrate into our public classes.
For more experienced students
Experienced students benefit as well. You are able to have a deeper insight into specific postures or categories of postures that interest you. Personal yoga instruction is the perfect learning environment. Our teachers can help you with posture alignment, modifications and can help you develop a balanced home practice. It can also give the experienced student time to learn about yoga philosophy or other aspects of interest, such as meditation and breathing practices.
